Meet Dr. Brett Skinner

I was Lucky

“I was lucky,” remembers Dr. Skinner. “I grew up in Davenport, Iowa, where chiropractic was founded. When I got hurt playing football, and at my size it was easy to get hurt, the back of my head went completely numb. After three days of the numbness I finally went to my family doctor. He immediately sent me over to the chiropractor who also happened to be my best friend’s dad. You see, in Davenport, MD’s and Chiropractors have been working together for years. To this day I remember the feeling of that first adjustment. Within an hour I had the feeling back in my skull and was ‘sold’ on chiropractic!”

“Over the years I stayed under chiropractic care,” continues Dr. Skinner, “and when I came back from college for the summer, my friend’s dad invited me to observe in his clinic for the week. I was completely amazed at the stories his patients told me. I had never really seen people that actually looked forward to seeing a doctor. It was then and there that I decided to become a chiropractor.”

Chiropractic Education

Dr. Skinner did his pre-chiropractic education at Iowa State University and then went on to graduate from chiropractic school in 1991 at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa, the “Harvard” of chiropractic and where chiropractic was first discovered and taught.

“I believe the key to being a good doctor is to listen to the patient and communicate with that patient so that everybody understands more about their health and can make better decisions regarding their health,” reflects Dr. Skinner. “It brings me great joy to see the light come on when people understand how complex, yet simply logical, the human body can be.”

When not at Skinner Chiropractic

Dr. Skinner is married to his wife, Stephanie, and has two children, Cole and Jordan. His children have been under chiropractic care since they were a day old. Besides providing chiropractic care to the community and spending time with his family, Dr Skinner does admit to a slight addiction to the game of golf. ” Golf is such a challange to me because no matter how well you believe you can play, the next shot can, and usually does, completely humble you,” Dr. Skinner confesses.

I consider myself an excellent listener and hope I get the opportunity to meet you in person and discuss your specific health challenge. Give Skinner Chiropractic a call or email me with the link above and below.
