Chiropractor Nathan Lauenstein D.C.
Dr. Nathan Lauenstein started his career in health care by training as a combat medic in the summer of 1997. Dr. Nate's intention had always been a career in health care and through his army unit he was able to pursue a great many avenues. As a medic he helped to teach courses on advanced cardiac life support and pre-hospital trauma life support as well as CPR.
Through his Army unit he was offered the opportunity to further his education and through a civilian contract program received his Associates Degree in Laboratory Science. It was during this time that Dr. Nate had a conversation with a chiropractor that changed everything. It was explained to him that a chiropractor's goal is to treat the whole person and address the cause of dys-function and dis-ease to help restore function and ease to the body. Dr. Nate finished his 12 years of Army service and matriculated at Palmer College of Chiropractic in 2007.
After completing the D.C. program in 2010 Dr. Nate and his wife Stephanie moved to Australia to see what life on the other side of the planet was like. While in Australia Dr. Nate pursued Dr. James Chestnut's wellness practitioner program where he learned the principles of eating, moving and thinking well. Based on those principles he was able to lose 60 lbs and become the healthiest and strongest he had ever been. While working in Australia, Dr. Nate also began working part time as a CrossFit coach with CrossFit Albury Wodonga and knew that this was his calling.
He has a passion for helping people restore function to their body so they can use that body to pursue physical well being as well as a passion for teaching the principles of Eat Well, Move Well, Think Well in order to help everyone he can pursue of life of health, wellness, happiness, and longevity!

Chiropractor Bret Heiser D.C.
Dr. Bret was first introduced to Chiropractic in high school when he suffered a bulging disc and visited his local Chiropractor in his home town of Fort Scott Kansas. It didn’t take long for Dr. Bret to make a full recovery and return to competitive tennis and lifting weights and all drug free! In fact, it was the quickest and most pleasant response he experienced to any injury or illness before. After shadowing Chiropractors for the remainder of high school he was hooked.
Dr. Bret earned his Bachelors in Human Biology, his Doctorate in Chiropractic, and his certification in Physical Therapy and began practicing in Colorado in 2015 where he met his wife Colleen and the two moved to Nebraska in 2017 to be closer to family and set down roots (Go Big Red). In 2018 Dr. Bret earned his Integrative Dry Needling certification to provide further benefit to his patients and his community. Dr. Bret is now an avid CrossFitter and volunteers his time on weekends to treat athletes at local CrossFit Competitions.
