Dr. Timothy Peterson

Peterson When he was born it was a very difficult delivery. His spine was injured in the delivery process. As a result he suffered from severe headaches and digestive problems as a young child. "The headaches were so severe I was having trouble concentrating in school, and often the headaches would put me in bed." His parents heard of a Grostic Upper Cervical Chiropractor in Marshfield, Dr. Meninga. His parents drove him to Marshfield for adjustments, and the results were dramatic and immediate. "I knew at that age, 7 years old, that I wanted to help people in the same special way that I was helped. I decided to become a Chiropractor that day."

His family then moved to Bloomer when he was 15 years old. He attended high school in Bloomer, and was very active in student council, band and forensics. In his senior year, he was elected as band president, and he also was presented with the "Outstanding Teenager Award". He competed in Madison at State Forensics for two consecutive years.
