Rapid City Chiropractor | Dr. Jim Schwietert

I’m a 4th Generation Chiropractor Passionate About YOUR Health…

Rapid City Chiropractor, Dr. James Schwietert

Dr. Jim Schwietert

I grew up within a third generation chiropractic family, witnessing the power of the body healing itself. My father, Dr. John Schwietert, was very dedicated to chiropractic and especially to his family of patients.

I Craved a Career that Made a Difference!

One day I realized that there was something greater that God had planned for me. I was determined to find something that would be fulfilling, challenging and that would help others to attain their goals and aspirations. Finally, I enrolled in chiropractic college at Northwestern College of Chiropractic in St. Paul, MN where both my father and brother attended.

I started chiropractic college at Northwestern, met the most intriguing woman of my life, took a break from college to get engaged, and then we married the next year. My wife, Deb and I then moved to Lombard, Illinois where I resumed chiropractic college again at the National College of Chiropractic.

During this educational phase, I was amazed at the complexity of the human body and how God had made us so perfect and unique. I was so excited to help others attain the health that was within them, feel their best and just be happier. I believe we were designed to heal ourselves, and I’m here to help you do just that!

We’re a Chiropractic Family

I am married to a wonderful and motivated woman who shares my passion about chiropractic and education. I met Deb on a blind lunch-date through her brother (also a chiropractor) while we were both attending Northwestern together. Deb and I got engaged 2 months later then married 7 months later. We’ve now have been married over 35 years and have two wonderful children.

Jonathan is an Electrical Engineer with his master’s degree and lives in Denver. Melanie also lives in Denver and loves enjoying the beauty of the Rockies running alongside of her dog.

Many Passions, Many Blessings

Deb and I enjoy hiking, camping and boating in the Black Hills and surrounding area. I’m an avid pheasant hunter and our English Springer Spaniel, Skeet, is my favorite hunting partner.

We both love to cook! Deb is the master chef and I am the sou chef! We enjoy cooking for friends and family and having gatherings to celebrate health and happiness.

The Walk of Wellness

I receive weekly chiropractic care and treat my family on a regular schedule. We strive to eat naturally produced foods, less refined foods and choose to cook our meals frequently throughout the week. We take nutritional supplements on a daily basis as these are required by our bodies to attain maximum performance and health.

My wife is an avid walker and diligently tries to take me along on her ventures. I was personally raised without any vaccinations or antibiotics and Deb and I raised our children without these drugs and treated them with chiropractic care and nutrition on a regular basis. Together they have discovered a wide array of healthier alternatives to traditional drugs and medications that have become a part of their health regime.

My team and I are here to listen to your concerns, answer questions and help you in any way possible! We look forward to meeting you and seeing how we may help.

Give us a call today, and let us show you how to balance your life through wellness!
