“We’re thrilled to welcome Dr. Peterson to our wonderful team,” says Dr. Jim Schwietert.

Dr. Jillian Peterson is a graduate of Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, Minnesota where she received her Doctor of Chiropractic degree.

She is originally from Tea, a small community outside of Sioux Falls, SD. Dr. Peterson graduated from Lennox High School and then continued with her undergraduate education at the University of South Dakota in Vermillion where she received a business degree in Health Administration with a minor in Chemistry in May of 2009.

A Passion for Children’s Health

“My focus is on pediatric, prenatal, and postnatal chiropractic care along with care for adults and children with neurodevelopmental disabilities. I want to see every child have a healthy start to life and that’s why I’m here!”

Dr. Jillian is currently finishing her certification from the Academy of Chiropractic Family Practice and the Council on Chiropractic Pediatrics (C.A.C.C.P.) and is one of a few Doctors of Chiropractic in the Rapid City area certified in the Webster Technique. The Webster Technique is used as a safe way to restore proper pelvic balance and function in pregnant women and is an effective way to alleviate back pain during pregnancy. Dr. Jillian will also soon pursue a fellowship through the Carrick Institute of Graduate Studies in Childhood Developmental Disorders.

Getting to the Root of Your Pain

“My goal is to help find the underlying cause of your problem and to customize a treatment specific to you.” She always keeps her patient’s best interest in mind and designs treatment to their comfort level. She wants her patients to understand their health choices and to not make health decisions based on fear.

During treatment you will notice that Dr. Jillian not only treats symptoms but also works with you to get where you want your health and wellness to be! At times this includes the addition of nutritional counseling, exercise and stretches, and rehabilitation along with adjustments. Dr. Jillian believes greatly in integrative health care and if necessary she will work with others in the area to further treat or evaluate your specific issue.

A Heart for Community

Dr. Jillian is an active member in the American Chiropractic Association as well as the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, and the South Dakota Chiropractic Association. “I believe that staying active with these organizations and current with education is important to ensure that I deliver the best possible care to you.”

As a new resident to Rapid City, she is excited to become an active part of the community in order to make a positive difference in the lives of others. In her free time, Dr. Jillian enjoys spending time with family, friends and her dog Potter. She loves the outdoors and staying active so she is thankful to live and practice in Rapid City where hiking and exploring the Black Hills is so accessible.

“I’m so excited to join the team here at Schwietert Chiropractic Clinic and I can’t wait to meet you! Give me a call today so we can get started!”
