Passion and Commitment: Dr. Peter Rehl became interested in chiropractic in the year 2000 when he had a low-grade fever for eight months and low back pain. The MDs could not find a solution to the issue. It was a chiropractor who, through chiropractic adjustments, soft tissue work, lab work, and nutrition helped him recover. His chiropractor helped him realize he needed to stop eating grains grown in the U.S. with gluten while also understanding our bodies need a special kind of care to be at optimum health to balance the nervous system, with a focus on the spine: chiropractic! A year later, Dr. Rehl also received a sports injury to his leg, and his chiropractor provided care that allowed him to recover well from the injury. As a result of receiving excellent care from a chiropractor, Dr. Rehl committed himself towards a life-long endeavor to give back to those in his communities with passion the kind of chiropractic care that changed his life around for the better. Dr. Rehl engages his patients with candor, enthusiasm, warmth, and a high level of care. Dr. Rehl believes it is with a combined approach of chiropractic adjusting, soft tissue work, and nutritional changes that the best health can be attained.

Orthotics: Custom orthotics are provided using Sole Supports. These are superior orthotics in design and materials that allow for the best mechanics and support to occur in the feet, allowing better comfort, gait, balance, muscle strength, etc. Dr. Rehl looks to free the feet of their binding adhesions and adjust the bones of the feet as necessary to restore proper biomechanics to feet, thus also affecting the biomechanics of the body to a certain degree. After it is determined the joints of the feet are moving as best they can then the custom orthotics are created. It is in the best interest of the patients, Dr. Rehl believes, to have a properly functioning foot fitted to orthotics as opposed to having the feet measured to an orthotic in their current state, where the feet may have adhesions causing restrictions in their movement and where bones are out of position.
