Dr. Luke was born and raised in North Mankato where his family still lives today. After graduating from Mankato West High School he attended St. Cloud State University. While at SCSU he participated in the honors program, worked as a student representative in the admissions program, volunteered time as a teaching assistant in the science department, and was a captain of the Men's Swim and Dive team. He graduated from SCSU in the spring of 2013 with a bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Science. In the summer of 2013 he moved down to Davenport, IA to pursue his Doctorate in Chiropractic at Palmer College of Chiropractic. While attending Palmer College Dr. Luke spent his time getting involved in multiple programs. He was the president of the baseball club, a teaching assistant in the anatomy lab, a clinical radiology intern, and a clinical rehabilitation intern. In the summer of 2016 Dr. Luke worked as a chiropractic-intern in the Bigfork Valley Hospital within the Wellness Center before graduating in the fall of 2016.
In practice he mainly uses the techniques within the Palmer Package, but is also trained in the low force Thompson technique. Other treatment techniques include Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization/Graston which provides him with a variety of tools to create a treatment plan that works best for each individual patient.
Outside of the clinic Dr. Luke likes to volunteer with the BHS boys swim/dive team, attend other athletic events, guest-speak at area schools, participate in community events, and spend time on the lake with family and friends. He is a friendly face that is excited to use his passion for chiropractic and health to give back to the Baxter/Brainerd community.
