Meet Dr. Samuel Nelson

Dr Samuel Nelson, Winona Chiropractor

Chiropractic Journey

Dr. Samuel Nelson was born and raised in Southeastern Minnesota, where he was a multi-sport athlete in high school and played college football for Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa. Sports-related injuries and an auto accident exposed Dr. Nelson to the benefits of regular chiropractic care at a young age. The benefits and pain relief of this care in his own life motivated him to be a provider of such care for others. As he has grown into his profession he has become very passionate about patient care and has fallen in love with the art that is Chiropractic.

Certified Chiropractic Sports Practitioner

Dr. Nelson earned his Doctoral degree from Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, MN where he also received his Bachelor of Science in Human Biology. He has also completed the necessary coursework and exams to be a Certified Chiropractic Sports Practitioner, which allows him to treat the highest level of athletes. He traveled with team USA wrestling to Oslo Norway for the 2021 world championships as a part of the sports medicine staff.

Training and Continuing Education

Shortly after graduation, Sam had specific, specialized, advanced extremity adjusting training from world-renown chiropractor Dr. Daniel McClure. Dr. Nelson also uses an extremity muscle testing protocol formulated by Dr. Mark Charrette that is used by thousands of chiropractors. Dr. Nelson is continually furthering his education to provide the best techniques and most knowledgeable service to his patients. Since 2018 Dr. Nelson has been assisting Dr. McClure in teaching at continuing education seminars on Advanced Extremity Adjusting, showing other chiropractors how to utilize the technique and provide the ability to adjust all extremities.
