Chiropractor Glencoe MN Dr Kurt Kramer

Kurt Kramer, STM, DC

    Master in Sacred Theology
    Doctor of Chiropractic

Greetings, and thank you for visiting our website!

Goals
My ultimate mission as a Doctor is to deliver exceptional health care to patients of all ages, helping them restore their overall health and balance through natural health care.

The experience I have in health care to date has allowed me to successfully treat many chronic and debilitating health conditions, becoming more and more specialized in complex Neuro-Musculo-Skeletal issues. This has been instrumental in assisting patients to regain control of their ailments and live the healthy lives that they deserve.

Take a peek at our testimonials page to see what some of our current patients are saying about us! Maybe you know someone who is already a patient at Glencoe Family Chiropractic!


Family

My wife Marion and I got married in the Fall of 1999, and we now have eight beautiful children: Terez, Philip, Samuel, Thomas, Tobias, Odelia, Magdalena, and Johannes. We are enjoying the community in McLeod County, Minnesota!

My Past

I completed my undergraduate work at Franciscan University of Steubenville in Ohio in 1993. After graduation, I worked in pastoral ministry and taught junior high in rural North Dakota and at an inner-city school in St. Paul, Minnesota. I worked for a few years in commercial property management as well.


Education

After completing my Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Arts, I continued to seek additional knowledge and world experience with graduate studies in Austria, Europe. In the process of completing my STM Degree (Master’s in Moral Theology), I met my wonderful wife-to-be, Marion! I continued the trek of education by pursuing a second Master’s degree in Medical Ethics in the Principality of Lichtenstein, situated high in the Alps.

In 2006, only by the Grace of God and my wife’s unwavering assistance, I set out to fulfill my life dream of becoming a Chiropractor. First I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Biology, and then my Doctorate of Chiropractic in 2010 from Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, MN.

Even as an intern before graduation, I began working directly with multiple practicing doctors in delivering exceptional quality health care to patients of all ages. My clinical experiences have allowed me to continually and successfully treat many chronic and debilitating health conditions, becoming specialized in complex Neuro-Musculo-Skeletal issues.

Once again, thanks for checking us out online, and I look forward to meeting you in person!

She graduated from St. Catherine University in 2000 with a Bachelor of Arts in Biology with concentrations in pre-medicine and pre-pharmacy. While working for a research and development company, Dr. Catherine was not exposed to Chiropractic until 2002, when she began receiving chiropractic treatments for neck, back, and lower back pain symptoms. Her life-changing experience of receiving Chiropractic treatment as a patient-led her to pursue the Chiropractic profession at Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, MN in the Fall of 2005.

What I like best about the clinic
I enjoy seeing the colossal improvements in our patients’ health, beginning at Day 1.

It’s so rewarding to see our work as a team pay off and change so many lives for the best! We treat patients ranging from one week old to retirement age…and I can’t think of a single patient case over the past few years that, with full commitment, hasn’t had positive changes. From “My 8 month-old son has finally started sleeping through the night” to “I’m actually able to play with my grandkids again”, the success stories just keep coming in and keep getting better!


Hobbies

I’m a “puddle jumper”! I love traveling, especially to and within Europe, and experiencing the richness of different cultures.


About Me

I have been part of the team since 2014, and have been a Chiro-kid my whole life. You will mostly see me during the summer and winter holidays, as I am also currently in school for my Bachelor’s Degree in Classical Liberal Arts.
