Dr Nate Stegehuis
DC - CSP - MMACS - PES - FAKTR
Dr Nate has been helping patients of Apex Performance Chiropractic as the Director of Rehabilitation and Performance since 2021. Growing up in the suburbs of Detroit Michigan he knew he wanted to be a health care provider to help people live thier lives to the fullest. Like many of his patients, Dr Nate has a history of back pain. His case includes a severe lower back herniation sustained from service in the United States Army. This injury would manifest into burning leg pain that hampered his ability to walk and would not be relieved by pain medication. Fast forward a few months during his rehabilitation and he was introduced to the world of chiropractic and physical therapy. The combination of treatments helped give Dr Nate his mobility back and inspired him down his path to helping others.
After graduating from Central Michigan University he chose to pursue his doctorate of Chiropractic from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Port Orange Florida. Licensed since 2019, Dr. Nate has had the opportunity to work with a wide variety of professional athletes and teams during his tenure at Apex Performance Chiropractic. He believes in the quality of well rounded and evidence based approaches to give his patients lesser aches and pains, increased athletic performance, and overall better quality of life. “If it worked for me it can work for almost anybody.
In his spare time Dr. Nate enjoys weight lifting, jiu jitsu, kickboxing, kayaking, learning new languages and spending time with his family, friends, and his dog Lana.
