Carl R. Peterson D.C.
Carl was born and raised in Westby, WI, where he graduated from Westby High School in 1984. Carl went on to Western Technical College where he earned his degree in x-ray radiology. He worked for several years at Barge & Barge Chiropractic as an x-ray technologist, and it was there that he became interested in chiropractic and ultimately decided to go to Palmer College of Chiropractic.
After his graduation in 1994, Carl went back to La Crosse and worked for 12 years as a chiropractor. In 2006, he started work with MaryPat at Coon Valley Chiropractic. Since then, Carl has enjoyed caring for patients in their practice.
Carl uses the Palmer Package of adjustment techniques which is made up of 5 adjustment procedures taught at the chiropractic college. Carl calls on these adjustment tools for the patient requesting maintenance care or for the patient who comes in with severe pain. He manages patients from infants to the elderly. Carl also adjusts the extremities including all joints in the arms and legs.
Carl loves using both whole food supplementation as well as herbs to help speed healing. He has been using Standard Process supplements for many years and has enjoyed seeing the benefits of nutrition in the overall health of his patients.
In October 2015, Carl opened La Farge Chiropractic & Nutrition in La Farge, WI. The office is located in the old La Farge medical clinic. Carl is providing both chiropractic care as well as Nutritional Counseling in the new La Farge office as well as in the Coon Valley clinic.
