Meet Matthew Schwieterman D.C.
Dr. Matthew Schwieterman grew up in Leo, Indiana where he attended Leo Jr. Sr. High School. He competed in track and field as a sprinter and jumper, and unfortunately was injured his sophomore year during a meet.
His injuries lead him to seek the care of a chiropractic physician, which instantly sparked his curiosity in the chiropractic field. He continued to compete in track and field into his senior year.
He went on to represent his school with the 4 x 100 m team, at the Indiana State Track and Field Meet, thanks to the help of conservative chiropractic care.
Following high school, Matthew attended Purdue University, West Lafayette. He found a passion in studying anatomy and physiology and even spent time teaching these courses as a teacher’s assistant. He received his Bachelor of Science in Pre-Medical/Pre-Chiropractic Health Studies along with a Minor in Business Management, in December of 2016. Following graduation, Matthew and his wife Rachel were married and moved to St. Louis, Missouri to pursue his career in Chiropractic.
Matthew attended Logan University College of Chiropractic and during his time in St. Louis, he spent countless hours acquiring continued education in manual manipulation through Motion Palpation Institute courses and doctors.

Matthew is passionate about treating the community as a whole. He finds joy working on patients of all ages, and is extremely skilled in working with runners and individuals with lower extremity issues such as hip, knee, and foot complaints.
