Meet The Doctors of Peterson Chiropractic
Dr. Bradley R. Peterson
Whatever Dr. Peterson does, he is firm, positive, and enthusiastic in his approach. Dr. Peterson grew up in Davis County, Utah, graduating from Davis High School in 1979. He was the recipient of the Barnes Award, being a four-sport letterman with a 3.60 GPA.
He attended Utah State University and the University of Utah, completing his pre-chiropractic education whereupon he was accepted to the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic in Whittier, California. Dr. Peterson graduated from LACC in 1985 and returned to the Salt Lake area where he has been practicing since.
Dr. Peterson has two wonderful children. His first, Blake, is an exercise physiology major at the U of U and will be finishing up his Chiropractic prerequisites before moving on to Chiropractic College. Needless to say, his father is so very proud and honored that his son will follow in his foot steps. His second, Anne-Marie, of course will always be his "little girl" and will always have that place in his heart. She is now in the nursing program at UVU and is looking forward to helping others too. Dr. Peterson is so proud that both of his children have chosen a path in healthcare that will be so rewarding for them both. Dr. Peterson's passions, besides his commitment to improving the health and well-being of his community, include golf, skiing, running, and biking along with other outdoor activities.
Dr. Peterson constantly strives to improve and update his knowledge in the field of chiropractic. He has completed extensive postgraduate study emphasizing the treatment and rehabilitation of whiplash injuries, headache, and neck and back pain. As a firm believer in the basic worth of every individual and the incredible healing power of the body, Dr. Peterson is a true doctor of the people.
Dr. Bruce Koelliker
Dr. Bruce Koelliker was born in the sunny state of California. At a very young age his family moved to las Vegas, Nevada, which he calls home. With his mother being a nurse, Dr. Koellliker developed a desire early on to help people and knew he wanted to pursue an education in healthcare. While in high school, he excelled in athletics and participated in student government.
After his high school graduation in 1982, he attended Brigham Young University before leaving on a mission for the LDS Church. While serving in Aukland, New Zealand, he developed a love for the South Pacific and its rich culture. Upon retuning from his mission, he had the opportunity to attend BYU-Hawaii on an athletic scholarship and return to the pacific--a chance he just couldn't pass up.
While attending college, Dr. Koelliker received numerous awards including Academic All-American, Outstanding College Students of America, and Most Valuable Player for basketball. During this time, he was fortunate to work closely with the medical director at BYU-Hawaii throughout the school year which only served to further his desire to go into healthcare. Returning to Las Vegas on summer breaks, he worked with some physical therapists there which increased his desire to help people with particular focus in sports rehabilitation. Following graduation from BYU, Dr K found he wasn't yet ready to leave the Hawaiian sun, so he stayed and taught high school, coaching both volleyball and basketball.
Finally, with his young family in tow, Dr. Koelliker moved to southern California to attend chiropractic college. After graduating from Los Angeles College of Chiropractic in 1995, they moved to Las Vegas where he has been practicing for the past 14 years. He recently moved to Salt Lake City and is excited to serve the people of the Salt Lake Valley.
Dr. Steven Chalk
When I was in high school I found that after a day of weight lifting I could no longer lift my right leg. Any attempt to move or lift it shot pain all the way down to my foot. I thought that the pain would pass and that it was no big deal, but the problem persisted and finally on the 3rd day I sought help. My mom took me to a local chiropractor who examined me and explained that my sciatic nerve, a nerve that runs from your hip down your leg, was being irritated. He gave me an adjustment and the pain immediately left and never returned. This sparked my interest in the chiropractic adjustment. Over the next few years as I met other chiropractors and each had a positive impact on my life, I decided that this was the profession for me.
I graduated from Brigham Young University with a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science, and then continued my education at Parker University in Dallas, Texas. At Parker I completed an additional Bachelor of Science degree in Health and Wellness as well as the Doctor of Chiropractic. I also did post-doctoral studies with the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA).
Helping people live happier and healthier through every phase of life is the driving force in my heart. From a newborn baby to someone matured with many years, I can’t wait to teach them about and deliver the chiropractic adjustment. I remember every day when I go to work that I have the chance to be a positive impact on someone’s life and health.
I have been happily married to April Palmer since February 2008, and we have two young, rambunctious sons Walker and Benson. I love spending time with my family, taking my wife on dates, and being active.
I served a two year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Torreon Mexico. During my service to the Lord and the Mexican people I learned Spanish and fell in love with the Mexican people.
