Discovering the Natural Path to Health

Dr. Nick Knaup, ChiropractorWhen Dr. Knaup was growing up, he spent his summers cutting grass, landscaping and doing other manual labor. After his graduation from college, the repetitive stress finally caught up with him in the form of low back pain.

I’d heard of chiropractic, but I’d never been to a chiropractor before. It amazed me that in such a small amount of time, I was fixed up, feeling better and able to do the things I wanted to do.”

He’d long been interested in math, science and rational thinking. When the chiropractor explained the idea of proper movement and biomechanics to the spine, Dr. Knaup realized it was a sensible way to treat musculoskeletal problems in the body without drugs or surgery.

The experience Dr. Knaup had opened his eyes and led him to choose the chiropractic profession.


Learning to Help Others

He attended Logan College of Chiropractic, where he earned a Doctor of Chiropractic and graduated with honors. There, he trained in using several different techniques to treat the entire body, including extremity adjusting and soft tissue techniques. “I like to use a combination of methods to help with any sort of problem, from head to toe.”

Dr. Knaup has had extra training in myofascial techniques and uses Kinesiology tape as well. “I truly enjoy what I do. I like helping people in a natural way instead of having to go through taking medications, getting surgery or having injections.” A family chiropractor, Dr. Knaup also sees athletes and active people who want to take a proactive approach to their health.

Outside of the Office

Born and raised in Jefferson City, Dr. Knaup was excited to return to his hometown and join Health Quest Physicians Group. He appreciates staying close to home and helping the people in our community. In his spare time, he is a sports fanatic. Football is always #1, and he follows all St. Louis teams.
