Dr. Nick Rodsater
Dr. Nick grew up in a small town in central Illinois. He developed his passion for health and performance at a very young age through his love of sports. He got his first exposure to chiropractic following a sports injury. That first experience with chiropractic changed his life in a way that he never expected. His chiropractic care allowed him to get back on the field and perform at a level higher than before. As he continued chiropractic care, he began to notice other changes in his health as well, and then that is when he knew there was more to chiropractic than fixing back pain and sports injuries! At that very moment, he knew his purpose was to change people’s lives through chiropractic, and every step he made from that point forward lead him to becoming the chiropractor and healer that he is today. Before he attended and graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic, Dr. Nick pursued his athletic dreams by attending Western Illinois University and playing basketball. While at Western Illinois he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in the field of exercise science. Once Dr. Nick moved on to Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa, he met the ultimate love of his life, Dr. Stefanie Gross Rodsater. During their time together at Palmer, they attended many educational seminars to enhance their chiropractic knowledge and philosophy on true health and wellness. Upon graduation, Dr. Nick moved to the Lake Norman community with Dr. Stefanie. They opened Adjusting the World Chiropractic with the deep purpose of educating and empowering the community to take their health into their own hands through a drug free natural chiropractic lifestyle. Over the last seven years Dr. Nick’s passion to change the lives of the families in our community has grown and expanded along with Adjusting the World Chiropractic practice. This growth has allowed Dr. Nick and Dr. Stefanie to have an even bigger impact in the Lake Norman community. Dr. Nick stays very active in the community through his involvement in the Chamber of Commerce, adult sports leagues, and sponsorship of many local community events. Dr. Nick is excited to continue to influence people in our community to reach their highest potential for health and happiness.
