Chiropractic Family Tradition
Broderick Schmidt opened Legacy Chiropractic and Wellness in December after earning degrees from the University of Minnesota-Crookston and Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, Minn.
The 26-year-old took over the practice of David Kreps, leasing the retired chiropractor’s clinic at 1675 Center Ave. W. in front of the AXIS Clinicals building.
Even before he knew what he wanted to do, Schmidt was familiar with the benefits of the manipulation of bones to treat sports injuries and aches.
His father, Bradley Schmidt, was a chiropractor, continuing the family legacy that had been carried out previously by his father, Robert Schmidt, as well as three generations before that beginning with Derk Tieszen Sr. in 1874—decades before D.D. Palmer founded this field of alternative medicine in 1895.
