Graduating Magna Cum Laude from Palmer College of Chiropractic - West, Dr. Brix has been passionate about learning, growing, and helping patients through Chiropractic since day one. Once into practice, Dr. Brix became very active in his community developing wellness programs for families, special needs patients, and elite athletes.
