Dr. Brittany Schmidt understands that health is complex and multi-faceted. She believes reaching and maintaining good health is an individualized process—that what may be right for one person could look completely different for someone else. Dr. Schmidt yearns to empower people to find what their own path to health and wellness looks like. She spends time with patients to truly understand their concerns in order to help find the best treatment plan for their biopsychosocial needs. She believes that most people can benefit from chiropractic care and that every patient deserves an individualized approach and treatment plan. Dr. Schmidt specializes in diversified, drop table, and activator methods of adjusting and her special interests include nutrition and functional medicine, and women’s health issues especially endometriosis and PMS.
Dr. Schmidt’s expertise in clinical nutrition is similar to what some may call functional medicine. Dr. Schmidt also has continuing education training in functional lab testing. Dr. Schmidt uses this knowledge alongside her chiropractic care, to help with symptoms like fatigue, hormonal imbalances, digestive issues, weight gain, and more. Her functional lab testing is comprehensive and often very telling and empowering for the patient. Hormonal testing, adrenal stress testing, food sensitivity testing, heavy metal testing, and more is also available.
Dr. Schmidt lived in Miami, Florida until high school when her family moved to rural Western North Carolina. She attended Western Carolina University where she earned her B.S. in Emergency Medical Care. After college she worked as an EMT-Paramedic in Orange County, North Carolina before moving to Minnesota for Chiropractic school. She graduated from Northwestern Health Sciences University with her Doctorate in Chiropractic and her Masters in Applied Clinical Nutrition, for which she was class valedictorian. She continues to keep up to date on the latest research on a variety of health conditions.
Dr. Schmidt enjoys spending time with her husband, Casey and their two dogs, Palmer and Ruby. In her spare time she loves to write, play guitar, practice yoga, and spend time in nature.

“I came here on a whim, after finding Dr. Schmidt on Instagram and familiarizing myself with all the available services. I’ve been a regular patient for five months, and I look forward to every appointment. This has been life-changing. If you want a holistic approach to your health (think nutrition and chiropractic, less old dude cracking your bones in half), this is the place for you. I feel empowered and knowledgeable, and with Dr. Schmidt’s passion for women’s health, I’m encouraged to ask questions that can be uncomfortable. Could not recommend more!” -Larina A.
