Meet Dr Brian Peterson (Chiropractor & Wellness Expert)

Dr Brian Peterson of Cactus Chiropractic in Logan

Dr. Brian Peterson and his family

Superheroes had always fascinated me as a kid. I loved it when my grandma would clip a towel around my neck, and I would pretend to fly around her house, rescuing people from some evil empire or madman.

Growing up in Arizona, my heroes became firemen, policemen or guys in the Secret Service or the Army. I loved stories of some brave soldier risking his own life to save those of other guys in his platoon.

I actually got to live out my dream when I graduated secondary school and joined the Air Force, where I became a firefighter. The firefighters’ motto goes, “fighting fires and saving lives!” and I loved it. Although the only fires I ever fought were brush fires, and I never got to drag anyone out of a burning building. I absolutely loved being a fireman. I truly enjoyed being in the position of helping people when they got into trouble.

I began to realize that what I was really doing as a firefighter was helping people after it was too late. The car crashes, the heart attacks, the rescues were like waiting for someone to fall from the cliff and then attempt to save their life. What I really wanted to do was get to the top of the cliff and stop the people from falling off in the first place. I wanted to be Superman again — to have the ability to fly to the scene of the crime just in time to save the child or town from imminent death. I suppose I never really grew up.

Finding a Calling in Chiropractic and Wellness

I began to form a philosophy about health, that the body is amazing. The self-healing and self-regulating properties of the human body, anything that has life really, is amazing. The chiropractic lifestyle not only reduces the stress on the body, it increases the body’s ability to adapt to stress. This is what attracted me to chiropractic.

I studied chiropractic back home in the United States, graduating from University of Western States. My favourite part of my time in chiropractic school was the study of anatomy and physiology. I immersed myself in studying how the body works, how everything works together. I love the philosophy of caring for the body from the inside out, instead of treating outward symptoms.

I am a Primal Blueprint Certified Expert and am able to assist you with caring for and healing your body using ancestral principles of nutrition, movement, sleep and thought patterns.

The Chiropractic Lifestyle

The chiropractic lifestyle gives me a map for where I need to go with regards to my health. Learning how to improve your ability to adapt to stress by getting back to nature. Learning how to eat, move and think as humans should.

My family and I live busy, active lives. We enjoy playing sports together – my daughter and I particularly enjoy basketball. My wife and I participate in obstacle course events, and we try to encourage our friends and community to join in the fun!

I invite all my patients to join me for my Tough Cactus Boot Camp each week. It’s free, and it will get you moving!

I’d love to have you join me in living the chiropractic lifestyle. Call (07) 3808 8040 to learn more and to find out how you can get started.
