We are excited to announce Dr. Claire Reinecke is the latest member on the team of chiropractors at Reinecke Chiropractic Clinic.

Dr. Claire is a Sioux Falls native. She grew up playing basketball in the gyms of the YMCA and learned how to snow ski at Great Bear. She is a South Dakota girl at heart, who enjoys her summers at the lake and spends her winters baking lots of cookies.

On her journey to becoming a chiropractor, Dr. Claire attended the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. She went to Utah, to study psychology with longtime dreams of becoming a counselor. After only a semester she realized that she needed to take a different approach to help people as she felt called to do.

Since she was a little girl, Dr. Claire has always had a passion for helping people. Though she grew up as a chiropractor’s kid, grateful for the care she received from her dad, she never thought of being a chiropractor herself. In the midst of her own journey to wellness; overcoming Crohn’s disease and depression, she saw firsthand the connection between mental/emotional wellness and the affect of chiropractic care on the nervous system.

She sums up the revelation she had, “There is no formula or shortcut to dealing with mental and emotional problems; trauma, nutritional imbalance, and biological makeup are all contributing factors. When I stepped back and thought about physical and mental wellbeing I recognized that these two areas of wellness always have one thing in common— they are both connected to brain function.”

Thankful to have made the connection early on in her education, Dr. Claire saw that as a chiropractor she would have the ability to address physical, mental and emotional problems by directly effecting the brain with adjustments that impact the entire nervous system. At this point she knew she had to put her nose to the grind stone and go to chiropractic school.

In 2019 Dr. Claire graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic. At Palmer she focused on upper cervical care, while studying under Dr. Todd Hubbard in the Palmer Academic Clinic. She learned various methods of technique including Thompson, SOT, Diversified and Palmer Package. Training under her father Dr. Max Reinecke she has acquired many “Dr. Max” methods of adjusting and has incorprated the use of Applied Kinesiology to find and address subluxations.

Dr. Claire loves to worship her Lord and savior Jesus Christ, socialize with friends and family and spend free time in the kitchen concocting wholesome meals. When opportunity arises, she loves to go on any adventure; traveling to new places, hiking, and camping. Dr. Claire is passionate about chiropractic and healing but the most important thing to her is her relationship with the Lord. Her purpose is to help others receive the love and healing that He freely gives. Dr. Claire strives to help her patients achieve optimal strength and function through specific chiropractic adjustments—allowing the body to heal it self.

Dr. Claire is excited to help you receive the abundance of health and life that awaits. She looks forward to meeting you and your family.
