Dr. Kenneth P. Nutter

Dr. Nutter is a graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic in Florida.  While there, he gained experience with the Palmer Package of adjusting, and obtained extra training in Thompson technique for low force adjustment.  He also co-founded a Clinical Nutrition club, with a purpose of helping to further integrate nutrition into practice.
