Dr. Raeann Zschokke

Dr. Raeann Zschokke’s path to chiropractic started when her life went off a cliff – literally! At age 20, her car crashed through a guardrail and went off a cliff flipping four times. As a patient, she is a walking, talking, chiropractic success story.

As a doctor, she is committed to serving as many people as possible and share in her experience. Dr. Zschokke is advance certified in the Torque Release Technique. TRT is a non-linear, non-mechanistic, neurological method of testing and adjusting. A low-force high velocity instrument called the Integrator is used to remove subluxations that cause nerve interference and restore the body’s function at its highest potential. TRT is the most up-to-date technique available designed as part of scientific research into the health benefits of chiropractic. As such, it is a mixture of the “best-of-the-best” systems of chiropractic assessment and treatment.

Dr. Zschokke’s mission is to give hope to the hopeless, health to the sick and maximum potential to the already healthy.
