    Dr. Peter Young grew up in Harrison, New Jersey.  He attended Hastings College where he earned his Bachelor’s of Arts Degree in Psychology.  He suffered from football injuries in both high school and college and discovered that Chiropractic care was the only method that helped him.  He made the decision to attend Cleveland Chiropractic College in Kansas City where he earned his Doctorate of Chiropractic in 2007.  While there he was given the honor of receiving the Cleveland Chiropractic Clinical Excellence Award.  Dr. Young was also one of the few selected from his class to to work both at the Kansas City Veterans Hospital and Truman Medical Center, allowing him the opportunity to practice an integrated approach to patient care.   His personal and professional philosophy is to provide such a service that allows the body to heal itself as god intended and created our bodies to do.  He also feels it is of upmost importance to educate the community on proper health, to be proactive and allow people to take control of their own health through natural means.

    Dr. Young is an experienced Chiropractor who uses multiple techniques in treating his patients while finding the underlying cause of the injury or pain.  He focuses on both the spine as well as the muscles in obtaining optimal results.  Dr. Young is one of the few Practitioners in the Omaha metro that is certified in the Graston Technique, which is used to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation.

    In his free time Dr. Young enjoys lifting weights, watching movies and spending time with his wife, Karen and their four children; Collin, Kalynn, Alexa and Preston.
