DR. LUKE WEBER, DC
Dr. Luke Weber DC is a proud product of the Mankato area. Born and raised in North Mankato, he enjoys being back home serving the community after being away for 12 years. After graduating from Mankato West High School he attended St. Cloud State University. While at SCSU he participated in the honors program, worked as a student representative in the admissions program, volunteered time as a teaching assistant in the science department, and was a captain of the Men's Swim and Dive team. He graduated from SCSU in the spring of 2013 with a bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Science. In the summer of 2013 he moved down to Davenport, IA to pursue his Doctorate in Chiropractic at Palmer College of Chiropractic. While attending Palmer College Dr. Luke spent his time getting involved in multiple programs. He was the president of the baseball club, a teaching assistant in the anatomy lab, a clinical radiology intern, and a clinical rehabilitation intern. In the summer of 2016 Dr. Luke worked as a chiropractic-intern in the Bigfork Valley Hospital within the Wellness Center before graduating in the fall of 2016.
Prior to owning Kinetic Spine and Sport, he spent 4 years working as an associate at two incredible MN clinics. In practice he mainly uses the techniques within the Palmer Package, but is also trained in the low force Thompson technique. Other treatment techniques include Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization/Graston/FAKTR which provides him with a variety of tools to create a treatment approach that works best for each individual patient.
Outside of the clinic Dr. Luke likes to volunteer with the MSU diving programs, attend athletic events, guest-speak at area schools and teams, participate in community events, and train at Kato Crossfit. He is a friendly face that is ecstatic to be back HOME serving the community that raised him.

Samantha was born and raised in Mankato, MN. She graduated from Mankato West in 2009, and shortly thereafter, moved to Tennessee to attend music school at Austin Peay State University, just outside of Nashville, TN. She acquired her Bachelor of Science degree in Vocal Performance in 2016, where she assumed many roles in operas, acapella groups, and traveling performance groups. She recently moved back to Mankato after a decade in the South and is so glad to be home among family and friends! Samantha plans to go back to school to get her master’s degree in Speech and Language Pathology, specializing in vocal rehabilitation for singers. In her free time she loves making jewelry for her Etsy shop, spending time outdoors, and singing in the car.
"When someone takes a fall and ends up with a misalignment of the lower spine, typically he or she will just ignore it after a few days, when the pain has gone away. Then the person finds out years later that the hip has been deteriorating more rapidly than it should have been."
