DR. CHAD PETERS

Team Chiropractor for Texas A&M Corpus Christi Islanders

Dr. Chad Peters DC, CSCS is one of the co-owners of Armadillo Sport Chiropractic. He and Dr. Viersen set the Corpus Christi office up 10+ years ago in order to bring the treatments the professionals at the major sports are getting to the general population. He, like his wife, was also a college athlete, where he played middle linebacker for the South Dakota State Jackrabbits.Dr. Peters grew up in Huron, South Dakota. He was a four sport athlete in high school competing in football, wrestling, track and baseball. He enjoys traveling the world and seeking new adventures, something that has changed with the addition of his children, but has changed in that the whole family is a part of it now. "oh yeah, we all travel. My son was in 16 states before he was 2 years old."Dr. Peters is active in triathlon events, running, weightlifting and performance type training. He works out nearly every day and pushes an active lifestyle. You may have seen him as the awards announcer at Beach to Bay. His love for sports is what led him down a path in this field, although chiropractic is his profession, one of his main passions in is human performance. This has led him to recently get a CSCS certification from the National Strength Coaches Association. The extra knowledge and skills he obtains from these seminars and the nonstop reading he does in the field, he directly implements into his office. You often hear him say, “pain is easy to fix, just don't do anything. You came to this office to get better at what you're doing without hurting, that's we plan to do.”
