Braun Chiropractic Nutrition & Wellness Center in Gregory, SD is a locally owned and operated practice that has been serving the community since 1979
. Our center is run by two caring and talented chiropractic doctors, Dr. Marvin Braun and Dr. Ben Stukel. Collectively, these two have over 50 years of experience in their fields.
Dr. Marvin Braun was born and raised on a farm south of Gregory, SD. He attended eight years of rural school and then went on to graduate from Gregory High School in 1973. He began college, pursuing a degree in physical therapy but switched to pre-chiropractic after hearing a lecture about chiropractic in one of his physical therapy classes. Dr. Braun graduated from Northwestern College of Chiropractic
in St. Paul, MN in 1979 and has been in practice in Gregory, SD ever since.
Dr. Braun’s first experience with chiropractic was when a 1600 pound quarter horse he was riding spooked. In the ensuing ‘rodeo’ he was thrown and run over. Various football injuries also resulted in necessary and additional chiropractic care
Dr. Braun and his wife Julie (an English teacher in the Gregory School system) have three children and two grandchildren. He is the author of two children’s hunting books (Daniel’s First Deer Hunt
and Daniel and the Black-Horned Buck
). He and his brother Marlin, who is also a chiropractor, are currently writing a book entitled Lessons Learned on the Farm
. It is a collection of humorous stories about growing up on their farm that teaches important success principles
, learned from those experiences.
Dr. Ben Stukel is a native of Gregory, SD, growing up on a farm two miles east of town. He graduated from Gregory High School in 1996 before attending Black Hills State University, and majoring in Biology and Human Anatomy. In 2000, Dr. Stukel began his studies at Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, MN. After four years of chiropractic school, Dr. Stukel graduated in 2004 with his Doctorate Degree
