Nate grew up in Spring Valley, MN, and was a Chatfield High School graduate in 2014. After high school, he attended Upper Iowa University, where he punted for the Peacock football team for four years and was a relief pitcher on the baseball team for two years.
His passion for helping people led him to pursue chiropractic care at Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, MN. He received excellent training and mentorship through the Motion Palpation Institute.
During his internships, Nate had the opportunity to work with highly respected chiropractors, including Dr. Tim Fargo, who served as the Minnesota Vikings team chiropractor for 15 years. He also cared for athletes of the Minnesota Vixen, a women's professional football team, during his internship at the Human Performance Center.
Nate then spent two semesters at Winchester Spine and Sport, a highly integrative clinic in St. Louis, MO, where he worked with various populations and cases. Under the guidance of Dr. Brett Winchester, a renowned teacher, and the former St. Louis Cardinals team chiropractor, Nate gained invaluable experience and knowledge.
Throughout his studies, Nate completed over 500 hours of continuing education seminars to provide his patients with the highest standard of care. He received training in various techniques, including Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization, McKenzie Methods, Neurodynamic Solutions, Dry Needling, Rock Blades, and Active Release Technique. He is excited to serve the Rochester community and help active individuals return to their daily activities and hobbies.
In his free time, Nate enjoys spending time with his family at their cabin on Little Pine Lake, watching the Minnesota Twins and Vikings, and spending time with his fiancé, Brook.
"Dr. Skare provides top notch care. He has extensive training in several disciplines and is sure to tailor treatment specifically to your needs and goals. I was dealing with burning pain and tingling down my neck and shoulder blade. Dr. Skare explained what was going on, cared for me in office, and gave me take home exercises to help with long term pain relief. Thank you Dr. Skare for getting me out of constant pain!"
