Wouldn't have been able to run a half marathon, because of a hip injury, without Nate. Couldn't even run a mile without stopping in July, he created a plan which included exercises, adjustments and dry needling, three months later I finished a half marathon.
So glad I decided to stop living with the nagging hip pain

Patient Testimonials

Wowowow Nate is 10/10. I’ve never had a service that is so informative. He really takes the time to hear what you’re needing and then explains why and how he’s doing what he’s doing. Also very helpful on things to do on your own to maintain progress! And such a variety of treatment options! Big fan! Can’t recommend enough!

-Missy T., Rochester, MN

My daughter and I have been going to Dr. Nate Skare for a few months. He really helped me to get back to 100% after suffering from knee pain that made it hard to even walk or climb stairs. I am now pain and limitation free.
My 12 year old has Osgood-Schlatter disease and we were told there is nothing to help other than PT (which we tried), pain relievers (which we tried), and rest (which is heartbreaking for an athlete). His work with her has not only alleviated her pain but helped her to improve as an athlete and stay in the game.
He is the best at what he does, is easy to work with, and reasonably priced. I HIGHLY recommend!

-Tiffinee S., Rochester, MN

Our Why

During his high school athletic career, Nate encountered a unique and frustrating injury that eventually led to a Mayo Clinic case study and was later featured in a Rochester Post-Bulletin article. This experience ignited his passion for recovery and optimizing performance through strength and conditioning, nutrition, sleep, and any aspects that can help increase performance on the field.

After his athletic career was over, his pursuit of enhancing his own performance turned to helping others do the same. In chiropractic school, this pursuit led him to explore various manual therapy methods, including Motion Palpation, Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization, soft-tissue techniques, and dry needling. These techniques became the cornerstone of his belief in optimizing the human body's potential and improving athletic performance while also addressing the needs of anyone experiencing pain. 

He brings this dedication to Skare Spine & Performance, where he aims to empower individuals to overcome pain, achieve optimal performance, and take control of their well-being.
