Dr. Zach Holst is a DeWitt, Iowa native and graduated from Central DeWitt in 2004. After graduating, he enrolled in the pre-chiropractic program at Scott Community College and later graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa in 2011. One of the highlights of his education was the opportunity to participate in a 2 week mission trip to provide humanitarian chiropractic care to the people of Fiji. This trip allowed he and his group to provide chiropractic care to thousands of children and adults.
Since graduating from Palmer College of Chiropractic, Dr. Holst has been a full-time practicing associate chiropractor for 6 years. This has allowed him to work alongside other chiropractors, doctors and specialists and immerse himself in different specialties to continue to learn different styles and techniques to best serve his patients.
Dr. Holst's desire to enter the chiropractic field started at a very young age. When he was in grade school, he began suffering from chest and rib pain. He believes these pains were associated with his athletic activities, but after a consultation with his family physician he was informed that what he was experiencing were growing pains. The discomfort failed to alleviate itself and therefore, his parents made the decision to take him to a chiropractor. The positive results that he received after one visit opened up Dr. Holst's eyes to this new world of healing. It was after that one life-changing experience that Dr. Holst knew he wanted to pursue a career as a chiropractor and provide similar relief to others who were suffering.
Outside of the office, Dr. Holst enjoys spending time with his wife Brittany, and his two children, Kellan (8) and Remi (5). He loves getting together with family and friends and revels in rooting for the Iowa Hawkeyes and Chicago Blackhawks.
Dr. Holst is grateful and elated to relocate back home with his family and raise them in the great community of DeWitt.
