Meet Dr. Scott Nigbor

“I had this miracle moment.”

Although Dr. Scott grew up going to a chiropractor, it was a specific experience that opened his eyes to it as a possibility for a career. He went to see his chiropractor without even mentioning that he had swimmer’s ear. When his doctor realized he had an ear infection, Dr. Scott’s response was,”Yeah, so?”

His chiropractor wanted to help Dr. Scott with this infection and adjusted his neck and upper cervical area. Dr. Scott felt the water immediately drain right out of his ear. “My ear infection went away, right then and there.” That experience felt like a “miracle” moment to Dr. Scott, and he immediately knew he wanted to pursue a chiropractic career.

Becoming a Chiropractor

Growing up in Richfield, WI, Dr. Scott enjoyed science and thrived when learning about the nervous system. He attended the University of Minnesota, interning with the medical staff of the Minnesota Gopher Football team. There he was able to work with world-class athletes in their rehabilitation and prevention of injuries before graduating with a degree in kinesiology.

Dr. Scott then went to Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. While attending school there, he was a teacher’s assistant in anatomy labs, radiology, diagnosis and physiotherapy. He graduated cum laude, ready to become a Sun Prairie chiropractor.

In the summer of 2014, Dr. Scott participated in a clinic abroad trip to Fiji where he provided chiropractic and health care to children and those in the community. It was there that Dr. Scott realized how much he enjoyed working with children.

“I loved seeing their smiling faces after treatment. It brought me so much joy knowing that I was improving the lives of young children so they could develop and have a healthier life!”

Now, Dr. Scott looks forward to helping build a healthy community through family wellness.

Embracing a Life of Wellness

Outside of the office, Dr. Scott enjoys spending as much time as he can in the outdoors. Whether he’s hiking, playing basketball, football, golf or water skiing, he enjoys being active with his friends. He appreciates how the Sun Prairie community supports natural health care and enjoys staying close to his family.
