 Mike Zauhar

Mike was born and raised in the Brainerd Lakes Area. He graduated from Brainerd High School in 2002 and from St. Johns University in 2006 with a Bachelors degree in Natural Science/Biology.  From there, he went to Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, MN where he received his Doctorate in Chiropractic in 2010. Mike spent a year practicing in Big Lake, MN before moving back to the Brainerd Lakes Area and joining Lakes Chiropractic in September 2011.

 Zauhar enjoys all athletics, especially Football, Basketball, and Baseball. He was a 3 sport athlete at BHS and played Baseball and Football at SJU. He suffered numerous sports injuries throughout his playing career and that is the reason Mike chose to go into Chiropractic care. He quickly realized that if his body wasn’t in correct alignment, it caused interference with his Nerves (reaction time), Muscles (quickness/speed/strength), and Biomechanics (joint mobility). Mike emphasizes Chiropractic care as being the mode to optimal health and athletic performance.

In Mike’s free time, he is a volunteer coach for the Brainerd High Football and Basketball team, a member of the Brainerd Sport Boosters, and a devoted member of his church. He also likes to hunt, fish, workout, play basketball, and spend time with friends/family.

Mike Zauhar and his wife Jamie reside in Baxter with their dog Jax. Jamie is a special education teacher in Pillager. Jamie and  Mike enjoy being outdoors, camping, watching movies, and playing with their beloved dog Jax

I'm back! Many of you will remember me from my previous employment at Lakes Chiropractic. It is great to be back here at the clinic renewing acquaintances and meeting new patients. I value the care that I personally receive here at Lakes Chiropractic. I grew up on a small farm in northeastern North Dakota. My educational background includes studies in child development and family relations and world religions. I enjoy a variety of crafting hobbies, cooking and sports (especially Minnesota Twins and Vikings!) I am excited to be a part of the caring team here at Lakes Chiropractic. Skoal! to your good health!
