The 1st Place Chiropractic Team
Dr. Kyrie Kleinfelter
“Dr. Kyrie was a teacher when she fell seriously ill with “Chronic Fatigue Syndrome” in her early twenties. She was unable to work or even participate in the everyday activities of life. Suffering from constant bodily pain and weakness, memory loss, inability to concentrate, and severe lack of energy she sought care from several medical doctors. She was told she might always be like that. It wasn’t until she started NUCCA care that she got her life back. It was then that Dr. Kleinfelter decided to dedicate her life to helping others with NUCCA Chiropractic.
Dr. Kyrie Kleinfelter graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA in 2001.
Dr. Kleinfelter is the sixth chiropractor in three generations in her family. Kyrie’s grandmother became a chiropractor after the birth of her first child (Kyrie’s father). He had seizures that were medically untreatable and it was predicted that he would die. She took him to a chiropractor who adjusted his spine and he never had a seizure again. In addition to Kyrie’s grandmother, her great aunt, great uncle, cousin, and uncle became chiropractors as well.
Kyrie studied with other NUCCA doctors before opening 1st Place Chiropractic in early 2002.
Kyrie was married to her husband Marc in 1995. They have five children, Jacob, Max, Ella, Zoe, and Zachary.”

Dr. Brad Partridge
Dr. Brad Partridge gained his respect for chiropractic, and specifically NUCCA, when he was working as a police officer for Provo Police in Provo, Utah. The job placed a huge physical demand on his body, and he developed some debilitating pain in his leg. He went to several different doctors, and received several different diagnoses as to what the problem was. None were able to help him solve the problem. It was only after seeing a NUCCA chiropractor that he finally experienced complete relief from the pain. It was not long after that Brad retired from police work to become a NUCCA chiropractor, and serve the community in a different way.
Dr. Partridge graduated cum laude from Life Chiropractic College West in Hayward, California, and with honors from his internship at the health clinic there.
Dr. Partridge has many varied interests, all of which are adventurous and active. He loves karate, bull riding, rock climbing, running, shooting, obstacle courses, and serving his country. He is a proud husband, and father Of three wonderful children.
