Dr. Zachary Brocker, DC, MSR, MSN, MBA, CCSP, CKTP, FAKTR, is a native of Glendale, Wisconsin, a suburb of Milwaukee. Having interest in healthcare as a young as a child, Dr. Brocker gained interest in chiropractic with their approach to solving medical issues versus prescribing medications for every problem. As a result, he worked under a chiropractor in the Milwaukee Metro area from the time he was in high school, through undergrad/graduate schooling and even as a chiropractor after he graduated from Logan College of Chiropractic in April of 2015. Dr. Brocker started his education under the Natural Science Department Scholarship at Cardinal Stritch University where he studied under their pre-professional program for future chiropractic, medical and dental students. He was able to gain early admission to Logan College of Chiropractic, where he completed his Bachelors in Life Science simultaneously with his Doctor of Chiropractic.

After graduating with his Doctorate of Chiropractic Degree, he was interest in distinguishing himself from more veteran chiropractors in his field and got his Masters of Science Sports Science and Rehabilitation (MSR), Masters of Nutrition and Human Performance (MSN) (both from Logan University), Masters in Business Administration with a Healthcare Concentration (MBA) (from Cardinal Stritch University) and certifications as a Certified Chiropractic Sports Practitioner (CCSP), Certified Kinesio Taping Practitioner (CKTP) and a Functional And Kinetic Treatment with Rehab (FATKR). Under his FAKTR certification he can do IASTM (Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization) work, cupping, nerve flossing and dynamic taping. Dr. Brocker is also trained in dry needling. Dr. Brocker is also certified by the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners for not only all four chiropractic parts as required by the State of Wisconsin, but he is also board certified for Physiotherapy and holds a Nutrition Counseling License for the State of Wisconsin. Dr. Brocker holds the philosophy to do more than the bare minimum and will take at least twice the amount of continuing education hours required by the State of Wisconsin to be as current and up to date on recent research and protocols when treating patients.

Outside of his professional life, Dr. Brocker holds the rare distinction of being an Eagle Scout with all three Eagle Palms (Bronze, Gold and Silver). He is very dedicated to helping and spending time with his family and friends outside of the office. He is no stranger to the area as his dad is original from New Holstein and still has family and friends that live in the New Holstein and Kiel area. Dr. Brocker’s family was also responsible in 2000 to have revived the Fireman’s Picnic in New Holstein by choregraphing “The Brocker Memorial Fireworks Shows,” for 11 seasons. During their tenure choregraphing the show, it was the largest fireworks display North of Milwaukee in the State of Wisconsin. One of his favorite past times is going up to his family’s cabin in Florence County to relax, go four wheeling, hunting, and in recent years property improvements that includes planting several trees and various plants to help feed his “critters” for the many years to come.
