whole is doing better in terms of proper nutrition and exercise, Dr. Giebler said, “I definitely think people are more interested and looking for it more, but people have to work on it more. It’s a personal responsibility that needs to be fostered.”

Dr. Giebler sets a great example to his patients by remaining very active himself, often talking about his exercise “projects” in his column in this newspaper or in Giebler Chiropractic’s monthly e-mailed newsletter. Distance running and skiing are among his activities, as are regular morning basketball games at Kiel High School. Staff member Kim Olson also joins him in the basketball games. Kim is also a great advocate for Giebler Chiropractic patients for the power of proper nutrition and exercise as she has used both in her fight against breast cancer.

Keeping family first

Nic’s wife Ellie joins him in his active lifestyle but also stays busy as the office manager at Giebler Chiropractic, not to mention helping to raise their two children, Estelle and Edwin.

To provide the couple with a little more time with their children this summer, Giebler Chiropractic will be closed on Fridays starting around mid-June to the end of August. That schedule also will allow Dr. Giebler the time needed to attend some of the seminars to which he is looking forward.

There still will be plenty of time to see patients four days per week as Dr. Giebler and his staff are often at work until 6 p. m. or later. While most of his patients come from the immediate area of Kiel, New Holstein, Elkhart Lake and Chilton, he also has helped people from Green Bay to Sheboygan to Random Lake. He said the number of people he sees has grown each year.

But Dr. Giebler also finds time to be out in the community and active in its events, helping and participating where he can. “I enjoy it,” he said. “It’s fun to be part of a team and get something done.”

And that is true whether he is talking about his community service or the Giebler Chiropractic staff’s work with their patients.
