Nolan Plocek D.C.

Location: Helena
Dr. Nolan Plocek grew up in the Black Hills of South Dakota and Broadus, MT. He fought wildland fire for the USFS and BLM while attending undergraduate studies. He moved to Davenport, IA to attend Palmer College of Chiropractic, graduating in 2012. 

Dr. Nolan and his wife, Dr. Melissa, moved to the western slope of Colorado where they owned and operated a highly specialized practice focusing on the upper cervical spine for eight years before moving to South Dakota. It didn't take long for them to realize how much they missed the mountains and took the opportunity to purchase Intermountain Chiropractic in 2021. Dr. Nolan is trained in Gonstead, Diversified, Thompson Drop, Activator and Manual Therapy and brings the expertise of his past experience with a specialized technique and his passion for functional and proper movement to the Helena and Deer Lodge offices. When he isn't working, he loves to spend time outdoors camping, hunting and fishing, playing with his two boys, and supporting the Helena Bighorns hockey club.
