Julie Schmitt joined the Long Chiropractic Team as a Chiropractic Technician in March 2016. You’ll find her assisting our doctors in the clinical aspect of our practice. Julie is Certified to work with and teach our patient's therapy exercises. She also performs our laser, ultrasound, and spinal decompression therapies.

“It is so rewarding to see our patients thrive under chiropractic care and I’m honored to be part of their journey toward wellness!”

Julie and her husband Hans live near Birnamwood with their 2 dogs. Their son and daughter are both married, living in Bellingham, WA, and Peshtigo, WI respectively. In her free time, Julie enjoys spending time with her family, yoga, hiking, kayaking, snowshoeing, and just being outdoors.

*Under Services and Therapeutic Exercises Please remove what we have there and include this: I will soon send a few pictures we'd like to accompany this text. In the meantime, can you remove the one with the woman next to the pool? We don't have a pool, seems very out of place.*

Here at Long Chiropractic Center, we encourage our patients to take an active roll in their journey toward wellness. Our certified Chiropractic Therapy Exercise Technician works one on one with each patient on a stretching and exercise program specifically tailored to the individual. 

The patient then does this program at home to enhance and support the outcome of their care.

Your Chiropractor may also recommend our state of the art laser therapy. Please see the Laser Therapy tab for more detailed information on this exciting option.

Along with Laser, we offer Ultrasound or Electric Muscle Stimulation therapies. Ultrasound therapy is the use of sound waves to treat musculoskeletal problems like inflammation from injuries (sprains, tendinitis, bursitis). Electrical Muscle Stimulation is a therapy treatment that uses mild electrical pulses to help repair injured muscles, manipulate nerves, and reduce your pain.


Nikki Maxwell is a UWSP graduate and has 5 years of clinic experience in both patient care as well as routine office activities such as billing, scheduling, etc. She believes that wellness starts in the care and pride you have in yourself. A more natural approach to health care and nutrition are key aspects to a healthy lifestyle, and she loves to ensure your care is the best it can be. She is passionate about making each patient feel welcomed and comfortable and helping Dr. Casey educate her patients in how chiropractic care can help all people.

When she isn't in the office she's keeping up with her daughter at dance and enjoying activities with her family, like weekend getaways and exploring the North woods. Nikki also enjoys reading personal development books, listening to podcasts, keeping active with sports and working out as well as researching and trying new recipes
