About the Team of Big Hill Chiropractic & Massage Therapy Centre

Dr. Peter Koebisch, Chiropractor and Owner

Dr. Koebisch received a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Toronto in 1973. Four years of further study and an internship resulted in a Doctor of Chiropractic degree from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in 1977. After a decade of private practice in Calgary, Peter opened a clinic in Cochrane when the population was still around 4,500.


Peter has lived in the rural Cochrane area since 1983 and the new, multidisciplinary clinic was constructed in 2000. He operates a general evidence-based practice based on orthopedic diagnosis and motion palpation of the spine and extremities. Diversified manipulation techniques are the mainstay of his practice. Therapeutic ultrasound, custom foot orthotics, braces/supports, and exercises are also provided as required. If his experience determines that additional care is required, he will make the appropriate professional referral.
