Dr. DeCou grew up on the banks of the Muskegon River in Muskegon, Michigan. His family owned a bait and tackle shop where he learned to eat, sleep, and breathe life on the river. Once in school, you could find him on a sports team every season of the year. It is safe to say that not much has changed. Now, Dr. DeCou has brought his active lifestyle and sports minded education to the endless outdoors of Bozeman, Montana

His treatment methods are focused on an active approach healing the body. In a 24 hour day you will find him using and perfecting his education. He is a living example of the, "practice what you preach," method.
Before deciding to study to become a chiropractor, Dr. DeCou was a student athlete at Hillsdale College in Michigan where he ran track and studied biology. He found treatments used by his local chiropractor were vital to his training in college track.
Dr. DeCou is an advocate for developing proper movement patterns in all stages of life. He spends his days in Bozeman challenging his body and mind to better understand the most efficient movement for each endeavor. From cyclocross on the rain soaked fairgrounds of Portland, Oregon to pond hockey on the many lakes of Western Michigan. Throughout his life Dr. DeCou has prided himself on living a very active lifestyle, and he has an appreciation for improving movement patterns for a more durable athlete or another pain free client.
Dr. DeCou looks forward to bringing his personal experience and chiropractic care to Bozeman, the Gallatin Valley and those passing through the Big Sky of Southwest Montana.
