Dr. Janice Jurack
My parents brought me to a chiropractor in grade school after finding out I had a scoliosis (abnormal spinal curvature). I continued to use chiropractic care throughout my high school and college years to operating at peak performance in sports.
I shadowed the chiropractor in college and felt that the atmosphere was warm and caring, and the patients were coming in happy and ready to get well. I noticed the doctor spent time with each patient and was treating the cause of the problem. I then started working for this chiropractor and loved it! We saw miracles every day.
During chiropractic school I started to have allergies, sinus problems, more fatigue and side pain when I went running. I tried a variety of OTC and prescription medications recommended by a MD, but they did not help beyond symptomatic relief. As soon as I stopped taking the medication, the symptoms got worse again. The medications were not getting to the cause of the problem.
A friend of mine then recommended her chiropractor in Chicago, who was able to diagnose my problem and get me healthier than I had ever been up to that point. I found out things about my body I never would have guessed in a million years, including that I had food sensitivities, weak adrenal glands, and my body was toxic. I not only noticed resolution of the problems I mentioned above, but my whole body started functioning better. Even things I just thought were normal for my body got balanced and healthy again. This approach was exactly what I was looking for and I was hooked. This has been my model for the last 17 years.
