Background and approach
Dr. Jake learned at an early age the value of taking care of your body to keep pain away. He was very active in wrestling and football in high school, but in his college years was limited by old knee and low back injuries.
“I sought the treatment of a chiropractor which alleviated my pain and allowed me to enjoy college in no time. We all have the potential to live healthy and pain free lives. I love helping my patients to alleviate their pain and sickness without the use of drugs or surgery,” he says.
He started his healthcare career in massage therapy, before working towards a Doctorate of Chiropractic degree from Northwestern Health Sciences University. After countless classroom hours, research, and postgraduate continuing education, he has the skills to optimally help each patient with passionate care and exceptional results.
“It is my passion and commitment to you that sets me apart from other healthcare practitioners,” he says.

- Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA): SFMA is a series of 7 full-body movement tests designed to assess fundamental patterns of movement such as bending and squatting in those with known musculoskeletal pain. When the clinical assessment is initiated from the perspective of the movement pattern, the clinician has the opportunity to identify meaningful impairments that may be seemingly unrelated to the main musculoskeletal complaint, but contribute to the associated disability. This concept, known as Regional Interdependence, is the hallmark of the SFMA.
