Dr. J.A. Hernandez

Dr. Hernandez: a Bilingual Chiropractor with Knowledge and Experience you can Trust.

In the office, Doctor Hernandez takes an approach that is designed to not only eliminate pain, but also to correct the reason for the pain.  Doctor Hernandez's approach to chiropractic is one based in science.  It has been shown that the brain controls every cell in the human body and communicates to each cell through the nervous system.  This makes it paramount for each person to ensure that their nervous system is fully functional.   When the nervous system functions at less than its optimal level patients will start to feel symptoms.  These symptoms are not simply something that needs to be covered up, but a warning sign that there is a weak link in the system.  Once under care, Doctor Hernandez will use a variety of treatment techniques, based on the condition you are suffering from.

Dr. Hernandez is originally from the northwestern suburbs of Chicago, Illinois.  He completed his pre-medical studies at the University of Illinois, Champaign.  He received his bachelor degree in Human Biology from National College of Chiropractic in 1990 and his Doctorate of Chiropractic from National College of Chiropractic in 1992.  He has completed over 800 hours of post graduate studies in orthopedics, spinal trauma, sports injuries, rehabilitation, chiropractic science and nervous system restoration.  He is always looking for new and improved ways to help his patients.  He especially enjoy helping people with difficult and challenging cases, these patients are the ones who push him to never stop learning, in-order to be able to offer a new advanced technologies and fresh perspective to care and not the same old standard treatment.
