Chiropractic Care and Addressing Root Cause of Health Problems

Dr. Jake Young loves helping his Iowa City patients get back in the game. When he was a younger athlete, Dr. Jake went to chiropractors as he sustained various injuries while playing sports. This continued on to his college years where he played basketball. Doing so allowed him to keep playing and practicing.

Enabling Others to Stay Active

As an athlete, Dr. Jake enjoys the active lifestyle aspect of chiropractic. He likes helping his patients pursue the sports and activities that they are passionate about. Chiropractic care takes a preventative approach to your health. It’s not about giving medication once there’s a problem, it’s about helping bodies function at their optimum ability so problems don’t arise in the first place.

Addressing Root Causes of
Health Problems

Dr. Jake, who was valedictorian of his class at Palmer Chiropractic College in Davenport, feels we live in a culture that’s focused on treating symptoms instead of addressing the underlying causes of problems. “We want to get our patients to understand that they may not feel better immediately, but that it takes time.” Dr. Jake believes that, like exercise, getting better is a process. Our plan is to find the underlying cause, come up with a plan to help our patients get well and then educate them on how to maintain their health.
