Dr. Wontaek Hwang (NUCCA Chiropractor)

Dr. Wontaek believes that taking care of the structural frame and the quality of body functions are far more important than chasing after the symptoms. He provides a simple solution to restore health and body balance. When there is a symptom such as a headache, most patients are told to take medication after medication to mask the pain. Although the symptoms may be present in the head, neck, low back, arms, or legs, the root cause of many health issues can be present due to the abnormal structural position of the craniocervical junction (upper neck).

Wontaek completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in Molecular and Cellular Biology in 2013. He continued his studies at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA. Ever since his admission to chiropractic school, he has been dedicated to stay incredibly curious about two areas: Chiropractic philosophy and Atlas Subluxation Complex. He’s been actively involved with National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association and Delta Sigma Chi. His special interests in the biomechanics of the upper neck led him to learn more about neuroplasticity and brain health. After graduation, Wontaek started his associateship with Dr. Young Chung at NUCCA Wellness Clinic of Chicago.
