An Upper Cervical Chiropractor Wontaek Hwang, DC has now opened his private practice, Head & Neck Spinal Care. Dr. Hwang has been seeing patients as an independent practitioner at NUCCA Wellness Clinic of Chicago between 2018 to 2022. He’s been training his N.U.C.C.A. (National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association) technique with Dr. Young Chung. During his associateship, he was able to meet well over 1000+ patients who have been suffering from the brain and spine disorders.
Dr. Hwang was first introduced to NUCCA chiropractic when Dr. Chung was an associate with Dr. Dickholtz, Sr. in Chicago, IL. Dr. Dickholtz, Sr. was well-known for a hypertension study that was published in The Journal of Hypertension Research from Nature. Ever since Dr. Hwang experienced his first NUCCA adjustment in 2009, he was incredibly curious about the relationship between the brain and the spine.
Dr. Hwang has experience of managing a variety of health conditions such as Migraines, persistent headaches, Vertigo (dizziness with “spinning” sensation), Meniere’s Disease (chronic dizziness with loss of balance), Sciatica (nerve pain in the leg), Post Concussion Syndrome (mTBI/brain injury-related symptoms), Multiple Sclerosis (brainstem compression), etc.
Dr. Hwang says, “taking care of structural frame and body functions are far more important than chasing after the symptoms.” He works closely with neuro-optometrists, neuromuscular dentists, physicians, physical therapists, and performance coaches to ensure his patients for the optimal health and wellness care.
Dr. Hwang graduated from University of Illinois-Urbana Champaign in 2013, and he further pursued his education by attending Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA. He’s been actively participating in National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association and Delta Sigma Chi Professional Fraternity. He’s also an active member of International Chiropractic Association–Council on Upper Cervical Care. While he was attending school, he worked as an assistant at Radiology Department.
