Dr. Wontaek Hwang (NUCCA Chiropractor)

I believe that taking care of structural frame and body functions are far more important than chasing after the symptoms. I provide 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 cervical spine misalignment).

I’ve completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, graduating with B.S. degree in Molecular and Cellular Biology in 2013. Then, I continued my studies at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA. While I was at school, I worked in the radiology department as a rad tech. I’m an active member at National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association and Delta Sigma Chi. 

My uncle, Dr. Young Chung (NUCCA chiropractor), first introduced me about the chiropractic philosophy when I was in high school. I visited his office when he was working with Dr. Marshall Dickholtz, Sr. in Chicago, IL. Visiting his NUCCA office got me incredibly curious about the relationship between the neck and the nervous system. I’ve been practicing as a NUCCA practitioner since 2018. I have taken at least over 400+ X-rays of complex cases going through apprenticeship. I’ve been involved with helping over 1000+ new and active cases that are related to the Atlas subluxation (head/neck misalignment) since 2018. I’m currently a candidate for NUCCA board certification level I as of August 2022.
