Meet The Doctors

Dr. Victor Dapkus, D.C. is a Chiropractor at Northbrook

Dr. Victor W. Dapkus is a Board-Certified Chiropractic physician who is excited to have joined the team at The Joint located in Northbrook in 2017. He has over 20 years of experience in the chiropractic and medical field. He was inspired to become a chiropractor while working at a medical facility. He noticed physicians would first treat patients with prescriptions for their pain and/or other conditions. He believes there is a way to treat a patient that is not entirely dependent on medication or immediate invasive surgery. The best part of being in the chiropractic field is to find ways for people to regain and maintain optimal quality of life.

In addition to operating a successful chiropractic clinic in Chicago, IL for 14 years, Dr. Vic was involved in aquatic rehabilitation. He instructed and coached a group of patients for competitive swimming and helped others become physically stronger and more mobile. Dr. Vic is also an active board member of Louis Valentine's Boys and Girls Club. He volunteers by taking special needs children fishing, serving meals to the less fortunate and participating in annual fundraisers.

In 1999, Dr. Vic earned his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from National University of Health Sciences in Lombard, IL. He is a current member of the Illinois Chiropractic Association, the Illinois Prairie State Chiropractic Association and has received several achievement awards.

He enjoys swimming, traveling and spending quality time with his wife, Carol, and two wonderful daughters, Alli and Lauren. Dr. Vic looks forward to being responsive to patient needs and help them achieve their individual health goals.

Dr. James R. Stegner Jr., D.C. is a Chiropractor at Northbrook

Dr. James R. Stegner Jr., D.C. graduated with his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from National University of Health Sciences (NUHS). He has been helping patients in a variety of clinical backgrounds for over 11 years.

As an avid athlete during his youth, he participated in soccer, wrestling, gymnastics and cheerleading. His own battle with injury and dysfunction began his journey in healthcare. A trampoline accident as a high school gymnast caused a herniated disc in his low back. This accident allowed Dr. Stegner the opportunity to understand how a patient wants and needs to be treated. Through his rehabilitation he learned how the body can heal itself with the use of chiropractic medicine and myofascial release therapy. Dr. Stegner continues to recognize and advocate for the integration of natural healthcare into mainstream medicine.

Dr. Stegner continued on to Bradley University where he completed his undergraduate studies receiving his Bachelor’s degree in Health Sciences. During his time at Bradley, he was a Division I varsity scholarship athlete with the university cheerleading squad, and in his senior year he became the assistant coach. Dedicating himself to cheerleading provided Dr. Stegner with a solid foundation for understanding the value of proper form and technique in order to decrease the potential for injury in sports. His knowledge of altered posture due to pain has reinforced his ideas on practicing preventative medicine as a chiropractor.

Dr. Stegner is an active member of the American Chiropractic Association (ACA), Illinois Chiropractic Society (ICS), and the Alliance for Natural Health – USA. Dr. Stegner incorporates his personal and professional experiences with love and compassion to help his patients achieve balance and optimal wellness.
