Meet The Doctors

Dr. Dean Cherniak, D.C. is a Chiropractor at Northbrook

Dr. Dean Cherniak joined The Joint Chiropractic Glenview Clinic in May of 2017. He had been a family practice chiropractor for over 18 years. He is a 1991’ graduate of the University of Wisconsin where he earned his Bachelor of Science in Human Biology and Health Sciences. He earned his Doctorate of Chiropractic in 1998 from the National College of Chiropractic. In addition, he has completed post-graduate studies in pediatrics, spinal correction and rehabilitation, nutrition, strength and conditioning, pain management and utilizes “hands on” manual and Activator Protocol adjusting and other instrument techniques. In 2008, Dr. Dean received his Certification in Sports Medicine and has worked with athletes of all ages and competition levels. Dr. Dean continues to stay abreast of the current research in chiropractic and source of information for the community on current health issues.

My first experience with Chiropractic was in 1994. I was very active and conscious about health and living a healthy lifestyle. I was involved in a weight lifting injury while performing squats. My friend and weight lifting partner had pulled the safety bars out from the “rack” before I had a chance to get the weight under control. I quickly twisted and fell to the ground and felt immediate sharp lower back pain. My friend’s brother-in-law happened to be a local chiropractor but I told him that it was OK “that it would eventually go away” Well, my job at the time consisted of a lot of sitting and the pain only got worse. By the third week my simple lower back pain had traveled down into my left leg so it made sitting at my job unbearable. So, I swallowed my pride and went to go see my friend’s bother-in-law. I walked into his office and found him to be professional and his office was very welcoming and relaxing to be in. He talked to me about Chiropractic asked me questions about my health and the injury. He did an exam, took X-rays, than placed hot packs on my back. The doctor came in laid me on my side and placed his hand on my lower back twisted my like a pretzel heard a series of pops and immediately my pain was gone! I was so amazed that I followed through my chiropractic care plan and went onto a maintenance plan. Half way though my initial care plan I had asked him where he went to school. I was so impressed with this type of healthcare that I quit my job at the Medical College of Wisconsin and enrolled in Chiropractic College in 1995.

I am a native of McHenry County. I grew up in Cary, attended grade school at Prairie Grove School. I am a 1987 graduate of Crystal Lake Central High school. I have three children and currently live in Woodstock. I feel very strongly about getting children under chiropractic care. All three of my children have been under chiropractic care since they were born. I have raised my kids as chiropractic kids and receive regular chiropractic adjustments. I as well my kids are on Gluten Free diets and maintain our health through chiropractic care, supplementation, herbal and homeopathic practices. We do however, seek emergency medicine when absolutely necessary. I would not be here today if it wasn’t for emergency medicine and talented medical profession in our area.

I view healing as a process and not an event. I have been witness to many chiropractic miracles throughout my 18 years of treating generations of family members. Besides treating children with everything from torticollis, ear and sinus infections, concussions and assisting in turning an infant that was breach presentation. My passion lies with treating families from infants to grandmas and grandpas. My emphasis is on the importance of family care because I truly believe when a family is growing physically, mentally and spiritually healthy together they are able to express their fullest potential to live and love more profoundly.
