Chiropractor Victoria Gazdacka D.C.

Chiropractor Elmhurst IL Victoria Gazdacka

Dr. Vicki Gazdacka received her undergraduate degree from South Dakota State University in 1998. Upon joining the workforce, she began to realize how difficult it was to maintain a healthy lifestyle while balancing work and family commitments. Soon, Dr. Vicki was also balancing a constantly ill child who frequently woke struggling to breathe due to undiagnosed food allergies. Meanwhile, she was battling severe low back pain that left her unable to hold her son for more than a few minutes. It was years, and countless doctor and emergency room visits later, that Dr. Vicki and her family began seeing a chiropractor. Within the year, her family’s health was restored and she had enrolled at National University of Health Sciences to study chiropractic with a goal of bringing health to others.

In 2013, Dr. Vicki graduated from National University of Health Sciences with a Doctor of Chiropractic degree (DC). During her time at National University of Health Sciences, Dr. Vicki began to recognize the healing potential found in food and plants, and she also pursued advanced courses in functional nutrition and botanical medicine. Dr. Vicki also teaches Biomechanics at Benedictine University.

​“My purpose as a physician is to educate and empower my patients to take control of their health. I use my training in chiropractic, rehabilitation and nutrition to help my patients reach their individual health goals, because I believe that in medicine, one size does NOT fit all. I look at all aspects of my patients' lives to find their unique barriers to health. I do not subscribe to the idea that there is a magic pill that will make everything better. I believe that each person has the capability to achieve good health; they just need the right materials, good guidance, and a chance."

Dr. Vicki is certified in McKenzie Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy, a method of therapy that uses the natural movements of the body to heal the back and neck as well as the extremities (shoulders, knees, ankles, and wrists). Patients treated with McKenzie Therapy are typically able to perform exercises at home to speed their healing while they are not in the physician’s office.

Dr. Vicki is certified in Webster Technique, a gentle chiropractic technique that addresses concerns related specifically to pregnancy. This technique is a proven treatment that is safe and effective for both mom and baby during pregnancy.

Dr. Patrick Schneider D.C., NRCME, CFMP

Chiropractor Elmhurst IL Patrick Schneider

Dr. Schneider is a 2013 graduate of National University of Health Sciences in Lombard, IL. As an undergraduate, Dr. Schneider majored in History at Wheaton College. He then worked a variety of jobs ranging from bookseller to police officer before becoming a full-time firefighter and paramedic. During his eight years as a firefighter/paramedic, he sustained several on-the-job injuries and watched other firefighters endure similar problems. With that in mind, Dr. Schneider left the fire service and enrolled in chiropractic school. He quickly developed an interest in functional rehabilitation as a way to prevent injuries. This was combined with an interest in nutrition to help people operate at their optimal state with a much lower rate of injury.

Chris Rogus - Advanced Nutrition Response Testing Practitioner

Chiropractic Elmhurst IL Chris Rogus Advanced Nutrition Response Testing PractitionerChris Rogus is graduate of Advanced Clinical Training in Nutrition Response Testing. She has been practicing independently for 3 years and apprenticed 2 years while she was studying for her certification.

Chris was first a Nutrition Response Testing patient. She knew from seeing and experiencing this holistic health method, that she wanted to learn and use the skills to help others. Each day when she comes into work, her purpose is to help as many families as possible get well and stay well, using the most natural means possible. Chris truly feels that Nutrition Response Testing is the best therapy to help heal the body and achieve optimal health.

Chris believes that natural healthcare is the most valuable tool for our futures. She feels that many “health” systems are less than optimal – from being over medicated as a society to an over dependence on processed food sources. "Having a mildly autistic son, I started to look for the reasons why. I became frustrated at the layers of misinformation shared by wellmeaning people, as well as those with hidden agendas. I am making it my mission to help my patients who want to live healthier lifestyles by using whatever tools I can, and there is no way better to do this than through Nutrition Response Testing.”
