What’s Crackin’ With Chiropractors? (with Adam Bruene, DC)

What's the deal with Chiropractors? Is it all about the pop/crack/adjustment? Do they only treat back issues? What's their training like? What's the science behind it? How can I find a good one??

Cue Adam Bruene, DC, CertMDT, DNSP! He is a Doctor of Chiropractic medicine with special training/certification in McKenzie Diagnosis and Treatment, as well as Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization. In this episode, Dr. Bruene de-mystifies Chiropractic medicine by explaining its roots, current practice, and hopeful future (HINT: it involves collaboration with other physical medicine folks- like MDs, DOs, PTs and more!)

OF COURSE we are gonna talk about the marriage of Chiropractic and MD/Allopathic medicine- because, as you may have guessed, Adam Bruene and Julie Bruene partnered to become the Doctors Bruene!

Kick back, relax, and come with us on this journey into ChiroWorld! And, no, you don't have to marry a Chiropractor to find a great one ;)

Dr. Adam Bruene practices at Aligned Modern Health in Chicago, IL. Find out more about him at https://alignedmodernhealth.com/people/chiropractic-physicians/dr-adam-bruene-dc-certmdt/

Julie Bruene

Profile picture for Julie Bruene
Dr. Julie (Julia if we’re being formal, Julia Rose if she’s in trouble) Bruene is a sports medicine physician at Midwest Orthopaedics at RUSH, a renowned, nationally-ranked orthopedic practice in Chicago. She serves as a team physician for the Chicago White Sox, Chicago Bulls, and DePaul University. Aside from her obvious interests in sports and medicine, she is a true crime obsessive and is a total sucker for rescued cats. She lives in Chicago with her husband and partner-in-crime, Adam, and with several of the aforementioned rescued cats. We don’t need to get into specifics about the exact number here. She likes when people are kind to one another and when animals dress up like other animals. Rock over London, rock on Chicago.
