Dr. Dana Schomberg, DC shares her personal story and how she found chiropractic care.
Hi there my name is Dr. Dana Schomberg and I am a chiropractor at West End Chiropractic & Wellness. And as a chiropractor, you could say that I specialize really in all conditions relating to the spine but it goes a whole lot deeper than that. I guess to give you a little background about myself, I grew up in La Crosse, Wisconsin on a farm, in a little town with maybe the overall mentality if it's not broke don't fix it.
Well, the chiropractic philosophy is a little bit different than that because it's easier to fix little tiny problems than wait until something is broken. So I was always fascinated by the body's ability to heal itself when given the right tools. Western medicine wasn't necessarily my jam. Physical therapy wasn't really necessarily what I was interested in. I was looking for something a little bit deeper than that.
In college, I went to the University of Minnesota. I stumbled into chiropractic and I thought it was pretty interesting that when the body is in alignment, when you give it the right tools from a nutritional standpoint and an exercise standpoint, can actually heal itself.
So shortly after I learned that philosophy, I enrolled in chiropractic school at Northwestern Health Sciences University, which is here in the metro area in Bloomington. I finished my schooling undergraduate and my graduate degree in about seven-and-a-half years and ended with my Doctorate. I graduated in November of 2011 and I've been practicing at West End Chiropractic & Wellness ever since.
Why would you say you chose this path for your career?
I think the main reason why I wanted to become a chiropractor is because, again I've just been incredibly fascinated by the human body. I've always been into exercise. I've always been into nutrition, and it was just a really good fit. What Chiropractic believes in, is that if you give the body the right tools from a physical alignment standpoint, from an exercise standpoint, and nutrition standpoint your body's going to heal itself. You're not going to have to deal with aches and pains. You won't have to deal with chronic disease. You'll be healthy, you'll function at a hundred percent and life will be a lot a lot easier and a lot better for people.
