DR. JEFF DEYOUNG, D.C., C.C.S.P. - FUNCTIONAL HEALTH NETWORK PARTNER
The Functional Health Institute is a national network of specially trained, independent healthcare practitioners who promote prevention, and wellness in their clinic, using functional, integrative and nutritional approaches with their patients.
These practitioners also work with their community of corporations, fitness centers and churches by holding events, such as the proprietary “Prevention & Wellness Open House” that excites, educates and empowers people to take control of their health. This “taking control of their health” is accomplished by having patients learn how to have correct food habits to support healthy blood sugar and body composition, while correcting functional imbalances before they become disease conditions, and ensuring the root cause of symptoms are addressed.
Dr. Jeff DeYoung, D.C., C.C.S.P. has over 28 years of experience and is a certified chiropractic sports practitioner, so not only is he very effective at treating your neck, back and related symptoms, he is also very effective and experienced at treating shoulder and upper extremity, as well as lower extremity symptoms and injuries. He uses hands on diversified adjustment techniques, as well as ArthroStim.
