Dr. Joe Glowiak received his Bachelor Degree in Biomedical Sciences as well as his Doctorate in Chiropractic Medicine from National University of Health Sciences. During his education at NUHS, he served as an assistant teacher and tutor in internal and neuroanatomy. Dr. Glowiak also worked as a research assistant in the clinical studies department assessing the use of foot orthotics for low back pain.
Dr. Glowiak is passionate about supporting his patients with healthy eating recommendations and specific nutritional supplements that help to restore health and vitality. Dr. Glowiak draws his nutritional expertise from his Master’s Degree in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine program at University of Western States, Portland, Oregon. Outside of his master’s degree, Dr. Glowiak has also taken extensive postgraduate coursework related to gastrointestinal disorders endocrine function, and botanical medicine.
Dr. Glowiak is certified in the practice of Acupuncture in the state of Illinois. He has successfully implemented acupuncture techniques to help patients with musculoskeletal conditions, insomnia, stress and headaches. Dr. Glowiak was selected among his peers to participate in an additional internship at the VA Illiana Health Care System, in Danville, Illinois, where his acupuncture skills were especially beneficial to the veterans.
Physical therapy is also an important aspect of patient care at Chiromend. Without proper exercise, tight, overused muscles create an imbalance with other muscles that have weakened, which leads to joint pain. Dr. Glowiak has taken courses through the American Chiropractic Rehabilitation Board in corrective exercise and functional strength training.
Dr. Glowiak enjoys an active lifestyle outside of the clinic, and loves camping, hiking, bicycling, and kayaking with his fiancé and friends. You can also spot him endurance inline skating in the streets while jamming out to his favorite music. His love of cooking delicious and nutritious food with the use of spices also stands out as a favorite pastime.
