Meet Dr. Jim Claussen
Dr. Jim Claussen is not your everyday run of the mill chiropractor. His alternative approach to patient care extends beyond the needs of the body to also include the needs of the mind and soul. With over 20 years of studying and learning from experts all over the world, Dr. Jim provides whole-person care for each of his patients.
Getting Started in Chiropractic
He began his journey toward health and personal growth after dislocating his shoulder six times as a young adult. This gave him exposure to several chiropractors and planted the seed for a future career in the healthcare field. He later became a personal trainer and athletic trainer, with an interest in exercise, physiology and nutrition. He is a people person who enjoys working with his hands, which led him to simultaneously pursue a degree at the National College of Chiropractic, where he graduated in 1994. He continued his post-doctorate studies under other professionals to bring the highest quality of healthcare to his patients.
Approach to Care
Dr. Jim’s sees symptoms as a way for the body, mind and spirit to communicate what it needs. By decoding these messages, he is able to provide patients with treatment plans that accommodate the whole-person not just a single aspect of them. He adjusts more than your spine, he adjusts your mind and spirit to create space, time and opportunity for your body to take good care of itself and regrow stronger, healthier and more vital.
Nowhere is this more apparent than in his work with children where he has personally witnessed drastic results. From soothing inconsolable babies with colic to stopping chronic ear infections to seeing neural regeneration, Dr. Jim’s special blend of chiropractic care has provided hope to families where hope has been lost.
Through the use of chiropractic techniques, muscle response testing and a hands-on, non-forceful energy balancing procedure, Dr. Claussen brings a deeper level of healing and consciousness by re-establishing the full healing potential of the body. Understanding that the body makes no mistakes regarding health and longevity, B.E.S.T. principles acknowledge the concept of interference we create with our conscious mind. This interference causes imbalances in the autonomic nervous system, leading to exhaustion of our organ systems over time.
Outside of the Practice
Dr. Jim lives in the western Chicago suburbs with his wife Annette and their five daughters. He enjoys playing golf, snowboarding, and wake surfing. Dr. Jim is also a member of Crossfit Warrenville where he keeps his body strong and healthy—two important components of health!
Dr. Jim is a member of chiropractic organizations including the Illinois Chiropractic Association (ICA), ISPCA, COPS and the International Chiropractic Knights of the Roundtable.
