About Us

Dr. Zumstein is different than most chiropractors. He has authored a professionally endorsed book, Secrets to Preventing Back and Neck Pain: 60 Ways to Protect Your Spine.

He has a master's degree in sports rehab, certifications in acupuncture, applied kinesiology and Webster Technique for pregnant mothers. He is also McKenzie trained. As a result, Dr. Zumstein uses several treatment options in conjunction with chiropractic to find out what works best for you.

While first working as an associate, Dr. Zumstein encountered countless patients, who asked him the same questions: why does my back hurt, how can I stop it from hurting, and how can I prevent it from hurting again? As a result, he formed The Back Safety & Wellness Consultants in 2011 to educate the public on preventing, reducing, and eliminating back and neck pain through his professionally endorsed book, spine stabilizing products and consulting services.

After dedicating time to promote his book and consulting services, Dr. Zumstein opened Back Safety & Wellness Center so he could return to his true love: chiropractic. As a licensed doctor of chiropractic, Dr. Zumstein knows that patient education only helps a patient to a certain extent. Chiropractic care is frequently the missing link needed to get a patient back to 100% health. Dr. Zumstein combines patient education with chiropractic care to increase your chances of a full recovery and future well-being.

Dr. Zumstein has worked with and treated Division I collegiate and professional athletes and has spent endless hours researching his passion: eliminating back and neck pain. He has been featured on National Public Radio, WGN-TV, NBC and FOX.

Dr. Zumstein grew up in Homewood, and is a graduate of Marian Catholic High School, Marquette University and Logan College of Chiropractic.

Did You Know?

Chiropractors are licensed physicians in the state of Illinois.

Chiropractors must undergo four years of post-graduate schooling and a chiropractic residency before earning their doctorate.

Chiropractors undergo the same amount of classroom training as M.D.'s. A major difference in schooling is that while M.D.'s learn their pharmacology training, chiropractors learn their technique training.
