About Dr. Brian Glaus

My passion for chiropractic began back in high school. I had a football injury to my knee that my orthopedic doctor claimed could only be fixed with surgery. Wanting to avoid surgery, I turned to my brother who was in chiropractic college at the time to see if chiropractic could help me. As a result of those adjustments, my pain went away and I avoided surgery. It was this experience with chiropractic led me to become a chiropractor.

I graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in February 1995 and began my life-long quest to educate people about chiropractic. My first practice was in Tempe AZ and I have been involved in clinics all across the U.S.

I have helped a lot of patients with back and neck related problems over the years but one that stands out in my mind is a young 2-year old girl who did not have normal bowel movements for the first 2 years of her life. Her mom, who was a patient of mine, asked if I could help her daughter. Because of repeated visits to various doctors for her problem, the girl was petrified of doctors and screamed through the whole exam. I did the exam and first adjustment through her tears but afterwards she went home and had her first normal bowel movement that night. Over the course of many visits she would come in, give me a hug, grab my finger and lead me back to the adjustment room. She continues to do well today.

I have four healthy kids of my own who were all first adjusted when they were just hours old. Helping kids through chiropractic is a passion of mine. Kids respond well to chiropractic and seeing them bounce back from falls and the stresses their young bodies go through is so rewarding. The saying goes, “As the twig is bent so grows the tree.” That saying vividly describes the connection between the spine and the growing body.

My mission is to help as many people as possible obtain a healthy lifestyle through chiropractic care. Whether you are in pain from a new injury, chronic illness or simply want a wellness check on the condition of your spine, call me at Palatine Wellness Group today and learn how chiropractic can help you.

IMG_2886Chiropractic is like that childhood friend that comes around at the right time; it shows up when you need it most, and gives you the assurance and help you are looking for.  Luckily for me, my relationship with chiropractic started during my childhood when I suffered a serious soccer injury.  I was only able to lift my leg a few inches off the ground, and after traditional care proved ineffective, it was suggested I be checked out by a chiropractor.  After being treated, I became symptom free and was able to return to something I genuinely loved doing, and it was then that I realized the true value of chiropractic care. 

I knew from there that I would always resort to chiropractic for my personal care, but decided to experience different avenues during my education.  I attended Allegheny College as an undergraduate in Meadville, PA.  Fortunately, I was recruited to play soccer, became a 4-year scholar athlete and ended up earning my Bachelor’s of Science degree in Neuroscience.  My passion for neuroscience grew the more I learned, and left me torn between pursuing medical neurology or chiropractic.  

 

I decided to take the chiropractic route and attended Palmer College of Chiropractic West in San Jose, CA in 2013.  After I graduated, I practiced as an associate doctor and part-time personal trainer.  I sought to integrate rehabilitative exercise, chiropractic techniques and neurology to improve patient symptoms and further establish functionality.  The clinic I worked for offered a great perspective of clinical practice as it integrated various chiropractic and medical techniques to address unique conditions that failed to respond to traditional methods of treatment.  I was fortunate to work with a diverse patient base, consisting of all ages with conditions such as, ankylosing spondylitis, various forms of neuropathy, temporomandibular dysfunction, vertigo, sleep apnea, migraine headaches, frozen shoulder, scoliosis, infantile colic, sciatica; and had great success with them.        

 

After working for a few months in the Bay area I decided to progress my clinical experience, and found myself moving out to Palatine, IL to take over the Lake Zurich Wellness Group.  Though my collegiate days are long over, I continue to pursue a healthy lifestyle via playing soccer competitively, exercising frequently and maintaining a balanced diet.  I also continue to challenge my fitness by participating in Spartan races and other similar competitions.  I will never truly hang up the boots, because athletics has been such an integral part of my life, and I owe much of my success and athletic career to the chiropractic care I received.     

 

It is my duty as a chiropractic doctor to educate patients on understanding their bodies and when something is wrong.  Many people wait until their condition is so debilitating or so severe they have nowhere else to turn, when that should not be the case.  Recognizing certain indicators your body is trying to communicate to you, whether it be via pain, or apprehension, or mood changes, is the appropriate time to find help.  I wish to convert the paradigm of chiropractic; rather than being pain management specialists, it should be recognized as a form of primary care, allowing patients the best quality treatment before resorting to more invasive practices.  This way we can focus on nurturing our bodies holistically, and make sure each system is functioning at full capacity and cooperating with one another.  In other words, through chiropractic we can really concentrate on fulfilling good health and well-being.  This will help us avoid MANAGING our lives, and allow us to start LIVING.  To find out more about our office and staff please feel free to contact me at the Lake Zurich Wellness Group for a consultation.
