Dr. Jennifer Allen
Doctor of Chiropractic
Discover Health and Wellness, Uptown
As a practitioner I am dedicated to helping people reach their highest level of human potential and life expression through natural, restorative approaches to health. After almost 20 years of practicing chiropractic and holistic healthcare my mantra is simple – I’m here to help you put the odds in your favor to live well.
My experience with chiropractic care began when my first job out of college involved a demanding travel schedule, including a lot of airline travel. I began getting adjustments for some mid back pain I was experiencing – I was carrying around a 20 pound laptop computer at the time. I would often hang around after my adjustment asking questions about the care and profession, eventually making a decision to pursue my Doctorate in Chiropractic in 1994 at Cleveland Chiropractic College in Kansas City.
A brush with a life threatening illness occurred in March of 2000 when I developed Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome, a very severe issue. That experience informed my professional and personal life moving forward. After a life flight and an extended stay in the hospital, my physicians weighed in that the only reason I survived that ordeal was due to me being in good shape going into it – in other words, the odds were in my favor based on my lifestyle. Thus, my reminder to every patient – we are here to help you put the odds in your favor to live well. As such – I focus on simple lifestyle strategies as a compliment to any chiropractic care you may need or pursue.
I continue to study health and healing principles for both myself and my patients. I received my B.S. in Nutrition from Kansas State University, so supportive nutrition is a key consideration in my clinical point of view. I live with autoimmune disease, as does my spouse, so we navigate our lifestyle and best care practices to keep ourselves feeling and living well to the best of our ability. We know what it’s like to need a partner in care and we strive to provide that successfully for each of our patients. My goal is to provide informed knowledge and support to our patients.
I look forward to the opportunity to serve you as a provider with Discover Health and Wellness!
