Introducing Hillside Chiropractor
Dr. Dana Celar (DC, CACCP)
Have you always thought that chiropractors only treat low back pain? That's what I used to think as well. Let me tell you my story...
I grew up in Niagara Falls, Canada. In high school I was a pitcher on the softball team when I began having pain in my right pitching shoulder. Pain medication would just upset my stomach, and did not provide much relief anyway. Muscle relaxers just made me drowsy all day, which I didn't like either.
A friend of mine recommended that I see a chiropractor. I was surprised, since I thought "chiropractors only treat low back pain". I thought I would give it a try because I was desperate for relief so that I could continue to pitch. After a few visits, my shoulder pain began to resolve, and I was able to pitch without pain, or any medications. I was so impressed with the results, that I decided to become a chiropractor as well!
After graduating from the University of Western Ontario, I attended the National College of Chiropractic in Lombard, Illinois. Soon after receiving my Doctor of Chiropractic degree, I began working as an associate doctor at the current Celar Chiropractic location. When the main doctor decided to retire, I jumped at the opportunity to continue to work with my current patients and bought the practice in 2004.
Since then, I have strived to create a warm, friendly family practice that treats patients of all ages. I especially enjoy helping children and pregnant women. I love that we can offer a safe and effective option to those who do not want to be dependent on traditional medicine. In order to help children and the pre-natal patients even more, I received advanced training and became Certified from the Chiropractic Academy of Family Practice and the Council on Chiropractic Pediatrics (C.A.C.C.P.).
Besides being a certified pediatric chiropractor, I am certified in chiropractic care for pregnant women, including Webster Technique, which allows the baby to be in the best possible position for birth.
I have 2 beautiful daughters named Sienna and Leighton. Besides my family, my interests include running, working out, and eating out at the many great Chicago restaurants.
Now that you know a little about me, I look forward to meeting you and your family as well. Please feel free to contact us today!
