Every trip has come with the opportunity to experience a piece of the true essence of what we deliver (more) through chiropractic care with our hands and our heart. The stories are endless: an 8-year-old with a dislocated shoulder who can now use it again

Local chiropractor Dr. Jason Gerard will lead his 13th mission trip to the Dominican Republic on September 21, 2016. Dr. Gerard, who holds a Doctorate of Chiropractic and Bachelors of Science in Human Biology from Northwestern, serves with ChiroMission, a not-for-profit organization promoting health and wellness in Third World countries where resources are limited.
ChiroMission started in 2001 to help raise funds for food, shelter, clothing and the basic needs of the poor in the island countries, as well as to provide natural, chiropractic care for them in order to relieve their physical suffering. Since 2001, ChiroMission has brought chiropractic care to more than half a million people in the Dominican Republic, as well as tens of thousands in Haiti and St. Vincent. Funds raised, coupled with teams of volunteers lead by people like Dr. Gerard, have helped build orphanages and food-giving gardens in these countries. ChiroMission has also donated thousands of pounds of food and thousands of school supplies to the needy living in impoverished conditions.
As the President and Mission Leader of ChiroMission, Dr. Gerard has helped build an orphanage in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic, as well as provided chiropractic care on a dozen medical mission trips to various Caribbean islands.
“ChiroMission has forever changed my life and how I serve people every day,” he says. “Every trip has come with the opportunity to experience a piece of the true essence of what we deliver through chiropractic care with our hands and our heart. The stories are endless: an 8-year-old with a dislocated shoulder who can now use it again, the paraplegic who regained feeling in his hands after one adjustment, the surgeon with relieved daily headaches…”
