Chiropractor Evanston IL Doctor Anthony Breitbach

Chiropractor

Anthony Breitbach D.C.

"It’s my mission to be able to help as many people as I can get out of pain quickly and reach their full health potential through chiropractic care."

At 7 feet tall, Dr. Tony had a long way to go to pick things up off of the floor in college and one day while bending over he felt something pop in his back. For three straight weeks, the pain became more severe, and sudden onset of heartburn made his condition worse. The pills that the medical doctor prescribed only helped for a few hours.

Dr. Tony had a friend going to chiropractic school and he convinced him to give a different doctor a try. This new doctor, a chiropractor, did an examination, took some X-rays and then adjusted Dr. Tony’s spine. “The adjustment felt great. I got relief and could actually walk around normally again! My back got better, and my heartburn also went away.”

Becoming a Natural Health Expert

Impressed with his quick results and the other seemingly miracles seen at the chiropractor’s office, Dr. Tony decided to enter the health field. The medical doctors he shadowed were caught up in managed care and mostly just prescribed medications to cover up symptoms. “The chiropractor was helping people. His patients were happy, and his office had an incredible energy.”

The decision to become a chiropractor was made. Dr. Tony began his chiropractic education at Palmer College of Chiropractic. The courses he took there included anatomy and human physiology, X-ray, diagnosis, chiropractic adjusting techniques and patient care at the Palmer College Public Clinic.

Providing Outstanding Care

“I want to help people without the use of drugs and surgery, the two usual options within the medical profession. Chiropractic care can offer conservative solutions for neuromusculoskeletal conditions.”

Dr. Tony is certified in

  • Full body Active Release Techniques®
  • The McKenzie Method®
  • Dry needling

In his spare time, he enjoys being active and staying fit, spending time outdoors, and bicycling.

Jerry Moncada D.C.

I graduated from John R. Mott High School in a small town in northeast Iowa called Postville, Iowa. I attended the University of Iowa where I graduated with my Bachelor of Science in Health and Human Physiology (Exercise Science). Soon after graduation, I got certified in Exercise Physiology through ACSM where I worked In cardiac/pulmonary rehab and as a personal trainer. 

I did this for over a year before starting at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa.

Early Years and Chiropractic

During my years in high school and in college, I was plagued with lower back and shoulder injuries that would stop me from exercising and playing sports. Chiropractic was the only thing that gave me relief and made me feel back to normal. This made me want to learn more so
that I could share this knowledge with the rest of the world.

Outside of the Clinic

Outside of the clinic, I enjoy exercising, playing my guitars, spending time outside with my dog, and watching Hawkeye football.
