Dr. Jen Schommer, DC, CVSMT
Graduated with a bachelor’s degree in biology with a concentration in human biology and zoology from Minnesota State University, Mankato. She continued her education at Northwestern Health Sciences University of Bloomington and graduated with a Doctor of Chiropractic degree. Dr. Jen then enrolled at the Healing Oasis Wellness Center in Sturtevant, Wisconsin to pursue my two passions - and learn how to treat animals with chiropractic care. After intense training, I was certified in Veterinary Spinal Manipulation Therapy (CVSMT).
Dr. Jen resides in Vadnais Heights with her fiance, two step daughters and their dog, Ernie and cat, Bert. She loves to read, take walks with her family and is often very busy on the weekends with her extended family and bringing the girls on excursions around the cities.
Dr. Jen has worked with children her whole life and is passionate about treating kids and their families. Her goal is to help children start healthy and stay healthy into adulthood through chiropractic care. Dr. Jen loves treating whole families and helping them achieve and maintain excellent health through chiropractic care.
“The doctor of the future will give no medication, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet and in the cause and prevention of disease. ”

What is Chiropractic?
Doctors of Chiropractic medicine (D.C.s) adjust the spine with easy, manual thrusts to move the spinal vertebrae back to their normal positions. A chiropractor will sometimes also adjust the joints of the neck, arms and legs. Spinal adjustments may relieve a spectrum of ailments such as headaches, certain types of migraines, menstrual cramps, allergies, asthma, stomach disorders, spastic colon, and arm, hand, and leg pain that’s due to dysfunction of the neck or lower back. Some patients with asthma and emphysema turn to chiropractic care to release tension in the chest. Research is helping to determine if manipulation of the neck helps the ears drain properly, thus alleviating otitis media — the ear infection that plagues children.
What Happens During a Chiropractic Examination?
A chiropractor will take a medical history, conduct physical, neurological and orthopedic examinations. Chiropractic physicians spend a considerable amount of time assessing posture, examining the spine, testing reflexes, joint motion and muscle strength. X-rays and other diagnostic images are often used to locate vertebral dysfunction and to rule out disorders like tumors or fractures, which require the attention of other healthcare experts.
What Training Do Chiropractors Have?
Chiropractors are licensed in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. A rigorous course of study is necessary to receive a degree of Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.). All state licensing boards require two to four years of undergraduate education, and completion of a four-year chiropractic college course.
