GREENSBURG - Health Centered Spine and Wellness welcomes Dr. Jason Domenick to its growing Greensburg facility.
With the addition of Dr. Domenick, the office is now open for business Monday through Friday with expanded evening hours.
Dr. Domenick is a licensed chiropractor who graduated from National University of Health Sciences (NUHS). His alma mater is found in the greater Chicago area and is one of the premier schools for aspiring chiropractors as well as other health practitioners such as naturopathic physicians, acupuncturists, biomedical scientists, massage therapists, and practitioners of Oriental medicine. While attending NUHS, Dr. Domenick worked as the microbiology fellow and enjoyed serving both the underprivileged in downtown Chicago and the diverse population of Chicago’s west suburbs. He also had special interest in acupuncture and nutritional therapies and sought post-graduate training in both. He is currently certified to practice chiropractic and acupuncture in Ohio and Indiana.
As an elite athlete in his teenage years he had the opportunity to be coached by and play for some of the best clubs and coaches in soccer. He’s played for the likes of East-West Busch soccer club (sponsored by Anheuser-Busch, Pan-Am, and Greyhound) which did get to represent the USA during the Olympic boycott years and was coached by Bora Milutinovic (USA national coach).
Dr. Domenick feels growing up in the ethnically diverse northeastern Ohio area was a blessing for his soccer development. He played with and against USA national team players and later coached by their side. Dr. Domenick continues to maintain a coaching affiliation with the Olympic Development Program in the United States. His professional league play includes the following; USISL, CISL, and training with the Columbus Crew of the MLS.
After leaving Chicago (or “Chi-town” as he calls it), Dr. Domenick moved to his place of birth in the greater Pittsburgh, Penn. area to spend time with his extended family and to start practicing in his field. He later moved slightly west, just across the Ohio border, to the town he had spent most of his youth (Austintown). After practicing in Austintown for some time, Dr. Domenick was drawn back to the Indianapolis area where he’d earned his bachelor’s degree in biology and played NCAA Division 1 soccer for Butler University.
Dr. Domenick’s affinity for athletics has always been a driving force in his personal and professional development. The game of soccer specifically has been a special blessing to him and has brought him many wonderful experiences, opportunities, and learning lessons.
Dr. Domenick believes his exposure to different cultures (much due to soccer) has been paramount in his development. Interestingly, a soccer injury is what first introduced him to the medicinal/therapeutic value of chiropractic care.
Having been hurt during a regional tryout for the United States national program, Dr. Domenick was taken to an osteopathic physician who recommended treatment via a chiropractor. Not only was the treatment an instant success but Dr. Domenick was able to go back to his training and advanced to his next tryout level. The seed for becoming a chiropractor was planted.
Back in Chi-Town, during breaks from his duties as a student and fellow, Dr. Domenick found himself maintaining his interest in athletics by participating in well-known running events, working as a certified personal trainer/coach, and staying involved with the game of soccer. Dr. Domenick enjoyed training for and running both the Soldier Field 10 Mile and the Nike 10 Mile races and looks forward to running his first Indianapolis Mini-Marathon this spring on May 3.
He also played for the soccer team at NUHS and eventually developed a relationship with the creators of the “Chicago World Cup” soccer program. Not only did this relationship help provide his fellow students at NUHS with clinical experience, it helped provide the soccer players and staff members of the tournament with much needed care.
He maintains affiliation with the Carmel United Soccer Club (affiliated with the Chicago Fire of the MLS) on the north side of Indianapolis as a coach, but looks forward to becoming involved in the soccer community in the Greensburg and Decatur County areas.
Dr. Domenick has coached at various levels starting with 4-18 year old recreational players/teams, to elite clubs with roughly the same age brackets, to the NCAA Division 1 college game.
As a chiropractor, he now hopes to serve the Greensburg and surrounding areas remaining committed to upholding a patient-oriented environment where patients are empowered to be actively involved in their treatment decisions and activities.
Dr. Domenick realizes that not everyone is a professional athlete or maybe not even a “weekend-warrior,” but still believes that everyone deserves the access to the high quality therapies elite athletes receive; chiropractic therapy being just one of them.
Appointments with Dr. Jason Domenick at Health Center Spine and Wellness can be made by calling 812-663-7640. The office is located at 905 Keegan’s Way Suite #7, near the Decatur County Family YMCA.
