Meet Dr. Jimmy Lopez of Universal Wellness Source in Roscoe Village
Today we’d like to introduce you to Dr. Jimmy Lopez.
Dr. Lopez, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
Originally from California. My sister was born with a bad heart and has had 9 open heart surgeries. As much as our family was around hospitals and doctors, it was a natural environment and easy choice to want to be the people that helped my sister. The people were amazing, but I realized the system was broken. As much as I am thankful for emergency medicine and the opportunity it has given our family, it does nothing to prevent or teach people to become more proactive with their health. Being an athlete, I was always drawn to professions, classes and people that could help me perform at my best. In high school, I suffered an injury in which I sought chiropractic services. Once I heard the story of Chiropractic, the principles of which it was founded, there was no other profession which made more sense to me when caring for the human body. From that moment on, I was grounded in and surrounded myself with lifestyle management and chiropractic professionals.
