After living in Ohio for her entire life, Dr. Megan Jusich, D.C., moved to Chicagoland to pursue her dream of becoming a chiropractor. Helping her patients find that “a-ha” health moment drives her every day in practice and she is thrilled to serve as the chiropractic director of Chiro One Wellness Centers of Des Plaines.

Outside of her studies and school requirements, Dr. Megan spent a large amount of time working with a veteran chiropractor, gaining invaluable clinical experience. In addition to her National Chiropractic Board certifications, Dr. Megan is also certified to practice acupuncture. Devoted to her doctoral studies, Dr. Megan was the chief intern during her chiropractic internship, and during her residency at Chiro One, she had the honor of leading her peers as the chief resident. Inspired by her chiropractic peers and the incredible work they do, Dr. Megan has found the opportunity to lead through service to be very rewarding.
Empathetic and caring, Dr. Megan always knew she wanted to work in healthcare. As a volunteer at her hometown hospital during high school, Dr. Megan grew her lifelong passion for helping others lead healthier lives. During her experience, she learned how much she loved to be with patients and to help them along their way to better health.
