Chicago native, Dr. Ziad Zayed, doctor of chiropractic (D.C), now enjoys living in the northwest suburbs. He’s thrilled to be serving as the chiropractic director of Chiro One Wellness Center of Orland Hills.
Dr. Ziad received his bachelor’s degree in biomedical science and his doctorate of chiropractic from National University of Health Sciences. While at National, Dr. Ziad was involved in the Motion Palpation Club. He also served as a research assistant on a clinical study, as well as participated in a randomized controlled pilot study. Dr. Ziad is also certified in acupuncture and the kinesiology technique, RockTape.
Devoted to helping others improve their health and quality of life, Dr. Ziad decided to become a chiropractor after losing his father at only seventeen years old. His father suffered a massive heart attack due to a prescription drug for his rheumatoid arthritis. This drug, while approved by the FDA, did not have the properly labeling to warn patients of its potentially deadly side effects. After dealing with this painful loss, Dr. Ziad vowed to help people heal naturally and avoid unnecessary prescription medications.
For Dr. Ziad, the best part about being a chiropractor is turning a “non-believer” into a “believer.” Many times patients choose chiropractic as a last resort; they’ve been to many different doctors and haven’t found any relief from their pain. Dr. Ziad loves the moment when patients finally find pain relief with chiropractic treatment . He wants to assure all his patients that it is possible to live a higher quality of life.
In his free time, Dr. Ziad spends a lot of time with his family, especially his godchildren. He can often be found at the gym, keeping in top shape, and loves playing the piano, football and basketball. Dr. Ziad is also trained in martial arts and enjoys meditating.
Dr. Ziad is inspired by the Jimmy Dean quote, "I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination." It reminds him to continually strive for goals he’s set, and to not let anything deter him. Dr. Ziad looks forward to welcoming you to Chiro One Wellness Center of Orland Hills.
