"I have been to other chiropractors and physical therapists before, but you are very different from them. How would you describe what you do?"
This is a common question for Dr. Ideus. The answer is in his story. Before entering chiropractic school Dr. Ideus gained experience in health care from studying athletic training and exercise science at Nebraska Wesleyan University while working as a trainer in the NWU athletic department and as a physical therapy tech. A severe back injury during his senior year of basketball at NWU led Dr. Ideus to seek chiropractic care, which eventually led to his decision to attend chiropractic school. During doctorate school, Dr. Ideus explored far beyond the typical chiropractic education by seeking out information from a number of additional medical sources including neurology, physical therapy, orthopedics and strength and conditioning. Through this variety of education, continued learning and teaching, Dr. Ideus has created a truly unique program based on each patient’s unique findings and needs without bias or restricted perspective from one narrow type of therapy. Most treatments consist of components of chiropractic, physical therapy and soft tissue work.
"I learned growing up that to be successful you have to be willing to get out of your comfort zone, and that is why I constantly continue to learn in order to give my patient's the best possible care that exists. If I can't help you, I will help guide you to someone who can. Patients who know me know that I will work as hard as humanly possible to help them out and truly care about their well being"
Dr. Ideus is PASSIONATE about learning and offering the best service possible to his patients, which is why his goal is to be an expert. He achieves this by surrounding himself with other experts in conservative health care, studying current research, reading textbooks and attending continuing education courses around the world.
Dr. Ideus is an International Lead Instructor for Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS). DNS is the leading rehab philosophy in the world, making it a highly sought-after educational track that reaches across the globe with courses offered worldwide. Dr. Ideus is one of very few people who have been asked to be in a teaching role due to his dedication and performance. In this role, Dr. Ideus travels across the United States and the world teaching courses to chiropractors, physical therapists, personal trainers and strength and conditioning coaches.
"It is my goal that after meeting me you feel that someone has REALLY listened to you, understands your situation and sincerely cares about helping you achieve your goals in the most effective way possible."
Dr. Ideus started into this profession with a special interest in conservative care of the spine which is still the case, but many have heard Dr. Ideus say that if you are truly a spine expert you also have to be an expert in function of the upper and lower extremity, the jaw and have an appreciation for visceral and systemic diagnosis as well. Therefore, Dr. Ideus works on dysfunctions of not only spine, but also the extremities, jaw, and when needed he orders and assesses lab work.
