Who We Are
Dr. Josh M. Zumstein founded The Back Safety and Wellness Consultants in 2011. The Back Safety and Wellness Consultants is dedicated to educating the public on preventing, reducing, and eliminating back and neck pain through the professionally endorsed book, Secrets to
Preventing Back and Neck Pain: 60 Ways to Protect Your Spine, spine stabilizing products and consulting services.
While working in a chiropractic clinic outside Chicago, Dr.Zumstein encountered countless patients, who asked him the same questions: why does my back hurt, how can I stop it from hurting, and how can I prevent it from hurting again? Dr. Zumstein realized that patients not only want to get well, they want to stay well. The health care industry treats injuries well, but doesn't always prevent and explain them well. Dr. Zumstein wanted to fill this void. After receiving the
unwitting inspiration from these patients, Dr. Zumstein formed The Back Safety and Wellness Consultants. Its goal: to teach people how to eliminate and prevent their back and neck pain. Dr. Zumstein began consulting for local firefighters and soon realized the greater demand for back and neck pain prevention.
Dr. Zumstein is a graduate of Marquette University and Logan College of Chiropractic. He is a doctor of chiropractic, owns a master's degree in sports rehab and science, and is certified in acupuncture and applied kinesiology. He has worked with and treated Division I collegiate and professional athletes and has spent endless hours researching his passion: eliminating back and neck pain. He has appeared on local affiliates for NBC, FOX, and National Public Radio to discuss back and neck pain prevention at home and work.

FACTS ABOUT CHIROPRACTORS
Chiropractors are licensed physicians in the State of Illinois.
Chiropractors must undergo 4 years of post-graduate schooling and a chiropractic residency before earning their doctorate.
Chiropractors undergo the same amount of classroom training as M.D.'s. A major difference in schooling is that while M.D.’s learn their pharmacology training, chiropractors learn their technique training.
Chiropractors are a drug-free, health profession; they do not use medications.
