He routinely saw a chiropractor at a young age as a part of being raised in a healthy family environment. As a child he did not fully understand the power of chiropractic but simply knew he liked how he felt after being adjusted and knew he wanted to be around chiropractic forever. Dr. Jacob was a healthy child. He did not experience many of the childhood health issues such as ear infections or earaches, upper respiratory infections, and other common childhood illnesses. He did not receive the normal routine vaccinations. The only prescription medication he has ever taken was when he was covered head to toe in poison ivy as a child. Dr. Jacob has always known health to be a natural expression of life. This is why he started studying human function as a teenager. His concept of the innate healing ability of the body made sense to Dr. Jacob at a young age so the decision to be a chiropractor was an obvious next step for him. He has also completed a post graduate certification through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. This intensive program included rigorous classroom work, extensive testing, and practice based research projects. The entire program was focused on the care of the pediatric and prenatal clients so Dr. Jacob continues to be one of the best pediatric, prenatal, and family chiropractors in the Lakewood and Denver area.
He obtained a Bachelor of Science, with honors, in Exercise Science from the University of Illinois. Immediately following his undergraduate studies, he attended Palmer College of Chiropractic, where he graduated Magna Cum Laude. He has completed a post graduate certification as a Certified Chiropractic Extremity Practitioner, CCEP. This specialization focuses on helping people with issues of the jaw, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees, ankles and feet. He also continues to take ongoing education on nutrition, exercise, and delivering the best possible care to clients.
Dr. Jacob loves practicing as a chiropractor in Lakewood and helping people from newborns to active adults. As an active participant in the Colorado lifestyle he understands firsthand how important chiropractic care is for the active Colorado resident. Dr. Jacob meets people where they are related to their health goals. Some people are looking to regain their health by first getting out of pain. Some are looking to recover from a sports or weekend warrior injury. Others need his help in recovering from injuries related to an auto accident. Some simply just want to be able to live the typical active Colorado lifestyle as long as possible. Whatever your goals, Dr. Jacob can help you reach them and express better health.
In addition to his passion for chiropractic family wellness, Dr. Jacob enjoys downhill skiing, soccer, fishing, hiking and all those things associated with the great outdoors of Colorado!
Dr. Jacob and Dr. Maura live in Lakewood, CO, with their son.
