Dr. Danielle Stanczak
Dr. Danielle Stanczak is a New Berlin native and earned her undergraduate degree from St. Norbert College in De Pere, WI. She then went on to graduate from the prestigious National University of Health Sciences in Lombard, IL. While in chiropractic college she continued her education by taking seminars on Fascial Movement Taping: Rock Tape, McKenzie Method lumbar spine rehabilitation exercises, Webster technique for pregnant patients and whiplash treatment.
Dancing into Chiropractic
Dr. Stanczak was introduced to chiropractic at the age of 6 when doctors questioned if her brother had scoliosis while her parents were receiving care for low back pain. With chiropractic care, her brother was never questioned again and her parents were able to manage their low back pain. Later in life low back pain and a shoulder injury while dancing led her to decide on chiropractic as her profession. As a young athlete she knows what it’s like to be expected to perform while in pain. With care she was able to dance as a Radio Disney Dancer with Chubby Checker, Aaron Carter and Christy Carlson Romano without any pain. She would like to help other athletes have the same results with chiropractic care, and to achieve their personal best.-->
Outside the OfficeDr. Stanczak still enjoys Zumba, Pilates and ballroom dancing. She is passionate about helping patients of all ages, especially challenging and difficult cases. Nothing is more exciting than helping a patient become pain free and help them to achieve their goals, however big or small. She is excited to be back in Wisconsin in a philanthropic minded practice that continues to give back to the community.

Patty - Chiropractic Technician
Patty is a Chiropractic Technician who graduated with honors from Moraine Park Technical College. Among her responsibilities are: taking x-rays, assisting patients with stretching and strengthening in our re-hab department, performing patient therapies and setting patients up on spinal decompression therapy. She assists our doctors with whatever they may need. Patty strives to make sure patients are comfortable and is attentive to their needs. Patient education is important to her. Prior to coming to this clinic, Patty started to have severe pain in her left knee when she ran. It got to the point where she would limp home. At that time, she did not know anything about chiropractic so she went a different route to seek relief. Needless knee surgery was performed and afterward she was told they didn't know what was wrong with her. She saw a chiropractor and learned that her problems were coming from her pelvis being rotated. She has been under chiropractic care ever since and has never felt that pain again. Ever! She continues to do the things she loves to do without the pain.
