Chiropractor Jerome Tyjeski, D.C.
Jerome Tyjeski was born and raised in Wisconsin Rapids, WI. When he was just 4 years old, his mom and dad took him to a chiropractor for his first chiropractic adjustment to relieve ear infection symptoms.
From that time on Chiropractic became Jerome's chosen system of health care. Through elementary, junior high and high school, Jerome participated in music and sports. His favorite sport was soccer, where he made all conference, and chiropractic care kept him in the game. Jerome went on to attend UW-Steven’s Point and UW-LaCrosse where he attained the undergraduate credits necessary to pursue his life long dream of Chiropractic college.
Logan University (formerly Logan College of Chiropractic) in St. Louis, Missouri, was the school where Jerome chose to continue his education. The school was founded on low force chiropractic techniques, and their philosophy of life long, drug free health fit well with Jerome's beliefs. During that time he married his college sweetheart, Joanne (Graper). Upon completing his degree of Doctor of Chiropractic, he returned to Wisconsin Rapids to join Fenander Chiropractic.
After 3 years, he decided to relocate to his wife’s home town, Beaver Dam, WI and start his own business. Park Avenue Chiropractic opened in 1991. In 2001, Tyjeskis built a new handicapped accessible office at 119 E. Mackie Street and renamed the business Tyjeski Family Chiropractic.
Dr. Jerome and Joanne have 4 adult children, Josh, Jeni, Jordan and Jonah. He remains passionate about health and wellness. He has coached his kids through many years of soccer, trap, and powerlifting. He can often be found hunting, biking, or working out with kettle bells and other cross fit methods. Jerome also believes in giving back to the community. He is a member of the Kiwanis Club, and Trinity United Methodist Church. He has professional memberships in the Chiropractic Society of Wisconsin as well as Logan College Alumni Association. He is also a certified IQ Impulse practitioner.
Each year Dr. Jerome seeks out opportunities to learn the best new information in chiropractic health and nutrition.
Chiropractor Stephanie Tyjeski, D.C.
Dr. Stephanie Tyjeski grew up in Stevens Point, WI where she volunteered her time at the humane society and vacation bible school for kids with special needs. She was a graduate of Stevens Point Area Senior High class of 2010 and then went on to attend UW-Stevens Point. She finished her undergraduate degree in Human Biology while beginning the Doctorate of Chiropractic program at Logan College of Chiropractic. She graduated from Logan College in St. Louis, MO on December 17th, 2016. While attending Logan, Dr. Stephanie became advanced proficiency rated in activator technique, a low force adjusting technique, and is certified as a Digestive Health Professional. She was also an intern in the VisceroSomatic Center, an internal health clinic at Logan. Through healthy eating and nutritional supplements, she was able to help her patients with complaints ranging from high blood pressure to edema in the legs to acid reflux. She is currently working on her Masters in Nutrition and Human Performance through Logan to increase her knowledge of healing the body through natural remedies instead of through the use of medication and the side effects associated with them.
Dr. Stephanie also took an interest in treating pregnant women and children at Logan and was part of the Pediatric Club. There are many changes that occur in a woman’s body as she goes through pregnancy including relaxation of the pelvic joints and surrounding musculature which can be assisted through chiropractic adjustments in a safe and effective way. She is also able to use her knowledge of healthy eating to help treat some of the added complaints of pregnancy, such as heartburn and swollen ankles. Children can also benefit from chiropractic care by removing stress on the nervous system which could be due to the birth process, falling when learning how to walk, and the overall general growth of their spine. The stress on the nervous system may show up in different ways in children such as difficulty with nursing, a colicky baby, and trouble with potty training. Dr. Stephanie uses low force chiropractic which is a gentle technique to remove the interference off of the nervous system by adjusting the spine.
In her free time, Dr. Stephanie likes to work-out at the YMCA, sing in her choir and play handbells at church, and to visit the public library. She enjoys playing with her two dogs, Anna and Sparky, as well as her two sugar gliders. She is looking forward to the summertime when she and her husband, Dr. Josh, can visit the beautiful Wisconsin state parks for some hiking and picnic lunches.
