Hello, my name is Dr. Jason Van Skyhock and welcome to our office! If a friend has told you to come to me, then you have heard that I am passionate about helping people reach their ultimate health potential. When you step into our office, you will notice a difference. Good! Our goal is to create an experience that is unique to you and your family. In order to understand chiropractic and its importance to your family's health, I feel that it is necessary that you know who I am, where I come from and the events that have shaped me into the person and practitioner that I am today.
Since birth (an hour after being born), I have been under chiropractic care. You see, my father is a chiropractor. I was naïve to others having recurring health issues and how it affected, not just them, but everyone around them. When I was 14, we moved from Michigan to Ohio. I was the new kid in 10th grade trying to fit in with a passion for sports. I had experienced something I had never known existed. If you were not in the “in” crowd, you did not play, and I became full of resentment. I closed off the world and made decisions out of hate/survival instead of love/passion. I was unaware of how it affected everything I was going to do and everyone around me for the next twenty years. Worst of all, I was going to accept this as my life. Thankfully I was referred to a group of Chiropractors who gave me hope again. They are part of LOVE HAS NO COLOR and helping everyone that wants help. Through Chiropractic, I have found my vibrance and sense of self-worth again and I knew that I just had to offer that special something to others.
On several occasions parents have brought their kids in at wits end. One family that stuck out was a lady that walked through my door with her five year old son. One of her children had difficulties in school, making friends, and was labeled with ADHD. My heart sank; I had to meet this child and make a connection. The mother says to me, “My husband and I have been beside ourselves with stress and sleepless nights. We have been going to every Dr. with only temporary results. A friend finally told me to talk with you and how family oriented you are, especially with kids. My husband did not care what I did, he just wanted to ‘fix it’. A couple family members even strongly voiced their opinion against going to a chiropractor, but our son needs help. Can you help him?” I explained that there are no guarantees but that she could count on me to give 100% to Stephan each visit. After coming to the office for a few weeks, the mother reported that he was happier at home and the teacher noticed changes at school also.
Who was the hero? It was not me. For the real hero was the mom, to show such strength and courage is inspiring. She has so much courage driving her son to the office three times a week, never missing an appointment. She put full trust in me and the power of chiropractic. She did not become discouraged or allowed her friends/family to deter her decision to seek out my help.
Everyday my passion grows from meeting extraordinary families. I take a lot of pride in my patients and feel that they can count on me no matter what opportunities or struggles they are facing. Do not give up hope. Do not give up on yourself or settle for mediocre. Come in and let's talk!
I look forward to getting to know you and your family and welcoming you to mine!
