Dr. Jake Sehnert
Dr. Jake Sehnert is a native to the North County area. He grew up in Ferguson,MO and attended high school at St. Thomas Aquinas Mercy. He then went to Southeast Missouri State University and majored in biology while playing on the SEMO hockey team. After an injury to his hip he was introduced to chiropractic and discovered a new passion.
After graduation he attended Logan College of Chiropractic and graduated with his Doctorate of Chiropractic degree in 2006. Upon graduation Dr. Sehnert has completed many hours of continuing education in order to keep current with latest and greatest technology and research in chiropractic. “I want nothing but the best for my patients.”
Dr. Sehnert’s first job was as an associate at The Pain Management Center of O’Fallon. In which he worked closely with other medical disciplines. After two years he opened his own private practice in Warrenton, MO then merged with Physical Medicine Group in 2010. Physical Medicine Group was a medical office that specialized in pain management, chiropractic, weight-loss, spinal decompression and trigger point injections.
In 2012 he joined The Chiropractic Wellness Connection because he wanted to focus, in his opinion the most important form of natural health care, chiropractic.
