Dr. ERIC NEPUTE

As Dr. Eric Nepute was growing up in the small town of Carlinville, Illinois, little did he know how the town's passion for football would shape his future. Dr. Eric was a natural athlete and football was king. He excelled at it, playing as an all-star for his high school team and eventually earning a football scholarship to Millikin University. Football wasn't his dream though; from childhood, Dr. Eric had dreamed of being a top surgeon. Until a shoulder injury led to a revelation.

When you don't know your options, you take your injury to a traditional doctor, and that's what Dr. Eric did with his injured shoulder. After the examinations were done, Dr. Eric was told, "We're sorry, but you can never play football again, and you'll probably never have full motion of the shoulder." So he retired his football career, finished his bachelor's degree, and might have simply lived the rest of his life with a handicap if he hadn't met a chiropractor who looked at his shoulder and told him, "We can fix this." That was music to Dr. Eric's ears, and once the chiropractor was able to put the shoulder into a state where it could heal itself, it became obvious that seeking answers only from traditional medicine had already limited Dr. Eric's possibilities. He had missed his chance at a football career (even if it had been limited to college stardom) but at least he would still be able to throw a football to his son. How many people get that second chance to live the lives they'd planned? How many are living with debilitating pain simply because traditional medicine doesn't have a cure?

After Dr. Eric's path was changed by that shoulder injury, he knew he wanted to make a real difference in people's lives. He committed himself to a career in Chiropractic Wellness Care and would go on to graduate from Logan College of Chiropractic with advanced studies in sports medicine, advanced nutrition, applied kinesiology, functional neurology, internal health, and anti-aging.

As Dr Eric says, "People judge their health on how they feel instead of how they function, and it's the biggest mistake a person can make." It is now Dr. Eric's mission to empower all people to no longer be a victim of their health or circumstances and instead learn how their body works and how to achieve a state of total wellness.

Dr. Eric has become a sought after speaker in the health and wellness community, speaking on topics ranging from stress management to how to live a pain free life. He has helped businesses both large and small save hundreds of thousands of dollars by assisting in their health and wellness programs. His unique ability to simplify complex health issues has brought Dr. Eric to the top of his field, not only as a clinician but also as an expert speaker. Dr. Eric's workshop programs have been called "educational, motivational, and inspirational" by Dr. Bob Hoffman, author of The New York Times best seller, Discover Wellness.
