Dr. Pranav Vyas, DC FIAMA, is a licensed chiropractor, acupuncturist, and functional medicine expert serving the Lake Zurich community and has been helping people recover their health in Lake Zurich, IL for over 15 years. As a experienced practitioner, Dr. Vyas is committed to bringing health and wellness to his patients through lifestyle changes.
Dr. Vyas uses a 'whole person approach'. This approach to wellness means looking for underlying causes of any disturbance or disruption (which may or may not be causing symptoms at the time) and make whatever interventions and lifestyle adjustments that would optimize the conditions for normal function. Dr. Vyas believes that for optimal wellness, the entire body, not just it's symptoms, should be considered and treated. Using this unique approach, Dr. Vyas is able to help you to accelerate and/or maintain your journey to optimal health. At NuWave Wellness Center, the belief of getting to the root cause is the foundation of the programs offered, and a holistic mind and body approach are embraced when creating wellness plans with the patient.
Dr. Vyas' spends his free time, when he's not with his wife and middle-school aged twins, doing continuing education and research, always deepening his knowledge to bring the most up-to-date information to his patients.
