“It has been my experience that those who enter the chiropractic profession do so because of the life-changing impact that chiropractic has had on their own health,” states Dr. Ronald Berger. “That has certainly been the case for me as well, and why I’m so passionate about delivering that same experience for others.”
I always knew I wanted to enter a healthcare field, so I started seeing a chiropractor in college to learn more about the profession and explore my options. I did not have any significant pain issues, so my expectations were more to satisfy my curiosity. But then amazing things started to happen. My lifelong allergies began to disappear. My vertigo became almost non-existent. I slept better, had more energy, and my grades improved because I had better focus.
I learned that these things were made possible because chiropractic allows for a more normal nervous system function, which in turn allows for the body to function the way it was meant to. It really bothered me that no one had ever explained this to me before, and that there’s a large segment of the population that is needlessly suffering because they don’t have the information they need to pursue better health. My mission as a chiropractor is to help and educate the community at large to achieve their maximum human potential so that they can continue to do the things they love.
After his life-changing experience with chiropractic, Dr. Berger changed majors to graduate with a degree in Biology and a minor in Chemistry at Illinois State University.
From there, Dr. Berger was accepted into Palmer Chiropractic College, the fountainhead of the profession. He graduated in 2009, taking interests in kinesiology and muscle function, as well as lab-based nutrition.

Dr. Berger has helped thousands of patients while being in practice for the past 13 years. In June 2022, he joined the staff of Dr. Eric Miller at Chiro-Med Health & Wellness Center. “I was very impressed by the level of patient satisfaction that I saw, as well as the compassion and dedication of the staff and the commitment to improving the lives of every patient,” says Dr. Berger, of his decision to join Chiro-Med. “I’m excited to work with the multitude of therapies and treatments available to ensure satisfactory outcomes for patients as well as educate them to ensure long-term success.”
Outside the office
Dr. Berger grew up in Mokena and currently resides in New Lenox with his wife, Danielle and his twin toddlers, Isla and Reese. When not in the office you can generally find him exploring one of the many great local trails. “It was important to me that I stay close to my roots, so joining the Chiro-Med staff was an easy decision as it allowed me to continue to serve this community I love so much. I would like to invite you and your family to see reach out to see how we might be a good fit to help you reach your healthcare goals. I look forward to meeting you.”
