Wentzville Chiropractic & Acupuncture Center

Dr. Jay Hauptman D.C.

​Dr. Hauptman believes chiropractic found him.  After earning his undergraduate degree many years ago in Colorado, he worked in project management as a means to raise a family alongside his wife Liz and two daughters, Gina and Heidi.  Throughout this time he and his family maintained a very active lifestyle that included triathlons, motorcycle racing, cycling, soccer, tennis, track and field.  It was when Gina, who as a competitive athlete suffering from knee pain for many years, became successfully treated by a chiropractor that he had his eyes opened to the power of chiropractic.  That is when the seed to help people the same way became planted in his heart.  Dr. Hauptman studied many techniques at Logan College of Chiropractic including Functional Movement Screening, Sports Rehabilitation, Applied Kinesiology, Soft Tissue Manipulation, Cox Flexion Distraction and Nutritional/Functional Medicine. He is thrilled to be a part of the Wentzville Chiropractic team and is excited to serve people with the powerful tool that is chiropractic care.
