Dr. Veerman was inspired to be a chiropractor after a remarkable recovery from a sports injury that nearly took his leg. While playing soccer in 2003, he began to suffer from chronic ankle sprains and shin splints, which led to a severe lower leg cramp that would not subside. Dr. Veerman ended up in the emergency room where he was misdiagnosed multiple days in a row with a muscle spasm. During his third visit to the ER, Dr. Veerman was rushed from the hospital directly to an orthopedic surgeon, who correctly diagnosed him with compartment syndrome (a rare limb- and life-threatening condition which occurs when there is not a sufficient amount of blood to supply the muscles and nerves with oxygen and nutrients).
Because the raised pressure and lack of blood supply within the compartment of his leg was leading to nerve damage, Dr. Veerman was at risk of losing his leg. After an extensive surgery, where he was told he would not be able to run or play soccer again, Dr. Veerman began his year-long rehabilitation cycle. With the help of his dedicated physical therapist, Dr. Veerman not only kept his leg, but continues to enjoy running and playing his favorite sport, soccer.
This experience of overcoming the odds through the help and dedication of his orthopedic surgeon and physical therapist made Dr. Veerman realize his calling – to help people not only recover from injuries, but to help others live their best and most healthy life.
He went on to attend the National University of Health Sciences, where he attained his doctoral degree in chiropractic medicine, and opened MVP Chiropractic’s first location in New Lenox in July of 2010. MVP Chiropractic expanded with a second location in the Chicago Loop in 2013, and now is proud to offer a third location in River North.
