Meet Dr. Jokerst
Dr. Jokerst is originally from St. Louis, MO where he attended Logan University, earning his Bachelors in the Science of Human Biology and then Doctor of Chiropractic in 1999. Upon graduating he moved to Jefferson City, MO where he held a private practice while training under graduates of the Spine Research Institute of San Diego, a whiplash injury, spinal injury, and brain stem injury research group. In 2004, Dr. Jokerst moved to Columbia, SC where he started a family practice specializing in personal injury.
His Unique Approach
Dr. Jokerst believes in thorough patient-centered care, taking time to accurately diagnose and treat his patients, thereby achieving quicker and longer lasting results. It is this philosophy that earned him the “Most Trusted Chiropractor” award in Irmo, SC. An avid health enthusiast, Dr. Jokerst encourages his patients to be proactive in their care, eating right and exercising as part of their healing process. It is this combined philosophy that has allowed his practice to nearly double in size every year. Dr. Jokerst currently employs four Chiropractors, a Nurse Practitioner, and two therapists who all share his philosophy and aid in patient care.
A Passion for Knowledge
With a love for learning, Dr. Jokerst continued his education by becoming a Certified Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner in 2013, then a Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner in 2016. Dr. Jokerst is now eligible to sit for the Chiropractic Board of Clinical Nutrition exam which he will be completing in 2019, earning him a Diplomate in Clinical Nutrition.
Dr. Jokerst is also the Secretary of the Board of Directors for a non-profit organization named Jacoby’s Shield, whose goal is to help bring healing to families that have lost a child. Jacoby’s Shield was named after a patient and close family friend of Dr. Jokerst’s, a three-year-old boy who was taken too early after a tragic accident.
In 2017, Dr. Jokerst founded Immune Logic®, a supplement company specializing in Beta 1,3D Glucan. Using the purest form of Beta Glucan on the market, lab tested at 93% purity, Glucan 300© is a high potency immune booster capable of doubling the amount of active white blood cells in the body, thereby allowing the body to fight infection and foreign pathogens at twice the normal rate.
On a Personal Note…
Father of five wonderful children, Dr. Jokerst can be found most days spending time with his kids. He is an avid outdoorsman and hunter and loves nothing more than spending the day hiking and practicing wilderness survival with his kids.
