Meet Dr. Jamey Krueger
Originally hailing from Milwaukee, WI, but now calling Clatonia, NE his home, Dr. Jamey Krueger is the lead physician at Lincoln, Nebraska’s premier chiropractic office, Chiropractic FIRST.
Every day I hear testimonials from patients and parents explaining how chiropractic wellness care has changed their life, and the immeasurable impact it has had on their entire family. Every day the results we get with chiropractic amaze even me, and I make it my mission as a chiropractor in Lincoln to show up every day dedicated to working my tail off so as many families as possible get that same opportunity to live life the way we do!
Sickest Kid on Earth
Growing up, I wasn’t what one would call a “healthy” child. I had numerous rounds of antibiotics, steroids, asthma medications, allergy shots, and nothing worked. I was hospitalized and almost died numerous times. Later on in childhood, I became mentally unstable and had to see a psychiatrist in third grade (luckily my mom didn’t put me on any meds). I was very hyperactive as a child and the only thing that calmed me down was playing Zelda on Nintendo. I tried taking my life on more than one occasion, luckily God protected me and none of those worked. I generally missed more school then I attended. Overcoming these odds, I graduated high school in the top 3% of my class.
One of my goals as a child was to find a cure for allergies (love dogs but was always allergic to them) and asthma. I have two dogs now and rarely have any allergy issues, and if I do, it’s from poor food choices. I always wanted to be a doctor. While on vacation in Florida, my grandfather had a stroke and I remember feeling so helpless, that I knew I had the knowledge in me to help, but I couldn’t do anything. Luckily, advanced CCWP training ensures that will NEVER happen to me or anyone who attends the workshops and follows the advice.
A lifelong curiosity with health and wellness lead Dr. Krueger to pursue a career in Medicine at the University of Wisconsin – Madison. But then, something happened that changed his life forever. While lifting weights in college, Dr. Jamey heard a “pop” and a lightning bolt sprinted from his low back all the way down to his foot. He rushed home, took a hot shower, and laid down on his bed. Two hours later, the pain was so intense he couldn’t even get out of his bed or roll over. What happened next
changed his life forever!
Dr. Krueger managed to get himself to a chiropractor and after his first adjustment started being able to think clearer, his focus was fine tuned, allergies improved, breathing improved, sleeping improved, and he wasn’t sick anymore. His headaches & back pain went away too, but it was the other things that had the most noticeable impact on his life.
Chiropractic Education & Career
Dr. Jamey chose the oldest and most prestigious chiropractic school, Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA, and knew instantly he made the right choice. Here he meets the love of his life, is selected to go on a mission trip to Morocco, and graduates with honors. He also took extra training to become a certified wellness lifestyle practitioner (CCWP) which equipped him to handle the most difficult cases and teach individuals how to never develop cancer, heart disease, diabetes, etc, and if they have them, how to reverse them.
He began practicing in his hometown near Milwaukee for a few years with great success, even earning the nickname “Doogie” from staff members. Something just wasn’t right, though, so he took his family and moved back to his wife’s hometown to raise their child right. He opened Chiropractic FIRST in Lincoln, Nebraska to inspire others to join his quest in maintaining health naturally.
With a burning desire to help others and to improve in himself, he regularly took more than the required hours in continuing education to learn more about the profession he cares so deeply for.
Dr. Jamey is knowledgeable in many rehabilitative techniques, including the highly regarded techniques of CBP, Pettibon, and Clear Institute Scoliosis correction. He is well versed and experienced in dealing with athletes, the elderly, infants and children, as well as expecting mothers and has his Nutritional Counseling Certificate through the WCA.
Depending on the patient’s condition and desire for care, various care options are presented from which the patient can select the plan that will best meet his/her goals. Dr. Jamey strives to care for each practice member as if they are a member of his own personal family.
Our Patients & Their Chiropractic Care
80% of all disease in our country are chronic illnesses that are the direct result of poor lifestyle choices we make everyday. One of the main goals at our Lincoln chiropractic office is to ID what those lifestyle choices are and change them, to ensure a healthy, happy, cancer/diabetes/heart disease free life. I am trying to establish a more effective model of health care in this office than the one that is currently bankrupting our country and keeping us all sick.
Key values in establishing patient’s care is what is in the best interest of the patient. They are always in control of their health. We frequently hear once you go to a chiropractor, you have to go forever. We strive to EDUCATE our patients as best they possibly can so they can choose to make the best decision for their health.
We want that health care to be affordable and fair, not cost an arm and a leg
Joyfully, one of the most common comments parents make is that I’m the only doctor their kids like going to and they can’t wait to come see!
Patients who respond best to care are the ones who are open minded, do what I tell them to do and stop doing what I tell them to stop. If they are active in their care and come to our workshops then they will get the best results.
The most satisfying thing I enjoy are taking care of the miracle cases, people written off by the medical system that come here and get results from our unique approach to health care. We’ve had practice members who have lowered their blood pressure, reversed type II diabetes, gotten off of sleep apnea machines, eliminated fibromyalgia/MS symptoms and beaten cancer. All of this was achieved through specific chiropractic adjustments, targeted nutrition, detoxification, mindset coaching, and streamlined fitness.
The greatest accomplishment God blessed me in facilitating was assisting two former employees in conceiving children. Both were told they were never going to have kids in their life, one was supposed to have a hysterectomy which we saved her from having to have, and the other had been in menopause since she was 16. She was “reproductively shut down” and told she’d never have kids. Through our inspired health care, both were able to have a child (see pic and video).
I met my wife Jenni at school. It took me 8 months to get her to go out with me. On our first date I told her I was going to marry her and 9 months later we were married on the beach in Hawaii, and each day has been better ever since then. We have two children, Lylah (3 years) Quinn (6 months). Both kids suffer from being abnormally healthy, never been vaccinated, no ear infections and only a couple of minor colds. It’s crazy the amount of comments I get about how happy they are. The only thing infectious about them are their laughs. I am eager to share the secrets of my family’s success with others.
In my personal time, I honestly like to research nutrition and fitness. I want to discover the truth about why some people are healthy, others are not. I also enjoy the packers, golfing, cooking, yoga, and quiet time with God. Badger at heart but the Huskers are growing on me. My favorite hobby by far though is spending quality time with my family. My daughters amaze me more and more everyday, and I feel so blessed being able to spend a great deal of time with them. My family and I attend Trinity United Methodist Church right here in Lincoln.
Dr. Krueger’s Health Habits
“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” —Aristotle
I take habits very seriously. Without them, you’ll wake up one day, 20 years have gone by, and you’ve neglected your health. I have numerous habits. I get adjusted a minimum of 1x/week. My nervous system runs the body I live in. In order for me to be at my best, I need it to be working at its best.
I believe fitness needs to be functional, or involving the different energy systems your body possesses, as well as improving usable strength. I used to be able to bench over 300 pounds, but I’d be lucky to do 10 pushups. I want fitness to benefit and enhance my life. I am a huge fan of crossfit, Athlean-X, burst training, and primal fitness. I want to not only be strong my whole life but mobile as well. Daily stretching and 1x/week yoga helps to maintain this. Fitness should be fun as well, not a chore. Pick something you enjoy doing…and do it.
99% of the cells in your body are replaced every 6 months. They are created out of what you put into your body, because of this, I’ve researched nutrition extensively and am developing a true human nutrition program based on physiology and biochemistry rather than clever marketing.
That’s enough about me. Let’s help you replace “I wonder if chiropractic can help me” with “I wish I would have known sooner.” Things that are ‘medically impossible’ happen here all the time. Contact our office today! Imagine what you’ll do with your new found health.
