Dr. Shemansky has accumulated a wealth of diverse work experiences and accomplishments throughout his life. His remarkable journey originated in Vietnam, where he was the youngest of ten children. His parents owned a local jewelry store, and he grew up in a region that is known for its fertile land and Dragon fruit production. His life took a significant turn after the Vietnam war when he was adopted at the age of 7. This marked the beginning of his life in Pekin, Illinois. Both of his adoptive parents were teachers, and his father has been coaching football at the local high school for 40 plus years.
At the age of 16, a shoulder injury sustained while playing sports led him to visit a local chiropractor. Experiencing the remarkable effects of chiropractic care firsthand was the driving force behind his passion and pursuit of the field. After receiving his Bachelor of Science at the College of Saint Francis in Joliet, Illinois, he then attended Palmer College of Chiropractic. Located in Davenport, Iowa, it’s the nation's premier institution and is renowned for producing some of the best chiropractors in the nation. Palmer is also the birthplace of Chiropractic. Dr. Shemansky honed his skills and knowledge under the tutelage of field experts, research and focused heavily on sports injuries, posture restoration, and anti-aging, along with evidence-based approaches to vitamins and supplementation.
In addition to his expert training and education in the chiropractic profession, Dr. Shemansky also had a remarkable journey as a powerlifting world record holder during his teenage years. He is still training hard and is a firm believer that age should not limit or define your capabilities in and out of the gym. His personal experience in sports and powerlifting instilled in him invaluable qualities like patience, dedication, and a strong work ethic; all of which he carries with him to this day in his chiropractic practice.
Outside his profession, Dr. Shemansky’s passions extend to spending quality time with his wife Amber, and son Preston. Dr. Shemansky loves to cook for his family and friends and is known for his honey glazed Chilean sea bass. He enjoys spending time on the water, exploring the beauty and abundance of the “Paradise Coast” region.
