Meet Dr. Jacob

Dr. Jacob Plasker

Functional Neurologist

Dr. Jacob is a board certified functional neurologist and second-generation chiropractor who can personally attest to the power of chiropractic and functional neurology care. When he was ten-months old, Dr. Jacob suffered a head injury that left him partially paralyzed. Doctors said that he would never walk or talk. Through regular chiropractic care, Dr. Jacob defied his prognosis and dedicated his life to understanding the human nervous system so that he can deliver the same exceptional care that has allowed him to thrive today. Dr. Jacob’s case has been published in multiple publications, and he has spoken to both professional and lay audiences all over the country about the power of chiropractic.

During his time at Life University, Dr. Jacob served as the vice president for the Life Functional Neurology club where he gave weekly lectures on the complex structure and function of the human nervous system to students and doctors alike. He also attended the Carrick Institute for Graduate Studies where he received and continues to receive training in functional neurology amassing over 500 hours to date in advanced neurological diagnosis and treatment. Dr. Jacob has a true passion for patient care and has helped patients immensely with a range of complex neurological disorders including concussion/traumatic brain injury, childhood developmental disorders, vertigo, and more.

In addition to chiropractic neurology, Dr. Jacob’s other passions include spending time with his wife Sophia and daughter Zoe, hiking, camping, reading, tennis, snowboarding, and traveling.
