Meet Dr. Diane Ferris

dr-diane-ferris-2018-smallLifelong Interest in Sports, Exercise and Rehabilitation

Dr. Ferris has always been interested in the role of exercise and rehabilitation in improving health, and taught aerobics and weight training long before becoming a chiropractor. She approaches her patients with a “rehabilitation mindset,” finding out what’s going on, determining how she can fix it, and teaching her patients how to take good care of themselves.

Her interest in chiropractic care began when her husband hurt his back early in their marriage. She saw how much the adjustments helped him, and realized that the profession was everything she had been looking for. Working as a microbiologist at the time, she had been feeling limited, and chiropractic medicine embodied her dual interests of science and movement.

Education and Achievements

Dr. Diane Ferris has been in private practice since 1996, after graduating from the National University of Health Sciences in Lombard, Illinois. In 2004, she became a Diplomate of Acupuncture and achieved certification by the National Certification Commission of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM), the highest level of certification in the field of acupuncture. She has a Master’s degree in nursing  (MSN) and has focused her nursing career in rehabilitation.

Prior to her education in Chiropractic, she earned a B.S in Biology from Loyola University and worked as Microbiology Lab Supervisor.

Dr. Ferris is active in the Illinois Chiropractic Association, and has a commitment to improving her skills and knowledge through the continuing education offered by that organization. She is currently studying to become a Diplomate of the Academy of Chiropractic Orthopedists, and is therefore up to date on the most effective and advanced rehabilitative exercises, stretches and current exam procedures.

Outside of the Practice

Dr. Ferris is an avid cyclist and runner, and recently completed a half-marathon. She is a board member of both the Rotary Club of Naperville and the Naperville Junior Woman’s Club.

It was her husband’s back injury that changed the course of her professional career, and he continues to be an inspiration. Diagnosed with muscular dystrophy, his condition helps her educate others about optimizing their own health. He has certain limitations that he has no control over, but most of her patients can make a choice and exercise control, leading them to their best possible health.
