Dr. Emma Minx attended DePauw University, where she earned her B.A. in Kinesiology and Spanish. She then attended Logan University in St. Louis and she received her Doctorate of Chiropractic. While at Logan, Dr. Minx concurrently pursued her Master of Sports Science and Rehabilitation. After graduation, she obtained the distinction of Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician. She currently is one of the team chiropractors for the Chicago Bears.
Dr. Minx became a patient of chiropractic and ART after suffering from shoulder and back pain while playing high school softball. After receiving treatment, she saw her injuries disappear and her performance on the field greatly improve. Because of the care she received, she went on to have a successful collegiate career. This ultimately influenced her decision to pursue a career as a chiropractor.
Dr. Minx prides herself on understanding the biomechanics and injuries specific to many sports and activities. As a former high school and collegiate athlete and suffering several sports related injuries, she understands the importance of returning to play as quickly as possible. Her goal is to relieve the pain but also identify and treat the cause of the injury. She is certified in multiple soft tissue techniques - Active Release Techniques, RockTape, Fascial Distortion Model and Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization - which she feels is key to healing injuries more quickly.
Dr. Minx is a North Shore native. Growing up, she played travel softball for the Illinois Chill and Oak Park Huskies organizations. She attended Glenbrook North High School and now treats their current athletes. Today, when she is not working, she enjoys staying active and doing Crossfit.
