Willena Brooks was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. Upon completion of high school, she was awarded a full academic scholarship to Norfolk State University (NSU) located in Norfolk, Virginia. It was at Norfolk State University that Dr. Brooks attained her Bachelor of Science in Chemistry. Dr. Brooks began her chiropractic studies at Life University, located in Marietta, Georgia, in 2000. Approximately two years into her studies, Dr. Brooks transferred to Logan College of Chiropractic in Chesterfield, Missouri. She received her Doctorate of Chiropractic from Logan in 2004.
Rather than opening a traditional type of practice, Dr. Brooks wanted to do something practically unheard of in the chiropractic profession. Rather than focusing on personal injury or family chiropractic, Dr. Brooks decided to specialize in the natural healthcare of women using chiropractic, physical therapy, and nutrition to address their health issues. So in early 2005, Dr. Brooks opened Mommy & Me Chiropractic, Ltd. in her hometown of Cincinnati. After a successful two and a half years in practice, Dr. Brooks closed her practice to relocate to Columbus, Ohio.
In February 2009, Dr. Brooks opened ChiroCare for Women, LLC. As with Mommy & Me Chiropractic, Ltd., through Chirocare for Women, Dr. Brooks strives to help women achieve optimal health and wellness. Pregnancy related structural imbalances, menstrual related back pain, and headaches are all common conditions seen in the office. In addition to those issues affecting women, she also effectively evaluates, treats, and manages patients with spinal conditions, joint pain, and musculoskeletal injuries.
Dr. Brooks is the only Columbus chiropractor who specializes, exclusively, in the chiropractic care of women. She is dedicated to helping women achieve optimal health and wellness utilizing conservative care procedures and natural products. She has been an Ohio licensed Doctor of Chiropractic since 2005. She has completed many hours of continuing education classes/courses in the areas of nutrition, wellness, and rehabilitation. Dr. Brooks is currently continuing her education to obtain a Diplomate from the Academy of Chiropractic Orthopedists.
In her spare time, Dr. Brooks enjoys spending time with her family, reading, or watching documentaries.
