Meet Dr. Jen https://www.miluschiropractic.com/
Doctor of Chiropractic

While studying at the University of Maryland, Dr. Jen Milus was injured in an auto accident. This was when she discovered Chiropractic and that changed her life, that dream took her to Palmer College of Chiropractic, in San Jose, California.  There she focused her study on sports injuries, training for elite distance running, and cycling. 

After graduating in December of 1993, Dr. Jen settled in Pleasanton, California with her family and set up her practice. Life consisted of running a full-time Chiropractic practice in addition to being a high school team doctor, an exercise & rehab coach, a lacrosse coach, and a mother. She worked with sports injuries, work & auto injuries and the 2008 Olympic Synchronized Swimmers for strength and conditioning.

After 19 years in private practice, she accepted a position with the Department of Defense. She treated military personnel at 29 Palms Marine Corps Base in the Mohave Desert, California, Marine Corps Headquarters, Quantico, Virginia and the Navy Yard in Washington, D.C. 

After six years in Washington and her daughter in Chiropractic school in San Jose, California, Dr. Jen decided to return to Pleasanton for quality of life and practice. During her off hours, she can be found riding her bicycle or climbing the ridge with her “best friend” Max.
