Chiropractor Chad Jenkins D.C.


The son of a Navy man, Dr. Chad Jenkins was born and lived in Puerto Rico until the age of 3 when his father was stationed at Naval Air Station Oceana in Virginia Beach.

Dr. Chad graduated from Kempsville High School in Virginia Beach in 1993.  He enrolled at Salisbury State University where he completed his Bachelor of Science in Biology and a Masters in Post-Secondary Education.  After spending six great years in Salisbury, Dr. Chad moved from the East Coast to the quieter state of Iowa to attend Palmer College of Chiropractic, one the nations premier chiropractic colleges, where he earned his Doctorate of Chiropractic degree in 2005.

Dr. Chad’s passion is to serve and educate the Hampton Roads community on the principles of health and natural healing.  Dr. Chad believes that the human body was created to heal and that true HEALING occurs when the impediments to optimal health are removed.  Therefore, Dr. Chad’s approach to each client is to find the cause of their afflictions and to implement a specific plan that is designed to remove any impediments and to restore health to their bodies.

As a devoted and skilled chiropractor, Dr. Chad saw a MAJOR need in Chesapeake and Norfolk to help clients lose weight in a healthy manner without drugs, surgeries, shots and processed foods.

With that in mind, Dr. Chad started Planet Wellness, which is quickly becoming the premier weight loss clinic in Chesapeake, and Norfolk.  Dr. Chad’s approach to weight loss at Planet Wellness involves increasing the health of clients by balancing hormones, detoxifying the body, teaching clean eating principles, and providing individualized and homeopathic supplementation protocols that literally allow the body to do what it was designed to do—burn fat!

Everyday Dr. Chad is more and more excited to watch his clients lose weight, but even more so to hear the great news from those same clients about decreases in medication, greater amounts of energy, better mood, improvements in sleep, and, most importantly, more confidence and joy than ever!
