Dr. Joe and Dr. Jana established Strater Family Chiropractic in the beginning of 2008. We first met each other early on in chiropractic school and were married before we graduated. Currently we have three beautiful children and enjoy our lifestyle in Cocoa Beach.
Both of us are trained to provide care for patients of all ages. We use several different techniques depending on what works best for each patient (see 'Techniques' tab).
Other professional experience includes a 2005 trip to the islands of Fiji with fellow classmates to provide the natives of Fiji with free chiropractic care.
Thousands of people received chiropractic over the three week period and we experienced first-hand the amazing benefits of chiropractic in a region where healthcare was practically non-existent.
Both of us also finished our school clinic requirements early which allowed us to practice in the field with another chiropractor for our entire last semester! Awesome experience!
Dr. Jana Strater, DC
Dr. Jana received her Doctorate of Chiropractic in 2006 from Palmer Chiropractic College. She also has a Bachelors of Arts degree from Olivet College, MI. She was born in Minnesota but spent most of her childhood in Michigan. Dr. Jana has really enjoyed Florida's sunshine and beauty since moving to Brevard County. She is a dedicated mother and chiropractor and her experience with children really shows with our pediatric patients.
Chiropractic obviously plays a big role in her current daily life but it actually played an even larger role in her upbringing. Dr. Jana was diagnosed by her primary physician with scoliosis as a teenager and given no choice but to basically wait till it was bad enough for surgery. But as fate had it, her best friend's mother was a chiropractor and Dr. Jana's mother figured why not "give it a try". As Dr. Jana received chiropractic adjustments, the curvature of her spine was greatly reduced to near perfect. This “miracle” allowed her to stay active in sports, dance, drill team, and much more throughout her childhood. Without those experiences, she feels her life would have been led down a dramatically different road. So as she helps others through chiropractic, she not only gives to patients but gives back to chiropractic.
Dr. Jana is also an active member with the Florida Chiropractic Society (FCS).
