Dr. Stephen Sherman
Hi, I’m Dr. Stephen Sherman. Welcome to Crux Chiropractic.
Before moving to Milwaukee to create Crux, a majority of my clinical experience was in sports rehab and integrated health care settings in Seattle, Washington. It was during this time that I took a closer look at injury care and realized that the standard models are incomplete; they either take too long or don’t provide the full solution to getting patients back to their goals and full potential. I wanted to create a vibrant and supportive sport rehab office where we combine the best of chiropractic, physiotherapy, and massage; where care providers team up with each patient to create and accomplish goals; and where patients leave feeling stronger, healthier, and more capable than they’ve ever been.
My approach to chiropractic and rehab is grounded in working with every patient on an individualized basis. Every patient’s needs and goals are different, whether they are striving to set a personal best in a local half marathon, rehab a shoulder injury and get back to climbing, want to be able to get up and down from the floor to play with their grand kids, or simply want to be able to sit at a desk for a couple hours without pain. I work tirelessly to anticipate and address the needs of my patients while providing evidence grounded solutions. Through effective communication, empathy, accountability, and creating the ideal ecosystem, most folks are able to rebound from injury, to overcome pain, and to reclaim their quality of life...And I’m proud to be on their team.

Travis Owens, ATC SFG
My name is Travis Owens, and I am the Director of Rehabilitation at Crux Chiropractic. I hail from Lancaster, CA and grew up in the high desert and greater Los Angeles area. I am a certified and licensed Athletic Trainer by trade and education and have 15 years work experience in the fields of athletic training and rehabilitation. Currently, I am the co-owner of Discipline Of Strength Performance, a fitness business focused on Russian style kettlebell training, movement assessment, and restoration. Over the past 15 years, I have worked in all kinds of environments such as: the NFL, NCAA (division I & III), NAIA, as well as the fields of neurosurgery, industrial fitness, chiropractic and personal training.
I am so excited to be a part of the Crux Chiropractic team! My passion is movement, and most of my time is spent studying, teaching, assessing, and performing safe and effective movement patterns and strategies. I talk the talk in regards to movement, and I also walk the walk as I am a certified Strong First instructor (level I) and kettlebell enthusiast (girevik). I believe that a strong human being is a free individual, able to do whatever, go wherever and be whatever that person wants to be. Strength takes a coordinated effort of safe and effective movement patterns and strategies, proper individualized nutrition, and sleep habits. However, the cost of living is we sometimes experience injury or chronic issues that can dictate your levels of movement and enjoyable living. My primary role at Crux is to guide our patients from the clinical world back to real life, a life that allows, encourages and empowers you to move and thrive throughout the rest of your life.
I look forward to meeting you as we team up to provide excellent service and a results based practice.
