Dr. Jaqua says that in DO school, he was taught to emphasize the connection between mind, body, and spirit to health, but he chose osteopathy because he already takes this approach naturally. It’s a philosophy of care he likes — to treat the whole person.

He focuses on nutrition for himself and his patients, emphasizing good health and not counting calories.

Patients also turn to Dr. Jaqua for sexual health issues, such as pain with intercourse and treatment of abnormal uterine bleeding. 

He’s open to exploring options that complement a traditional birth plan, such as having a doula present at the birth or using alternative treatments such as meditation, physical therapy, hydrotherapy, or acupuncture to relieve stress and discomfort.

Dr. Jaqua likes to run, bike, downhill ski, and camp in his spare time. He also competes in triathlons and he completed the Wisconsin Ironman. Most of all, he likes spending time with his wife, Maureen, a pediatric hospitalist, and their three sons, Ernie, Frankie, and Alfie.
