Information for Patients

From the practitioner: About My Practice

April Vukelic, D.O., IMFCP, ReCODE 2.0 Certified Physician, is quadruple board certified by The Institute for Functional Medicine, American Board of Family Medicine, American Board of Preventive Medicine, and The American Board of Addiction Medicine.

Dr. Vukelic aims to blend her knowledge of functional medicine, environmental medicine, preventive medicine, osteopathy, and diet in a comprehensive approach to address the root cause for the whole person.

From the practitioner: What Patients Can Expect

One way Dr. Vukelic looks to treat the root cause is through cranial osteopathy. Sometimes, even with an optimal diet and lifestyle, mechanical issues from old injuries remain. Ailments commonly treated with osteopathy are headaches and low-back pain.

Dr. Vukelic is also an osteopathic physician trained in key lesion sequencing, biodynamic and cranial osteopathy. She had the honor of training directly with Dr. James Jealous and Dr. Ed Stiles. She trained in cranial osteopathy with a sutural approach with Dr. Ed Stiles and the curved tensegrity model of Dr. Beryl Arbuckle. Dr. Vukelic is a member of the Cranial Academy, The American Academy of Osteopathy, and teaches with The Indiana Academy of Osteopathy.
