Chiropractor Lombard IL Jim Sronkoski With Team
Chiropractor Lombard IL Jim Sronkoski Meet The Team



My journey into health and wellness started in middle school when my gym teacher boldly pronounced, “If you do not take care of your body through diet and exercise you will suffer the consequences of disease.”

Scared that I was going to face an early demise, I started to watch what I ate. I gave up soda and started to lift weights. Into high school, I was the weird kid that didn't buy lunch from the cafeteria but instead packed my own (something I still do!). Through high school I became more interested in anatomy and weight lifting which led me to pursue my degree in Kinesiology at Northern Illinois University. At NIU, I joined the rugby team and was introduced to chiropractic when I hurt my shoulder. This form of healthcare was new to me but it resonated. Through chiropractic and some soft tissue techniques my shoulder was better after a couple sessions. The more I learned about chiropractic the more I knew that it was the path for me. Then when I figured out I could play rugby at Palmer Chiropractic College in Davenport, Iowa and become a chiropractor, I was sold.

After graduating in 2016, I worked as an associate for the chiropractor that had helped me in college. While there I learned the power of combining chiropractic with physiotherapy. Working on both the joints and the muscles helped our patients tremendously.

Currently, as director of BrightLife Clinic - Lombard I recognize the benefit of combining services. Whether it's chiropractic, physiotherapy, massage, decompression, posture correction, etc the patient's treatment plan is tailored to fit their current needs. My team and I look forward to providing the highest quality care while helping our patients return to living healthy lifestyles with the least amount of pain as possible.

While not in the clinic, I enjoy spending time with my wife and four children. Our lives are crazy busy but I wouldn’t change a thing.

Chiropractor Lombard IL Michael O'Connor Meet The Team


Michael O'Connor D.C.

I always knew I wanted to be in healthcare for as long as I could remember. When I was young, doctors appointments were always so fascinating to me. Seeing the stethoscopes, machines, and "fancy scales" that the doctors used always had me in a trance. It wasn't until college that I realized I could actually pursue my dreams.

I began with declaring a degree of Anesthesiology at Eastern Illinois University, because of my love for healthcare and general sciences. However, I quickly found out exactly how much schooling and difficult coursework that would entail. I found my love for kinesiology and anatomy shortly after. Within research and coursework I found just how much there is to teach people about how their body works and that modern medicine is just a "band-aid" to most problems. It wasn't until my senior year where I discovered the holy grail that is chiropractic medicine; The combination of kinesiology and healthcare.

In 2020, amidst COVID-19, I began my journey at Logan University in Chesterfield, Missouri. This is where I was able to develop my skills of healing people with my hands and teaching them about their body at the same time. After all the work on paper was done, my penultimate accomplishment was my preceptorship at a private office where I finally was able to put everything into practice!

My fiancé and I met in high school in Plainfield, IL and plan to get married here locally in October later this year! Once I finally graduated in December of 2023, we knew it was time for us to finally come back home. When we're not at work, we are either wedding planning or spending time with our two black labs, Jack and Oliver.

Chiropractic Lombard IL Chrissy Karl Meet The Staff

Office Manager


I have been in the Chiropractic industry going on 18 years. After a basketball injury in high school, I started treatment at a local clinic and then began working there during my off seasons. I continued regular treatment through college until I graduated. Chiropractic literally got me through years of multiple basketball injuries.

I graduated from North Central College with a bachelor's of Science in Sport Management & Business Administration. While at North Central I was Captain of the Women's Basketball Team for two years. After trying my hand as operations manager for a Sports Facility, I missed being able to really help people feel better and make a difference in their lives and decided to return to the industry I feel I belonged in.

Here at BrightLife as the office manager I strive to make our clinic the best it can be for our patients and staff. I have been trained in various techniques throughout my years of experience, so you will often see me all over the clinic. I look forward to helping people change their lives and reach their health goals.

Outside of the office when I'm not singing with my band, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our 3 pets.

Chiropractic Lombard IL Kassandra Darrus Meet The Staff

Head Physical Therapy Assistant


Ever since I was young, I've always known that I had a passion for helping others. I knew I was meant to be in the medical field, but I had a hard time finding the perfect field for me. Until I stumbled on this amazing video of a little boy walking within his rolling walker.

He was so proud he was able to take steps he told his puppy, "Look Maggie, I'm walking Maggie!" At that moment, after watching it 20 times and sobbing my eyes out, I knew I was meant to be in Physical Therapy.

I quickly joined the Physical Therapy Assistant Program at College of Dupage. It became very clear to me right away that therapy was my passion. There I was able to learn the benefits of Mobility and Movement in terms of healing the body. I was able to learn skilled techniques such as, Massage, Joint Mobilizations, PNF patterns, Gait analysis, and much more. I also learned different forms of Modalities to heal the body. Some to mention would be Electrical Stimulation, Fluidotherapy, Hydrotherapy, Ultrasound, Diathermy, etc… I was able to apply my skills through my clinical rotations. There I was able to gain first-hand knowledge of treating patients and developing proper treatment plans according to the evaluation from the DPT.

Here at BrightLife I have been able to implement the training and techniques I have, as well as incorporate the new teachings I have learned under the supervision of Dr. Jim. Here we focus on healing the body through Physiotherapy, Massage, Chiropractic adjustments, Decompression, Muscle Stripping, Cupping, Sanexas for neuropathy, and Physical Therapy. I've been able to learn and grow so much here at Bright Life, and I can't wait to assist you in the journey of healing your body and becoming a better you.

Therapy Tech

Hannah Petrucci

My name is Hannah, I am a therapy tech. here at Bright Life. I am a full time student currently working to earn my bachelors degree in Exercise science/Kinesiology. I plan to further my education at North Central College by earning my DPT, Doctorate of Physical Therapy.

I have always loved health care and knew I wanted to pursue it in some way or another. It wasn't until I experienced physical therapy first hand, where I fell in love with the field. My senior year of highschool I was in a car accident that changed the course of my life. Everything became an uncertainty, the only constant I had in my life was my physical therapist that I saw 2-3 times a week for nearly 7 months. When I realized the impact my DPT had on me, I knew I wanted to create that same impact for many others. I am beyond blessed that I get the opportunity to work with the BrightLife team and continue to help people each and every day.
