Jacob Caraotta

Board Member ICA/MCO
Dr. Caraotta has been a Christian believer since 1977.  Shortly after becoming a believer, his best friend in high school became a Mormon.  Early in his Christian walk, out of passion to lead his friend to Christ, he became interested defending the Christian faith, and started on the road to apologetics to expound biblical truth and refuting and exposing cults and the occult.  In his undergraduate education at Morehead State University, he was exposed to Josh McDowell’s teachings as well as Crew, deepening his understanding in Christian roots and obtaining additional tools in presenting the gospel.  In 1982, Dr. Caraotta attended the National College of Chiropractic currently called the National University of Health Sciences.  Since the natural health field breeds individuals with the mindset of “if it works, use it” many drawn to these fields are open to the occult and often engage in activities such as Transcendental Meditation and “healing” techniques that are spiritual in nature, contrary to biblical guidelines and can open individuals up to demonic oppression and control. On several occasions, Dr. Caraotta has exposed the danger of these practices to well-meaning colleagues. He uses his knowledge as a Chiropractic Orthopedist along with biblical guidelines in practice on a daily basis.

Dr. Caraotta has served on the advisory board council at the Winnebago County Board of Health, was board member of The Samaritan House, and currently serves on the boards of ICA/MCO and Bob Cornuke’s BASE Institute.  He has been in private practice since 1986, and is currently the only physician in Rockford board certified in Chiropractic and Orthopedics.  Dr. Caraotta and his wife have 4 children, reside in Boone county (Illinois), and are active in their church and the community.
