I first became interested in a natural, hands-on approach to health and wellness through my Mom. Being originally from northern Maine, I grew up with a lot of snow, making it the perfect winter wonderland for adventurers like me. However, when I was only 5, my Mom suffered from multiple injuries in a car accident as a result of icy weather. She began seeing a local Doctor of Chiropractic for her pain and suffering and thus began a long road to recovery. My Dad worked out of town a lot so I decided to help Mom every morning and evening by massaging her sore muscles and damaged joints. I know my efforts were instrumental in helping her start her day a little easier despite my little hands getting so sore and tired! But I told myself then as I do now, 'if this is what God really wants me to do, then I will do it well and be better off for it!' Long story short, Mom recovered and apparently, that was the start of God's plan for me and my 'magic' hands. Fast forward a few years, I ended up moving with my family to New Jersey at age 11 (country boy turns into city boy!) and shortly thereafter my Mom had another serious MVA(motor vehicle accident) due to a manufacturing defect with 1 of her tires. These injuries were much, much worse but she still sought out a chiropractor to help her recover. Once again I got to witness the profound impact the adjustments made in her miraculous healing. I was given the opportunity to try chiropractic at that time but stopped going after only a couple of visits because its purpose wasn't clear to me (and it lost its value). While in college studying pre-vet, I quickly learned that chickens, bunnies, and horses didn't interest me as much as how the human body worked. In the process, I decided to re-visit Mom's chiropractor and began receiving regular adjustments to help with stress, while entertaining the possibility of becoming a GEN-U-INE 'bone cracker'. I enjoyed how it made me feel and could really see a definite improvement in my allergies, hyperactivity, ability to focus, tension levels, flexibility, and overall ability to cope better with life's surprises.
I eventually realized that part of God's plan for my life was to share this skill He'd begun developing in me at a very young age. I believe that part of what makes me one of the best chiropractic practitioners around are the hundreds of extra hours I've spent working on the back, years before I even thought of chiropractic as a career. I believe it gives me an advantage in helping sick people get well faster and stay well longer. My heart is also in the right place, as illustrated in my professional mission statement which reads:
My professional mission is to be a dedicated and successful chiropractor, serving the community of any town by offering the finest, affordable chiropractic healthcare services with professionalism, clinical expertise, and compassion.
It is why Family Chiropractic's purpose statement reads:
The purpose of our clinic is to support as many people as possible in their quest for health & to educate them about Chiropractic so they may, in turn, educate others.
Yours for better health, Dr. T
