A Childhood Injury Leads to Chronic Back Pain

When Dr. Thomson was a child, he fell off the monkey bars and injured himself badly. “My legs wouldn’t work and I couldn’t even walk to our campsite.” His dad decided to take him to a hospital. On the way, the car hit a speed bump that bounced Dr. Thomson in the car and shook something in his body. “I immediately felt better.”

“I suffered with chronic back pain as a result of the accident. In my early 20s, when I was working in a motor shop, I injured my back (as I did quite frequently). One of my colleagues there suggested that I see a chiropractor. I had never previously experienced chiropractic.”

My Introduction to Chiropractic Care

“I walked into the waiting room holding on to the walls because I was in so much pain and discomfort.” The chiropractor showed a video about what chiropractors do before he examined Dr. Thomson and began treatment. “He put me in a side posture position and adjusted my spine. I walked out of his office feeling better.”

Amazing and Unexpected Results

“Initially I visited him three times a week, then twice, and finally once a week. Not only did I feel better and experience relief from my chronic pain, but I also performed better as an athlete. I was training in martial arts at that time and began to set club records.”

Dr. Thomson recalls that when he was receiving regular adjustments, he stopped getting seasonal sicknesses like colds or the flu.

The Decision to Become a Chiropractor

“Chiropractic was a life-changing experience for me. I wanted to help others as best as I could by doing something like this. I wanted to change people’s lives for the better. So, I became a chiropractor. ”

Dr. Thomson went to the Palmer College of Chiropractic, West. “I chose the school because it was sports oriented but still stayed close to the roots of what chiropractic principles were originally built on. Besides, I liked the thought of living close to California, near the ocean.”

Life Outside the Practice

“I’m an outdoorsy guy. When I’m not at the practice, I like to get out and spend time hiking and being with my family.”
