Dr. John E. Thomas

Thomas's First Encounter with Chiropractic

Dr. Thomas found his passion for chiropractic after his wife, Leia, was injured at the beach two weeks after they were married. She was bedridden for nine months while being treated by a physical therapist, under the prescription of an orthopedist. When she failed to get well, surgery seemed to be the only solution. However, friends suggested the couple consult a chiropractor.

Seeking Treatment from a Chiropractor

Dr. Thomas's wife went to her first consultation, barely able to walk, bent over, and in great pain. The chiropractor's explanation of what was causing the problem was clear and made sense, so the couple decided to try his treatment. Leia's first chiropractic manipulation was quite a success. She left the office standing straight and pain-free. She knew she was in the right professionals' office. Within a few weeks, with continued chiropractic care to strengthen her, she was able to return to work.

The Chiropractic Choice

This experience caused Dr. Thomas to change his path from medicine to chiropractic. He had been a premed student, wondering which specialty he should choose. As he researched chiropractic, he realized that it was aligned with his belief that providing the body a proper environment and good nutrition; the body often has the ability to heal itself without drugs or surgery.

Attending Chiropractic School

A year after Leia's first chiropractic manipulation, Dr. Thomas started attending The Fountain Head of Chiropractic, Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. After graduating with honors from Palmer Chiropractic College, Dr. Thomas and Leia settled in the Visalia area, where Leia had spent her teenage years. They knew Visalia would be a wonderful place to start Dr. Thomas's practice and raise their newly started family.
