Dr. Terry Smedstad
A high school football injury led to my career in Chiropractic. At the time, I was told I needed surgery, and could never participate in contact sports again. My Chiropractor, (the Oakland team Chiropractor at the time), helped me avoid surgery and get back to a normal, very active life. In fact, I was able to play championship rugby in college! It was that experience that made me want to help other people, to show them what Chiropractic could do for them.
I chose to attend Palmer Chiropractic College because I wanted to equip myself with the finest Chiropractic education available. The founding father of Chiropractic, Dr. D.D. Palmer, developed a theory that spinal misalignment caused nerve pressure and/or irritation which, in turn, caused various ailments. He realized that the structure and condition of the body influenced how the body functioned, and its ability to heal itself, without the use of drugs or surgery.
This simple philosophy has healed people and prevented unwanted injury and illness for over a century! Because of this philosophy and Palmers extremely high standards, I am very proud of my affiliation with them. Furthermore, being a Wellness Chiropractor has expanded my knowledge of the innate wisdom of the body to heal itself, through Chiropractic, to optimal Wellness.
I love being a Wellness Chiropractor because of what it has done not only for my health, my familys health, but for all the patients I have helped and need to help. I have the opportunity to give people the same gift that a Chiropractor once gave me — Optimal True Health. It is amazing to witness a patients level of health dramatically improve with proper Chiropractic care.
Celebrating being a Chiropractor for almost 30 years, I have advanced methods in therapies and treatments in Chiropractic Wellness. Furthermore, continuing education and specialized training courses enable me to have a unique, well-rounded range of skills that enhance my work as a Wellness Chiropractic Doctor.
