Knoxville Chiropractor - Dr. Nathan Leavitt
“Let me tell you my story about how I became a chiropractor. …”
Several years ago my uncle gave me the opportunity to work at his clinic as a therapy assistant. After working there for a short period of time, I was amazed at what he was doing. He was helping people with all sorts of different conditions, and he was doing it naturally.
I didn’t have any major health problems myself, just minor aches and pains in my back. I was surprised my uncle still treated me even though my pains were minor. I thought they were normal. I was amazed at how much better I felt after the treatment. The adjustment didn’t hurt, it actually felt good. I didn’t have any aches or pains any more and I noticed that I didn’t get sick as much. I also felt like I had more energy.
I was so amazed by the miracles that I saw in my uncle’s office that I decided to go to Chiropractic school myself. It’s strange how life is because now people come to see me with their health problems. I enjoy helping people out of pain to live a better quality of life.
A Chiropractic Education
I went to school at Palmer College of Chiropractic. I was initially interested in going there because it was the school my uncle attended and I knew he had a good experience there. After researching some of the other chiropractic schools I learned that Palmer College of Chiropractic was the first school of chiropractic in the world. It was started by the founder of Chiropractic, Daniel David Palmer, in 1897. I learned that it was an excellent chiropractic school and I felt it would be the best place to receive my chiropractic education.
I learned that many of the courses in chiropractic school were the same as medical school. It was challenging but rewarding.
I was grateful for the education I obtained there not just for my future patients, but for myself and my family. I learned how to really be healthy and not just out of pain. Now I’m better able to take care of my own health and the health of my family.
On a Personal Note…
I enjoy spending time with my wife and three children when I’m not at work. We love getting outside whenever possible, especially camping and hiking. There are many sports I like but basketball and golf are my favorites. I also enjoy serving in the church I attend.
I believe that chiropractic care is important for myself and family. My wife and children regularly receive chiropractic care; my kids even love to jump up on the chiropractic table and get adjusted. I am adjusted by another chiropractor that I work with, we perform chiropractic treatments on each other which helps us keep our spine and body healthy. I also believe that exercise and diet is important so I work out at the gym regularly and include weight lifting, stretching and cardiovascular exercise in my routine.
