A Love of Chiropractic

It was 1980, the summer before my high school senior year and I was practicing the high jump when I missed the mats and landed on the concrete; flat on my back. I couldn’t stand or even move without experiencing intense pain. After taking pain killers and muscle relaxants for a few days, that were prescribed by our family doctor, I was still experiencing pain and discomfort, so my father recommended that I go see Dr. Ken Kinsley, a Chiropractor in Waverly, NY.

I had never been to a Chiropractor before and was unsure what to expect. Dr. Ken gave me my first adjustment and I felt relief immediately. After receiving a few more adjustments, I was able to stand and walk with minimal pain. It was that quick pain relief that peaked my curiosity and interest in finding out more about Chiropractic. I continued to treat and learn more about Chiropractic from Dr. Kinsley and soon realized that Chiropractic was more than pain relief, it was about finding the cause, addressing it and allowing the body to heal itself. It was that healing philosophy, along with Dr. Kinsley’s influence and my passion for health and fitness that led me into pursuing my Chiropractic career.

I attended Mansfield University for my undergraduate studies and in 1989 graduated from National College of Chiropractic. I worked as an Associate Chiropractor for 8 months and on January 4, 1991, I started Horn Family Chiropractic.

Fast forward 38 years and my respect and love for the Chiropractic profession is stronger than ever. Chiropractic isn’t age or job specific, we see newborns to people in their late 90’s that benefit from Chiropractic care. Chiropractic is for everybody!

On A Personal Note:

My wife, Jody and I are avid sports fans. We enjoy watching our local youth and high school teams and will often travel to State College to attend PSU wrestling matches. Spending time with family and friends is important.to us. The creativity and stress relief of cooking is another hobby I have come to appreciate. Come summertime, you’re likely to find me on the mower and see our dog, Brody, racing alongside me.

A Love of Chiropractic
Chiropractic has literally been a part of my life since birth. My Great grandfather as well as my Grandfather were Chiropractors, both graduates of Palmer Chiropractic College in Iowa. They played a key role in keeping our family healthy through Chiropractic adjustments and nutritional guidance.

Growing up, I was involved in various athletics and activities that were rough on my body and the adjustments I received helped to keep me in the game. In fact, Dr. Tom Horn was one of the Chiropractors who helped to keep me active and competing.

As parents of two incredibly active boys, Mason and Kellan, my wife Jennifer and I know firsthand the tremendous benefits Chiropractic adjustments provide children. They are healthier and bounce back faster when they get sick. The importance of Chiropractic care for kids cannot be understated.

I am now in my late 30’s and continue to compete in multiple off-road motorcycle events each year. I know, without a doubt, that the Chiropractic care I receive from Dr. Tom & Dr. Sarah is a key factor that allows me to compete at a high level.

In 2004, I graduated from New York Chiropractic College and joined the team at Horn Family Chiropractic in June of 2007. Being a Chiropractor has also allowed me to blend my passion for health, wellness and exercise with what I do on a daily basis at Horn Family Chiropractic. I am able to practice in my hometown, care for my family and make a positive impact in the community I grew up in.

On A Personal Note:

I spend as much time as possible with my wife and two sons. Being active is part of everyday life for Jennifer, who is an Exercise Physiologist, and I. We include our boys, Mason and Kellan, in all our activities through hiking, biking, fishing, hunting, riding motorcycles, and working out. We both enjoy training and are very thankful for the opportunities to help others with our knowledge and expertise. Besides family and Chiropractic, my other passion is competing in off-road motorcycle events (Hare Scrambles/Enduros/GNCC).

A Love of Chiropractic

I always knew I wanted to do something in healthcare, but it was important to me to find a specialty that dealt with more than just treating symptoms. After graduating from Penn State University with my Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology, I began my healthcare career working as a Physical Therapy Technician and a Personal Trainer. During one of my treatment sessions, I met Dr. Tom Horn and helped to rehabilitate his right knee after replacement surgery. It was at that point, that he explained exactly what Chiropractic is and what he did as a Chiropractor.

Health, fitness, and rehabilitation have always been very important to me. What really appealed to me was that the chiropractic philosophy was a natural and holistic approach to address the whole body. It is centered on finding the cause, rather than just treating the symptoms. This philosophy aligned with my kinesiology background in that it involved proper movements of the body, the musculoskeletal structure, and the nervous system. I also appreciated the hands-on nature of the job. Chiropractic has made me realize just how incredible the human body is and how important natural healthcare is.

In December of 2013, I graduated from New York Chiropractic College and March of 2014, I joined the team at Horn Family Chiropractic. I am now living out my dream of working close to my hometown community and helping patients achieve their health and wellness goals.

On A Personal Note:

Outside the office, I enjoy spending my time hiking, fishing, kayaking and long distance running. I have participated in adventure runs such as the Tough Mudder and Spartan Races. My family and friends are very important to me and I enjoy spending as much time with them as I can.
