Chiropractor Jon Gray D.C.
Years ago something happened to me that changed my life forever.
I was young and having a great time. I skied, played hockey, and enjoyed being active. But, then, one day it happened without warning… I was rebounding in basketball and my legs gave out. I started to get bad neck and back pain. It soon becomes so intense that skiing and basketball were out of the question.
I went to the medical doctor who specialized in backs. He gave me pills and said I would probably need surgery in my twenties and referred me to physical therapy. The physical therapist confirmed the medical doctor’s verdict and said he could help relieve symptoms until the inevitable surgery. So, here I was, a young guy in my prime missing out on all the activities I loved. I was scared, frustrated, and wasn’t looking forward to a life of pills and surgery.
Finally, my mom’s friend suggested a new doctor who worked with the US Olympic ski team. The new doctor did an exam, took some x-rays, and then “adjusted” my spine. The adjustment didn’t hurt, it actually felt good. And, guess what? I got relief, and I could ski and be active again. I was completely amazed. In my twenties when it was anticipated I would be scheduled for back surgery, I was practicing with the college judo team.
My wife and I have been blessed with five beautiful children. Being in my 40′s, I’m grateful for a lifestyle that allows me the health so I can keep up with them.
By the way, did I mention that this new doctor was a chiropractor? Chiropractic worked so well for me, that I decided to go to chiropractic school myself! And, that’s how it happened.
It’s strange how life is, because now people come to see me with their back problems.
I have been involved in rehabilitation and chiropractic since 1990 when I began working my way through undergrad in orthopedic rehabilitation. I have a Doctorate of Chiropractic and a BS in Human Anatomy from Parker Chiropractic College in Dallas. I also have a BS in Zoology from ISU. Before opening my practice in 2000, I interned with Parker College clinics and scoliosis treatment centers.
I enjoy spending time with my family, working out, skiing, backpacking, and generally being outdoors. Recently, I began learning how to play the guitar.
Our family has enjoyed the benefits of chiropractic wellness from the start. My wife received chiropractic care throughout her pregnancies, helping her to be more comfortable and deliver our children safely. We’ve adjusted our children from birth—they’ve rarely had earaches. Ask us sometime about their stories.
We recently had a new addition to our family, Benjamin Jon Gray, 10 lbs 2 oz, 23 inches long. Chiropractic care helped Heather sleep better and manage back and hip pain throughout her pregnancy. Chiropractic care also helped her have a safe, unmedicated, natural birth.
