“Chiropractic in not designed to make you instantly feel better. It’s designed to make you instantly HEAL better”

Tom Hooker, Chiropractor

Tom was born in Vancouver, WA and raised in Crystal Lake, Illinois.  He received his Bachelor of Science degree majoring in Human Biology with a minor in Psychology from King University in Bristol, Tennessee.  During these four years, Tom played for the King University Baseball Team.  Tom graduated with Distinction from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA with a degree of Doctor of Chiropractic in June of 2018.  Despite the busy schedule of a College athlete, Tom was named to the Dean’s List each year at King University and every trimester at Palmer.

Growing up, Tom was always involved in many sporting activities and frequently visited a Chiropractor for various sports injuries.  He recognized early that each time he left the office, not only did he feel better but he was equipped with advice on how to stay healthy and remain active.  These experiences, paired with his fascination with the human body, ultimately lead him to the great profession of Chiropractic.  His goal is to help people with their health and wellness each and everyday. 

Despite a very busy undergrad schedule, Tom still found the opportunity to volunteer his time.  During the Holiday Cheer Event, he gathered and delivered gifts to the cities’ less fortunate.  Tom also spent countless hours as a rehab intern at Palmer College, having developed a special interest in sport related injuries and rehabilitation.  In terms of analysis, Tom uses a full-body approach, understanding that the body is a network of interlacing systems that rely on each other and work as one for optimal performance.  In practice, he commonly uses Diversified, Activator, Thompson, McKenzie along with soft tissue techniques depending on each individual case.

While waiting for his permanent residency to be finalized, Dr. Hooker did not sit idly. He volunteered his time with Holy Rosary’s baseball academy 2-3 times per week. He and fiancé, Dr. Caitlynn Graf, also volunteer twice per week with Lloydminster’s Special Olympics bowling and walking club. Additionally, he and Dr. Graf completed a comprehensive course regarding concussion management and baseline testing, joined up with Lakeland Rustler athletics and adopted a rescue dog, Otis, from our local SPCA.

Dr. Tom Hooker is excited about joining Lloydminster Chiropractic Centre /Midwest Physiotherapy and practicing in this great community.
