Rocky River Chiropractor, Dr. Laura Thornton

Twenty Years ago, I Was a Secretary

I worked all day behind a computer at a law firm. It was very stressful, and over time, my neck got extremely stiff. The problem got progressively worse, to the point where I couldn’t turn my head – I felt if I moved too fast, my neck would snap!

I knew nothing of chiropractic, so I went to see my MD. At the time, he prescribed Valiumfor me to relieve the pain. I must say, my neck did feel better! Even at that young age, however, I intuitively knew that drugs were not the answer for me.

A Wonderful Surprise

One day, I met a Chiropractor doing a complimentary spinal screening. It turned out my insurance covered Chiropractic care, so I thought I would give it a try. To my wonderful surprise, I found the adjustments comfortable and very relaxing. Within a very short period of time, not only did my neck pain go away, but I was left with an amazing feeling of well being. My overall health improved and I noticed I didn’t get sick as often either.

Fast forward nine years and I found myself enrolled at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa and graduated with my Doctor of Chiropractic degree in 2002.

At River Chiropractic & Wellness Center

In my practice, I believe in treating each patient as an individual and honoring each patient’s unique set of circumstances and health needs. My personal goal is to help you achieve your optimal level of wellness through a combination of small “doable” steps. Ultimately, letting you enjoy a life of vibrant health and wellness.

On a Personal Note

In my “spare” time, I am the mother of two beautiful children, Ava (born in 2002) and Evan (born in 2004). I love to get outside with the family and explore different aspects of life including arts and crafts, swimming, hiking, biking, arts, sports, and travel.

I like to get adjusted on a weekly basis. I enjoy getting adjusted just like I adjust my patients! I perform the LSA Pro on myself every month or two and am diligent about taking my whole food supplements too!
