Dr. Tonya Khouri
“After years of health problems, a doctor at the Mayo Clinic told me I needed to see a chiropractor because I might have a pinched nerve. After eight abdominal surgeries, a chiropractor diagnosed my rare stomach disease (which can be related to a nerve in the low back) and referred me to the correct doctor.” At the time, Dr. Tonya was working in corporate America and getting ready to go to law school. Her positive experience motivated her to quit Corporate America, opt out of Law School and focus her energies to help others live a quality, pain free life. She decided then to become a chiropractor.

Providing Help and Hope to Patients
“I want people to understand that there are other ways to treat health problems than with drugs and surgery.” Dr. Tonya is able to keep her autoimmune disease under control with chiropractic adjustments, nutrition, acupuncture and physical therapy.
For her, the most fulfilling aspect of being a chiropractor is giving people hope and changing their lives. “It’s so rewarding to help and watch people naturally heal themselves. If I could help one person, it was worth the switch.”
Outside the Practice
When she’s not at in the office, Dr. Tonya enjoys spending time outdoors and traveling with her husband and their three young children, Luke, Neva and Emily.
