World Class Chiropractic on The Cover of Family Values Magazine… Now a little more about Dr. Thomas Myers and his wife Laura:
Do you want to move to Peru ?” my husband asked after hanging up the phone. I sat there for a moment, silent. I thought he was kidding. Then I saw his smile—a sincere smile that said he wasn’t kidding. That was six years ago. It was the start of a life-changing experience. A doctor’s office in Lima had asked him to spend a year giving chiropractic care to some of the poorest people in Peru . This offer appealed to my husband’s generous heart. He jumped on the opportunity to make a real difference. A few short weeks, we sold all of our belongings and flew to Peru . We were heading for a new life, a new culture and a new language.
Immediately, the patients who stole our hearts were the children. These children lived in houses where the walls were made of thatched mats, and the roof was either a thatched mat or a blue tarp. They would walk daily down the litter lined streets where the pungent smell lofting into the air was nauseating, to purchase their food for the day. With the extremely low amount of rain received in Lima, these children are very dusty, their little faces and tattered clothes are filthy, and cleaning their clothes and themselves is generally reserved for a highly contaminated river which runs through Central Lima. Some of these children have shoes which barely consist of a sole, and some string to hold them together. They inspired us to start an organization which provided shoes for more than 5000 underprivileged children in Peru . Tom graciously gave thousands of exams and adjustments to these children out of the love in his heart and his desire to give them care.
During our time in Peru , we opened two chiropractic offices. It is amazing that Tom performed over 60,000 chiropractic adjustments in just over five years in Lima and we are now bi-lingual. His patients included not only the children but also many well known persons too. They included the Vice President of Peru, Congressmen, high ranking officials from many of the world’s Embassies, TV, radio, and sports stars, and a past beauty queen. Tom was on TV and radio weekly, wrote articles for many papers, and gave talks several times per week all in Spanish! On three occasions, Tom was invited to lecture to the doctors and nurses and other employees of the Minesterio De Salud (Health Ministry) in Lima . The Health Ministry is essentially the governing body for the healthcare in Peru . Since they were adding prevention to their healthcare system, Tom was asked how chiropractic could assist them. It was incredible to see the people see the benefit of chiropractic care and live its miracles day-by-day.
Tom has his Bachelors of Arts Degree in Exercise Science, with a concentration in Sports Medicine, and a Doctorate of Chiropractic. He also received an additional four years of training in the correction of Scoliosis and many other issues. As his wife, I have the privilege of witnessing his amazing abilities. I have seen his chiropractic care provide life changes for countless patients. He even was rewarded by having a patient name her son after him. I know our children think of him as a hero and I do too.
We have moved back to our home to be with family and open our Wesley Chapel office, “World Class Chiropractic” in Seven Oaks, just behind Sam’s Club. Join us now in celebrating our new office by calling 813-973-8883.
