Dr. Zach Thompson's Story


While training in the offseason my freshman year in college I experienced the most life changing moment I've had thus far. As I was back one rep maxing a back squat, I couldn't stand up with the weight. So instead of letting spotters help me I dumped the bar and in such 'threw out' my back. The pain was immediate and I couldn't get off the floor for 20 minutes. Following the initial pain, I couldn't tie my shoes, sit comfortably in class, and I couldn't fall asleep without taking 8 Advil and 2 sleeping pills. This lasted 5 months. 

Over the course of those 5 months I sought care from 2 different athletic trainers and a PT. After no results and being back home for the summer I went to an orthopedic surgeon for imaging. MRI's indicated no reason for surgery, which led to the surgeon giving me two options. A bottle of Vicodin or the chiropractor down the hall. I chose the later, and can only thank God for that decision and what unfolded. In less than two weeks not only was I out of pain but I was back in the gym training like the 19 year old version of me should've been. Hope was dealt. 

After finishing care with the chiropractor I was instantly amazed and wanting to learn more. I also left thinking, how the heck did it take 5 months and 4 failed attempts to get me back to health? And that's when I knew I wanted to be a chiropractor. To be able to deal hope all the while simply releasing the life force which gives us all the ability to adapt and overcome. I became obsessed with innate intelligence, and the way in which the body is intricately woven and designed. Now I have the amazing opportunity to serve, educate and empower the Within Chiropractic community and I couldn't feel more blessed!
