When I was just a 19 year-old doing volunteer work in Israel, I was told my mom may not be alive by the time I got back. What else could I do but pray for a miracle? Epilepsy! Several severe grand mal seizures every day for months, and getting worse. A friend of Mom’s referred her to a chiropractor in town. The results weren’t immediate, but they were dramatic. Over the course of about a year, he brought her back to virtually perfect health. By the time I got back from a couple of years of service with the Baha’i Faith in east Africa, she was not only alive, but thriving. 19 years later, I still have a wonderful, healthy mother, thanks to chiropractic!

I was first introduced to chiropractic thanks to my dad, Dr. William Laughlin. While he was in chiropractic school and upon graduation, he would adjust my spine to help me stay healthy. I would bounce back quickly from illnesses, thanks to each adjustment! Following in my dad’s footsteps didn’t come right away. I attended Wichita State University in Wichita, Kansas and earned a Bachelor of Arts in Print Journalism. After graduation, I worked as a sportswriter for two years at the Hobbs News-Sun in Hobbs, New Mexico. It was a fantastic job, but due to the goals my wife Kathleen and I had at that time, I decided to take a new career path. We talked about me going back to school to become a chiropractor, and the rest is history! Read more»

I am one of the Practice Representatives for the Clinic. I plan and coordinate health fairs and special events, handle marketing, advertising and public relations, and teach our class called “How To Stay Young Your First 100 Years”. I also occasionally help patients with various therapies. The staff here is the most amazingly positive and caring group of people I have ever had the pleasure of working with. It touches my heart every day to witness people’s journey towards health, healing and relief from pain. I look forward to meeting you, being of service and watching your healing journey.
I assist in the business office. I love talking with our patients, hearing about what brought them to us and witnessing the progress they are making. I didn’t know much about chiropractic care until one of my children was diagnosed with several autoimmune disorders. After years of testing, research and medications a friend convinced her to see a chiropractor. Not only was chiropractic care able to help manage her pain, it also helped her through difficult pregnancies, pneumonia, kidney stones, and more. She now manages her disease with diet and chiropractic care and is currently training for a Triathlon. I can not even begin to tell you the difference this has made in her quality of life! Please come in and meet our amazing team!
My interest in fitness, exercise and health started as a student and then progressed to a profession as I became an instructor, coach, program director, general manager and trainer (of various ages, activities and facilities).
