Dr. Tim Warren with the same blue “Chiropractic”
flag he unfurled when he reached the top of Mt.
Everest in May.
Tim Warren, D.C., Davenport ’86, may not climb
every mountain, but he’s managed to get to the top
of four of the “Seven Summits”—the highest mountain
found on each continent.
“I started technical climbing in the
early 1990s and worked up to a
six-day climb of Mt. Ranier in
Washington State in 1998,” said
the 1986 Davenport Campus graduate
who practices in Warwick,
R.I. “On the summit of that great
technical peak, I set a goal to
climb a big mountain each year.”
A year later, Dr. Warren climbed
his first highest mountain, Mt.
Kilimanjaro, in Tanzania. After
two attempts, he then successfully
reached the summit of Mt. McKinley
in Denali, Alaska, in 2004.
In preparation for Mt. Everest,
he then went to the top of Mt.
Aconcagua in Argentina, the highest
in South America.
When tackling Mt. Everest in
Nepal in 2007, he had to turn
back after two-and-a-half months
due to a lung infection. But he
was back at it a year later when
he climbed the famous mountain
again on March 23, reaching the
top on May 24.
“I lost 20 pounds of muscle and
was a walking skeleton for a
month afterwards, but one with a
big smile on his face and thrilled
to be back in the office adjusting,”
he said. When not in the office or
climbing, Dr. Warren makes public
and corporate presentations using
climbing mountains as a metaphor
for successful healthy living.
