John Theeck, D.C., Port Orange ’09, is transforming the health of hundreds of families at his Legacy Clinic of Chiropractic. Dr. Theeck’s clinic typifies the increasing number of successful health-care providers located in The Villages, Fla., an adult retirement community. Legacy Clinic has been so successful that Dr. Theeck has had to double its size.

It was in the late 1980s that Dr. Theeck, then 12 years old, first visited his grandparents in The Villages and dedicated his life to opening a practice there. Today “Dr. John” is helping the residents by teaching them how to achieve true health and healing through maintaining a healthy spine and living a healthy lifestyle.

He completed his undergraduate education at Eastern Michigan University then continued his passion for maximum health and wellness by earning his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Palmer’s Port Orange campus.

“The human body is a complex structure, and at times it takes assistance from other healthcare professionals to give our patients the best care available,” he says. “In return, medical doctors have gained respect for the chiropractic care we provide and understand the powerful benefits of chiropractic.”

“My education at Palmer College has given me the confidence to be prepared for all medical conditions and to properly collaborate with other medical professionals as needed,” he adds. “When serving the community, I never know what condition is going to present next. I always have a close network of medical doctors to assist when needed.”
