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
“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.”
