Dr. Webb originally pursued chiropractic after defeating
paralyzing meningitis as a child thanks to
chiropractic care. He went on to obtain his postdoctoral
Fellowship in Applied Clinical Nutrition.
Today, Dr. Webb continues to maintain a very successful
practice in Altamonte Springs, Fla. He relies
on his associate, Jessica Mitchell, D.C., Port
Orange ’13, for his chiropractic adjustments. Dr.
Webb’s grandson, Perry, is currently a first-year
student at Palmer’s Port Orange campus. The expectation
is that Perry will take over the practice
“I’ve cut down to about 60 patients a week,” says
Dr. Webb, who at 84 years old still enjoys playing
tennis and riding his motorcycle on his days off.
He attributes his longevity to breathing exercises
that also help him to maintain his chiropractic adjustments
for a longer period. “We don’t get
enough oxygen,” he says.
