Chiropractic master still going strong

The thing that strikes you when you first speak with William Webb, D.C., Davenport ’51, is his spirit, vitality and amazing recall—including conversations with chiropractic greats Dr. B.J. Palmer and Dr. Major DeJarnette.

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 upon graduation.

“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.
