MEET THE PRACTITIONERS
DR. Terry Harmon
Dr. Terry Harmon B.S., D.C is a 1997 graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA. Dr. Harmon’s practice at Family Care Chiropractic Stony Brook in Louisville from 1997 until 2003, and then established ChiRho Chiropractic in Morganfield, KY in 2003 with a mission of helping as many people as possible function at their highest level of health and life –especially children!
Dr. Harmon’s life was first impacted by chiropractic as an infant. Dr. Harmon was a severely sick and colicky baby that was becoming more sick each day and after multiple trips to the pediatrician with no results his parents as a last resort took him to see Dr. Walter Ross in Silvis, IL. After his first adjustment Dr. Harmon was able to eat, sleep, and have bowel movements! From that moment on Dr. Harmon was a regular wellness patient of Dr. Ross’s and to this day considers Dr. Ross one of his greatest life mentors.
Another huge force behind Dr. Harmon’s desire to help people truly experience health and healing has been the sicknesses that he has seen so many of his loved ones suffer with. Starting with his mother battling cancer, to seeing his grandparents along with many aunts and uncles suffer from the likes of cancer, diabetes, dementia, and heart disease. These tragedies to this day have impacted Dr. Harmon and the ChiRho Chiropractic mission to deliver the most up to date scientific care to facilitate peak performance and healing.
Dr. Harmon has advanced training and certifications in nutrition, detoxification, strength training, spinal correction, and pediatrics. He was blessed to serve as a member of the United States Wellness Advisory Council and Peak Performance team for USA wrestling, judo, weightlifting and martial arts from 2008 until 2012. Dr. Harmon is the team chiropractor for Union County Wrestling.
Dr. Harmon has five amazing children (Kevin, Quinn, Tatum, Nile, and Palmer)! Dr. Harmon loves to spend time with his family, exercise, read, and spend as much time outdoors as possible! Lastly he loves the opportunity to bring to his patients the reality that as the bible says each of us is truly “…fearfully and wonderfully made” Psalms 139:14
