Dr. Tom Wessel, glenwood chiropractor
Dr. Tom grew up in the small Northern Wisconsin town of Birnamwood. As a young child, Dr. Tom was introduced to chiropractic when he noticed how profoundly chiropractic care helped his father in his ability to work and stay active. He knew very early on, he wanted to impact the health of others the same way. After receiving his undergraduate degree in Biology at the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point, Dr. Tom went on to pursue a Doctorate of Chiropractic at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa.
Outside of the office you can find him enjoying time with friends and family, on the trails, or camping with his dogs, Smokey and Bandit.
Dr. Tom pursued many additional courses outside of the required curriculum while at Palmer College through the Holder Research Institute, Chiropractic Mastery, and the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. Through these courses Dr. Tom earned Advanced Proficiency Certification in Torque Release Technique, MC2 Certification, as well as Webster Certification, which is an advanced certification that instructs doctors how to specifically care for prenatal and postpartum mothers. This equips Dr. Tom with the ability to help people of all ages from infants to the elderly.
I am from Central Asia and a total adventure junkie! From a summer evening walk with lightening bugs to treacherous mountain climbing, my heart loves the simple beauty and complexity of nature. I started principled chiropractic care in 2015 -after being in so much pain I couldn’t walk- and it has reversed my health journey! I can now continue adventuring and have learned so much about how the body works and the importance of taking care of it. I love working in chiropractic because I can share my excitement for knowledge and healing, and serve people in an impactful way!

Favorite Food: Pizza
Favorite Rec Activity: Hiking
I am from West Michigan and I enjoy many seasonal hobbies. I love to read, watch movies, and play board games during the colder months, and I enjoy running, biking, and hiking during the warmer months. Before I started Principled Chiropractic Care, I had severe low back pain every day, and now I don’t have any problems whatsoever! I love working in chiropractic because I get the opportunity to educate people on what chiropractic is and show them how principled chiropractic care can change their lives, like it changed mine!

The many places I have called home include Texas, Germany, the United Kingdom, Tennessee, Virginia, East Africa, and now Colorado. I enjoy being outside with my family and reading nerdy books. I am fascinated by humans and their ability to grow, change, and heal. Being part of the Trailhead Chiropractic team allows me to pursue health in my own life and assist others in addressing their own health concerns through principled chiropractic care.
