Dr. Jonathan Eddy
Hey everyone! My name is Dr Jonathan Eddy, a CHIROPRACTOR. Here’s a little bit about me...I was born in the state of Vermont: the home of farms, skiing resorts, and just an all around great hometown feel! So naturally, growing up I spent a lot of time outdoors, playing sports, on the slopes, and A LOT of hard work on a horse farm.
My father was a musician and one day when he was loading his equipment, his back went out. He had a very difficult time standing, sitting, moving, and yep you guessed it...playing music! He tried everything...icing, over the counter medication, prescription medication, and the pain persisted. Thankfully, after a friend watched him suffer for too long, he suggested that my father see a Chiropractor. Chiropractic had an almost immediate effect on my father...back pain gone, playing music back! Chiropractic had such a life-restoring impact on my father that he decided to change careers determined to be able to have that same life-restoring impact on people.
While my father was practicing, I was working in the construction field. It was a hard-laborious job, but it allowed me to work with my hands which seemed like a good fit at the time. After witnessing the daily miracles at my father’s Chiropractic clinic, and more importantly seeing how much joy my father had in helping others, I too decided to change careers and began my chiropractic journey.
Even though my father’s introduction to chiropractic was back pain, I spent enough time around his clinic to fully understand the power of chiropractic. He had patients experience great improvements in things like allergies, digestion, energy levels, focus, breathing difficulties, hormones, ADHD, acid-reflux, and countless others!! He shared with me the true power of chiropractic and because of that, I knew I wanted to go to where it all started, the fountainhead, the birthplace of chiropractic, Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA.
Another reason I chose Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA was the specific technique I knew I wanted to master, the Gonstead technique. The Gonstead technique begins with the body's structural foundation and believes that maximum balance and stability in the spinal column may be achieved when the pelvis, vertebrae, and legs are level. Doctor’s interested in mastering this technique, like myself, go to the The Gonstead Clinic in Mt. Horeb, Wisconsin.
Upon completing school I started practicing with my father in 2017 in Charlottsville, Va. I can honestly say that it was everything I had hoped for... getting to know patients, being part of their lives, spending time with my father, and most importantly... witnessing “miracles”. You see, most people would call them miracles, but us...we know what happens when the body functions the way it is designed and your nervous system is free of interference. So while we never get tired of seeing people’s health drastically improve with chiropractic care, we aren’t surprised.
I relocated to Fairfax City in 2020 and am so incredibly excited to be a part of Palmercare Chiropractic and the Fairfax City Community. I look forward to meeting you soon!
