Meet the Thompson Family Chiropractic Team!
Dr. Tad and Lydia Thompson met at just their first week of college and have been inseparable since! A year into Tad's time at Chiropractic College is when they first had the idea to open Thompson Family Chiropractic together. They have always loved visiting Colorado and the overall healthy lifestyle that came with it. Dr. Tad and Lydia have spent the last couple of years gaining experience and knowledge in preparation for Thompson Family Chiropractic, and are thrilled to finally be able to provide care and serve the community!
Dr. Tad Thompson
Dr. Tad is a second-generation Chiropractor from small town Phillipsburg, Kansas. He has been passionate about Chiropractic from a young age because he has seen its positive impact in his own life and the people he loves. Growing up, he was very active - involved in baseball, basketball, football, wrestling, track and swim team! Tad was constantly at his dad's chiropractic office getting adjustments and learning about the profession at a young age.
After high school, Dr. Tad received a scholarship to play college football at Bethany College (where he met his wife, Lydia!) and the following year he transferred to Cleveland Chiropractic College in Kansas City where he received his Bachelors Degree in Human Biology while congruently receiving his Doctorate of Chiropractic.
Dr. Tad specializes in Neurologically-based Chiropractic care. He holds the Advanced Certified Proficiency credential in Torque Release Technique, which is a gentle, specific, results-driven technique. He also holds the Webster Technique certification, which is specific for pregnant women. He is a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, and specializes in providing care for pediatric patients.
In his free time, Dr. Tad enjoys hiking with his wife and their dog, Mambo. He also has a knack for baking bread and grilling, and loves creating and perfecting new recipes!
Lydia was born and raised in Tipton, Kansas, where she attended the smallest private Catholic High School in the state! She is very proud of her small town roots and the values instilled in her from childhood. Growing up, she was also very involved in sports, taking part in volleyball, basketball, track, dance, and cheerleading. She later went on to become a cheerleader at Bethany College in Lindsborg, KS, which is where she met her future husband, Dr. Tad!
Lydia majored in Biology at Bethany College, and continued her education there for two years before transferring to Cleveland University and graduating summa cum laude with a Human Biology degree. After graduating, she knew she was interested in the healthcare field, but was unsure of which career path to choose. When Dr. Tad suggested opening up Thompson Family Chiropractic, it was the perfect idea! Lydia worked as a scribe at an ophthalmology office until Dr. Tad graduated and they could begin their dream of opening Thompson Family Chiropractic together!
In her free time, Lydia loves to stay active by hiking, strength training, yoga, and baking! She is very passionate about holistic health, which is why she is very grateful to have a husband who is a chiropractor. She regularly takes advantage of the wellness care she receives from Dr. Tad, especially now that she is pregnant with their first child! Under his specialized care, Lydia has had a healthy and pain-free pregnancy thus far!
