Meet Dr. Thomas Schmidt

Chiropractor Woodbury, Dr. Thomas Schmidt

A Love of Chiropractic Care

Dr. Thomas Schmidt’s interest in anatomy began at a young age. He also saw his grandfather receive chiropractic adjustments after being affected by sciatica. Dr. Schmidt’s grandfather was able to return to a healthy farming lifestyle with the help of chiropractic.

Dr. Schmidt had been considering becoming a surgeon before his career decision to become a chiropractor. Seeing his grandfather’s successful return to health naturally, without having to take injections or have spinal surgery, helped Dr. Schmidt decide to enter the chiropractic profession.

Training and Qualifications

Dr. Schmidt’s education began at St. Cloud State University. He studied pre-medicine while there and joined the Husky football team as the student manager and assistant to the coaching staff, he played on a championship intramural basketball team and was a member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
