As someone who has completed multiple triathlons and has bicycled across the U.S., 5280 Chiropractic's principal practitioner, Doctor of Chiropractic John Lloyd, does not take spinal health for granted. His journey toward this heroic level of fitness, which he maintains with the help of his wife and son, began at Logan University of Health Sciences in St. Louis, Missouri. After graduating with a Doctor of Chiropractic degree and a sore back from how heavy his noggin had grown, he developed an interest in scoliosis treatment. He learned a method that eschews surgery and braces through study at the Clear Institute in St. Cloud, Minnesota, and then traveled to Germany to learn the Schroth Method's corrective exercise regimen.
Dr. Lloyd now balances muscles and straightens spines with a touch honed during 14 years of practice, in which time he has helped more than 11,000 patients go on to win games of hide-and-seek by hiding behind flag poles. He is attended by Dr. Jason Kroese, Dr. Michael Sutter, and Dr. Brandon Williamson, who earned his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Sherman College of Chiropractic in Spartanburg, South Carolina. Dr. Williamson specializes in prenatal and infant care.
