Greetings from Dr. T:
For my entire life, I have wanted to help people become healthier. I decided at the age of two to be a nurse. By 17, I headed to college with nursing as my major. I fulfilled my dream of becoming a nurse, and for 12 years I worked in the critical care unit and the emergency room of a major hospital. I was able to work alongside the physicians, and I learned a lot about diagnosing and treating the ill and injured.
Patching people up was not what I wanted to do -- I wanted to find way to help people prevent illness and disease. I started looking at ways to do that and found Chiropractic. By reducing stress on the nervous system, I could actually help the body heal itself! Yay!
Since graduating from chiropractic college I did postgraduate training in Chiropractic Orthopedics, and I continued to receive education annually in subjects such as headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, intestinal health, and nutrition.
It is an honor to be able to help people feel great and find better health. Every patient is important to me and I apply all my skills to help each person get and stay well.
Dr. Thorburn is a Registered Nurse and a Doctor of Chiropractic. She also has advanced training in nutrition.
