Dr. Tommy John Performance and Healing Center
Dr. Tommy's new book, "Minimize Injury, Maximize Performance" is a holistic solution to the athlete's overall health. The primary goal at the Center is to provide athletes and their entire families with integrative, individualized care plans and treatment to improve their quality of life by reducing physical and emotional pain from injury and aging and allow the greatest expression of the life of every human athlete. With Master Degrees in Health and Exercise Science from Furman University, Dr. Tommy John brings over 17 years of health experience to the table. At completion of his studies Dr. Tommy played professional baseball for two years with teams such as the Schaumburg Flyers, Tyler Roughnecks and signed a free agent contract with the LA Dodgers where he was invited to spring training. After his career was abruptly ended from a rare infection in his throwing shoulder, Dr. Tommy developed his own baseball performance company providing over 11,000 baseball training sessions for baseball enthusiasts from ages six to thirty. Additionally, he expanded his practice of personal training, sports performance training and rehabilitation of all types of soft tissue injuries. Dr. Tommy was drawn to chiropractic because he realized there was a higher element missing from the healing, performance process and proper function of the human body in the innate intelligence and the nervous system: brain, brain stem and spinal cord. That paramount observation led him to obtain his Doctor of Chiropractic Degree from Life University, (a 4-year program), in Marietta, Georgia, where he graduated Magna Cum Laude. As the son of renowned Major League Baseball pitcher Tommy John who played in the Major Leagues for 26 seasons and was the first person to comeback in 1974 from the revolutionary surgery named the Tommy John Surgery, it is not surprising that Dr. Tommy developed a passion for proper healing and physical function as he witnessed firsthand the outcomes of injury, innovation and principled healing. Dr. Tommy owns and operates Dr. Tommy John Performance and Healing Center in San Diego, California. The primary goal there is to provide athletes and their entire families with integrative, individualized care plans and treatment to improve their quality of life by reducing physical and emotional pain from injury and aging and allow the greatest expression of life of every human athlete. When Dr. Tommy isn't seeing patients at his performance and healing studio in San Diego, his passion lies in public speaking. He has been featured at sports injury symposiums, medical conferences and for local high school and youth league organizations. These speaking opportunities afford him the ability to enlighten and help thousands more athletes and their parents navigate youth sports safely and healthfully.
