Dr. Matthew Thornton grew up in Moline, Illinois, just a few miles from where chiropractic was founded. It is there that he developed a love for chiropractic and the incredible results that so many people achieve through specific chiropractic care. Immediately upon graduating high school in Moline Dr. Matthew began an accelerated tract that was offered at Palmer College of Chiropractic to get his doctorate quicker.
While at Palmer he received a Bachelor’s degree in Science and eventually transferred to Palmer Florida in Port Orange Florida to be with his wife, Dr. Tiffany Thornton. Throughout his career at Palmer, Dr. Matthew attended countless seminars, embarked on chiropractic mission trips, and was president of a Chiropractic coaching program for students that helped to develop competent and confident doctors upon graduation. Dr. Matthew finished his Doctorate of Chiropractic at Palmer Florida which has equipped and empowered him to help patients get the best results with their health possible.
When taking care of his patients Dr. Matthew values individualized healthcare, rather than the traditional broad stroke approach. He and Dr. Tiffany build their practice on this premise: “No one cares how much you know, until they know how much you care.”
Because they are avid researchers Dr. Matthew and Dr. Tiffany are constantly providing the best care for their patients backed up by cutting edge research. This allows them to get to the root cause of your problem and get you results that previously wouldn’t have been possible.
Dr.Tiffany has had a heart for service ever since a young age. She’s traveled 7 different countries doing mission work, and she has actively been involved in local mission work here in Jacksonville ever since moving to the Duval area.
She majored in kinesiology with a concentration in neurology in her undergrad up in Boston at Gordon College. She graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic with her doctorate in 2012 and was awarded the Clinical Excellence Award. She has also since been awarded the Alumni of the Year award from he alma mater, the Medical Director of the Year award from the Naval Base in the Dominican Republic, and she was awarded Jacksonville’s top female doctor in 2018.
She has gone on to become certified in chiropractic biophysics. She also takes a special interest in the holistic approach to the health of her patients and their families which is why she founded and developed NUTRITION ON PURPOSE, which is an additional way she gives back to missions locally and abroad.
“After graduating from Palmer, I felt called to continue serving the people of the Dominican Republic. I completed an 8 month mission trip through Chiromission and served on the board for several years. I strive to meet patients where they are in their journey to wellness. I consider it a true honor to work with people from all walks of life and encourage them along their road to healing.I have been a licensed chiropractor since 2012 caring for people from hours old to over 99 years old. I have a passion for people, mothers, children, and healing for all generations, and giving God the glory.” -Tiffany Thornton D.C.
