Dr. Tim Kesemann
At age 14 I was trying to keep up with the big boys at a local motocross track on a beat up old Yamaha. I went over a jump crooked and shot into the trees. I thought I was going to hit one. I didn’t but the bike did and I flew off at 30 mph. I went to the Emergency Room, they said nothing was broken or dislocated but I had no strength in my right shoulder. I went to an Orthopedist and he said do nothing for 3 months and I did. Then I started football and my shoulder went weak, again. In desperation my mother took me to a Chiropractor. He figured out what was wrong and went to work fixing it. It took about a year but the next football season I could play without pain and the sinus problems I had since a child also went away. I tried other jobs for a while but a career in chiropractic kept nagging at me. At age 24 I began the path to becoming a Chiropractor. I never thought of being a medical doctor because only chiropractic gave me my life back.
I received a bachelor’s degree from Columbia College in Columbia, Mo. I then went to Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA , the birthplace of chiropractic, graduating with a doctorate of chiropractic degree in 1989. During the last year of school at Palmer I was getting the flu and told a colleague I was going home. He asked if I had gotten adjusted for it (I always thought of chiropractic only for “pain” problems) I said “no”, he insisted so I let him adjust me, then I went home, to my dismay the next day I woke up feeling “normal” and off to school I went. This experience surprised me, yet intrigued me. Here I was in the last year of my chiropractic education and I still didn’t fully understand what chiropractic had to offer to health improvement. When I graduated I didn’t stop learning, I have over 2000 additional hours of continuing education. Being able to determine your problem and fix it is very important to me.
Odessa Chiropractic Center
I grew up in a small town (pop. 1800) and liked it but wanted to be closer to a bigger city so I picked Odessa in 1990. When I decided to become a doctor I chose to be a small town doctor you know; friendly, country wisdom, caring, concerned, intelligent, real. I’ve even made house calls. I thought I just needed to apply the golden rule and people would line up at the door. Then reality set in. People did not understand chiropractic; people were confused about health care vs. disease care.
