Dr. Teran @ CopperWell Chiropractic
I grew up in a small town in central Indiana. I was in National Art Honors Society, National Honors Society, Top 10, as well as a three sport varsity athlete. My involvement in softball, volleyball, track, and basketball allowed me to earn a basketball scholarship to Ball State University in Muncie Indiana where I studied pre-medicine and chemistry.
While at Ball State, I was involved in genetics club, athletes in action, coached local volleyball and basketball teams, as well giving back to my community with several service events. I suffered a shoulder injury that required surgery and intense rehabilitation. I was let down by how informal and distant some of the medical doctors I was involved with were. Then during a sociology class I was first introduced to alternative medicines and thus the world of chiropractic.
After a car accident, I decided to visit my local chiropractor and was amazed at the variety of injuries that could be treated other than “my back pain,” and wished I would have explored this option earlier for my other sports injuries I had throughout my career.
My personal experiences with the ‘medical world’ as well as chiropractic lead me to research Logan College of Chiropractic program as well as their sports rehabilitation program. I moved to St. Louis Missouri and enrolled in the chiropractic and sports rehabilitation programs concurrently.
Upon graduation, I decided to follow my intuitive instinct and move to the Herriman, Riverton area where I knew no one, but look forward to becoming a permanent part of my new home.
