Sherrie Thompson, DC
Dr. Sherrie Thompson is the newest addition to the Life Within team. Dr. Sherrie grew up in Jacksonville, Florida and graduated valedictorian of her high school class at Trinity Christian Academy. She continued her education at the University of Florida with a major in Nutritional Sciences. She then earned her Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Palmer College of Chiropractic Florida. Yearning for a change of scenery, she drove across the country with her fiancé, William, and their fur baby, Einstein, to join the San Diego community.
It was during Dr. Sherrie’s undergraduate career that her mother, Carrie E. Thompson fell ill due to an accident at work that was complicated by the effects of decades of uncontrolled Type 2 Diabetes. Dr. Sherrie watched, helpless, as countless doctors pushed medications, surgeries, and injections that only further complicated her mother’s condition. The physicians only masked the pain and did not address the underlying conditions. Carrie suffered from numerous ailments such as peripheral neuropathy, amputations, ulcers, blindness, and recurring infections including necrotizing fasciitis and osteomyelitis; all ultimately resulting in multiple organ failures. Ms. Carrie E. Thompson unfortunately passed on August 15, 2015.
Dr. Sherrie’s drive stems from the hope that her mother’s suffering was not in vain. Dr. Sherrie shares, “It may be too late for my own mother, but I am just in time for so many others.” Her passion is to educate and encourage a healthy chiropractic lifestyle, one free of drugs, invasiveness, and disease.
While in chiropractic school, Dr. Sherrie experienced chiropractic transforming the lives of those with Diabetes, stroke induced paralysis, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Sciatica, as well as sleep and digestive challenges. During her chiropractic career, she has specialized in varied techniques including: Neuro Emotional Technique, Activator, Functional Neurology, pediatrics, and nutrition.
Dr. Sherrie is thrilled to join the Life Within team and aspires to serve the masses through love and chiropractic care.
