CURRICULUM VITAE (3/7/05)
OUR MISSION STATEMENT:
TO DELIVER, BY THE GRACE OF GOD, QUALITY HEALTH AND IMPROVEMENT OF LIFE FOR A FAIR INVESTMENT IN MONEY AND TIME WITH A MINIMUM OF DRUGS AND/OR SURGERY.
THERES A DIFFERENCE IN LIVING AND LIVING WELL.
REASON FOR CHOOSING CHIROPRACTIC
My father has been a successful doctor of chiropractic since 1953. Naturally, as a child, I grew up knowing, for example, that a spinal adjustment was a much better and more effective alternative than an aspirin for a headache. I learned the effectiveness of chiropractic for maintenance of health and vitality. It is also my firm belief that chiropractic will be the dominant health care profession of the future because of the predominant dangers of drugs and surgery. It may not happen in my life time or my childrens life time, but men and women the world over are learning more and more each year that drugs and surgery are NOT the answer to good health and never will be. (However, drugs and surgery will always be needed and in demand for emergency or trauma care.)
I graduated from Fulton High School in north Knoxville, TN. in 1974. I took undergraduate courses at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, from 1974 to 1977. I obtained a Doctor of Chiropractic degree at Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis, MO., on Jan. 3, 1981. During my last two trimesters at Logan, I was on the Deans List. I am certified in Disability Impairment Rating. I am also certified by the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners. In addition, I have 25+ years of clinical experience in chiropractic health care. I am also self educated in the diagnostic technique of Applied Kinesiology.

I practiced chiropractic in Sevierville, TN. from Jan. 1981 to July 1985. From August 1985 to December 1988, I practiced as an associate chiropractor of Dr. W. E. Vanatta, D.C. in McMinnville, TN. From Jan. 1989 to November 1990, I practiced as an associate chiropractor of Dr. Leland Northcutt, D.C. in McMinnville. From November 1990 to Feb. 4, 2001 I practiced as sole proprietor of Warren Co. Chiropractic Center at 322 W. Colville St., McMinnville, TN. On Feb. 5, 2001, I moved to 900 N. Chancery St., McMinnville, TN. I also changed the name of my practice to Hurst Chiropractic Center. On Nov. 1, 2002, I moved to my present location at 477 N. Chancery St., Ste. D, McMinnville, TN.
I was born in Nashville, TN., on March 12, 1956, at Vanderbilt Hospital to Dr. Grady B. and Bobby Ann Hurst. My family moved to Knoxville, TN. in 1960. I grew up in the same house we first moved into at that time. I worked several years with a newspaper route before I began employment at the Krystal restaurant in Knoxville in 1972. In October 1977, I met Margaret Ann Campbell, who started her employment at the same Krystal I worked at, and we became engaged before I left for St. Louis, MO. to begin my education at Logan College of Chiropractic on Jan. 2, 1978. I returned to Knoxville on Jan. 28, 1978, to marry Margaret. Our first child, Paul Nathan, was born on April 19, 1979. After my graduation I returned to Knoxville where I lived as I commuted to my practice in Sevierville, TN. Amy Nicole was born at St. Marys Hospital, Knoxville, TN., on July 8, 1981, and Sarah Beth was born on May 30, 1983, at the University of Tennessee Hospital. I also enjoy fishing, reading, hunting, gardening, coin collecting, and most outdoor activities. I spend as much of my spare time as possible with my family. I grew up in the Church of Christ and my family worshipped at Arlington Church of Christ from 1985 until 2000. I am presently a member of the Bybee Branch Church of Christ in McMinnville, TN.
To do my best to help my neighbor to be healthier both physically and spiritually. In order to achieve this, my goals are to become more knowledgeable and proficient in the techniques I use; primarily Applied Kinesiology.
