About

Dr. Tad Norris

After suffering from headaches, dizziness and memory issues because of numerous concussions throughout his hockey career and finding no relief,  Dr. Tad gave Johnson Spinal Care a chance to change his health. After his first NUCCA correction the fog cleared and he found sustained relief from his symptoms for the first time.

It had such a profound impact that it changed his career path from physical therapy to becoming a NUCCA doctor. Dr. Tad feels blessed and honored to be able to give the same life changing care to his patients.
