Dr. Josh Koenig
Chiropractic Helped My Migraines
Playing football in high school Dr. Josh experienced some injuries that left him with painful migraines. After months of taking medication without any relief, his mother convinced him to see a local chiropractor. His migraines disappeared after a few weeks of consistent chiropractic adjustments and he hasn’t had one since. That was over fifteen years ago.
Treating the Cause of Pain
Before becoming a family chiropractor, Dr. Josh had been working in a pharmacy for three years. He would see the same revolving door of people come in for medication refills each month. He was alarmed and concerned by the use of prescriptions to cover up their symptoms and not fix the deeper problem. By learning more from his chiropractor, Josh discovered how chiropractic treatments address the root cause of pain to give real life changes. The treatment of diseases without the use of drugs to simply mask the pain sparked the desire to pursue a career in chiropractic care.
Trained to Analyze Health
Dr. Josh attended Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa, which is known in chiropractic circles as the “Fountainhead of Chiropractic.” The college was named after it founder, D.D. Palmer, the inventor of chiropractic treatment. At the Palmer College of Chiropractic, Dr. Josh learned about the motion of each muscle and joint to enable him to analyze and adjust specific areas of the body. By working in a community outreach clinic during his time at Palmer, he was able to treat patients who couldn’t afford chiropractic care at the school clinic.
Dr. Josh was also chosen to join a trip that opened a free clinic in India, where he treated children and adults at no charge. The group spread chiropractic care to more than 10,000 people!
Enjoying Our Local Area
In Dr. Josh’s spare time, he plays intramural sports including football, softball and basketball. He tries to stay as active as possible outside of his family chiropractic practice. Originally from Fort Dodge, Iowa, Dr. Josh fell in love with Plymouth after moving there to work with a number of well-known chiropractors in the Hartford, CT area. He enjoys fishing in our beautiful ocean and hiking in Vermont and New Hampshire. In the summer, you can find him on White Horse Beach, soaking up the sun.
Supporting our local community is important to Dr. Josh. He is a big brother in the Boys and Girls Club. He also serves on the local board of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America and the YMCA in [PJ]. Dr. Josh started Hope for the Holidays, a charity that partners local businesses to offer support to a local family in our community in December.
