Dr. Tony Vu Pham was accepted and attended Nursing School at the University of Texas at Arlington. He wanted to pursue something more hands on and fulfilling. He wanted a deeper level of care for his patients. As life would have it, he discovered Chiropractic while getting treatment from a Chiropractic Intern and decided to take on this new adventure to help those around him - especially athletes.
He went on to graduate from Parker University in Dallas, TX with a Doctorate’s degree in Chiropractic. He knows a multitude of techniques including the Gonstead System, Diversified, Webster, Upper Cervical, and is continuing his education in Active Release Technique (ART) through Dr. Tabassum Ali. He hopes to be certified in this technique in the near future.
