Dr. Pat (Patrick Morris, DC) was born and raised in Northern Illinois where he in turn chose to raise his family. A two sport athlete in high school & college (soccer and swimming) he has always had a passion for an active lifestyle. While playing College Soccer, Dr. Pat was diagnosed with a spondylolisthesis in his lower back leading to back pain and right sciatica that made it difficult to participate in athletics. After visiting with the local Medical Doctors and receiving pain medication but no solution, he sought the help of a local Chiropractor. After a thorough evaluation and a series of manipulations, he was back playing sports full time and pain free. After graduating from Blackburn college he decided that he wanted to pursue a career in Chiropractic to help others the way he had been helped and enrolled at the National College of Chiropractic. Throughout his 25 plus year career, Dr. Pat has delivered his patients the highest level of conservative, non-invasive physical medicine including chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture, physiotherapy and rehabilitative therapies. When not caring for patients Dr. Pat enjoys spending time with his three adult children, running with his two Huskies, and spending time outside with friends and family.
