Dr. John Thomas, D.C.
Board Certified Sports Chiropractor, Dr. John Thomas, known by his patients as “The Running Doctor”, has amassed an amazing following of fans ranging from world-wide professional marathon runners, WNBA players, and college athletes, to celebrities in the film, TV, and music industries and of course everyone else in between. In practice since 1995 and involved with music since childhood, Dr. Thomas, a triathlete, marathon runner and music producer/voice-over talent, is very well known for his protocol called “Dr. Thomas’ Muscle Stripping Protocol” which was made popular through his role as team doctor for a Foot Solutions, Inc. International Marathon Team under the Direction of Head Coach Major Sue Bozgoz of the United States Army. He has also enjoyed much success in the music industry as a professional music producer, composer, jingle writer, voice-over talent and celebrity chiropractor.
Dr. Thomas has been practice for over 20 years and has owned and operated four multi-disciplinary clinics. He is most known for his Muscle Stripping Protocol and Full Body Detox Program. Many of the clinical trials during the developmental phases of Dr. Thomas’ Muscle Stripping Protocol were done with the consent of dozens of professional runners from all over the world. The proven efficacy of Dr. Thomas’ Muscle Stripping Protocol would not have been made possible without the valued input of some of the world’s most talented and internationally known marathon runners. Dr. Thomas' 4-Step Muscle Stripping Protocol is based around the premise that physical activity causes micro-tears in muscles. In response, the body forms scar tissue or adhesions as part of the healing process. Over time, muscles with adhesions become shorter, tighter and less flexible. These tight short muscles may stress joints, fracture bones, alter biomechanics and set the stage for the onset of arthritis. Dr. Thomas' 4-Step Muscle Stripping Protocol can prevent these injuries by breaking up adhesions in the muscle thereby allowing for subsequent elongation, improved biomechanics, range of motion, muscle power, speed, endurance, agility, flexibility and speedy recovery from training and competition.
Dr. Thomas has worked with various corporations to establish ergonomically sound workstations and workplace exercise regimens for their employees to decrease workplace apathy and sick leave. In this area of his career his greatest accomplishment was being award a contract by GA Power to provide this service to their call centers.
Dr. Thomas has also served the chiropractic profession and medical community by consulting his colleagues in the areas of practice development from the ground-up, integration and implementation of practice enhancing services such as non-surgical spinal decompression, Dr. Thomas’ very own Full Body Detoxification program, and various marketing strategies. A prolific public speaker, Dr. Thomas has done hundreds of public speaking engagements and seminars on various health related topics, most notable being his Full Body Detoxification Program. He teaches ways to eliminate harmful toxins out of the body for the prevention of disease with his Detoxification Program. In this area, Dr. Thomas has written and published many articles, newsletters, and booklets that provide solutions for those suffering from toxicity, poor immune response, obesity and disease. Dr. Thomas enjoys sharing this knowledge. His proven therapeutic methods are taught to other professionals in sports medicine and at workshops and seminars.
During an amazing time in his career, Dr. Thomas earned the opportunity to develop a full line of detoxification products for a sports nutrition company called Xyience. Xyience was the major sponsor of The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and many of the UFC fighter’s during that time. The product line was called, Dr. Thomas’ Detox Factor. After a year in development, per Dr. Thomas’ demand, it was later pulled out of premature production by a cease and desist order from Dr. Thomas’ attorney. Dr. Thomas ended the relationship with Xyience because the company would not conform to Dr. Thomas’ ethical requests to have all of the products in his product line bearing his name, tested for quality assurance by a third party testing facility prior to, during and after production.
After attaining certification in IDD Accuspina Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression from North American Medical and Manipulation Under Anesthesia, Dr. Thomas worked tirelessly with medical doctors in the area of manipulation under anesthesia to assist patients with severe joint fixation pathologies. He also educated neurosurgeons and orthopedic surgeons in his community on the efficacy of non-surgical spinal decompression and it’s 86% success rate at providing long-lasting relief to patients suffering with disc herniations, foraminal and spinal canal stenosis, facet syndrome, and sciatica. He has also consulted many doctors on self and practice promotion, practice management and marketing strategies.
His practice was selected by the City of Atlanta as a relief site for Hurricane Katrina victims. As an honorary community advocate, Dr. Thomas provided free school physicals and chiropractic care for dozens of displaced kids and their families. He has also penned numerous newspaper articles, newsletters and has recorded and published multiple informational CD’s and videos for free distribution to his audiences and patients as a public service.
