Dr. Stephen Grooms
Dr. Grooms started learning about Chiropractic when he was in his High School while shadowing Dr. Wade Clingan in Prattville, AL.
“I was given the opportunity when I was entering high school to be part of a program developed by HOSA (Health Occupational Students of America). Our curriculum allowed selected students to leave campus and shadow various health professionals in our community. I was assigned the chiropractor and never looked back.”
Dr. Grooms earned a degree in Biology from the University of Alabama in Huntsville and his Doctorate of Chiropractic from Life University in Marietta, Ga.
Dr. Grooms was active growing up and continues that trend today. He played and coached soccer collegiately and continues to coach locally with NOW Soccer Academy in Huntsville with his good friend Norbert Webley.
"Chiropractic care helped me stay healthy while playing soccer. I watched many teammates incur injuries as a result of poor nutrition, inadequate coaches who overworked their players, and poor leadership. Because of those experiences, I decided to get involved in coaching. I've been sending my players to quality chiropractors ever since I started and will continue to do so. Norbert runs a world class soccer academy. Coaching alongside Norbert keeps me active and helps me stay involved in the community. Not only is he invested in the skills and soccer abilities of the players he coaches, but also in their health. His goal is always to do what is best for his players and he understands the importance of being adjusted regularly. I'm blessed to be a part of his staff, helping to keep his players and their families healthy. Chiropractic is proven to improve quality of life and prevent injuries BEFORE they occur. Obviously, some injuries are not preventable, and I am available and willing to provide care to anyone in need. I believe that all people should have access to chiropractic care, and I hope to provide that for all of the families with whom I am involved."
Dr. Grooms has been passionate about chiropractic since he received his first adjustment and has been actively studying and learning about the profession for over 15 years. He has a truly unique story with experience in over 20 chiropractic offices and clinics.
"Ever since I was adjusted by Dr. Clingan, I began developing my philosophy. Many great chiropractors have allowed me to shadow and learn from them. Dr. Clingan does amazing work at his clinic in Prattville and was the first chiropractor I ever met. Fast forward 10 years later and I was introduced to Dr. Gerald Johnson in Madison. Dr. Johnson has taught me things that only experience can prepare someone for. I'm forever grateful for all he has done for me. He raises the bar for chiropractic care with his knowledge and expertise. I've worked with many amazing doctors and I am blessed to have met them all. I am happy that God put so many great people in my life to guide me."
