Dr. Courtney Durrum
Hello, I’m Dr. Courtney Durrum. I am a wife, a mother of three beautiful children and a Doctor of Chiropractic. I have been honored to serve my hometown community of Mt. Pleasant and the surrounding area since 2000. I am a born and raised Mt. Pleasant hometown girl, a 1994 honor graduate of MPHS, attended NTCC for two years of undergraduate studies, and a 1999 graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA. When I’m not caring for my patients, you can find me either supporting one of my children in their many activities, or personally running the rodeo & barrel racing circuit.
When asked how or why I chose chiropractic, my answer is always the same, “I never considered anything but chiropractic.” It has always been and will always be what I am meant to do. I was 8 years old when we discovered I had the ‘gift’ of touch & I found incredible joy in helping others to feel better. Since that time I’ve dedicated my life to honing those skills & helping others re-discover the joy of a healthy life of abundance.
As a Chiropractor, I believe I am truly serving God and fulfilling my purpose and calling in life. I have committed myself to constantly growing and learning in order to provide my patients the very best care possible. I also ‘live’ the lifestyle I teach. As a chiropractor I have found that my duties go far beyond being a doctor to also being a teacher, coach, mentor, prayer warrior and friend to my patients.
My approach to chiropractic is fairly simple: remove the nerve interference and allow the body to heal itself as God designed it to. I believe it is of utmost importance to work in cooperation with the natural healing systems God put in place rather than attempting to override or mask pain and symptoms with drugs and medications. In order for anyone to truly be healthy they must have a healthy nervous system… The only way to have a healthy nervous system is to have a healthy spine. Our body’s require complete, clear – 100% communication between the brain and all body organs and systems. Most pain, sickness & diseases can be traced back to the region of spinal injury and nerve interference.
I am available for speaking engagements of any sort: personal, clubs, church groups etc. If I can be of any assistance to you please do not hesitate to contact me.
