Dr. Jean Gibson, M.S., D.C., received her bachelor’s degree from SMU in Dallas, and her master’s degree specializing in exercise physiology from North Texas State University in Denton, TX. She taught school at both the junior high and college level, until a ruptured disc in her back in 1988 changed the course of her life and career goals.
A neurosurgeon recommended back surgery but Dr. Gibson didn’t want to have such an invasive procedure. She tried an alternative – Chiropractic. She fully recovered with no limitations, so she returned to school, earning a B.S. in anatomy and a Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Parker College in Dallas. She also received certification in Acupuncture.
Dr. Gibson moved to Fayetteville in 1993 and opened Gibson Chiropractic, offering Chiropractic care and Acupuncture. She then added Colon Hydrotherapy to her practice in 2002, as a way to help her patients with detoxification. Colonics cleanse the colon by removing toxic material, which in turn improves the assimilation of nutrients.
In 2010 Dr. Gibson was trained in the use of Neurological Stress Reduction Therapy (NSRT) by BioVeda Technologies. In 2011, she was certified in the use of the Koren Specific Technique (KST) by Dr. Tedd Koren.
