Hello, I’m Dr. Howard Boos. My degree is DC, which stands for Doctor of Chiropractic. I am not a medical doctor, nor do I pretend to be one. I absolutely love the practice of chiropractic and I hope that this communicates to each and every one of my patients.
I guess you could say that I was born a chiropractor. My father was a doctor of chiropractic as were three of my uncles and two cousins. As a matter of fact, my son-in-law is also a doctor of chiropractic. My wife likes to say that, though we didn’t birth a chiropractor, at least we could marry one into the family! It’s a source of pride that chiropractic is now a third generation family tradition.
Education and Chiropractic College
I am an “Okie from Muskogee”. Most of my school-aged years were spent in Tulsa. I attended Barnard, Wilson, Bird, and Memorial and, afterwards, attend Oral Roberts University for pre-med classes. I received my chiropractic degree from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa… which is convenient because unbeknownst to me, that’s where my wife-to-be just happened to be living. Palmer is the same chiropractic college my father and uncles attended in the 1950s. It is significant to me that I walked the same halls and sat in the same classrooms that my dad and uncles used as they learned the philosophy, art, and science from Drs. B.J. and Mabel Palmer, the developers of chiropractic.
Chiropractors Remove Interference To Your Body’s Own Inborn Healing Potential
Whether you have had the direct experience, yet, or not, your body has a greater capacity to heal than you have ever been led to believe —as long as there’s no interference. That’s where my profession comes in: Chiropractors work consistently to do just one thing and that’s to remove interference to your body’s own inborn healing potential. Nothing satisfies me more than watching someone get his or her life back, again, after silently wondering, “Is is going to be like this forever? Am I going to have to suffer like this for the rest of my life?” I am very proud of my profession and chiropractic’s ability to assist people in regaining their health.
Chiropractic is my Hobby
My main hobby is my work which may sound boring or seem to indicate I’m a workaholic, but it’s what I live to do. If I’m not in the office practicing chiropractic or out of town teaching about chiropractic, I’m on the radio talking about chiropractic. Please feel free to tune each Sunday at 9 a.m. for “Living Well LIVE” on AM 740, FM 102.3 News Talk KRMG. Even out of town, you can access my live broadcasts at KRMG.com live streaming. If you can’t tune into my Sunday morning show live, I am pleased to offer you access to my Living Well podcasts.
I have been known to go on a sailing vacation, occasionally, and have a fondness for the ocean. If I can’t reach the beach, you’ll find me flying drones or riding my electronic Boosted board. My wife and I have three grown kids: Ethan who is married and living in Bahrain with his wife, Tiffany, daughter, Berlin and son, Epic Hart. Claire, our oldest daughter, is married to another Tulsa chiropractor, Dr. Matt, and they have two girls, Ellis and Evi, and a newbie addition, son, John Avery. Our youngest, Holly, currently works as our in-house Lifestyle Consultant while living 15 minutes from the beach in Los Angeles. She helps patients via FaceTime and Skype! Our children have always shared our chiropractic lifestyle even half way around the world.
Living the Chiropractic Lifestyle
I’m not only a chiropractic “employee”, I’m also a chiropractic patient, as is every member of my family. My favorite chiropractor was my father. He passed on several years ago, but the great memories of his weekly care are still present. As odd as it may sound to most folks, I adjusted each of my children the very day of their births. If I couldn’t receive regular chiropractic care, I don’t know what I would do.
My experience as a doctor and years as a chiropractic patient prove to me that any living thing with a spine and nerve system will absolutely benefit from chiropractic care. More importantly, if you suffer from vertebral subluxations (a $2 term for spinal bones stuck out of proper alignment causing Nerve Impingement Syndrome) and fail to have them corrected, you will never experience excellent health. I hope I someday have the opportunity to sit down knee to knee with you and find out your health concerns and goals. If I think I can help, I’ll tell you, and if I think I can’t help you, I’ll tell you that, too.
