Early Childhood Laid the Foundation
Dr. Terry is a native Iowan. He grew up in an agricultural town in Northwest Iowa, just about the size of Warsaw. He often jokes with patients that he traded one small town for another!
It was as a child, in rural Iowa, that Dr. Terry received his first chiropractic adjustment. His visits with a local chiropractor weren’t for the types of conditions many people associate with chiropractic care – like back pain or headaches. Instead, Dr. Terry had an open ulcer on his foot that hadn’t healed with traditional treatments, but healed within days after receiving chiropractic care. He also contracted mononucleosis as a child, but it too resolved shortly under chiropractic care.
These experiences were tucked in Dr. Terry’s memory, and influenced his choices as he grew.
Getting off on the Right Foot
After high school in Benson, Minnesota, Dr. Terry embarked upon a formal education. He attended college at Moorhead State University in Moorhead, Minnesota and graduated with a major in biology and a minor in chemistry.
By that time, he knew that he wanted to be a chiropractor, and chose to attend Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. In 1997, he graduated alongside his soon-to-be-wife – both earning honors.
He and Dr. Dawn (Cox) Daniels married within months of their graduation in 1997, moved to Buffalo, and worked as associate chiropractors with established field doctors. Today, they have been in private practice together in Warsaw since 1999.
Outside the Office
Dr. Terry and Dr. Dawn have two school-aged children – Courtney and Carson, who are two years apart in age.
Dr. Terry is an avid cyclist and health enthusiast. “I see myself as a role model for my patients in terms of health and fitness. I feel it’s important for me to walk what I talk.” Keep your eyes peeled for him very early in the morning and you might catch him out on his regular 5 a.m. fitness ride!
Dr. Terry also enjoys reading and considers himself to be a lifelong learner. He enjoys keeping up with the latest advances in chiropractic and health care, as well as reading history, personal growth books and biographies.
