Meet Dr. BJ Rumph

Born into Chiropractic

Dr. BJ’s name is in honor of BJ Palmer, the developer of chiropractic. From this start in life, it’s no surprise that he knew he wanted to be a chiropractor. During his years in school, he saw kids that took medications and were still often unwell. Though at the time he felt jealous of the children who got to take sick days, he soon figured out that chiropractic care had given him an advantage.

With a want to improve other people’s lives, he followed in his father and sister’s footsteps and decided to become a chiropractor.

Earning a Doctor of Chiropractic

Dr. BJ attended Life University in Marietta, Georgia. While there, he had a life-changing experience thanks to a friend who brought their child in. This friend, though a fellow student, thought chiropractors were for adults who had neck or back pain. He brought in his child on the way to a doctor’s appointment.

The boy was lactose intolerant and had never had an actual bowel movement. He was on prescription medications, including Ritalin. Dr. BJ suggested to his friend that the child get an adjustment, but the friend didn’t understand how chiropractic could help.

A teacher evaluated the boy, took an X-ray and gave him an adjustment. Later that day, the boy had his first bowel movement. Two days later, his school reported the child was doing well, had stopped crying and being irritable and was a happy child. Witnessing this success has stuck with Dr. BJ to this day.

He sees all ages of patients, from newborns to senior citizens.
