Meet the Doctor

Dr. Chad Thornton (Owner, Lead Chiropractor)

Dr. Chad has been working at our clinic since April, 2011. A long-time associate for Dr. Rob Rosenbaum, the original founder of Crosby Chiropractic Center, he took over full-time upon Dr. Rob's retirement at the end of 2019. Prior to 2011, Dr. Chad worked at several successful clinics in the Greater Houston area, gleaning experience and gaining an appreciation for various styles and techniques in order to bring the very best to Crosby, TX. After obtaining two Associates Degrees and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Human Biology, he earned his Doctor of Chiropractic Degree from Texas Chiropractic College in 2006. Having been in Mu Alpha Theta (undergrad honor society) and continuing into Omega Psi (graduate honor society), Dr. Chad always worked to stay at the top of his class, asking the right questions to his professors then so that he'd have the right answers for his patients now.

Dr. Chad comes from a large family full of Chiropractors and is a devout Christian. He is also somewhat of a "technology geek" and loves his Apple products and gaming time. Whether it is talking about the latest gadget, conservative values, or the latest movie he's sure to have an opinion. But above all, he cherishes spending quality time with his lovely wife, Shannon, and their three children. (And he is always receptive to any words of wisdom and advice from our more experienced patients that have had lasting marriages and joy-filled families themselves!)

Dr. Thornton has also obtained an advanced certification in extremity adjusting. This enables him to better help patients in turn with their pain and issues involving the shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees, ankles, TMJ, and ribs. We are grateful to have Dr. Chad serving Crosby, TX, and the surrounding areas of Atascocita, Kingwood, Dayton, Huffman, Highlands, Mont Belvieu, Channelview, Sheldon, and even Baytown, Whether your commute is near or far, he appreciates our communities and the choices available. As such, he pledges to continue the great legacy of Crosby Chiropractic Center to be Solution-Focused, Patient-Centered, and Convenience-Driven.
