Meet Dr. Bruce Godfrey
I always thought chiropractors were just like any other kind of doctor.
Drs. Bruce and Kate Godfrey
Chiropractors helped me through the pain of crashing my bike when I was kid, then again when I was the passenger in five separate car accidents during high school and college. I should have chosen friends who could drive!
When I was deciding what to do when I grew up, I looked up what chiropractors do. I found the natural approach to health care appealed to me. That’s when I decided to become a chiropractor.
I didn’t realize until part way through chiropractic school that I had chosen a career path that would be such a challenge! The greatest rewards come when a patient realizes an adjustment is not just about pain relief, but can be a way live life to the fullest!
A Chiropractic Education
Since I spent my childhood in St. Louis, Logan College of Chiropractic was a natural choice. I still had friends there and was happy to re-visit my childhood home. During school, I was especially challenged by Gross Anatomy. It fascinated me to see how intricately the body is put together. In fact, I became a teaching assistant and helped new students learn anatomy for two years. That experience prepared me well for the teaching aspect of being a doctor. My family settled in Omaha, so we chose to start our career here. We were very glad we did when children started arriving!
I’m Committed to Chiropractic Care
My wife, Dr. Kate, and I met in the Logan College Gross Anatomy lab. Helping each other learn turned to dating, and eventually marriage. We’re still at our best when we find a common interest to pursue, like making our yard into an edible garden. Our goal is for every tree, shrub and plant to produce food for our family. We want our three kids to develop a love for the outdoors and an appreciation for how we fit into nature. If it involves camping, hiking, building campfires or jumping in a lake, we’ll be there! Our two boys are enjoying music and Scouting. Our daughter is learning dance and loves riding her bike.
I’m committed to being a life-long chiropractic patient and I receive adjustments about twice a month. This keeps me functioning at top form. I like to get outside with the kids, go to the pool or ride my bike as often as the weather allows. When it doesn’t, I spend time at the gym to stay in shape. We strive to buy our food from local farmers and avoid processed food as much as possible. I take supplements every day and take no medications. Our kids are not vaccinated because I see the purpose in the immune system becoming strong by fighting its own battles. I am glad the medical system is there if a crisis occurs, but true health cannot come from a pill or a shot, it has to come from your daily habits.
