Chiropractor Ann Arbor MI Meet The Team Dr Thomas Klapp

FOUNDER

Thomas Klapp D.C.

Dr. Tom Klapp founded First Choice Chiropractic in 1980. While he passed in 2020, his legacy lives on through his practice and the many contributions he made to the chiropractic profession. Here is his story:

“It was 1970, I was 16 years old and driving down the road in my Volkswagen Beetle when all of a sudden, I was distracted somehow, and in that moment, I plowed into the back of a pick-up truck. The front-end of my Beetle was crushed almost to the windshield, I hit my head on the windshield and almost passed-out. All I could think about was how bad my car looked! It was damaged badly, but not as badly as I was. Even though there was no blood that day, and no ambulance, I suffered a horrible injury—as auto accident victims often do—I just didn't know it for several years following the accident—as auto accident victims often don't.

After the accident, I developed severe headaches and allergies I'd never had before the accident. And, just like many other people do, I took medicine like it was going out of style—to no avail. The pain and allergies just got worse. Finally, after suffering for five years with these headaches and allergies, I learned about chiropractic and what a miracle! My headaches disappeared, and my allergies cleared up! I knew I wanted to be a chiropractor.

I thank God every day for that car accident! If I hadn't been involved in that accident I may not have learned about the benefits of chiropractic to my own health. I may not have decided to become a doctor of chiropractic and I may not have seen all the miracles I've seen through chiropractic in my 41 years of practice.”

Dr. Klapp was awarded “Chiropractor of the Year” by the Michigan Association of Chiropractors an unprecedented three times, as well as posthumously by the International Chiropractors Association. He was also named Detroit Hour Magazine “Top Chiropractor” four times. He served on the Life University Board of Trustees, as President of OneChiropractic, and Board Members of the Michigan Chiropractic Foundation and the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress at the time of his passing. His many positions of service to the profession and the community throughout his life and resulting awards and achievements are immeasurable. His wife of nearly 26 years, Kim, continues to run the practice and his daughter, Tori works here as well when home from DePaul University.
