Action Chiropractic, Abilene

Nick Anthony ('05) has always found the intricacies and complexities of the human body fascinating  - so much so that he pursued a career in which he could help the human body operate as smoothly as possible. An undergraduate degree in exercise science put Nick on the fast track to a career as a chiropractor.

I love ACU. I'm looking for ways to give back with my time and educate people in my field of chiropractic. I am very appreciative of all ACU taught me.

"I chose this career because of an appreciation for health and taking care of the body," Nick said. "The Bible says to treat your body as your temple. If you take care of it, it takes care of you."

The faculty and staff at ACU played a major role in helping him become who he is today as a chiropractor and a man.

"In my department the motto was mind, body and soul. That parallels being a chiropractor," Nick said. "They take overall health into consideration and that's what I do now as a chiropractor."

Nick believes his undergraduate education at ACU helped prepare him for his studies at the Parker College of Chiropractic in Dallas. Nick now works as a licensed chiropractor at Action Chiropractic in Abilene. Nick also serves as the chiropractor for the ACU football team - a squad for which he played tight end during his time at ACU.

"While at ACU, I loved being in a Christian community. When I got to chiropractic school, it became clear how well prepared I was by the ACU faculty and staff," he said. 

Nick and his wife, Shannon, spend most their time taking care of their 6-month-old son Gavin, but Nick wants to stay involved at ACU. Nick has volunteered to speak to classes and he hopes to become more involved with ACU's new Royce and Pam Money Student Recreation and Wellness Center.

"I love ACU. I'm looking for ways to give back with my time and educate people in my field of chiropractic," Nick said. "I am very appreciative of all ACU taught me."
