Meet The Doctors

Dr. Tom Fulcher, D.C. is a Chiropractor at Glen Carbon

Dr. Tom Fulcher joined the family of The Joint Chiropractic in 2019 with his arrival at the Glen Carbon clinic location. A product of Danville Junior College, he received his doctor of chiropractic degree from Palmer College of Chiropractic, where he received a chiropractic certification in spinal trauma.” He is also a Fellow of the American Back Society.

“The best thing about being in the chiropractic field is the ability to help people regain and maintain their health throughout their lifetime,” Dr. Tom says. “The other thing I love is the opportunity to get to know so many of the people in the community.”

Dr. Tom spent his early years in New York in a family whose travels were determined by his father’s role with the Apollo space program. They lived in Swarthmore, Pa., in the 1960s before moving to Illinois.

He moved to Davenport, Iowa, to start chiropractic college at Palmer College in January 1976, and moved back to Quincy, Ill., in 1980. Four years later, he moved to Washington, D.C., where he practiced for seven years. In 1991, he moved to Springfield, Ill., and has practiced there ever since; he currently maintains a part-time practice there.

In his spare time, Dr. Tom enjoys singing. “I am part of a karaoke group in Springfield that meets every Tuesday night,” he says. “I prefer to sing Elvis and Barry Manilow music, and once a year, I sing at Graceland during Elvis Week.”

Dr. Tom knew early on what he wanted to do. His father was a regular chiropractic patient as a result of an accident he had as a truck driver who hauled cars. “He hurt his back badly when he was loading a VW Beetle onto a car carrier in a snowstorm and it slipped off the top of the trailer,” he says. Through his father’s chiropractors, Dr. Tom was introduced to chiropractic, and afterward structured the rest of his high school and junior college curriculum toward getting into Palmer College.

Dr. Tom likes working at The Joint Chiropractic because it fits very closely with his core values: “It is a low-cost cash practice and allows people access to chiropractic who would be financially unable otherwise.”

In Case You Didn’t Know

If Dr. Tom could bring together any four people from history, he would love to gather around an open fire on the backyard patio. “I would like to meet Elvis Presley,” he says. “I grew up listening to him and singing his music; his music is fun and it makes me happy. I would also include Troy Gentry of the country music duo Montgomery Gentry; he was a fine man who I used to hang out with in Memphis until his tragic death. It would be fun to pick the brain of Dr. BJ Palmer, the developer of chiropractic. Finally, I would include the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, which was started by the heavy metal group Savatage; the lead singer was a patient of mine in Washington, D.C.”

Dr. Tom’s passion for singing led to one of the most interesting things he has done.

“I guess the coolest thing I ever did was sing at Graceland,” he says. “I get to hang out with people from all over the world who appreciate Elvis, and share each other’s interpretation of Elvis’ music. It’s an awesome camaraderie.”

Dr. Matthew Wise, D.C. is a Chiropractor at Glen Carbon

. Matthew Wise has been involved with The Joint Chiropractic in 2019. He earned his doctorate from Logan College of Chiropractic in 2003 and went on to own and operate multiple inter-disciplinary clinics, gaining experience specializing in treatment of athletes then moving on to later specialize in spinal disc and neuropathy treatment. After getting fed up with the frustrations of health insurance and its limitations, Dr. Wise was looking for a new practice model, better for both the practitioner and the patient, and was attracted by The Joint Chiropractic.

. Wise has a strong passion for excellence and a concierge-style approach when treating his patients. After suffering from knee pain while playing sports in high school, he was ultimately helped by a chiropractor and has had a passion for chiropractic care ever since.

The Chiropractic techniques he uses in practice are mainly Diversified, Thompson, ART, and Activator Methods. He subscribes to a "Total Body" approach to health care and has worked with MD's, PT's, LMT's, Orthopedists and Neurologists in order to provide the best possible care to his patients.
