A native of Pasadena, Dr. Tim J. McKinley has more than 25 years invested in family chiropractic care, and has been the local chiropractor for The Joint Chiropractic’s Pasadena Fairway Parkway location since September 2014.
He received his doctor of chiropractic from Texas Chiropractic College in 1988 after attending University of Houston and San Jacinto College.
“The best thing about being in the chiropractic field is two-fold,” Dr. McKinley says. “It’s helping sick people, and it’s making them smile.”
With patients ranging from infants to senior citizens, he is responsible for a lot of smiles in a career focused on wellness care and prevention. He is dedicated to the compassionate treatment of his patients and committed to the highest standards of professional chiropractic treatment and excellence,
“I’m convinced of a healthy body’s ability to repair itself, and the body’s ability to utilize its natural processes to help restore it to homeostasis,” Dr. McKinley says. “I’m a firm believer that routine chiropractic adjustments help maintain and optimize health.”
His own experience with chiropractic began years ago after a pretty traumatic experience.
“It was after a motorcycle wreck,” he says. “I received chiropractic care and I wanted to be a chiropractor ever since.”
In addition to performing chiropractic adjustments, Dr. McKinley enjoys educating his patients and empowering them to develop the habits they need to lead a healthy lifestyle. “The science, art and philosophy I learned in chiropractic college taught me how to care for the patient as a whole and not get distracted by treating the symptoms,” he says. “It is paramount to appreciate that the power that made the body heals the body, and the doctor simply assists.”
Dr. McKinley has the advantage of working where he grew up. “The best thing about working at The Joint in Pasadena is helping the people in my hometown,” he says.
When he’s not in the office, or exploring with his Australian cattle dog, a red heeler named Patches, Dr. McKinley enjoys cave diving and spearfishing.
In Case You Didn’t Know
If there’s any food that Dr. McKinley has to keep on hand, it’s tamales. He loves them. And if he were to invite any foursome from history over for a tamale dinner, he would no doubt find the conversation interesting among author, poet and self-proclaimed psychic Jane Roberts; the founder of analytical psychology Carl Jung; Spanish explorer Christopher Columbus; and scientist Albert Einstein.
The coolest thing Dr. McKinley has ever done is deep scuba diving. “When you’re on the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico at 200 to 300 feet, you know no person has been there lately, and few humans could ever go there,” he says. “It feels like walking on the moon.”
Dr. Joseph Gomez became part of The Joint Chiropractic’s team of local healthcare providers in 2020 when he began serving residents in the Pasadena area to continue doing the work he finds so enjoyable.
“I love being able to help people every day I go to work,” he says. “It’s gratifying to hear people’s testimony about how chiropractic helped them get back to their normal life again.”
Dr. Gomez is a product of San Antonio who worked previously in Katy, Houston, Sugar Land, and Alvin.
Married to a social worker and raising two sons, Dr. Gomez enjoys spending time with his family and studying the Bible.
He earned bachelor’s and master’s of science degrees at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, before earning a doctorate of chiropractic from Texas Chiropractic College. The focus of his studies was biomedical science and community counseling.
It was in college that he discovered his calling to become a chiropractor.
“I had been dealing with neck and low back pain for months while in college,” he says. “I had put off seeking chiropractic care, like most people, because I wasn’t sure about it and I thought the pain would go away by itself. I finally couldn’t tolerate it any longer. The Joint wasn’t around then, so I had nowhere to begin looking for a chiropractor.
“The funny thing is that one of my best friends performed a magic trick with a business card and it happened to be a chiropractor’s business card. So I figured that was a good start. When Dr. Cole adjusted me and I felt immediate relief, I knew right then that I wanted to do the same thing for others. The crazy part about all this is that my friend who performed the magic trick went on to become a chiropractor after I adjusted him. It all came full circle.”
The magic of chiropractic continues at the Pasadena Fairway Parkway clinic location. “This is a great place to work,” Dr. Gomez says. “My patients and coworkers are outstanding.”
In Case You Didn’t Know
Dr. Gomez says he keeps his refrigerator stocked with one of life’s basics: Water. “I prefer cold water,” he says. “It keeps me going after a busy day at work.”
If he could bring together any four people from history, Dr. Gomez would definitely take a step back in time. “I would include Jesus, the apostles Paul and John, and Moses. “I’m such a Bible nerd that I would love to be in their presence and soak up what each of them would have to say,” he says.
The coolest thing he has done was act on his call to serve. “I helped organize a group of friends and family to prepare a meal at the Ronald McDonald House for families staying there, along with the staff,” Dr. Gomez says. “It was cool to provide a meal for people I didn’t know to show them there are others who care for them in this world. We were able to spread the love that Jesus taught us to do.”
