Health Designs for Spines
Dr. Tecla Fuller
Gripped by determination, laced with feminine flair.
I never dreamed of becoming a Chiropractor, I kind of landed here by accident. Prior to this I was a Medical Technologist, working my dream job in the blood bank at the American Red Cross. I was doing special testing on patients that were complex cases and would require specialized units of blood prior to transfusion.
My husband was also a Med Tech and was how we met but he needed a career change. He decided that he wanted to become a Chiropractor. Since I loved him more than I loved my job, I decided to follow my first love…so, off I went to Chiropractic college.
I received my Doctor of Chiropractic from Texas Chiropractic College in Pasadena, Texas. I was the oldest student in class but was determined to do my best. I graduated Magna Cum Laude, Omega Psi and Valedictorian. I have advanced certifications in spinal correction, nutrition, toxicity, and exercise and have had extensive training in two of the largest health clinics in the country.
Chiropractic has transformed my own life. I have suffered from debilitating migraines and fibromyalgia for over 40 years. With advanced genetic and intracellular testing, along with structural correction I have seen an amazing transformation in my own health. I take great joy in sharing this knowledge with my patients.
I love challenge, the more complicated the case the better. If I don’t have an understanding of what is ailing a patient, I will exhaust myself finding the answer. If it is a treatment method I’m unfamiliar, I will learn it. I will do whatever it takes to get my patient better.
I have volunteered my time in multiple communities serving those in family crisis centers and providing care for young, unwed mothers and their children. I continue this outreach in the East Valley through fundraisers to directly benefit local organizations and speaking engagements for schools, businesses, and churches. I am also very proud to serve our veterans as a Community Care Provider.
When I am not in the office, I love spending time with my husband. We love the outdoors, riding our horses, biking, and hiking. I also enjoy spending time with family, traveling and taking care of my two senior kitty cats.
