Larry R. Montgomery, DC

Consultation and Examination in 100 Visit Per Day Practice

Dr. Larry Montgomery received his first chiropractic adjustment at age 4.  This occurred three days after a batter (in a back yard baseball game) threw a bat into the air, after hitting Larry’s fastball.  Trying to catch the ball, the bat struck Larry in the head (which could explain several things about Dr. Montgomery) and resulted in a “crick” in the neck.  Four days later, lain on a piece of ½ plywood in the back of a 1958 Mercury, the family drove 30 miles to a chiropractor who provided near instant relief.  For nearly a month afterward, Larry adjusted teddy bears, stuffed monkeys and unsuspecting siblings, as the impact of his first adjustment was stuck in his memory.

Dr. Montgomery is a May 1981 graduate of Texas Chiropractic College, opening his practice in Belton, Texas on September 21, 1981.

Other than faith and family, he counts his greatest bestowed honor to be the thousands of patients who allowed him to be a part of their health care team during his 37 years in practice.
