About Dr. Tony Brooks

 

 

A licensed chiropractor in the state of Washington. Helping people improve their health with diet, exercise, and chiropractic adjustments. 

Tony currently resides in Seattle area with wife (the unicorn) and two children. 

Growing up in the Sacramento valley in the town of Roseville, CA. A seemingly normal unassuming, yet driven young individual. Quietly excelling in the classroom and athletics until his sophomore year when he tore his right ACL in a pickup basketball game. Quickly, he jumped on his knee surgery with aggressive rehabilitation and was 100% before leaving high school.

After high school, he enrolled at the University of Arizona in Tucson. During his first month in college, an event that is ingrained into most American’s minds took place. The month was September and the year was two thousand and one. 9/11/01. That day forever changed Tony, his mindset, and his drive to serve something greater than himself. 

In January of 2002, Black Hawk Down was released and he watched it with a few of my fellow fraternity brothers. This movie brought back the memories of his brother growing up and telling him all about how “bad ass” Rangers were. 

In June of 2002, Pat Tillman enlisted in the United States Army to become a United States Army Ranger. (For those of you who aren't familiar with Pat, he was an American Football player who turned down a lucrative contract extension with the Arizona Cardinals to become an enlisted U.S. Army Ranger following the 9/11 terror attacks).

This was the last straw for him.

After returning to the University of Arizona for part of the fall of 2002, he packed up his car and drove back to Roseville, CA.

In 2003, he enlisted as an 11B with an option 40. This was how the military designated an infantryman with the option to become a Ranger. Due to the powers that be, his basic training date was for February of 2004. He had one year to prepare.

This was the beginning of his journey...

PASSION

To empower those around me with education, inspiration and common sense solutions to their problems. The health of my fellow veterans and americans is always top of mind.

Whether it is a business looking to improve their culture, or a patient looking to change their lifestyle, Tony takes pride in working with a strategic mindset that starts with the end game. If you don’t know where you are going, then your path is less visible. You may never reach your goal. 

GAME CHANGER

He doesn't follow the beaten path. Rather take the logical path and lead the way while doing it. 

LEAVE NO MAN BEHIND is his ethos.

In the summer of 2005, as a member of Second Ranger Battalion, he deployed to Afghanistan. This was one of the slowest deployments EVER for 2nd Ranger Battalion. Spending almost the entire deployment training and working on physical fitness.

THANK GOODNESS!

At the end of this deployment, he embarked on one of the most rigorous and dangerous rescue operations in modern day military history. Tasked with the recovery of downed chinook helicopter, Turbine 33 and The Lone Survivor, Marcus Luttrell. His squad of 8 men was tasked as the primary search and rescue element. Off they went... and they would LEAVE NO MAN BEHIND.
