Meet Dr. Smith
Dr. Smith - Chiropractor
In his third year at Tennessee Tech University, Dr. Matt Smith suffered a back injury during an intramural basketball game. The excruciating pain was so intense he fell to his knees, gasping for air - he immediately knew his back had suffered a traumatic blow. He was right - for months he experienced debilitating back pain. After exhausting nearly every medical option (or so he thought,) his dad suggested he see a chiropractor. Desperate to find relief, Matt agreed and made an appointment.
The chiropractor took X-rays, conducted a quick exam and saw what was causing Matt’s pain - his spine was misaligned and pinching down on multiple nerves. The chiropractor created a treatment plan and with only two more visits and the therapies he recommended, the pain subsided.
Following that experience, he decided he wanted to become a chiropractor and help patients experience pain relief without destructive medications or invasive surgery. After graduating from Tennessee Tech, he attended Palmer College of Chiropractic and began practicing chiropractic in 2014.
Dr. Matt Smith is a native of Mt. Juliet, Tennessee, a son, husband, dog-dad and friend of the Wilson County community. When he’s not in the office, Dr. Matt is either hunting, fishing, or spending time with his wife Emily and dogs, Nellie and Cookie out on the lake.

Emily takes pride in winning a volleyball State Championship in 2007, and being a “fun aunt” to her niece and nephews! One of her favorite Bible verses is “God is within her, she will not fall.” Psalm 16:5
Fay - Chiropractic Assistant
Fay is one of the friendly faces you'll see when you walk through our doors. She has been on our team since January 2019 and is originally from Mound, Minnesota, but moved here when she was 15 so she considers herself a true Tennessean. In her spare time, she enjoys watching hockey and taking road trips with her kids. One of her greatest accomplishments was helping a friend organize a care package project for the Single Soldiers program at Fort Campbell, which earned them recognition from the Brigadier General. Her favorite quote is from FDR, who said, "There are many ways of going forward, but only one way of standing still.
