Dr. Tucker Ford

Drs. Tucker and Stacie Ford are 1996 graduates from Cleveland Chiropractic College of Kansas City. Dr. Tucker opened First Choice Chiropractic in 2001 with an emphasis on total health and wellness through a chiropractic lifestyle. He has personally experienced the long-term benefits of chiropractic care his entire life and he credits chiropractic for keeping him and his family happy, healthy and injury-free. It’s his own experience with chiropractic that led him to a profession that he loves.


Dr. Stacie joined the practice in 2003 after staying home full time with her young sons. Dr. Stacie became a chiropractic patient at age 19 after being involved in a car accident at age 11 which left her with severe headaches. She decided to choose chiropractic as her profession, and excels at teaching both her patient and community members about their innate source of healing, healthy eating, stress-management and wellness. She enjoys seeing the youngest of our clients including many newborns and their mothers. She is also our Nutrition expert and is here to help our patients with simple issues to the more complex and challenging cases.


Jenni has been with us since 2001. It is evident by her willingness to help with whatever is needed that she has a real passion for her job. Jenni handles insurance billing and patient accounts. Her knowledge in insurance, nutrition, health and wellness is always expanding and stays current by attending seminars throughout the year. With this deeper understanding she can assist clients in achieving their health and wellness goals. Jenni’s first experience with chiropractic was with us and her passion for healing the body naturally continues to grow everyday.


Wendy has been with us since 2005. She enjoys helping our clients feel comfortable in our office, because she recalls feeling a little nervous before her own first adjustment. She remembers when she first came to the office with severe low back pain and debilitating headaches from years of waiting tables. After a series of chiropractic adjustments, Wendy noticed relief of her symptoms as well as an improvement in her posture.


Linda was introduced to chiropractic in 1990 and was one of the biggest skeptics ever. The doctor knew she was nervous, so he gave her a gentle adjustment. Linda got adjusted regularly and in just a short time she started feeling so much better. She felt as if a weight had been lifted from her spine; She actually thought she could feel the blood flowing through her veins.


Emily has been with us since 2012. She loves to be around people, which makes working at First Choice Chiropractic very enjoyable for her. She’s been a fan of chiropractic ever since her mom brought her into a chiropractic office when she was seven years old. She attributes her record of good health to continued chiropractic care. Emily is a recent graduate of Washtenaw Community College with an Associate’s Degree in the Medical Office Assistant field. She was very happy to join our team so as to put her newfound skills to work. She also desires to continue learning, and is looking forward to studying nutrition through upcoming seminars.
