Dr. Kristopher Sean Goddard is an osteopathic physician (DO). He has a thirst for knowledge that led him to medicine. As he says, “the body is one of the most complicated, fascinating things out there.”
Just before he started medical school, he was hit hard in the face with a softball. “After that, I had headaches all the time which Motrin didn’t help. I spent 6 months going from one doctor to another trying to fix it. Then I saw a cranial osteopath at the school, and for the first time my pain was gone without taking medicine. I decided there are not enough people who know how to do this kind of fundamental, curative work. My cranial bones were compressed – mine was not an easy fix. What that doctor did, got to the cause.”
After Dr. Goddard completed his internship, he returned to Tennessee and began his practice. He founded the Osteopathic Center in 2009. “It has been a mission. The knowledge I had the first day of my practice has increased a thousand-fold. Because of what I went through, I want to get somebody better as soon as possible. If I can get someone better in a month rather than a year, let’s do that!”
Dr. Goddard brought together a number of cutting-edge technologies in one clinic, making it easier for patients to thoroughly address numerous conditions in an environment that respects natural healing. The Osteopathic Center is a medical regenerative health clinic whose philosophy revolves around purposefully diagnosing and effectively enabling each patient’s body to achieve the most ideal state of health.
By studying, adopting, and expertly implementing a variety of philosophies, Dr. Goddard treats imbalances in the body using the best of traditional AND nontraditional modalities including osteopathic manipulation, cranial osteopathy, acupuncture, functional medicine, cell-based therapies, regenerative injections, and nutrition.
One of the most valuable aspects of his system is his innate ability to truly tailor each treatment to each patient’s individual needs. Using the wide range of expertise he has accrued over his career, these custom treatment plans have been proven to be effective, much gentler, and entirely less invasive than those recommended by many doctors who practice just traditional medicine. Dr. Goddard’s proficiency across the wide range of therapies ensures that each of his patients can access the tools necessary to drastically shift their health in a positive direction.
