About Dr. Cross

I first moved to Tucson in 1969. I graduated from Amphitheater High School before attending Northern Arizona University. My wife, Kim, and I raised our three children in Tucson. Kim is an LPN working in the Tucson area. We are the proud parents of two sons, who are with a local law enforcement agency, as well as one daughter, who is serving our country in the U.S. Army. I graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 1994, and have been practicing in Tucson since 1995.

I use the Palmer method of adjusting, and am also one of a limited of chiropractors trained in the Atlas Orthogonal technique. I first saw Atlas Orthogonal used on my wife while I was attending chiropractic school. She was suffering with daily migraines, as well as high blood pressure. This was while on medications to stop the symptoms. After getting adjusted with the "A.O." method, she was able to stop the medications and now rarely gets migraines. Atlas Orthogonal is very beneficial for patients with upper neck complaints who have not had success with other chiropractic methods. It has also been beneficial to patients with headaches, and has been featured on the NBC show "The Doctors", as well as on "The Montel Williams Show". My office has been featured on two local television stations health beat segments, as well as in the The Arizona Daily Star newspaper.

I also use functional medicine to treat patients with chronic conditions. Nutritional response testing is utilized to determine if there are issues with heavy metals, immune challenges, or other factors preventing the patient from living life to their maximum potential.

I have also received the Advanced Certification of Competency in Whiplash and Brain Injury Traumatology from the Spine Research Institute of San Diego. I believe that all injuries suffered in auto collisions must be addressed with a multi-faceted approach. This includes chiropractic care, first and foremost, along with massage therapy for the soft tissue injury, as well as referrals to other professionals as needed.

Testimonials

  • "Dr. Cross is by far the best Chiropractor I have ever been to. I am 55 and have been getting chiropractic care since my early 20s for my neck and upper back. I recently discovered I have an atlas subluxation and was so happy to discover Dr. Cross. In fact he is the only Doctor in Tucson using this technique. An upper cervical Chiropractor is called an Orthogonist. He is also a holistic Chiropractor treating all areas of the body including health and wellness. So don't walk...run to Doctor Cross for any aches or pains. He is a truly amazing empathetic and humble person and a phenomenal Doctor."

  • "Dr. Cross is a superb doctor. Believe it, or not, he has helped me with every health issue, including doing research and reporting things my other doctors didn't know. Dr. Cross advises on permanent fixes, such as exercises to strengthen weak muscles, health programs, vitamins, supplements, and things I should read and research on my own to expand my health knowledge. Keep up the great work, Dr. Cross."

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
