Turnin On the Power for 25 years
MUNCY – It was not by chance that Dr. Tim Hampton was able to set up a successful chiropractic business in the East Lycoming area 25 years ago. The 1980 Hughesville graduate had every intention of setting up his practice in the area that raised him, and feels very fortunate to have found his “perfect” location soon after he graduated from Sherman Chiropractic College in South Carolina. “I always wanted to come back here,” said Dr. Hampton.
To celebrate his 25 years of “turning on the power” Hampton greeted all of his patients every Friday during the month of August with a free breakfast of danish and fruit in the mornings and party pizzas in the afternoons. “I am still taking care of some of the same patients today as I was 25 years ago when I first opened the practice,” exclaimed Hampton. His focus remains on chiropractic care for the spine, using no machines or gadgets.
“The years have gone extremely fast. I can’t believe it has been 25 years already. Now some of the youth I’ve taken care of, are now bringing in their own kids,” he added.
Inside the building located on 2848 Rt. 405 Highway in Muncy Creek Township, each of the patient rooms are decorated around a sports theme. For example, one room is devoted to Muncy Indians and another room is filled with Hughesville Spartans sports memorabilia. Another room is completed with Montgomery School sports and a fourth completes its decor with Sullivan County High School sports, as many of Hampton’s patients come from this area as well. Hampton, who loved to play sports while in high school, wanted to keep a local flair to remind everyone that safely playing sports is one of the best ways to keep in shape and keep bones strong and healthy.
Dr. Tim has resided in the Hughesville area with his family for 20 years. His wife Stephanie Niklalus Hampton also graduated from Hughesville, and they have three children, Sydney, 16, Nate age 13 and Sarah, age 9. They like to give back to their community and most recently, Dr. Hampton helped to organize a fundraiser through the East Lycoming Little League for Dakota Rumney, grandson to Bertha Fry.
“We have been really blessed with great relationships with folks and a great location,” said Hampton. “Lord willing, I should be here 25 years more,” he added.
