About Carol Stall


Dr. Tom Pledger

Thomas M. Pledger, D.C., C.C.S.T., graduated with a Bachelor's Degree from Indiana University in 1990. He earned his Doctorate in Chiropractic in August of 1993 and has practiced in Plano and Richardson, Texas since then.

His passion is to empower each person to take responsibility for their own healing and health, and he loves teaching and sharing his wisdom and knowledge about the human body. Dr. Pledger is one of those rare and natural teachers who can involve and intrigue his students with a subject that is often taught in a dry and academic (and boring) way.

He has taught Anatomy and Physiology to our teacher training candidates since 2003 and makes each interactive class pertinent to yoga asanas to deepen students' learning experiences and make their learning applicable to teaching yoga to their own students. He invariably rates the highest evaluations and many complimentary remarks.

As a professional member of each patient's health team, Dr. Pledger's goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle, able to enjoy the activities they love most. He recognizes that each patient is a whole person and that to reach true health and wellness, there must be a collaborative effort between the health care provider and the patient. His commitment assists and motivates each person to learn more about building, maintaining, and optimizing their health.

Dr. Pledger holds a Post-Graduate Certification in Spinal Trauma and is currently pursuing a Diplomate in Chiropractic Orthopedics with National University. He was recently granted the Breakthrough Coaching Doctor of the Year Award and the CEO Award. He is a charter member of the Commitment to Excellence Organization. These top honors are from one of the most prestigious practice management organizations in the country.

Other Post Graduate studies include Physical Impairment Rating, Training with the Texas Medical Association and seminars in Neurology, Radiology, Disc Treatment, Nutrition, and Rehabilitation.

Dr. Pledger is a member of the Texas Chiropractic Association and the American Chiropractic Association. His ongoing goal is to provide the community a place to learn about and build optimal health.
