Meet Dr. Edward Peeks

A Family Connection to Chiropractic

Chiropractor Johnson City, Dr. PeeksBorn in Peoria, Illinois, Dr. Peeks had an early exposure to the natural health field. His uncle, Dr. G.A. Stine, was a chiropractor. As a child, Dr. Peeks witnessed people who would arrive at his uncle’s office feeling bad; after they would get an adjustment, however, they would leave happy. Fascinated, he knew from an early age that he wanted to be a chiropractor.

While attending junior college, he entered the Army and served in Vietnam, receiving two bronze stars and other medals. When his service was complete, he attended Palmer College of Chiropractic. His years there involved a curriculum on a par with medical school and included a clinical phase of training, during which he attained intern status. This qualification allowed him to not require monitoring from a doctor while treating patients.

Gaining Expertise in Natural Health Care

Additionally, his years of chiropractic education allowed Dr. Peeks an introduction to Dr. Vernon Pierce, a pioneer in advanced analysis and adjusting techniques. He was the inventor of the Dermathermograph, which Dr. Peeks uses in practice to this day. With this innovative mentor and close friend, Dr. Peeks was driven to excel in practice, and you’ll even see a memorial to Dr. Pierce and Dr. Stine in treatment rooms at Peeks Chiropractic, P.C..

Dr. Peeks graduated magna cum laude with a 3.72 GPA in December 1974 and headed to Tennessee to practice with his uncle. After some time, Dr. Peeks decided to open his own practice. Since then, he’s been recognized several times for his outstanding patient care. He was president of the East Tennessee Chiropractic Association in 2002, 2003, 2005 and 2006. The Tennessee Chiropractic Association named him Tennessee’s Chiropractor of the Year in 2000. He’s been president of the North Johnson City Business Club and the Johnson City Kiwanis® Club, and in 2010 was awarded Kiwanian of the Year.


Thriving and Being Active

After more than 45 years in practice, Dr. Peeks is going strong with no plans to retire. He is passionate about helping people and having a positive effect on patients’ lives. The challenge of each individual’s new health problem still intrigues him, and his experience aids him to address the patient’s problem.

When he isn’t busy at the office, Dr. Peeks and his wife Sherry are new empty nesters who enjoy cruising, photography and hiking. You’ll see Sherry at Peeks Chiropractic, P.C., as she’s responsible for insurance billing and social media at the office.
