While finishing his doctorate in chiropractic medicine with a dual specialty in acupuncture, Dr. Watson met his now wife, Stefanie, in St. Petersburg, FL. Shortly after their wedding, the two moved to Tallahassee to begin his private chiropractic and acupuncture practice.
Dr. Watson interned with the Florida Orthopedic Center and performed dry needling services to Florida State University’s top athletes. However, the closures of the pandemic brought new perspective as the couple decided there was no place like the white sandy shores of Dr. Watson’s Pensacola home to raise their two kids and move their private practice. And that is just what they did in June of 2020!
Since being back in Pensacola, Dr. Watson has achieved a bounty of awards and accolades To name a few: Team Chiropractor for our beloved home team the Pensacola Blue Wahoos (GO WAHOOS!!); VIP Pensacola “Best in Pensacola for Pain Management” Award which hangs in his private practice FIT Chiropractic & Acupuncture.
