Dr. Bonham always wanted to help people. While attending Irmo High School in 1975, Dr. Bonham was immediately drawn to health sciences. Having always excelled in the fields of science and mathematics, Dr. Bonham was drawn naturally to chiropractic.
After graduating Irmo High School, Dr. Bonham attended Spartanburg Methodist College. At that time he developed a lot of problems sleeping on a variety of bad mattresses and having suffered a lot of injuries while playing baseball as a youth. Dr. Bonham initially sought out care with a medical doctor and was prescribed medications. He quickly realized that this only covered the symptoms but did not actually treat the problem. At that point, Dr. Bonham searched for an alternative. One afternoon a friend of his recommended that he go to a chiropractor. He went to a chiropractor in Spartanburg, who gave him a full spine adjustment and x-rays. He couldn’t believe it, but after years of suffering with chronic low-back, neck and mid-back pain, he was pain free! The headaches, the neck and shoulder pain were gone! So Dr. Bonham suddenly had a keen interest in chiropractic and found his life calling. He knew right away that he wanted to be a chiropractor.
After that Dr. Bonham changed his major and enrolled in Sherman Chiropractic College in Spartanburg, SC. After graduating chiropractic school he was hired by the Chairman of the Board of Chiropractic Examiners at that time, Richard Mooneyham and completed an 18 month associate ship with him. After that Dr. Bonham opened his office in West Columbia where he practices now. He continued his education with National Chiropractic College getting additional training in physical therapy, physical diagnosis, radiology of trauma, casting, treatment of the knee, ankle foot, elbow, shoulder, wrist and hand, impairment rating and disability evaluation.
Dr. Bonham was lucky enough to study under some of the best chiropractors in South Carolina and now has accumulated over 26 years of chiropractic experience. Dr. Bonham has traveled throughout the United States doing continuing education and furthering his development of chiropractic. Dr. Bonham believes that his well rounded experience and exposure to the chiropractic profession has gained him a wide array of knowledge in treatment of a variety of problems including headaches, neck/back pain, problems of the knee, ankle, foot, elbow, shoulder, wrist and hand, tendonitis, sciatic nerve problems, herniated disc and other associated spinal related conditions.
At this point Dr. Bonham draws patients from around the midlands area and further who travel from out of town to seek out Dr. Bonham’s expertise and experience of treatments of acute and chronic conditions.
Dr. Bonham has served the community for over 26 years and places extreme emphasis on the evaluation and gentle treatment of spinal related conditions for the purposes of alleviating pain and suffering of the people in the midlands area.
