Dr Andrew Lewis Jr, DCChiropractic Physician
Dr. Andrew James Lewis Jr, was born in Hastings, Florida. While growing up, a strong work ethic was instilled in Dr. Lewis by his father and uncles. As a child, he found athletics and performance fascinating. Throughout his early education years, his intrigue with kinesthetics made him wonder about the body’s abilities to move and its susceptibility to injuries. After finishing high school, Andrew went on to college to begin his studies in Physical Therapy. After a few semesters and volunteering at a local PT clinic, he realized that although a great field, it was not envisioned purpose.
While still undecided, Dr. Lewis was involved in a car accident that led him to see Dr. Michael Atkinson of Fiorini Chiropractic, who so eloquently explained what Chiropractic was all about. Dr. Lewis quickly realized that God was working everything out for the best and that he was being shown exactly what he was supposed to be.
Soon after, he attended and graduated from the University of Central Florida, where he earned a Bachelor’s degree in Sport and Exercise Science. The following year he began his doctorate degree at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Port Orange, Florida. During that time, Dr. Lewis worked under the leadership of expert, Dr. John Lockenour DC, DABCO, in the field of Orthopedics, Neuromusculoskeletal conditions, Nutrition, and Acupuncture. This allowed him to hone his skills as a future chiropractor, especially in the areas of activator protocol, soft tissue, gonstead, diversified, and sacro occipital technique. Once he had successfully completed his studies, Dr. Lewis earned his Doctorate in Chiropractics. Now with the University of Bridgeport, he is currently working toward obtaining a post doctorate degree in orthopedics.
Today, Dr Lewis is the owner of New Dimensions Chiropractic Center Inc. and also an adjunct Professor of Anatomy and Physiology at Tallahassee Community College. Along with the head athletic trainer, Charlie Holliday, Dr. Lewis treats Eagles’ student athletes with the techniques best suited for their injury. Outside of his career as a chiropractor, he is the founder of the non-profit organization, Young Me Above Influence in which his mission is to guide and provide positive male role models and influence to young men in his community. Dr. Lewis is a part of Big Bend Minority Chamber of Commerce, Tallahassee Network of Young Professionals, Florida Chiropractic Association and Florida Chiropractic Physician Association and J.R.E Lee Lodge #422.
Since childhood, Dr. Lewis has had a passion for helping others. To accomplish this passion he has trained and worked tirelessly. An Unsung Hero Award and countless academic achievements have aided him in being the best he can be. More than anything, however, the positive results of those he has helped has been the driving force in his continued duty to help others. Away from his career, Dr. Lewis enjoys carpentry, fixing things, exercise, sports, barbering and playing bass guitar. However, spending time with his family and friends are most important.
