Meet the Doctors

  • Dr.
    John Paul Hammer

    Chiropractic Physician

    Dr. John Paul Hammer was born in Lakeville, Minnesota in 1968. He grew up on a small farm where his parents still live.  He attended St. Cloud State with a chemistry major.  From there he went to Northwestern College of Chiropractic where he excelled and graduated top of his class.

    After graduation in 1993, he was recruited by multiple firms, however decided to start up his own clinic.  Rocky Mount, NC was a good choice: it was not as small as the town he grew up in, and was not so large that he would be overwhelmed.

    In the 19 years that Dr. Hammer has been in Rocky Mount, he has changed to face of chiropractic.  He has established good relationships throughout the medical profession, which had not been done before.  Because of this, patients at the Hammer Chiropractic Center benefit from a multidisciplinary approach.  He always said “If I can’t help you, I will send you to someone who can.”
