Our Doctors and Staff
Jared Thornton DC

Dr. Jared Thornton grew up in Rigby Idaho. After graduating from high school and serving an LDS mission in Georgia, he attended Ricks college and graduated with a degree in construction management. He spent the next twelve years working in the construction industry specializing in cabinetry and finish carpentry. His attention to detail and hard work ethic helped him to succeed in that field.


In 2012, he felt a strong desire to make a greater difference in this world and returned to school to become a chiropractor. He graduated Kum Laude from Parker University Chiropractic College in April of 2017, as well as completing a Bachelor degree in Human Anatomy and Health and Wellness. He has continued to seek additional education and holds the highest proficiency rating that Activator technique offers: Advanced Proficiency rating. He is one of three doctors in southeast Idaho that holds this certification.

Dr. Thornton is excited to be able to return and serve southeast Idaho. He enjoys spending time in the outdoors with his family and playing sports. When he is not in the office he is often found coaching the youth and participating in community activities. His continued attention to detail helps him to provide excellent patient care.

Our Practice

Here at Thornton Family Chiropractic we believe that the patient ALWAYS COMES FIRST. When Dr. Thornton enters the treatment or exam room to see you, he leaves all other concerns and worries at the door and you become his highest priority. 

We treat the entire spine along with any needed extremities. Often low back pain is a result of hip problems that are ofter over looked. Our goal is to find what the root cause of the problem is and then to develop a plan that will correct the actual problem, rather than just putting a bandaid on it.



 "I am so grateful for Dr. Thornton! I have been using him as my primary chiropractor for just over a year. He is my own personal “Mr. Fix Me”. My body is very difficult to align and work on. I don’t realign easily and unfortunately, stress likes to have a very negative effect on my neck, back, ribs and hips.  He does an amazing job of listening to me and using what he was told while he treats me. He is extremely thorough with me and makes sure that I feel better at the end  of every session. He never just treats what hurts. He treats what is causing that area to hurt.  He has done research on my behalf to make sure that he is providing me with the best care possible.  He also treats my husband and two children. He is very professional but so much fun to talk to and laugh with. This man is thorough and always wants his patients to feel relief. He is nothing short of amazing! I recommend Dr. Thornton very highly.
