Hello. My name is Dr. Mark Bacome and welcome to our office. If a friend has referred you, then you may have heard that I am passionate about helping people reach their ultimate healing potential. When you step into our office you will notice something different. Great! Our goal is to create an experience that is unique to you and your family. In order to understand chiropractic and its importance to your family’s health, I feel it is necessary that you know who I am and the events that have shaped me into the person and practitioner that I am today.
Growing up, I did not come from a chiropractic family. I grew up thinking I would be the doctor of the family and my grandmother was a guiding light in that matter. It wasn’t until I was in high school that my grandma started having some health issues and went to a chiropractor. After some care she said to me, “I think we’ve got something here.” I shadowed her chiropractor for a day and I knew we had found something special.
After graduating from Omaha North High School, I went on to Wayne State College to earn my Bachelor of Science degree in Life Sciences. This was also where I met my wife, Kate Bacome. From there, I went on to Palmer College of Chiropractic for my Doctor of Chiropractic degree.
During school, I participated in a clinical outreach program where we went to Fiji for clinic abroad. We would spend most of our day traveling to various villages and schools, adjusting child after child. As we adjusted each kid, you could see their little eyes grow wide with life. They would hop up off the table, run to a group of their friends giggling with joy, and begin pushing the next one towards the table. Kids are so smart, they just get it. Things were changing in them and things were changing in me. I was starting to see the big picture. I graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic and knew in my heart I was going to change the world. I opened my family practice in 2012 and continued to change the world, this time in my hometown of Omaha, Nebraska.
One day, a woman walked through my door with shooting pains in her low back and knees. She was told by so many people that there was no hope and there are no options other than surgery. She had so much courage coming into the office three times a week, never missing an appointment, full trust in me and the power of chiropractic, not being discouraged or deterred by family who didn’t understand or the friends who told her it wouldn’t work. After a few weeks, she was getting great results for her low back. One day she came in with a look like she wanted to say something. She told me the ringing in her ears had gone away, which apparently she had since she was a kid but did not mention because she had given up hope of it ever getting fixed. Even without personally knowing about the problem, we were about to help her create her ultimate healing potential so her body could do the healing.
My heart feels right at home when I am able to create something, whether it is creating tiny furniture miniatures for role playing games, creating mystique by doing card/magic tricks, or creating fire to keep my friends/family warm on camping trips (and s’mores). As of late, my biggest creations are helping people reach their ultimate health potential.
Every day my passion grows from meeting extraordinary families. I take a lot of pride in making my patients feel that they can count on me no matter what opportunities or struggles they are facing. Don’t ever give up hope. Don’t give up on yourself or settle for mediocre. Come in and let’s talk.
I want to welcome you to my office and I encourage you to share the secret of chiropractic with others so that we can all be surrounded by happy, healthy, well-adjusted people… starting with the kids!
Let’s create something beautiful together.
Dr. Mark Bacome
