FORT MOHAVE– If you are a believer, Dr. Terry Coyle and his other half, Rose, are here in our neighborhood thanks to divine intervention.
If you're not, then we actually lucked out, because given that 2002, Coyle has been acknowledged 15 times as the top of his profession. Or professions?
Coyle is a nurse professional along with a chiropractic physician.
Originally from West Virginia, Coyle transferred to Illinois to be closer to his wife's family. For 11 of the 12 years he remained in Danville, Illinois, his chiropractic clinic was picked as the top in the county. In the fall of 2013, Coyle relocated to Bullhead City and ever since was named leading NP in the Mohave Valley Daily News “Best of” 4 times and in 2016 his center was named the top medical center.
Coyle was initially entering into nursing, however on his way to completing his degree, he suffered an injury.
“While getting all my requirements, I wound up injuring my back,” stated Coyle. “They wanted me to do pain medication which I could not do because I was doing cardiac critical care at the time. So, I tried physical treatment.”
Coyle had little success with PT, when a pharmacist pal suggested a chiropractic practitioner. Coyle didn't understand what that was about, but if it could aid with the pain, he wanted to check it out.
“He said he believed he would be able to assist me, and about two months later on not just was I being helped, however I had the ability to get off some of my asthma medication,” stated Coyle. “I asked my chiropractic doctor about that, and he said that a great deal of his clients state that their asthma improves after getting modifications.”
That was all he needed. Coyle graduated from chiropractic school and he and Rose were off to Illinois. In 2011, while working at his center, Coyle understood that he couldn't really do all he wanted to help clients unless he returned and completed his NP degree.
“My practice was attempting to be more of a specific niche market for herniated disks in the lower back,” discussed Coyle. “In doing so, we would get clients that were so severely hurt, there was no way as a chiropractic practitioner, that I might assist them. I would need to send them off for a referral for some discomfort medicine or muscle relaxers. However then I would never see them again.”
After getting his NP, he would have the ability to treat it with non-narcotics as well as control and treatment.
The Coyles were prepared to leave Illinois, however they had agreed they would wait until after their boys finished from high school.
“After they graduated, we offered the practice,” stated Coyle. “Basically within 45 days, we sold the practice and the house and we were on the road. We were unemployed and homeless.”
They began travelling around doing task interviews and seeing the nation when, out of the blue, Dr. Allen Stout called them and invited them to Bullhead City for an interview. A couple of weeks later while getting ready for an interview in Portland, Oregon, the devoutly spiritual couple had a spiritual moment.
“We went to this little sandwich store in downtown Portland before the interview,” said Rose. “I get up and I had a spiritual experience. We had actually been doing a lot of praying on this. I came out and told Terry there's no reason to do this interview. We require to call Dr. Stout, we need to go pack our hotel space and cancel the other appointments you have set up. And go back to Bullhead. That's what we did.”
Coyle's focus is now non-narcotic interventional pain management. “It's pain medication minus the narcotics,” stated Coyle.
He can treat patients with joint injections, epidurals, PRP injections and standard chiropractic approaches.
“It's just a wonderful mix,” said Coyle. “Medicine is not the remedy all. The medication allows your brain to either not feel it or respond to it so that you can fix the problem. The only way to repair the problem is to physically fix the issue.”
Coyle also specializes in Video Fluroscopy, Carpal Tunnel treament and Hyalgan knee injections.
The Coyles are really active in the community, consisting of the Kiwanis Club of the Colorado River, the Bullhead Area Chamber of Commerce and with the Caring Hearts Food Ministry at Amazing Grace Fellowship Church.
“Dr. Coyle is here to remain,” added Rose. “He's not searching for an out plan. He has actually put down roots and becomes part of the neighborhood.”
