The Tennessee Chiro-practic Association and the Chiropractic Assistants of Tennessee honored Tammy House, CTA, CXT of Union City with one of the association’s highest awards, Chiropractic Assistant of the Year. She was recognized during the TCA Annual Convention recently held in Franklin.
She has served 24 years as a chiropractic assistant and serves her practice as both a licensed chiropractic therapy assistant and chiropractic X-ray technologist. In addition, she manages insurance procedures for her office and has shown particular grace under the recent pressures brought by changes to Medicare policy.
“She exemplifies excellence year after year through her work in the chiropractic field, always going the extra mile to provide the highest quality care and support for their patients,” a spokesman said. “A long-time CAT member and supporter of TCA educational seminars, she is always willing to expand her knowledge and help others in her field. Whether in the office with patients or in the halls at a seminar, she has the ability to turn any frown into a smile with her positive attitude, confident demeanor and bright smile.”
Mrs. House works side by side with her husband, chiropractic physician Dr. Brad House.
When asked, he noted that she is always kind and caring, but has also “shown toughness beyond measure by fighting for her profession over this entire year to try to ensure fairness to all the chiropractors across this great state.”
“The Chiropractic Assis-tant of the Year is given to a current CAT member who demonstrates a strong commitment to their profession, the TCA and their community,” Tiffany Stevens, executive director of the Tennessee Chiropractic Association, said. “Tammy’s dedication to chiropractic and the patients she serves is undeniable and speaks through her continued passion for the profession. Our organization is proud to honor such a true professional with a fire for chiropractic.”
