Noble chiropractic welcomes doctor

NORMAN — Noble Chiropractic Center and Dr. Clifford Gilson welcomed Dr. Eric Choate to the staff this month.

“I’ve been needing an associate as we continue to service a growing community,” Gilson said.

Five years ago, Gilson moved his staff into the newly built quarters at 1101 Parkwoods Drive just off of State Highway 77 behind First Fidelity Bank and across from the Sonic. Gilson has been practicing in Noble since 1993.

In addition to growth in the population Gilson serves, he said he sees an increase in people seeking chiropractic treatment.

“The acceptance of chiropractic and the understanding of what we do has dramatically improved,” Gilson said. “People are just a lot more aware these days of their health and their health needs.”

Choate said he was attracted to the practice of chiropractic medicine because it is a gentle, non-invasive treatment to help restore people to a natural state of health and vitality.

“The body is a self-healing, self regulating organism,” Choate said. “The body does help itself. We just act as guides to get it there.”

Choate grew up in Seminole where he graduated from high school in 1999. He attended Seminole State College for a time then took a break to do two years of missionary work for his church in Leeds, England.

“It was a great experience,” he said. “I grew up a lot there.”

His mission work also helped him develop a great deal of compassion for people, he said.

He eventually attended the University of Oklahoma where he studied a pre-law curriculum. He had never really been attracted to the health professions.

A car wreck which sent him and his wife to seek chiropractic care, changed his outlook forever. Acquainted with Dr. Gilson from church, Choate naturally sought him out for chiropractic treatment.

“He shows a lot of respect to his patients,” Choate said.
