Meet Dr. William (Bill) Lichter

From Law School To Chiropractic

After a youth filled with athletic activities like hockey, baseball and basketball, Dr. Lichter developed lower back problems. “I was in law school at the time. These back problems were interfering with my ability to focus on what I was doing. An orthopedist office took a couple of X-rays and told me nothing was wrong. It was suggested that I take Tylenol.”

Obtaining a Chiropractic Education

“Frustrated, I followed the recommendation of a friend. I went to a chiropractor. After experiencing great success with chiropractic care, I decided to leave law school. I then entered New York Chiropractic College.” Dr. Lichter graduated in 1990 with a Doctor of Chiropractic.

He has taken many continuing education courses so he can best serve our patients. These include ones on Whiplash Injury and Traumatology, MRI Bone Scan and X-ray Protocols and many others.

Helping Others, Naturally

When it comes to neuromusculoskeletal conditions, Dr. Lichter firmly believes that chiropractors are the obvious first stop. “I don’t think anyone manages neck and back problems better than us. Sometimes we have to refer patients for surgery or pain management. However, we’re helping most patients avoid invasive procedures.”

People may find it surprising that Dr. Lichter receives referrals from medical primary physicians and medical specialists as well as treat a number of medical specialists. “I believe that my rational approach, only accepting cases that I truly think will respond to our care and referring patients out to other specialists when appropriate, and my decades of experience makes area physicians and specialists confident in referring their patients to me.”

It’s highly rewarding for Dr. Lichter to help people do the things they need and want to do. Best of all, he does so without drugs or surgery.

Enjoying Life in Tampa

After practicing in New York, Dr. Lichter and his wife moved to Tampa in 1994. They wanted to enjoy the warmer weather and a more relaxed lifestyle. Since then, their family has grown to include two daughters and a black Lab.

Dr. Lichter’s hobbies include a lot of hockey. He plays ice hockey and is a big fan of the Tampa Bay Lightning and the National Hockey League in general. He also likes to spend time at the beach and travel. Recently, Dr. Lichter has done some SCUBA diving. When he’s not at the practice, he certainly knows how to make the most of life!
