Dr. Cleve Redus
Dr. Redus is a native of Texas, graduated from Texas Christian University, and earned a Master’s Degree in Education from West Texas State University He taught in the secondary schools of Katy, TX, Phillips, TX, and Amarillo, TX. While in Phillips he was introduced, by a neighbor and good friend, to chiropractic. Years later, while on his chiropractor’s table one day the thought came to him, “You should be doing this.” He returned to school and completed all of his pre-med classes, then he moved to Davenport, IA to attend Palmer College of Chiropractic.
Dr. Redus received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree and began a long investigation of places to live. He and his family wanted friendly, family-oriented people, trees, rivers, mountains, and four definite seasons, but none of them too drastic. They found those requirements met in East Tennessee. Dr. Redus did a door to door tour of La Follette, introducing himself to 1,000 residents as “the new chiropractor in town.” He and Dana decided after meeting all those Campbell Countians that this was the place to live. “La Follette Family Chiropractic Center” was opened by Dr. Redus and Dana. After several years at the first location the business was moved to the current building at 302 Main Street in Jacksboro and the name changed to Redus Chiropractic Care.
Dr. Redus has been an active member of the Tennessee Chiropractic Association since 1991. Dr. Redus attends and supports the Chiropractic Day on “the Hill” event in Nashville each year. He has participated in and supported the Health and Wellness Clinics in Campbell County. Dr. Redus donated to and helped raise funds and food for the Abused Children’s Center in Campbell County and for others in need. He was honored as the Tennessee Chiropractic Association’s Chiropractor of the Year in 2008.
Dr. Redus’ favorite hobbies have been flying small planes, especially his 1947-T Craft, spending time with his family and camping. He and his wife Dana had three children J.L., Wayne, and Anna.
