Chiropractor Eric B. Morris D.C.
Dr. Morris' Brief Biography
Youth: Dr. Eric B. Morris was born on July 6, 1965 in Danville, Illinois as the fifth child of Fred, a union electrician, and Ellen, a homemaker and later a social service administrator. Dr. Morris and his older siblings (Kelli, Jamie, David and Kevin) gained two more siblings in 1970 with the adoption of two cute young boys: eighteen-month-old Michael and four-year-old Daniel. It took a few years for Dr. Morris to shed his resentment over losing the social status and all the perks of being the “baby” of the family. (He truly did eventually learn to love his younger brothers.) The rest of Dr. Morris’ childhood was relatively typical for a boy growing up in a rural area---baseball, bike riding, being picked on by older brothers, picking on younger brothers, exploring and farm work, etc. During the school year, Dr. Morris was always quite studious and always brought home a great report card. He graduated as valedictorian of his class from Bismarck-Henning High School in 1983. (As Dr. Morris crossed the stage to accept his diploma, he received a handshake and a kiss from the school board president, who just happened to be his mother.)
College: Dr. Eric B. Morris began his college career in electrical engineering at General Motors Institute in Flint, Michigan (now known as Kettering University) and later transferred to the engineering school of the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois. As his engineering education career advanced, he became more and more “stir crazy”---he was very good at the engineering coursework and his cooperative job with General Motors, but his heart and his interests were not in engineering. His interest in the life sciences and his desire to directly help people caused him to thoroughly investigate a possible career in mainstream medicine, podiatry, dentistry or chiropractic. The drug-free, surgery-free approach of chiropractic coupled with chiropractic’s biomechanical approach to the body made chiropractic the quite obvious choice for Dr. Morris. He shocked all who knew him by leaving engineering in his final semester though he eventually received his Bachelor’s of Science degree in Human Biology and Anatomy. Seeking a chiropractic career, he matriculated into Logan College of Chiropractic in Chesterfield, Missouri. There Dr. Morris excelled in both the academic and clinical aspects of his chiropractic education. In August 1993, Dr. Morris graduated with honors from Logan College with his Doctorate of Chiropractic degree. Dr. Morris passed all state and national board examinations and became licensed to practice in Indiana in August of 1993.
Career: Dr. Eric B. Morris considered many places practice, even Sydney, Australia, but he chose to settle professionally (and personally) in Indianapolis. Indianapolis was the perfect choice for him for two reasons: it is within a two-hour drive from his parents’ home in Illinois and it has all the pluses a large city can offer while the people give it a “small-town feel”. Dr. Morris entered into practice at his prior location in 1993, following the unfortunate early death of his predecessor, Dr. Bruce Chalker. In the fall of 2006, he expanded to his current location. Since 1993, Dr. Morris has successfully treated a great variety of patients with a wide array of musculoskeletal and nervous system disorders. As part of his ongoing drive to stay abreast of new chiropractic and medical information and also to improve his clinical skills, Dr. Morris is consistently attending continuing education seminars---much more than the twelve hours per year required.
Family: Dr. Eric B. Morris was rescued from bachelorhood in July of 1998 by his wife Betsy. A bachelorette graduate of the University of Louisville, Betsy is a hard worker who is also in business for herself. With his marriage to Betsy, Dr. Morris gained an instant family for Betsy has two beautiful daughters. Since he had first met them in 1995, his daughters have grown considerably in all aspects---Krissy is in Heron School of Art at IUPUI and works as a floral designer while Kory had to put college on hold due to the arrival of a beautiful baby girl (the first child for her and her husband) and then a baby boy. The grandkids have become quite the highlight of lives of Dr. Morris and his wife. Though Dr. Morris and his wife live in the Geist area, they hope to eventually move much closer to his office some day. As each year passes, Dr. Morris’ family continues to grow---he is up to over twenty-five nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.
