Chiropractor Waco TX Shamonica Trunell


Shamonica Trunell D.C.

I am a native of Fayette, MS and attended Alcorn State University where I graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science Degree in 2000. Following my bachelor’s degree, I enrolled at the prestigious Parker College of Chiropractic.

I have since graduated Cum Laude after a 4-year intensive program as a Doctor of Chiropractic. I am board certified by the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners and am a member of the International Chiropractors Association.

Prior to coming to the Waco area, I served the Seattle community for 7 years. I enjoy treating patients of all ages, from infant to geriatric. I am passionate about chiropractic, particularly in conjunction with nutrition and exercise. I welcome the opportunity to care for patients in a holistic manner. I implement a wide variety of chiropractic techniques to individualize patient treatment plans. My experiences have given me a great opportunity to learn to care for a wide variety of ailments from which my patients may suffer.

My patient-first attitude is what enables me to treat patients with dignity, respect and compassion. My personal and professional goal is to make a difference each day through my commitment to partnership and passion about service. My mission is to restore health through natural chiropractic and functional nutrition, allowing my patients to live their lives to the fullest.

I grew up in Fayette, Mississippi in a small close knit community, where morals and values were very important. I have been married to my husband Robert for 13 years. We are a Christian family with an eighteen-year-old son named Malik, a nine-year-old daughter named Samiyah and a two-year-old daughter named Sarai. Our passion and prayerful longing for true community has led us to this wonderful Waco community. We could not be more happy to begin the rest of our lives here in Waco!

I was born in Manhattan Kansas but attended Logan University in St. Louis Missouri where I graduated with a Bachelor of Human Biology, certifications in Physical therapy as well as a Doctorate in Chiropractic in 2016.

Prior to Attending Chiropractic School, I spent 15 years working as a Massage therapist with extensive studies in Myofascial Bodywork, Therapeutic Kinesiology, as well as multiple techniques ranging from Swedish Massage to Shiatsu, Reflexology, and other deep tissue modalities.

Having Injured my own body working for many years building residential and commercial buildings with my own Construction company I could not believe the results that Chiropractic delivered. I was so impressed I changed Careers so that I could help others like I was helped. I believe that more people need to be introduced to the Natural healing Chiropractic Provides.

I truly enjoy creatively applying to the human body the same theory from construction that

“A strong foundation leads to a true and correct structure”.

To this day I believe this holds true for the human body as well.

Having come from parents with a great sense of adventure I have followed family from Maine, where I first learned Massage, to Alaska, where I learned Myofascial techniques and many other modalities. From there I went all the way into Canada and down to Mississippi Where I first learned about the Integrity Doctors. I worked with Dr. Moore at Moore Chiropractic in Mississippi for a year, as an Integrity Doctor Intern, and for the last year, I have been expanding my skills and knowledge with Hillcrest Chiropractors, another great Integrity Doctors team.

As Patient First doctors we perform full exams and X-rays, if needed, as well as work with all ages from infants to the elderly. We take the time to sit with you and share our findings and are really excited to help you on your journey to wellness.

I sincerely look forward to meeting you in our office here in Gatesville but also know that the office in Waco TX has an amazing team of doctors also waiting to serve you if you are not in the Gatesville area.
