Dr. Kyle S. Jackson graduated from the University of Florida (UF) with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology. He also played football for the university from 2004-2008 and was a member of the 2006 National Championship team. During his football career, Dr. Jackson sustained a career-ending back injury requiring surgery. He was told he would never play football again.

Not only did he heal from his injury, Dr. Jackson went on to play the game he loved and joined the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after graduating from UF.
Following his football career, Dr. Jackson continued to be amazed by the miraculous healing he’d experienced from his chiropractic care. As a result, he enrolled in the Palmer College of Chiropractic in 2009 and graduated in 2012, receiving his Doctorate of Chiropractic.
