Dr. Cory Ellerbroek, DC
I’m Dr. Cory, the clinic director and family chiropractor at Thrive!. And as you can probably guess, I have a passion for helping active families experience optimal health and a greater quality of living.
I have over a decade of experience in educating, inspiring, and empowering families to take control of their most important asset, their health.
I have been featured on Austin Expecting, Austin Mom’s Blog and One Million Kisses a Day, an online magazine for families.
I have worked with hundreds of active families – expectant mothers, infants, children, and adults.
My first experience with chiropractic was similar to many others, for the treatment of back and neck pain. My particular injury was suffered while racing motocross. After my symptoms quickly resolved, I knew I had found something special. I continued a cycle of injury and treatment several times before I began to notice an enhancement in my focus after getting adjusted by my chiropractor.
I began seeing my chiropractor regularly and attribute winning an ATVMX National Championship in 2003 to my enhanced focus. It was this enhancement in my focus and wellness that drove me to become a chiropractor.
When deciding where I wanted to attend chiropractic school, it was a no brainer that I would be going to the place where chiropractic originated, and what many consider to be the Harvard of chiropractic colleges, the prestigious Palmer College of Chiropractic. I began my education as a chiropractor mostly focusing on athlete performance and sports injury since that is what led me to this point, and when one of my first patients in student clinic was an expectant mother who I helped to experience a healthier and more comfortable pregnancy and birth, it ignited my passion for family health and wellness.
I am relentless in continually enhancing my skills and knowledge as a holistic health care provider. I have over two hundred hours of post-grad education – mainly in family wellness, extremity adjusting, and athlete performance. I have also become certified by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association in the Webster Technique to provide unparalleled care to expectant mothers. My experience in family wellness and athlete performance makes me uniquely qualified to help active families achieve their health and wellness goals.
And when I’m not in the clinic, you’ll often find me playing with my family outdoors. We welcomed our daughter, Emry, to the world during a beautiful and natural home birth on July 21, 2015 with the help of the amazing midwives at the Central Texas Birth Center. I enjoy appreciating nature at a slower pace with Bryce and Emry and our dogs Zoey and Kova while hiking, backpacking, and kayaking.

- I have a serious addiction for adrenaline. Motocross, skydiving, bungee jumping, mountain biking, rock climbing. You name it, if it gets my blood pumping, I’m down. I love mountain biking the technical trails that Central Texas has to offer. This is also part of the reason I continue to need chiropractic care for myself!
- I’m a closet geek. Video games, Sci-Fi, and fancy gadgets are my guilty pleasures. This is why my practice is driven by online scheduling, electronic health records, and some of the most high-tech examination equipment available to chiropractors: digital posture evaluation, infrared thermography, surface electromyography, heart rate variability, and more.
I would love to help you and your family experience greater health and get more enjoyment out of life. Go here to get our New Patient Schedule or call 512-808-8215 to set up your free consultation and find out how I can help.
