Dr. Sorum grew up in a small town in northern Minnesota. His parents owned and operated the local pharmacy, where he worked in the summers and after school from the time he was 12. When he wasn't working, he spent countless hours swimming, skiing, and fishing in the Leech Lake area. There he developed a deep love for the outdoors, and even today he feels calmer up north than in the city. Dr. Sorum's high school was small, and in 1990, he was part of a graduating class of 65 students. He participated in football, wrestling, and baseball. It was a wrestling injury that sent him to a chiropractor first time and began his journey to becoming a doctor himself.
Currently he owns and operates Twin Cities Chiropractic in St. Paul, Minnesota. He was married in 2006 to Bree Sorum, who also grew up in Walker. She is now a teacher in Mahtomedi, Minnesota. They have four children, two girls, and two boys. Their lives are very busy to say the least. When Dr. Sorum is not working he is definitely spending time with his children.
Dr. Sorum firmly believes in helping people to improve their lives by working on their overall health and not just pain symptoms. Although relieving pain is one the main goals of his office, he advocates that his patients make life choices that keep them on a path to good spinal health.
Joy recalls that when she was a young child, she would watch her father perform a massage technique similar to acupuncture. There’s not a specific term used for this unique method, but she was fascinated with the healing powers of this technique. Her true inspiration would stem from this significant memory. Being able to heal with massage was what she knew would be a rewarding path for her.
As a young woman, she loved working with her hands. So she’d help her mother cook, fix cars with her brothers, or take apart and reassemble small projects.
In 2000, she graduated high school from a small town in Wisconsin and took to her lifelong experiences to another state. Joy moved to Minnesota to pursue her interest in Culinary Arts.
Joy worked at a prestigious restaurant right out of culinary school where she led as Head Chef. Her culinary skill focused mainly on taste and texture, whereas her creative side leaned towards presentation and balance. After years of mastering and leading a successful life as a chef, she felt the need to take a different path in life.
Joy’s transition from the creative eye of a chef to the skillful hand techniques of a massage therapist started and continues to be an amazing journey. In 2014, she completed her Massage Therapy education at Everest Institute in Eagan, MN. She specializes in Deep Tissue with integrated massage techniques. Modalities often incorporated are: Myofascial Release, Manual Lymphatic Drainage, and Trigger-Point Therapy.
Currently she works alongside with Dr. Sorum, treating those patients related to auto injuries and rehabilitation.
She believes in the body's ability to heal itself with the help of massage therapy-which is one of the most beneficial paths to restoring health and wholeness to the body. She strongly supportand advises on self-care awareness. Her techniques and methods are adapted each session uniquely to accommodate to your health and wellbeing.

Tammy knew that she wanted to be a physical therapist since she was in high school. She suffered an injury while practicing gymnastics, and during the rehabilitation period she discovered that her passion was in the medical field.
Once she knew what she wanted to do, Tammy got her BS in Exercise Science from the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse. From there, she got her Masters in Physical Therapy from St. Ambrose University. It was there that she fully immersed herself in the foundation and principles of the healing art of physical therapy and how it works in conjunction with chiropractic care.
At the end of the day, Tammy’s goal is to enhance people’s quality of life, to keep them moving, and to keep them as free from pain as possible.
