Dr. Tom Williams, Family Chiropractor

Hey there, I’m Dr. Tom. Most days you can find me with a cold brew in my hand while enjoying the outdoors, and exploring the unique neighborhoods of Chicago with my family. I am most known for being Oliver’s dad and the chiropractor behind Roots Family Chiropractic. 

My mission is to inspire the families of Chicago to experience health differently. My practice is 50% pediatrics, and I wouldn’t have it any other way! I truly believe that children are resilient rockstars who deserve to live a healthy, happy life. As a chiropractor and fellow parent, I am your family’s biggest advocate and strive to educate, encourage, and support you through your journey into true health. 

As a family chiropractor that loves baby-wearing, I have also been featured on ABC news, CBS, Popsugar, Upworthy, Morning Dose, and more. Dying to know why? Check it out: https://rootsfamilychiro.com/press/


Lauren Williams, Office Manager

Hi there, I’m Lauren! I am Dr. Tom’s wife and mama to our little explorer, Oliver. I am a lover of oat milk lattes, outdoor hikes, and relaxing with a good book. I am mostly known for being the boss lady behind the front desk, and “the sticker holder” at Roots Family Chiropractic- which is seriously the BEST job there is.

I have a huge heart for holistic living and sharing all things motherhood. My journey into motherhood has been one I will never take for granted- from the lows of miscarriage, to the highs of a beautiful home-birth, and everything in-between- I would love to walk along side of you! Empathy is my #1 strength and I will be your listening ear and biggest cheerleader all wrapped into one.

If you didn’t know, I am also the writer behind our blog and social media extraordinaire at Roots Family Chiropractic. If you wish to know more about a specific topic, I would LOVE to know. Let’s walk through the journey into health together! You can reach me at info@rootsfamilychiro.com.

Katiepan Harrington, Chiropractic Assistant

Hi Everyone, my name is Katiepan Harrington and I am so excited to be joining the team at Roots Family Chiropractic. I just moved back to Chicago after graduating St. Olaf College this past spring majoring in Exercise Science & Managment and I am enjoying the city life.

I love spending time with my family, friends, meeting new people and living a healthy, active lifestyle. At St. Olaf College I was actively involved in a variety of sports, served as the Strength & Conditioning coach for the St. Olaf Rowing team, and this past year became an ACE certified personal trainer. 

My mom has always been a huge advocate for holistic health and when it was time for me to pick a major in college she suggested I looked into Chiropractic care. It was a natural calling for me and after doing more research and shadowing a practice in Minnesota as well as an internship, I was hooked. I love the idea that the body can heal itself naturally and I want to be part of that experience for children and adults. Currently I am taking a gap year and applying to Chiropractic graduate programs hoping to start in the fall.


Oliver Williams, Play Area Coordinator

Hi, I’m Oliver. I am the cuteness behind Roots! I am an absolute mama’s boy who loves being outside, people watching, and exploring like a champ. I am a true #ChiroKid who has been adjusted since I was only a few minutes old by my dad, Dr. Tom! My favorite snacks are hummus and gluten free pretzels, and I can give a pretty dang good hug. You will most likely see me in the office on the occasional Saturday, hanging out in the play area with a toy in each hand.
