Dr. Deva Watson
Dr. Deva Watson has a passion for healthcare that leads her to break glass ceilings as fast as she can find them. She always wanted to be a healthcare provider so she could help others. While pursuing her undergraduate degree at Albany State University, she discovered her calling when meeting a recruiter in her Biology class.
Dr. Watson graduated with her bachelor’s degree in 2019, then studied chiropractic care at Life University. She came to Statesboro to shadow Dr. FlorAnne Cruz, owner of Southern Chiropractic & Wellness Center, during her matriculation and fell in love with the practice. Since she was so inspired, Dr. Deva decided to intern with Southern Chiropractic & Wellness. Following graduation in 2022, she then joined the team!
Dr. Watson is a Board Certified Doctor of Chiropractic who focuses on eliminating the nerve interference causing dis-ease in the body. She loves cultivating an environment for her patients to learn more about their body mechanics and improving their overall health and lifestyle.
Deciding on Chiropractic
“I originally wanted to work as an Athletic Trainer for the NFL. While in a Biology class in undergrad, a recruiter from Life University stared me right in the eyes and told me, you’re going to make a great chiropractor one day. I looked back at him and told him I had no clue on what a chiropractor was! He then introduced me to the profession and invited me to Life Leadership Weekend to learn more for myself," said Dr. Watson. "After that weekend, I had completely fallen in love with chiropractic and Life University! I learned that I could help athletes on a greater level by just touching them. I knew I was called to this.”
Education and Certification
Dr. Deva Watson pursued her doctorate at Life University in Marietta, Ga. She became very involved on campus as soon as she stepped foot on it. During her first quarter, her favorite club was a chiropractic consulting student club. As a member, she was able to meet, visit, and network with numerous successful chiropractors across the country that poured so much wisdom into her. By the time Dr. Deva graduated, she was well equipped with how to serve, where to serve, and who to serve.
In addition to her doctorate, Dr. Deva has done extensive neuroscience research in multiple states. Her background includes research on Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) and Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs) in athletes. She has attended various seminars to enhance her skills and build her network community. Some of the seminars include the Professional Football Chiropractic Society, Integrity Doctors Seminars, and Sports Chiropractic Lower Extremity and Pelvis Workshop.
