Our Doctors

Dr. Tom W Martin, DC

Dr. Tom W Martin, DC

A Kansas native, Dr. Martin has been a New Mexico resident for 22 years.  As an undergraduate, Dr. Martin began his educational experience with a biology degree from Wichita State University in Wichita, Kansas. 

Afterward, Dr. Martin earned his Doctorate of Chiropractic from Western States in Portland, Oregon.  He enjoys helping people achieve their optimum health by enhancing their natural ability to heal through chiropractic care. 

Dr. Martin delights in developing an effective treatment plan for each patient and providing affordable and convenient chiropractic care without the hassles and limitations of insurance. He enjoys an active lifestyle of hiking, biking and walks with his dog.  Reading and playing music are also some of his life passions.

Dr. Doug Meints, DC

Doug Meints grew up as a Navy junior, spending his early years in Japan and California and finishing high school just outside Tacoma, Washington. In 1973, he accepted a Presidential nomination to the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland and graduated four years later with a Bachelor of Science degree in oceanography.

Doug then attended Naval Flight Officer training, qualifying as a jet navigator.  Between 1979 and 1983 he flew hundreds of hours from the decks of the aircraft carriers USS Constellation and USS Ranger with Fleet Air Reconnaissance Squadron One. The missions took him from the eastern edge of the Soviet Union, south to Australia and as far west the African Coast and the Persian Gulf.

Leaving active military duty in 1984, he attended Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis, earning his Doctor of Chiropractic in December of 1987. He then spent the next 26 years in private practice near Philadelphia, PA. In 2004 he became one of the first chiropractors to measure the effect chiropractic has on human performance, brain function and stress. He continues to study the brain and nervous system and applies that knowledge in day-to-day practice.

Friends and family finally convinced him he should return to the West (New Mexican food and sunshine helped) and, in 2013, he moved to Albuquerque for good. He is a private pilot, an animal lover and outdoorsman.

Dr. Norm Toy, DC

Dr. Norm Toy, DC

My name is Dr. Norman Toy and I have been a licensed practicing chiropractor in the state of New Mexico since 1987 and held licensure in Colorado for several years as well. I have practiced in the communities of Farmington, Albuquerque, Santa Fe and Espanola and am happy to be on staff at The Joint since December of 2013. I have a wealth of practice experience and I enjoy delivering chiropractic care which may include forceful, low force and non-force techniques, myofascial and trigger point soft tissue release as well as instruction in proper stretching, home traction. My personal bedside manner is laid back, compassionate and thorough and my byword is Loving Kindness. I enjoy a healthy sense of humor to cushion the stresses and demands of life and to energize my interactions with my patients and to help them shed the stresses of the day while they are on my table.  My style of practice ranges from non-force, low-force to more firm manipulation techniques depending on the requirements of my patients. I have really enjoyed The Joint and the wellness concept which is front and center there. It is refreshing to be in a practice that welcomes walk-ins and makes Wellness through consistent chiropractic care affordable. My other passions are skiing, hiking with my year-old puppy Bodhi, playing in numerous local musical groups, sound design, audio recording and post production for theatrical, video film and music productions.  I look forward to serving you as your chiropractor at The Joint. I can be reached at if you have questions or concerns.
