Taking Control of Your Health
Tennessee Osteopathic Center (TOC) is a direct primary care practice that operates on a monthly membership fee and does not accept insurance which allows you and your doctor to make the final decision about your healthcare. The membership fee is paid directly to TOC so you know upfront how much your healthcare will cost.
As a family medicine physician, Dr. McCurry is trained in the comprehensive care for all ages and genders throughout every stage of life. At TOC we are dedicated to treating the whole person – body, mind and spirit. We know that minor problems can become major as we age, and it is our goal to recognize those minor problems and stop disease before it starts.
The Care You Need, When You Need It
In today’s world, there are so many options for healthcare that it can be overwhelming to know where to start. As one of our direct primary care patient, you receive access to your doctor 24/7. There is no “squeezing you in” between other appointments, making you feel rushed. When you have an acute issue, we can see you same or next day.

Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM) is a drug-free, non-invasive, hands-on medical treatment that focuses on total body health by treating and strengthening the musculoskeletal framework. This holistic approach to healthcare uses manual techniques known as Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT) to provide overall good health and well-being.
Acupuncture is one of the oldest forms of traditional Chinese medicine and is still used today in integrative medicine. It is a technique that involves stimulating specific points on the body by inserting thin needles into the skin.

There are four beliefs at the heart of an osteopathic practice that our clinic is modeled after. They are:
The person is of one body. To treat the body, we must treat the whole – body, mind, and spirit.
The body is capable of self-regulation, self-healing, and health maintenance.
Structure and function are mutually intertwined. One cannot work without the other.
Treatment is based upon an understanding of the basic principles of body unity, self-regulation, and the interrelationship of structure and function.
The Five Models of Osteopathic Treatment
Biomechanical – Aims to optimize the structure and function of the musculoskeletal system to enhance the body’s innate homeostatic mechanism
Respiratory/Circulatory – Aims to normalize respiratory and circulatory components of homeostatic responses to improve nutrient delivery and waste removal
Metabolic/Energetic – Aims to utilize the body’s biochemical processes, cellular functions, and energy consumption to facilitate the homeostatic response
Neurologic – Aims to normalize nervous system function, including somatic and autonomic nerves, to allow for proper communication and restoration of health
Behavioral – Aims to optimize mental, emotional, and spiritual influencers of health to pattern a milieu of nourishing behaviors
