Why We Started Core Medical Center
In 1973, Dr. Patrick Goldsworthy D.C founded the very successful Blue Springs Chiropractic Health Center. Though he and Dr. Aston Goldsworthy D.C, MSN, FNP-BC practiced side-by-side for years in this thriving center, both doctors began to notice that many of their patients would return months or years later with the same exact problem. Although patients significantly improved and most were even symptom free for long stretches, the root cause of their discomfort was not permanently corrected. Both doctors envisioned a multi-disciplinary medical practice where they could identify the cause of the problem and treat it instead of just treating pain (symptoms) without addressing the underlying source of the injury.
To make this vision a reality, Dr. Aston Goldsworthy D.C., MSN, FNP-BC returned to nursing school and completed a Bachelors in Nursing Science and Masters level Family Nurse Practitioner program which allowed him to become board certified. This added degree coupled with the collaboration of a medical doctor and a Rehab team gave rise to Core Medical Center.
Now, Core Medical Center provides comprehensive care for neurological, skeletal and soft tissue injuries. Since the medical team resides under one roof, Core Medical Center can effectively communicate and provide specialized care for patients on a level unmatched by any other therapeutic model.
We use a combination of the best of medicine and physical medicine to achieve amazing results and eliminate the risk of side effects that can often come with surgical approaches and prescriptive pain medication.

Dr Aston Goldsworthy D.C., MSN, FNP-BC, began his career as an associate in his father’s clinic in 2009. He introduced a new spark into an already thriving practice that ignited immense growth in the clinic. Dr. Aston Goldsworthy had a vision to expand the level of care and the procedures that the clinic could provide to its patients.
