DR. SAMUEL ALEXANDER
DC, MS, EMT
Clinical Nutrition Specialist (candidate)
Dr. Alexander's introduction to chiropractic came through numerous concussions in sports as a teenager that left him unable to move his neck along with frequent migraines. After seeking treatment through many different health care providers he was referred to a chiropractor through a soccer teammate. After a few visits, there was a near resolution of neck pain, improved mobility, and elimination of migraines. Furthermore, a combination of chiropractic care and physical therapy was able to prevent lower back surgery after a fracture to his lumbar region.
He suffered from reoccurring tonsil infections with multiple rounds of antibiotics. His passion for learning more about nutrition came after he was able to avoid a tonsillectomy after introducing lifestyle, supplementation, and dietary changes.
These experiences drive Dr. Alexander's passion for providing non-surgical musculoskeletal care, nutrition and lifestyle interventions, and most of all patient education. The traditional medical model provides the ability for patients to survive significant health-related conditions. It is through a holistic approach that provides patients the ability to thrive.
