Biography of Dr. Gary Draper, DC
Dr. Gary obtained his Doctorate of Chiropractic in 2012 from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. After graduate school, Dr. Gary continued to pursue his advanced training in Chiropractic Neurology and became one of the few animal Chiropractors in the state of North Carolina using Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation. He has been helping patients ( humans and animals ) in the greater Lake Norman area ever since.
Dr. Gary uses the “whole body” approach in treating his patients. He does not just treat your symptoms, but instead finds the root cause and issue. This can entail proper exercise, nutrition, neurology, neuromuscular and structural issues. Dr. Gary enjoys working on children (fresh out of the womb or inside the womb) to his oldest patients, who are well into their 90’s. All stages of life need chiropractic care to encourage optimal health.
Dr. Gary enjoys the outdoors and anything sports related. He has a passion for running, doing mud runs and ironman races. You will also see him out on the kickball field coaching and playing. Dr. Gary also enjoys going to the dog park with his four dogs and fiancé. He enjoys cooking and hopes one day to publish his own cookbook for his patients to enjoy.
While in school, Dr. Gary was very active and involved in certain clubs such as Animal Adjusting, Functional Neurology and Sports Council Club. He was also involved in two clubs pertaining to specific Chiropractic techniques such as Palmer Package and Gonstead. Dr. Gary was part of the Student Council, serving as Treasurer of his class.
Dr. Gary looks forward to bringing his skills to Pierce Family Chiropractic, taking care of patients in the Cornelius and surrounding areas.
