Biography of Dr. Gary Draper, DC

  • Dr.
    Gary Draper

    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.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I have benefited tremendously from the chiropractic care I received from Dr Guinn"
    Bryan R.
  • "I have been a patient of Dr. Amy Guinn for almost 10years. I was very skeptical of chiropractors when I finally decided to visit her. She was a patient with me and explained everything in terms I could understand. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing chiropractic care."
    Michelle H.
  • "Friendly and knowledgeable staff with a welcoming atmosphere. The facilities are beautiful, and the hydrotherapy table is fantastic!"
    Courtney S.
  • "I have two herniated discs in my lower back. Because of my spinal decompression with Dr. Amy Guinn, I am much better and I don't think I will need back surgery."
    Mary W.

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
