We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Mac Gearheart and his team to the AlignLife Franchise. He joins as our third clinic in Indiana and we can’t wait to see the impact he will have on the people of Fishers! We want our patients to be able to connect both personally and professionally to their doctors. To help accomplish that, we put together a New Clinic Spotlight for all incoming franchisees to give an insight to how they tick.
Dr. Mac Gearheart
What made you want to become a Chiropractor?
My grandmother had a lot of health problems for a couple of years. We had no answers and no one could give us any answers. She had some neck pain so she went to see a chiropractor. Little did we know what such a profound impact it would make on her health. Not only did she no longer have neck pain, but she was also not having the other health problems that no one could figure out. When I saw the impact that chiropractic had on her life, I knew I wanted to be able to do that for other people’s lives. I switched from physical therapy to chiropractic and the rest is history.
What technique do you practice and what are the benefits?
Pierce Technique – It’s unique in that it utilizes motion x-ray with spinal thermography to help assess where and exactly what to adjust. It’s one thing to say you can do something, but when you use x-ray and thermography to prove it, it gives the patient comfort and confidence in the care they are receiving (and results).
What is your favorite thing that patients ask you about?
My family and experience with chiropractic.
What is one thing you see all the time in your community that can be helped with Chiropractic?
Migraines, headaches & allergies – I see these constantly day in and day out. I am amazed at the amount of people that are not aware there is a natural solution to their problem.
If you could give your community just one health tip, what would it be?
You only have one spine, so take care of it.
If you had to describe yourself in five words, what would they be?
What’s the number one item you would save from your burning house?
My vintage sport card collection.
Aside from necessities, what is one thing could you not go a day without?
Going to the gym.
Do you have any guilty pleasures?
Whenever I get the chance to sleep in!
Why did you choose the area you are practicing in?
My wife is from this area and when I visited I fell in love with the area and the people.
For what in your life do you feel most grateful?
My health and my wife & son.
Do you have a specialty or area of focus that you love working with?
I enjoy working with athletes and women during pregnancy.
