    An avid tennis player, Dr. Gallagher was not always a chiropractor.  Working in Dallas, TX as a systems analyst for a large telecommunications firm, he hurt his back while playing tennis.  He saw his PCP and was prescribed meds which of course gave him relief.  But after some time the meds wore off and the pain was back.  Unable to play tennis he decided to seek out a chiropractor.

    Being a very analytical person, the chiropractic model of care made sense and soon he was back on the court.  That experience had such a profound effect that a few years later he moved to Davenport, Iowa to attend Palmer College of Chiropractic (The Fountainhead of Chiropractic).  

    Long story short, Dr. Gallagher now has been earning the trust of thousands of patients in the South Charlotte area since 1997.  He and his wife, Tammy, are still very active playing USTA tennis, Dr. Gallagher utilizes a 'team' approach to care utilizing an active patient care program that is tailored to the specific needs of the patient. Dr. Gallagher states 'The patients that take responsibility for their health have the best outcomes'.

    Now understanding the additional health benefits of chiropractic and a natural healthy lifestyle, Dr. Gallagher tries to instill a healthy lifestyle into all his patients.
