Awards & recognitions
Dr. Phil McCary was a chiropractic patient long before he ever thought of becoming a Doctor of Chiropractic. His first adjustment was before he can remember, but the story goes like this. His father had a severe lower back injury that made it impossible for him to work on the family farm. He had sought the advice of many doctors with no answers until being referred to the local small-town Chiropractor. Dr. Phil was only a few months old and had been constipated for about one week. Dr. Phil’s father was telling the chiropractor about this at one of his visits and the doc said, “Let me take a look at him.” She performed a few gentle adjustments and the little family headed out. By the time they made it home Dr. Phil’s little baby Osh-Kosh overalls were overflowing, the flood gates were open!
