The Doctor

Dr. Alexander Carr, D.C.

Doctor of Chiropractic

While serving in the United States Navy, Dr. Alexander Carr aided many sick and injured Marines and Navy personnel as a hospital corpsman. To his dismay, many service members were treated with medications to hide their aches and pains instead of treating the cause of their pain. After witnessing countless lost military careers and huge sums of money paid out by our government to compensate for the disabilities caused by these injuries, Dr. Carr knew what to do. Following his honorable discharge, he pursued a career in the footsteps of two generations before him, thus becoming the 8th Chiropractic Physician in his family to practice this noble healing art. He understands the benefits of Chiropractic and the need to treat the cause of the symptom, not the symptom!

A Brief History Of The Carr Chiropractic Family

The first recorded chiropractic adjustment was performed on September 18, 1895, by Dr. Daniel David Palmer, a Canadian-born teacher and healer. Dr. Palmer was, at the time, studying the cause and effect of disease. Since Dr. Palmer's first chiropractic adjustment, the art and science of chiropractic has progressed significantly, beginning with the establishment of the Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa.

Upon taking over as president of the Palmer College of Chiropractic, Dr. B.J. Palmer found himself in the midst of turmoil at the young school and a schism occurred, in which half of the faculty, staff and students departed to begin a new chiropractic school. The following paragraphs chronicle the Carr Family's history after the "great schism" (Joseph Keating, Ph.D.)
