Meet Dr. Anthony Davis

That High School Injury

No medications worked, no tests helped and he was told nothing was wrong. It wasn’t until chiropractic care that Dr. Davis found relief from the back spasms he’d been suffering from in high school.

{PRACTICE NAME} Chiropractor, Tony Davis and familyChiropractic care became something he could see himself doing every day. He was intrigued by the drugless, natural approach to healing that chiropractic care offered.

Seeking a Hands-on Career

After graduating from Madrid High School in 1993, Dr. Davis attended Iowa State University to get a degree in genetics and begin the path toward biotechnology research. While working in a lab, he realized his passion was not for research; it was to see research be able to help people and make a positive impact on their life.

I decided that I wanted to help people directly on a day-to-day basis.”
