Dr. Beachy believes that chiropractic is the greatest healing profession known to mankind, because it focuses on the body’s in-born ability to heal itself. Today’s healthcare system, on the other hand, focuses on pharmaceutical drugs or other interventions that focus only on symptoms, rather than addressing the root cause of dysfunction. Dr. Beachy knows that our bodies are designed to be self-healing and self-regulating when properly controlled by our brain and nervous system without interference. By correcting dysfunction in our spines, we are able to remove these interferences that arise from life traumas, both big and small, and allow our bodies to function optimally, adapt to stress better, become more resilient, and ultimately live our lives to the greatest potential.
Dr. Beachy’s greatest passion within chiropractic is the science, philosophy, and art that composes the philosophy behind chiropractic. He loves educating patients on what is really going on inside of them and helping them understand why they feel the way they feel, but more importantly what they can do to feel their best. He also has a passion for functional nutritional health and has done hundreds of hours of post-doctorate training in functional medicine and nutrition so he can dive further in his patient’s health issues. He believes functional medicine is the future of true healthcare, rather than the “sick care” model we are stuck in now. Functional medicine utilizes cutting-edge lab tests analyzing blood, urine, saliva, stool and/or hair to determine the root cause of one’s health issues and even detect dysfunction before one may become symptomatic. Many of these tests are not utilized by the majority of medical doctors yet. After analyzing the tests, he is able to determine what body systems are dysfunctional at a biochemical and cellular level. He then puts together customized plans utilizing whole food nutrition, high-quality supplements, and lifestyle changes to help his patients achieve greater and optimal health and well-being.
Since a very young age, I have always known that I wanted to be in the healthcare industry. I got to see how my father, who is a primary care medical doctor, took care of his patients and made such an impact on their lives. They all truly loved him and they knew how much he cared for them. The summer before my senior year of high school, I was chosen for a summer program in a local hospital where I got to shadow all areas of the hospital and see the different specialties. It was there that I got to see a total hip replacement… and it rocked my world. I thought, “How cool is it that we can take people apart and put them back together again to help them?!” From there, I had my heart set on becoming an orthopedic surgeon. Growing up playing multiple sports in Arkansas, it became my dream to eventually become the team doctor for the Arkansas Razorbacks.
In 2012 after completing my undergraduate degree in exercise science, with a pre-med concentration, I decided to take a year off from school to gain more experience in a health care setting in hopes to “boost” my resume. It was then that I had my first experience in chiropractic. I got my first “real job” (excluding being a life guard and a waiter) at a multi-disciplinary chiropractor’s office as a rehab tech. There we had multiple physical therapists, chiropractors, a nurse practitioner, and a retired orthopedic surgeon all working together. It was there that I got to see first-hand the true healing potential of chiropractic. I began to realize that not all people who are told surgery is the only option actually require surgery. In fact, many people were able to delay having surgery or avoid surgery all together by utilizing conservative chiropractic care in this setting. From there I eventually decided to withdraw all applications I had sent to medical schools and began applying to universities with doctorate of chiropractic programs.
I was accepted to Parker University in Dallas in 2013 and began as soon as I could after being accepted. I spent the next four years immersing myself into the science, philosophy, and art of chiropractic. It was nothing short of a life-changing experience, both physically, mentally and spiritually. While there, I became more and more interested in nutrition and what our bodies need to heal naturally to complement my chiropractic knowledge and skills. This inspired me to begin working towards my Diplomate status with the American Clinical Board of Nutrition and to become certified in functional medicine.
Upon completion of my doctorate in chiropractic in 2017, I moved back home to Arkansas to begin my chiropractic career and start serving my community.
When I am not serving patients, I can be found with my fiancée, Abby, and our two dogs, Sonny and Ziggy, enjoying all that Arkansas has to offer.
