Dr. Andrew Owen, BA, DC
Dr. Andrew Owen, born and raised in New York State, was first introduced to Chiropractic after suffering a low back injury while playing basketball. After seeing a physician and receiving little relief from prescribed medications, he was referred to a chiropractor. He was amazed to find that he experienced a marked improvement following his first visit, and he was back on the court just a short time later.
After beginning his undergraduate studies at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY, he completed his bachelor’s degree and doctorate at New York Chiropractic College (NYCC). His time at NYCC exposed him to a broad variety of chiropractic techniques including Diversified, Thompson, SOT, ART, Gonstead, Flexion and Distraction Therapy, and Connectex soft tissue mobilization. Using these techniques he is able to treat a variety of conditions including: low back pain, neck pain, muscle sprains/strains, disc herniation, whiplash, headaches, TMJ dysfunction, migraines, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, and many others. After graduation, Dr. Owen began working in a busy, family-oriented chiropractic office in Westchester, New York, simultaneously building his own mobile chiropractic practice, treating patients in the privacy of their own homes. “One of the great benefits of working in a traditional office as well as in a home setting was that it exposed me to patients from all different walks of life each with their own unique case. So much of providing quality health care comes down to listening to your patients and working with them to find a solution”.
While visiting family in North Carolina, Dr Owen and his wife fell in love with the state and eventually made the choice to move down. Having recently settled in Apex with his wife and their two boys, Dr. Owen joined the Cary Chiropractic family. “ Our experiences in North Carolina have been so positive already. Everyone has been so kind and welcoming. I look forward to building a life here with my family and to serving the patients of Cary Chiropractic”.
