Born and raised in Kansas, the new owner of The Chiropractic Centers, Dr. Staten McClacherty, grew up in Council Grove until his family moved to Topeka, where he graduated. Chiropractic did not hold a particular interest until he developed a chronic back pain which did not respond to conventional treatment. The day after his first chiropractic treatment, the pain began to decrease and was gone in a few weeks of care. Dr. Staten attended Cleveland Chiropractic College where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science of Human Biology and a Doctorate of Chiropractic. In addition to Chiropractic, he is certified in kinesiological taping and has completed over 275 hours toward a post-graduate degree in the diagnosis and managment of internal disorders by the American Chiropractic Association’s Council on Diagnosis and Internal Disorders.
