Meet the Chiropractors

  • Dr.
    Gary Draper

    'When in high school I woke up one day and I could not move. I was freaked out. Why can't I move my body? I called my father into my room and he had to carry me to the car.' That was the day that I fell in love with CHIROPRACTIC, said Dr. Gary Draper.

    This was the first time I was ever adjusted. After my first adjustment I was able to move, and I also ran my fastest time in cross-country that night. Thank you Dr. Wolf, for fixing me and showing me how chiropractic can improve someones' life!

    Dr. Gary obtained his Doctorate of Chiropractic in 2012 from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. After graduate school, Dr. Gary continued to pursue his advanced training in Chiropractic Neurology and also became one of the few animal Chiropractors in the state of North Carolina using Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation. He has been helping patients ( humans and animals ) in the greater Lake Norman area ever since.

    Dr. Gary uses the “whole body” approach in treating his patients. He does not just treat your symptoms, but instead finds the root cause and issue. This can entail proper exercise, nutrition, neurology, neuromuscular and structural issues. Dr. Gary enjoys working on children (fresh out of the womb or inside the womb) to his oldest patients, who are well into their 90’s. All stages of life need chiropractic care to encourage optimal health.

    Dr. Gary enjoys the outdoors and anything sports related. He has a passion for running, doing mud runs and ironman races. You will also see him out on the kickball field coaching and playing. Dr. Gary also enjoys going to the dog park with his four dogs and wife. He enjoys cooking and hopes one day to publish his own cookbook for his patients to enjoy.

    While in school, Dr. Gary was very active and involved in certain clubs such as Animal Adjusting, Functional Neurology and Sports Council Club. He was also involved in two clubs pertaining to specific Chiropractic techniques such as Palmer Package and Gonstead. Dr. Gary was part of the Student Council, serving as Treasurer of his class.

    Dr. Gary looks forward to helping others at Holistic Healing Chiropractic, taking care of patients in the Cornelius and surrounding areas.

    Carolyn Oliver
  • "I have two herniated discs in my lower back. Because of my spinal decompression, I am much better and I don't think I will need back surgery."
    Mary W.
  • "I have three bulging disc's in my lower back, one of which is pressing against a nerve. Due to being in so much pain I have put a lot more pressure and such on my right foot as well. Doctors have given me medication that doesn't touch the pain, but Dr. Draper and Dr. Gary as most of his patients lovingly call him will reduce my pain level more than half in one visit. I can't Recommend this place enough."
