Dr. Larry Hawkins, DC
Dr. Hawkins had his life changed when he was injured as a teenager, while wrestling. After seeing an orthopedist who told him he needed surgery, he eventually saw a chiropractor that took x-rays of his lower back after the injury and told him that his severe pain was caused by his spine putting pressure on his nervous system. The Chiropractor proposed lining up the spine, removing the pressure on his nerves, allowing his body to function better and thus heal. Over the next few weeks he went in for adjustments. This was so successful and life-changing that he decided to become a chiropractor. This was the science and practice that was able to get him out of pain without surgery or medication.
After college, he attended Life Chiropractic College in Hayward, CA where he received his Doctorate of Chiropractic in 1999. After graduation, Dr. Hawkins traveled with other chiropractors to Cusco, Peru to give Chiropractic care to thousands of Peruvians who could not afford it otherwise. He also worked in Spain before beginning to practice in Florida in 2003. In 2009, Dr. Hawkins was the team chiropractor for the American LeMan’s 12 hours of Sebring race. In 2010, Dr. Hawkins moved to Palm Beach County and has been serving this community ever since.
