Dr. Alex Williams DC, MS, CCSP
Dr. William’s journey to becoming a chiropractor started in junior high when he was involved in an accident while camping that injured his leg. This caused many problems in his low back and pelvis that affected how he played sports. He saw a chiropractor who helped alleviate his pain, allowing him to play sports and a much better level. This event helped Dr. Williams understand the importance of Chiropractic care. He already knew that he wanted to be in the medical field but this showed him another option of how to help people with pain and other medical conditions.
Dr. Williams uses chiropractic care to improve health and wellness in all areas of his patient’s lives, whether they were just in an accident or are having problems with low back pain or neck pain. He loves to work with athletes and help better his patient’s lives as well. He takes a “whole person view” when taking care of his patients and takes pride in finding the underlying cause of pain to provide the best care possible and not just treat the symptoms. Dr. Williams uses a hands-on technique and is current with the newest tools and technology to provide the best care to help his patients move towards better health.
Dr. Williams attended Brigham Young University and then attended the University of Western States for his professional training. He earned his Bachelor Degree in Biology, his Doctorate of Chiropractic degree and a Masters of Sports Medicine degree.
