Dr. Harmony Dawson's chiropractic career got it's beginning right here in Marshall on G Drive after a run in with a patch of black ice. After an ambulance ride to the Oaklawn Emergency Room, she was released with severe back and neck pain. After a couple weeks of not being able to stand or walk without assistance, her medical doctor here in town told her to go to a chiropractor. The chiropractor noticed on her X-Rays that she had small fractures on two of her vertebra and her spine was severely misaligned. Thankfully it was something he could treat. After a few adjustments she began walking straight again and was able to start to kick around a soccer ball. At that moment, Dr. Dawson decided to become a Chiropractor.
She attended EMU and then on to MSU and finished with a BA in Human Biology. Dr. Dawson then enrolled at the prestigious Logan College of Chiropractic, graduating as a doctor of chiropractic. Dr. Dawson met her husband, Dr. Brent Dawson, while at Logan College and they began two very successful practices in Lexington, KY where they employed 12 staff including 4 doctors, and two massage therapists. They have helped thousands of patients over the last 12 years and both Dr. Dawsons are trained in multiple techniques and have treated everyone from the 94 yr. old woman to a newborn baby to the high school athlete.
In 2015, they bought a house in Marshall to renovate. After spending many long weekends here, the Dawson's decided to raise their kids here. They love the town and the people. So they began the long process of selling their practices in Kentucky and moving to Marshall. The Dawson's are very excited to start the rest of their lives in the wonderful community.
Dr. Brent Dawson, D.C. grew up in Florence, KY whose path to chiropractic is similar. At the age of 14 he started having severe lower back pain. He was unable to bend down to the floor to do something as simple as tying his shoes. Sports and other activities were completely stopped due to the pain. After a few weeks without improvement from his pediatrician, his mom took him with her to the chiropractor. The improvement happened very quickly and he decided at 14 to become a chiropractor. 'I don't know what he did, but I want to be able to do that (for others),' he remembers telling his mom.
Dr. Brent attended the University of Louisville on a full academic scholarship. He graduated in 2000 with honors with a BS in Biology (pre-med). He received a BS in Human Biology from Logan College in 2002. He received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Logan College in December, 2004.
Dr. Brent has a passion for using manual adjustments for patients with severe lower back or neck issues. He finds that his technique allows him to help many patients that have not gotten relief elsewhere.
