Dr. Parker Ward grew up in Huntington, WV and completed his undergraduate studies in Exercise Science at Elon University. While he was at Elon, he injured himself while playing flag football which severely inhibited his ability to move. The next day he was referred to a local chiropractor, who explained how the spine helps the entire body to function at its best. His firsthand knowledge of how chiropractic improved his injuries, prompted him to enroll into Life University Chiropractic College in Atlanta, GA. As a 2015 graduate, he has been practicing in the Atlanta area at a large sports clinic.
What attracted Dr. Ward to the Weddington Wellness team, is his love of helping others achieve their peak performance with the holistic and integrated approach. Dr. Ward fits in perfectly with his certifications in sports rehabilitation and his experience in treating biomechanical and soft tissue therapies. He looks forward to being able to assist more patients at Weddington Chiropractic Wellness Center.
Dr. Ward’s wife, Alissa, grew up in the Charlotte area and attended Providence High School. They are excited to be back in the South Charlotte community with their family. They met at Elon University, and have three daughters, Katherine, Blake and Peyton. When they’re not chasing their kids around, they both love to spend time outdoors running, exploring different parks, and visiting with friends and family across the Carolinas.
