Born and raised in St. Louis, Dr. Frank Harris, D.C., is thrilled to now be serving patients as our chiropractor at Chiro One Wellness Center of Alton.
Dr. Frank’s first experience with chiropractic started early. As a child, he was prone to suffering from intense headaches for weeks at a time. His doctor put him on opioids to manage the pain, which was so severe that Dr. Frank couldn’t go to school. It was even starting to affect his personality and how he interacted with others. When medication stopped helping, his father took him to see a chiropractor. After only a few months, Dr. Frank was feeling much better, and he no longer needed opioids to manage the pain.
With a passion for helping others, Dr. Frank always knew he wanted to be a doctor, but his own experience finding relief from chronic pain really solidified what kind—a chiropractor. After achieving his bachelor’s at the University of Missouri, Dr. Frank went on to earn his doctorate of chiropractic at Logan University. He is certified in Active Release Technique (ART), Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS), Titalist Performance Institute (TPI) Functional Movement Systems (FMS) and Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA). He is also a member of both the Missouri Chiropractic Physicians Association and the American Chiropractic Association.
Dr. Frank’s mission in practice is to show people that there are other options when it comes to feeling better, moving better and living a more enjoyable life. He loves seeing patients be able to return to activities that they were unable to do before starting care.
In his spare time, Dr. Frank loves golfing, fishing, hiking and spending time with his wife and daughter. A giver at heart, Dr. Frank is passionate about giving back to his community; he and his wife have done work for both the Susan G. Komen Foundation as well as Ronald McDonald Charities.
