Daniel Boggs, DC, FIAMA, CFMP
Dr. Daniel Boggs is a chiropractic physician, acupuncturist and functional medicine practitioner. He has been in private practice in Beckley, WV since 2004 and has recently joined our team at Lake Norman Health and Wellness. His clinical focus is helping patients that suffer with chronic health challenges such as: chronic and severe spinal conditions, musculoskeletal conditions, chronic knee and joint pain, peripheral neuropathy, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, autoimmune conditions and various other types of chronic conditions.
Dr. Boggs began his studies at West Virginia University, graduating with a Bachelor Degree in biology. He then began his training to become a Doctor of Chiropractic, and graduated from Sherman College of Chiropractic in 2004.
After graduating, Dr. Boggs opened his practice in southern West Virginia, focusing on traditional concepts of chiropractic and the relationship between the structure of the spine and it's nervous control and impact on a person's health.
Dr. Boggs' clinical focus changed after a personal struggle with a severe health challenge. In 2008, he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. His condition was debilitating, and he was actually unable to walk unassisted for some time. After not finding any answers through traditional allopathic medical approaches, Dr. Boggs began to study functional medicine and functional neurology, with hopes of restoring his own health. By applying these techniques, Dr. Boggs began to gradually recover, and was symptom free after a year. He remains symptom free to this day. Because of this experience, his passion and mission, his goal has been to help patients that suffer with chronic and severe conditions.
