It is through this society that Dr. Morningstar continues to spread the word about the non-surgical, exercise-based scoliosis like the ScoliSMART BootCamp.Dr. Morningstar graduated in 2002 from Palmer College in Davenport. He is an attending chiropractic physician at the Natural Wellness & Pain Relief Center, one of the first multidisciplinary clinics in Michigan offering traditional medicine, pain management, chiropractic rehabilitation, acupuncture, anti-aging medicine, and functional medicine services. Dr. Morningstar is one of only a few chiropractic physicians triple board certified in chiropractic medicine, integrative medicine, and naturopathic medicine.

Dr. Morningstar’s unique combination of training allows him to care for difficult, chronic pain patients who have tried everything else. By combining the chiropractic rehabilitation and chiropractic neurology with other unique modalities, such as MUA, functional medicine, kinesiotaping, and spinal orthoses, Dr. Morningstar’s patients have achieved an exceptional track record of recovery and healing. Dr. Morningstar has been published several times in the biomedical peer-reviewed literature and is currently working on three books on such subjects as scoliosis and healthy living.
