Carbondale Chiropractor Dr. Gary Latimer

Born Into Chiropractic

Dr. Latimer likes to say “I grew up a chiropractor – I just didn’t know it!”

With a father who was the President of the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners, President of the State Board of Chiropractic in Pennsylvania, and a regional director on the east coast, all he knew as a kid was chiropractic!

A Witness to Chiropractic Miracle Stories

But unlike some chiropractic kids who grow up with wellness sewn into them instead of loving chiropractic because they see it radically change a life, Dr. Latimer was also blessed to see more than one amazing chiropractic miracle as a kid.

When he was young, his mother broke her back in several places during an accident in a snowmobile race. She was completely paralyzed and in an ambulatory state for 6 months. Doctors said she would never walk again.

“Do I even need to tell you the rest of the story?” Dr. Latimer likes to say, as he smiles and talks about his 78 year old mother playing golf 3 days per week, traveling the world, and doing all the things she should be doing right now as she enjoys this season of her life.

During his college years, Dr. Latimer himself suffered a tragedy where his right leg was almost cut off in a motorboat accident. He was in a wheelchair for 9 months, but he says “After tons of adjustments and lots of praying, it hasn’t slowed me down.”

In practice now for over 29 years, Dr. Latimer graduated from National College of Chiropractic in 1988. The Carbondale Chiropractic Center office has been here for over half a century, and we are proud to serve Carbondale and the surrounding communities, changing one life at a time.

Most of Dr. Latimer’s personal life is focused around his family. He and wife Samantha have a daughter and two sons – Giana, Elijah and Grayson – who they raise together in Susquehanna County. Dr. Latimer is passionate about the outdoors when he is not spending time with his family.

“I love to see young people come into this office and know that because they’re getting care from the beginning, they won’t have to deal with the issues adults who’ve never cared for themselves do. I love to watch people come to the other side. They come in to be treated for leg or back pain and months later they realize their ulcerative colitis is gone and their blood pressure is down! It’s awesome to see people find answers to what they’ve been searching for 10 years to find.”
