Dr. Cathcart was inspired to be a Chiropractor the first time he set foot in a Chiropractic office. Before that moment, he thought that he should only go to a chiropractor if he had a back or neck injury. As he watched the educational videos, it made total sense to him that the nervous system controls every function of the body and regular chiropractic adjustments keep all systems of the body working properly. He knew he could truly change people’s lives for the better as a Doctor of Chiropractic. Dr. Cathcart loves his work because he gets to see miracles every day. Besides relief of pain from injuries, his patients have experienced improved vision, clarity of mind and even improved function in the reproductive system. Babies have been born to mothers who have been told they could never have children, thanks to chiropractic adjustments! He’s also seen many of his patients with conditions like asthma, diabetes, and fibromyalgia improve with regular adjustments. These are just a few of the surprised results his patients have had as they’ve come in to get relief from back or neck pain.
Dr. Cathcart seeks to improve his chiropractic patients' health and wellness in all areas of their lives. Dr. Cathcart's goal is to treat the "whole person" in his work as a chiropractor, which means looking for the underlying causes of disease, discomfort, and pain, which usually arise from imbalances in the spinal column. Under Dr. Cathcart's supervision and care, patients report higher functioning in all areas of their lives. You are never too young or too old for a chiropractic adjustment. Dr. Cathcart recently adjusted his own first grandchild the day after she was born, and the Doctor’s mother enjoys optimal health because of her regular trips to the office. Families who get adjusted regularly have fewer illnesses and they recover quicker.
Dr. Cathcart has been happily married to his sweetheart, Carolyn, for 34 years. They have four sons, two daughters-in-law and 3 grandchildren. Dr. Cathcart has been involved as a coach and a sponsor with the Palo Verde Recreation League and Boy Scouts of America. All four of his sons have earned the Eagle Scout award. Both the Doctor and his wife devote much of their time serving in their church.
Carolyn manages the office and is a weight loss coach with the Ideal Protein program. Dr. Cathcart, Carolyn, and their staff will help to educate you so that you can make better choices towards a healthier lifestyle.
