Dr. Parker Watkins
Dr. Parker Watkins is a local Fayetteville resident who has spent the majority of his childhood here as well as completing his bachelor degree from the University of Arkansas. He knew that he wanted to be a doctor at an early age but it wasn’t until after college that he realized the type of doctor he wanted to be was a Principled, Doctor of Chiropractic. After seeing the sick care model in the medical field, he desired to help others get well without the use of drugs or surgery. Seeing and understanding the benefits of chiropractic care for children, his goal was to specialize in pediatric and prenatal care while also serving entire families. He graduated chiropractic school from Parker University in Dallas, TX and then moved back home to serve the people of Northwest Arkansas through principled chiropractic care.
After struggling with sinus infections for many years and never seeing true relief from taking multiple antibiotic medications, Dr. Watkins finally has been free of sinus issues after being under regular principled chiropractic care. He knows that from removing the nervous system interference in his neck the body has been able to keep his sinuses clear, in turn, keeping him free of pain and headaches that come with these issues. You too can benefit from principled chiropractic care in this regard!
Dr. Watkins loves being outdoors and spending time in God’s creation. He loves to hunt and fish and spend time taking walks and exercising with his family in beautiful Northwest Arkansas. His wife (Amanda- office manager) and son (Gauge) are the loves of his life and he loves having them as part of this family business.
