We wanted to find a place where we felt at home and we liked the idea of a smaller community as I grew up in a small town. We also wanted to be closer to the mountains as we love hiking, camping, and biking.
I came in contact with Dr. Jim Halvorson, in August 2014 after seeing that he was interested in finding someone to take over his practice, as he was relocating to California.
My wife, son and I fell in love with Black Mountain on our first trip here even before I met with Dr. Halvorson for the first time. So it was very fortunate that Dr. Halvorson and I had similar practice styles and philosophies on patient care. We moved to Black Mountain in October 2014 and I took over the practice on November 1, 2014.
My name is Dr. Dan Bennett. My wife Angie and I moved to North Carolina in 2011 where I worked as an associate Doctor of Chiropractic at a well established Chiropractic clinic outside of Charlotte. I then opened a satellite clinic for a Chiropractic group based out of Greensboro, NC. With our son Joshua getting closer to starting school we began looking for the ideal place to raise him and settle down.
I am originally from Bradford, PA a small rural town in Northwestern PA (home of Zippo lighters and Case knives). I completed my undergraduate studies at Indiana University of Pennsylvania in Indiana, PA graduating with a BS in Biology and a minor in Chemistry. I had originally planned to go to Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport Iowa, but as plans often change, I decided to take a break from my education and I moved to Florida with some friends following graduation.
I met my wife Angie while I was working as an analyst at the corporate offices of a cruise line based in Fort Lauderdale, FL. After an evaluation of our common goals and developing a five year plan (that turned into a 7 year plan!), we set our sights on North Carolina. Angie went back to school to finish her Nursing Degree and I then went back to school to get my Doctorate in Chiropractic.
I graduated Summa cum Laude and Valedictorian from Palmer College of Chiropractic, Florida Campus in December 2010 and we moved to North Carolina three months later. Palmer teaches a combination of Chiropractic techniques (including Diversified, Gonstead, Thompson Drop Table, and Toggle Recoil, and I also took elective courses in Activator, Flexion-Distraction, Spinal Decompression, Sports Injuries, and Pettibon Technique) which I continue to use in practice based on the individual patient's wants and needs.
Dr. Jim and I both have similar interests in integrated care and strive to work within the medical community providing evidence based care for musculoskeletal disorders. We have similar philosophies based on quality patient care (not quantity) focused on keeping the patient functional and moving.
