Q&A with Dr. Matt McCoy

Q: What do you hope to have D.C.s achieve by taking your courses?
A: I hope that chiropractors who take my course will be better educated on the management of vertebral subluxation in a vitalistic and salutogenic model. Chiropractors need to know that there is a rich literature base to support such care and that there are risk management strategies unique to the chiropractor practicing in such a model.

Q: Who inspires you professionally?
A: My chiropractic heroes are all the legends I learned from personally – many who are no longer with us. John Grostic, Burl Pettibon, Don Harrison, Vern Pierce, Larry Webster, J. Clay Thompson – I could go on, but these people instilled in me a love for pure chiropractic and an attitude that it must be protected.

Q: How do you recharge or do you have any tips on maintaining longevity in this profession?
A: I try to expose myself to people in the profession who are trying to advance it and are, at the same time, adhering to our fundamental principles, as opposed to trying to change what chiropractic is or expand its scope into other disciplines just for the sake of money, self-esteem, or acceptance.
