Chiropractic Beginnings

Dr. Carter was born in Detroit, Michigan to loving parents who valued family and hard work. He was raised on the East side of Detroit by his mother and a father who worked in the automotive industry.

At fourteen, Dr. Carter made his money shoveling the snow on the neighboring driveways of his house. After a particularly fierce Michigan winter, his back was in excruciating pain from the work, but Dr. Carter was lucky enough to have a neighbor who was a highly respected local chiropractor. This was Dr. George Dubbs, and he was gracious enough to provide the young Dr. Carter with in-home adjustments. After his first adjustment, Dr. Carter felt an immediate wave of relief. He knew right away that his future path was as a chiropractor, providing that same type of instant relief and improvement to people every single day.


Dr. Carter attained his Doctor of Chiropractic degree in 1993 from the National University of Health Sciences.

During his first semester, he was particularly affected by the study of applied Kinesiology. This is the study of the muscles, muscle functions, and how they can relate to all aspects of the body. Learning in depth about the fascinating ways that the body functions really helped Dr. Carter understand not only how intricate the body is, but also helped him realize that through kinesiology, he could combine chiropractic, acupuncture, nutrition, and mind body medicine together in order to better help his patients.

Servicing the Beautiful Raleigh Community

Dr. Carter began practicing in 1993, and moved to North Carolina to start his practice in 1994. Dr. Carter chose the Raleigh area specifically because it was consistently ranked as one of the best places in the nation to live. Desiring to provide the best in upscale chiropractic and holistic health care, he knew it was the right place to begin his practice. Dr. Carter has been a proud member of our beautiful community for over 25 years. He has loved watching Raleigh grow, and between the positive, friendly, health conscious people, and the proximity to both the mountains and the ocean, he knows he made the right choice all those years ago.

Dr. Carter lives and practices in the Bedford / Falls River Community of North Raleigh. When not in the office or spending time with his family, Dr. Carter can be found cycling on the greenway, shopping at Whole Foods, swimming in the pool, or exercising at Life Time Fitness.
