Chiropractor Gainesville, Dr. Cooper Cline

Dr. Cooper Cline, D.C.

During Dr. Cooper’s years playing football, he got a neurovascular compression injury known as a burner stinger. With a brother in chiropractic school, he decided to try the natural route. After an adjustment, Dr. Cooper’s problem was gone, with nothing invasive required.

Dr. Cooper was inspired to attend chiropractic school, choosing Palmer College of Chiropractic in Port Orange, Florida.

While earning his Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Cooper got a chance to hone his adjusting skills. He learned several effective techniques that he uses in practice today. “I love to problem solve with people and help them figure out what’s going on with their health.”
