Spencer R. Callahan, DC
Dr. Callahan is a Fairhope native who has returned to the area after finishing chiropractic school at Life University, just north of Atlanta. He has always been an advocate for a healthy and active lifestyle, even dating back to his childhood. As a youth, he could usually be found on the soccer and baseball fields at Volanta or Stimpson park if he wasn't on the bay throwing his cast net.
During his time at Fairhope High School, he was a starting member of the varsity soccer and football teams for three years, helping guide the soccer team to three straight final four appearances from the central defense. During his senior year in 2000 he was selected by the FHS faculty as the W.C. Majors award recipient, given to the top student athlete in each graduating class.
He went on to play football at Iona College in New Rochelle, NY, where he was the starting kicker and punter all four years he was in New York. During his time at Iona, he earned multiple All-Conference and Academic All-Conference awards and was named Iona College football special teams player of the year after his Junior and Senior seasons.
Dr. Callahan was introduced to chiropractic while recovering from reconstructive knee surgery at the age of twenty-four. As a former college athlete and physical fitness fanatic, he became fascinated by the health sciences and the chiropractic approach to health during his recovery from knee surgery. Within a year he was enrolled at Life University and began pursuing his doctorate in chiropractic.
While at Life University, he took a keen interest in both radiology and sports medicine. He credits the guidance and mentorship of radiologist Dr. Bruce Fox and sports chiropractic specialist Dr. Ashli Linkhorn for helping him develop a profound respect for the human body and its potential.
