Dr. Morningstar graduated in 2002 from Palmer College in Davenport. He then moved to Grand Blanc, MI and opened his first clinic, the Grand Blanc Spine Center. A year later, he opened his second clinic, the Anchor Bay Spine Center, in New Baltimore, MI. Both of these clinics have now become the Natural Wellness & Pain Relief Centers of Michigan, one of the first multidisciplinary clinics offering comprehensive chiropractic, traditional medicine, pain management, acupuncture, anti-aging medicine, and functional medicine services in Michigan. There he serves as the Director of Chiropractic Services. Dr. Morningstar provides comprehensive chiropractic rehabilitation and functional medicine strategies for complex spine and neurological disorders such as Scoliosis, ADHD, and Fibromyalgia/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
He currently serves as the Director of Research for the Pettibon Institute, the non-profit education arm of the Pettibon System, a position he has held since 2003. His goals have been to actively promote, perform, and generate funding for Pettibon research projects.
Dr. Morningstar is a founding member of the Society on Scoliosis Orthopedic and Rehabilitation Treatment (SOSORT). This group was officially founded in 2005 in Milan, Italy, and is comprised of top physicians, chiropractors, physical therapists, and orthotists from around the world. It is through this society that Dr. Morningstar continues to spread the word about the non-surgical, exercise-based scoliosis rooted in the Pettibon System according to the concepts of ARC3D.
Dr. Morningstar’s unique combination of training allows him to care for difficult, chronic pain patients who have tried everything else. By combining the Pettibon System with other unique modalities, such as MUA, functional medicine, kinesiotaping, and spinal orthoses, Dr. Morningstar’s patients have achieved an exceptional track record of recovery and healing.
When Dr. Morningstar is not in his clinic, he devotes his time to his wife, his two sons, maybe a round or two of golf, and his ongoing journey of scientific publication. Dr. Morningstar has been published several times in the biomedical peer-reviewed literature, and is currently working on three books on such subjects as scoliosis and healthy living.
