Destin Chiropractor Dr. Alan Payne

Dr. Payne began his pre-med education at Northwestern Michigan University where he studied the basic sciences such as inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, biology, along with basic physiology and anatomy courses. After completing his study there, he was accepted at Life Chiropractic College in Marietta GA. During his four years at Life, courses included biochemistry, a major emphasis on anatomy and human physiology, X-ray, diagnosis, chiropractic adjusting and techniques. After graduating in 1993 Dr. Payne and his wife Juli moved to Destin, Florida to establish his practice. Dr. Payne is married to Juli and they have four children, Makayla, Jacob, Nathan, and Alyanna. All four children were born at home and the last three were water births. Juli chose to have water births at home in a birthing pool called an AquaDoula. None of the kids have ever received a vaccination or an antibiotic. Dr. Payne specializes in the Gonstead Art of Chiropractic, and Pediatric Chiropractic techniques taught from Dr. Larry Webster.

Dr. Jake Morgan

Destin Chiropractor Dr. Jake Morgan

Dr. Jake grew up in the small town of Finlayson, Minnesota. He was very involved with sports (football, basketball, golf and track). He had worsening neck pain and migraines throughout junior high and high school until he was introduced to chiropractic care during 11th grade. It was the first relief he had in 4 years.

After grad school Dr. Jake went to Northwestern College of Chiropractic in Bloomington, Minnesota. He studied all the major techniques including Applied Kinesiology, Advanced Biostructural Correction, Activator, Torque Release, Thompson, Diversified, and of course Gonstead. He chose the Gonstead technique because of it’s specificity.

In 2009, Dr. Jake opened River of Life Chiropractic in Jordan, MN and remained there 5 years until the opportunity to come down to sunny Florida. He is pictured with his wife, Alyssa, and their two girls, Elliana and Cadence. The girls love going to the beach! Alyssa is a former special education and middle school math teacher.
