Our Destin Chiropractor

Meet Dr. Alan Payne

Meet Dr. Allan PayneHello, I am Dr. Alan Payne.  I grew up in Hesperia Michigan.  In high school I started dating my now wife, Juli. I enjoyed racing motocross, snowmobiling, skiing, and fishing for salmon on the White River.  I lettered in football, wrestling and track.

After I graduated from Northwestern Michigan College, I was accepted to Life University, School of Chiropractic.  I believe God called me to be a Chiropractor, and with this purpose, I began learning everything I could about the philosophy, art, and science of Chiropractic.  The philosophy I studied was that of D.D. Palmer, discoverer of Chiropractic and B.J. Palmer, the developer of Chiropractic.  I have collected a library of the original Green Books which were written by the Chiropractic founders.  The President of Life University, Dr. Sid E. Williams was very influential. His leadership of the Chiropractic profession, and on the philosophy of life and health were instrumental in my development as a chiropractor.  A true friend with unwavering support for chiropractic.

The Art of Chiropractic is the application of the adjustment to reconnect and restore life and health to the body.  While at Chiropractic College I was certified and taught the Gonstead Technique.  I worked with Dr. Larry Webster, the grandfather of Pediatric Chiropractic. He developed the Webster Technique, which is used for pregnancy and pediatrics. I was President of the ICPA (International Chiropractic Pediatric Association) at Life University and taught the Webster Technique.

Upon Graduation from Life University in 1993 my wife Juli and I moved to St. Augustine, Florida where I did an internship with Dr. Danita Thomas. In April of 1995, Juli and I opened Payne Chiropractic Wellness Center.  I feel very blessed to serve this community that we call home.  Juli and I have four amazing children, Makayla, Jacob, Nathan, and Alyanna, which were all home births and/or water births.  We enjoy living in Destin and being a part of this great community.
