Dr. Marc Papantonio, D.C., A.R.T., SFMA

Dr. Marc is a full body and masters certified provider of Active Release Technique, and also specializes in performance kinesiology taping using the protocols he learned through certification with RockTape. He graduated from Furman University with a degree in Health & Exercise Science and then spent several years as a personal trainer before entering the Chiropractic program at Life West Chiropractic College, graduating magna cum laude and receiving honors for his clinical internship. During Chiropractic school, Dr. Marc focused on the evaluation of human movement and is an expert in biomechanical assessment. He believes that functional rehabilitation of basic movement patterns is an essential component to successful injury management and recovery. In addition to his knowledge of anatomy, Dr. Marc also spent many extracurricular hours studying nutrition and its role in the treatment and prevention of disease.

Coming from a medical background (father is an emergency room physician), Dr. Marc has always had a passion for health and wellness. However, his father was not your typical MD, and from an early age Dr. Marc was taught a holistic approach to health care with an emphasis on prevention of injury/disease. His proactive approach to health lead to a successful career as a multisport athlete and coach (soccer, basketball, volleyball, track and golf). It is this combination of academic and athletic experience that allows him to accurately diagnose and treat a multitude of sports/repetitive use injuries
