Dr. Michael Coon is the owner of Alpha Medical and Spinal Care in the Charleston, SC area. When he initially opened Alpha Care, he wanted to provide conservative treatment for pain that he believed could serve as an alternative to surgery. Dr. Coon’s idea for this type of practice was derived from his medical experience as a Navy Corpsman in the Charleston, SC Navy Hospital. This experience prompted him to become a chiropractic physician and drove him to open a practice that would employ both medical physicians and chiropractors to provide more efficient treatment for common medical problems.
After serving as a Navy Corpsman from 1974-1978 in Charleston,SC, Dr. Coon graduated second in his class from the Medical University of South Carolina in 1980 as a respiratory therapist. He then attended Life Chiropractic College and graduated Magna Cum Laude in 1983. In 1984, he opened his first facility on James Island. Since then, Alpha Care has expanded to include locations in North Charleston, West Ashley, Mount Pleasant, and Summerville.
