Meet The Doctors

Dr. Luis Alvarez, D.C. is a Chiropractor at Southpoint

Dr. Alvarez grew up in Colombia, South America. He has had a passion for health care for as long as he’s been alive. He first graduated at the age of twenty from the Pontifical Catholic University of Puerto Rico with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. He worked for a little over three years as a critical care nurse in the ICU and the ER in his hometown. This kind of experience helped Dr. Alvarez become the excellent man and chiropractor that he is today. It also means that he knows how to stay calm in the tensest and most time sensitive situations possible, so you can trust him to have a steady hand and take the best care of your chiropractic needs. He won’t ever lose his cool under pressure, and you can rest assured that he’ll take the very best care of every patient he has! It all goes back to that passion for healthcare and helping others, that’s what drives any good doctor to do quality work in any field, from a chiropractor to a cardiothoracic surgeon.

Chiropractic Care Promotes Better Health

Later in life, his passion for health care drove him to pursue a Doctorate in Chiropractic at Sherman College in South Carolina, where he obtained his degree as of March 2018. Dr. Alvarez says that he chose the chiropractic professional path due to its focus on promoting health rather than treating disease. The best treatment for any condition is preventing it before it can happen. While much of a chiropractor's time is spent treating problems such as back pain, shoulder pain and many other common problems, the primary focus is always improving and promoting an individual's overall health. We love being able to take a healthy person and fortify the efforts they’re making in their life. Our goal is always to use non-invasive treatments to better your health, in the end that’s the best thing you can do for yourself. Regular chiropractic evaluation and adjustment can help keep you healthy for a very long time to come! The value of living a healthy lifestyle can’t be understated or undervalued. Dr. Alvarez is all about promoting better health in any area of your life that you can. Dr. Alvarez loves living and working in the Durham Southpoint area. He also enjoys a good book, jogging on the greenway and drinking black coffee in the mornings. His favorite quote is credited to man by the name of Kahlil Gibran, “To understand the heart and mind of a person, look not at what he has already achieved but at what he aspires to.” As you can tell, Dr. Alvarez is always aspiring to make himself both a better chiropractor doctor and a better person as to him they go hand in hand.

For Dr. Tyler Ledford, chiropractic care is a passion that was waiting for the right time to manifest. His burning desire to be a chiropractor didn't show up until age 22 when he got involved in an incident that resulted in his first adjustment. At this point, Dr. Ledford discovered chiropractic was real, and he immediately thought of how he could use it to give millions of patients a life they had always wanted. This led Tyler to pursue a career in delivering chiropractic care, and he received his Doctorate of Chiropractic from Life University in 2017.

Dr. Ledford’s love for learning is second to none. It was this burning desire to know more that led him to study chiropractic, but it didn't end there. He still went on to specialize his study in different areas like public health, wellness, and kinesiology.

He has been using this natural method since his chiropractic workdays in North Raleigh, Garner, and Chapel Hill. Now, he is using the same method at The Joint Chiropractic in Durham, NC.
