Meet The Doctors

Dr. Pat Kolwaite, D.C. is a Chiropractor at East Memphis

Dr. Pat Kolwaite was born in Atlanta, GA and raised in different parts of the country, including Little Rock and Syracuse, NY. He received his undergraduate degree in Microbiology from Auburn University in 1997. While a student at Auburn, he worked for the Tigers football team and saw the benefits and effects chiropractic care had on injured players. He decided that he wanted to deliver the same benefits to others and was accepted at Life University in Atlanta, GA, and received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree in 2001.

Dr. Pat married his college sweetheart, Monika, and moved to her hometown of Memphis upon graduation. He founded and owned Mid-South Chiropractic Center and is proficient in many chiropractic techniques, most often utilizing Diversified, Thompson Drop, and Activator techniques. Seeing the tremendous benefits that routine chiropractic care gave to people’s life, but frustrated by insurance restrictions and expensive out of pocket costs to the patient, he decided to bring The Joint Chiropractic to the Memphis area.

“The everyday stresses that cause so many of our aches and pains don’t go away. People still have to go back to work the next day or continue to put strains on themselves that their body wasn’t intended for. That’s what I love about The Joint. It allows people to affordably receive the care that they need and delivers it in a manner that is convenient to almost everyone’s lifestyle.”

In 2008, he was named to the Memphis Business Journal’s Top 40 under 40. He was named Franchisee of the Year by The Joint in 2017, and a finalist for the Memphis Small Businessman of the Year.
