Dr. Mitchell McKean completed his Undergraduate Degree in Psychology in 1991 at University of Houston. He later went on to receive his Doctor of Chiropractic in 1999 at Texas Chiropractic college in Pasadena, Texas.
Dr. McKean enjoys working out. The main reason he decided to become a chiropractor is during a workout, while squatting and also bartending at the tender age of 24 found his back pain was so bad that he had to hold himself up to brush his teeth. One day someone recommended that he visit a Chiropractor. Within two visits he was 70% out of pain.
Then and there was when he decided he wanted to be able to help others as he himself had been healed. Dr. McKean has always enjoyed giving to others whenever he can. So, stepping into this position 20 years ago has guided him through the journey of seeing people improve their overall health with the knowledge gained through his schooling and experience.
When Dr. McKean is not working, he enjoys time outdoors, working out and as much as possible precious time with his wife Jill and his two daughters Bella and Olivia.
