Dr. Peter Cox
Growing up, Peter Cox wanted to be either a minister or a detective. He ended up a chiropractor, which he says combines the sensitivity of a pastor with the analytical approach of an investigator.
Cox’s unusual background and skills have drawn national attention from Inc., Psychology Today, Today’s Health and Wellness, Chiropractic Economics, The Charlotte Observer, and other publications. He has written for The Charlotte Business Journal.
Cox was a National-Champion Sabré Fencer at the Pennsylvania State University and a fourtime All-American when he injured himself while training for the U.S. Olympic Team. Though physical therapy helped, he later re-injured his back and sought help from a chiropractor. That relationship inspired him to enroll in chiropractic college in 1992. Within four years, Cox became the nation’s #1 ranked sabre fencer and earned the top spot on the U.S. Olympic team in 1996. That same year he graduated as a Doctor of Chiropractic from Cleveland Chiropractic College, in Kansas City, MO.
Cox opened the Chiropractic Care Center in 1997. It grew to be a multi-disciplinary office offering chiropractic and physical therapy. His expertise was sought after in 2001 by the PGA Tour and Champions Tour. For three years, he was one of only a handful of chiropractors who treated the country’s top golfers.
Today, Cox has focused his expertise on the management of multidisciplinary medical offices. “I’ve always seen myself as a strong team leader,” he says. “My nickname when I was in college was ‘The Catalyst’. I love to motivate patients, staff, and myself. I am fortunate to be able to work with healthcare offices providing this unique care to the Charlotte community.”
Cox is motivated by a quote from Thomas Edison: “The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.” With the epidemic of narcotics affecting our nation, those are words that mean more to Cox than ever and he wishes to share with all who are motivated for a healthier life. Cox is married to Heidi and is the proud father of Brianna and Andre. In his free time, he gives lessons at local fencing clubs, enjoys tennis, sailing, and cars.
