Meet Dr. Cory Harkins

Dr. HarkinsAs he loves kids, Dr. Cory initially wanted to be a pediatrician. While in college, he shadowed a few medical doctors, eager to learn what they thought of their profession. He would always ask, “If you were me and you could go back and do it over, would you do what you’ve done?”

Surprisingly, very few folks in the medical profession said, “yes.” He reflected on how stressed the medical doctors were and how unhappy they were with the direction of American medicine. Dr. Cory also realized that the allopathic medical model didn’t resonate with him.

Chiropractic Education and Techniques

A college friend who was studying to become a chiropractor showed Dr. Cory how chiropractic care was a natural way to wellness. That’s when he decided to attend Palmer College of Chiropractic, known for being the birthplace of chiropractic care. He then moved to Portland, Oregon. There, he believed the studies at Western States Chiropractic College would allow him to combine medical and chiropractic care.

In addition to possessing a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Cory is highly skilled in many types of techniques. In particular, he performs the nasal specific technique. It’s an adjustment through the nasal passageways using a balloon. This method can help sinusitis, headaches, facial pain and failed nasal surgeries.

They currently offer high-power class 4 laser therapy.

Trusting Your Body

Chiropractic is about trusting the body to make the correct decisions for itself. You also need to take responsibility for what you put in your body, what you think and what you eat. Then you let the body do the job of healing and staying healthy. That’s the opposite of being reactive and putting in drugs and medications to try to fix what we think is wrong with the body.

Offering Wellness Care, Not Sick Care

In practice since 2009, Dr. Cory has witnessed firsthand that the medical model we follow in America is failing. “It’s bankrupting us. If we don’t change and take responsibility for our lives and our lifestyles, we can spend 5 trillion more dollars and will be sicker than we were before unless we start making healthy decisions.”


Helping Young Families and Pregnant Women

Dr. Cory is particularly passionate about caring for young families. Many of the children we see at the practice are involved in sports, and they can benefit greatly from chiropractic. Every child can benefit from chiropractic!

He also loves working on pregnant women throughout their pregnancies. Dr. Cory can help make the pregnancy more comfortable for moms-to-be. His children were all born at home and received their first adjustment when they were five minutes old. They’ve been adjusted since.

In His Spare Time

Dr. Cory was born in Minnesota and raised in Indiana. He and his wife Lindsay have been married since 2013. They have two Irish twin girls and a son. When he’s not working, Dr. Cory tries to spend as much time with them as he can.

Knowing the importance of health, Dr. Cory stays active running. When possible, he embraces the Fishers community by helping out at Itown Church and participating in 5k runs for local charities. He also enjoys camping in the great outdoors.
