Dr. Scott Allen graduated from Life University’s College of Chiropractic in 2004. He ranked high academically, a tribute to his dedication and passion for his work. Initially, he practiced just outside of Atlanta, Georgia. After several years in private practice, Dr. Allen moved back home to South Carolina in 2007, and relocated to Columbia in 2009. Dr. Allen has studied and trained in several advanced structural corrective chiropractic techniques. He maintains a unique focus on the upper cervical spine. He has developed an analysis system using proven indicators to identify a person’s Primary Structural Shift. It is this exacting and definitive focus that allows us to target and resolve complex structural issues. Outside of his extremely satisfying work, Dr. Allen enjoys his time with his wife and family.

Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

I have a singular focus. I focus on Structural Correction of the spine. It is a demanding process, and I believe that my ability to do that one thing with excellence explains the amazing results we achieve.

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

We only focus on Structural Correction of the spine. However, since a Structural Shift is a Primary Condition, it will cause and create one or many Secondary Conditions. You can learn more at

What are you proud of in your practice?

We are most pleased with our consultation process. At our office, a consultation is a conversation in which we are able to see if working with each other makes sense. The consultation is always complimentary.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

We particularly enjoy headache and back pain cases. These types of problems are all too common, unfortunately, and are poorly resolved with other methods. Structural Correction can be the missing key that unlocks the solution, and improves quality of life.
