Dr Payton was adjusted from birth and throughout his childhood by his father, a Chiropractor in the central valley. He grew up in his father's practice witnessing firsthand the healing that would take place and realized at a young age that being a Chiropractor is not just a profession, it is a lifestyle. Since it has always been Dr. Payton's goal to be a Chiropractor, he made sure to attend the oldest and most prestigious Chiropractic school in the world, Palmer. While in school Dr. Payton pursued his personal training license as he understood the benefits of combining Chiropractic care and exercise. He also volunteered his time to serve on the Palmer Sports Council where he gained extensive training taking care of athletes with sports injuries. Over the years , Dr. Payton has worked in four different practices perfecting his skills as a Chiropractor.
