Proper mechanical function is an important key to developing proper movement patterns. Proper movement patterns allow the body to operate at its best. When the body operates at its best, injury risk is reduced and athletic achievements can be realized. Our goal is to improve mechanical function and movement patterns through the use of chiropractic care, manual therapy, movement screens, and exercise prescription. Being located inside Crossfit Blue Blood is a great advantage because it allows us the facilities to assess patients in a world-class facility.
Dr. Nathan Williams
Dr. Williams earned his chiropractic degree from Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis, MO where he also completed his clinical internship.

Prior to the chiropractic profession, Dr. Williams aspired to become a professional golfer. As a junior golfer, he led his high school team to back-to-back 5A State Championships at Olive Branch High School (Olive Branch, MS), participated in many SJGT and AJGA tournaments, and won several regional tournaments. He attended Lipscomb University on an athletic scholarship to play golf at the NCAA, Division I level. Dr. Williams then went on to pursue a career in golf as a professional. He was a PGA of America golf professional apprentice as an Assistant Professional at Cherokee Valley in Olive Branch, MS and at Colonial Country Club in Jackson, MS (under former PGA of America President, Ken Lindsay).
Nathan returned to school to follow a passion for academia with the intention of blending knowledge of golf and human performance. He earned Dean’s List academic accomplishments in chiropractic school and received a high honor when he was chosen to be the Senior Intern Assistant in the outpatient clinic system. He has had the privilege of working with world-renowned athletes from several sports and gain experience in the latest approaches to physical rehabilitation.

When I first saw Dr. Nathan Williams, I had a winged scapula on the right side with muscle spasms so severe that I had difficulty even raising my right arm. As a competitive age group triathlete, this was devastating. Dr. Williams knew exactly what to do, and had me back on track in time for my races. After seeing several other medical professionals and being told that “nothing could be done”, this was above and beyond expectations. I am impressed with his thoroughness, professionalism, expertise, and personal commitment – he has since helped convince me to seek further treatment for foot pain (which turned out to be a stress fracture), as well as assisted me in getting an appointment with a sports orthopedic for a severe ankle sprain involving some torn ligaments. I would drive four hours to see him, and knowing this he helped me find an excellent ART practitioner and chiropractor who is only fifteen minutes away from me. He still consults with the doctor I see and is always willing to help advise on what treatment is best for me. I am so thankful I was lucky enough to find him!
I have been treated by Dr. Nathan for the last year and a half. While being very active in CrossFit and the mother of a two year old (with another baby on the way!), maintaining my health and body is crucial. He has completely rid me of any lower back pain and continues to work towards improvement in my shoulders, hip flexors, and neck. He is the best there is and I’d HIGHLY recommend him for anyone looking to improve their health!
