"I got my life back because of Dr. Millar"
This is a powerful testimonial about a woman who was a dental assistant for 33 years and suffered from debilitating pain, as a result. Multiple doctors turned her away and told her there was no hope. She had tried a Chiropractor before and nothing worked. One day, while watching Dr. Greg Millar, on TV, she decided to give it, one more try. Here is the powerful story of what happened for a woman who had the courage to try one more time.."

Personal History: Dr Millar was born and raised in Cullman Alabama. There he attended elementary and middle school. In the 8th grade, he won the Alabama State Science Fair and a scholarship to Woodward Academy, Atlanta Georgia. During, Dr Millar's last two years at Woodward Academy, he was dual enrolled at Ga Institute of Technology (Ga Tech) in the Electrical Engineering program. He graduated from Elkins Institute at Georgia Tech. After receiving his FCC 1st Class Radio/TV Engineers' license, he joined the family business as Chief Engineer over 5 radio stations and 1 TV station. With the Vietnam war raging, that career was short lived as he was drafted into the armed forces and joined a special Navy/Merchant Marine program. After Basic, he was trained as a Navy corpsman completing is HM "A" school in Texas. He was then assigned to several nuke transport ships as a Fleet Corpsman. With the end of the Vietnam war the Navy had to draw down the force. He was released from his Navy/Merchant Marine commitment and honorably discharged. He went back to school at Barry University Miami Florida and received his Paramedic Diploma. He continued his education and finished his Bachelors of Science at Barry University in Miami, Florida graduating summa cum laude honors. He then worked as a paramedic for four years and was a member of the Palm Beach County, FL SWAT team. He was recruited by Grady EMS at Grady Hospital, Atlanta to be Chief Paramedic.
While doing a rescue Dr Millar had an accident. He then had his first back surgery. That event changed his life. A year later he had a second back surgery. A year after that he had back surgery #3. He stated that "he was in constant pain 24 hours a day every day." His brother suggested Chiropractic; but, Dr. Millar remembers saying, "I need a real Doctor, not a Chiropractor. I've had back surgery and NO Chiropractor is going to crack my back." Dr Millar expressed that 35 years ago Chiropractors weren't accepted like today. He further stated "At the time, he was scared of Chiropractors. He really didn't personally know what they did or didn't do. He was just scared of the unknown." He went on to say, "they were talking about another surgery at the time and my surgeon said "No Way" to Chiropractic." Dr Millar stated, "I got to the point that I had no other options. I had tried everything else and was still in terrible pain. Medicine had failed me. I had nothing else to loose, so I tried Chiropractic." "Within eight weeks my pain had dropped 50%. I was able to start getting off some of the pain meds. I had been in complete debilitating pain every day for three years and what finally got me out of pain was Chiropractic." For this reason, Dr Millar shared that he became passionate about sharing Chiropractic with others.
"I told my family that I was going to Chiropractic School," they laughed. They told me I was nearly 40 and too old. He started over again in college taking courses at two colleges to get the additional science courses he needed to get into Chiropractic school. He then attended Life University, College of Chiropractic where he was President of his Class, and President of the Student Body and Graduated in 1997 with Honors. In post graduate training he studied extremity adjusting (hips, knees, ankles, feet, shoulders, elbows, wrist. hands, TMJ and ribs) and earned his Certified Chiropractic Extremity Practitioner, CCEP designation. He passed all four parts of the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners as well as the Alabama State Board of Chiropractic Examination, Georgia Board of Chiropractic Examination and the Florida Board of Chiropractic Examination.
After graduation, he completed a year of chiropractic internship first under Dr Roy Sweat, DC and then under Dr. William Willis, DC. Both were marvelous teachers and I learned so much from each of them, Dr Millar said. I then moved to Alabama and started Millar Chiropractic Clinics in 1998 in a little house in Decatur Alabama. It grew quickly to 350 patients per week. So he brought on his first associate doctor.
For several years, as a professor, Dr Millar taught Anatomy and Physiology at several local colleges (Wallace State & Calhoun College). Dr. Millar in 2001 was approached by WAAY TV Channel 31 the ABC affiliate in Huntsville about developing a 30 minute live medical call in talk show. The Show "MedLine" was born in 2002 with medical doctors and chiropractors openly discussing their similarities and differences in treating various conditions. The show quickly gained a loyal following and was one of the top medical talk shows in Alabama with thousands watching each week. Many local area internist, orthopedist, neurologist, cardiologist, radiologist, and many others have joined Dr Millar on the show. Dr Millar completed over 500 TV shows.
In 2002 Dr. Millar started Millar Chiropractic Madison located at 1908 Slaughter Rd. That clinic quickly grew into one of the busiest clinics in Madison. Then in 2003 Dr. Millar started Millar Multi-Medical. Together with Univ Alabama Birmingham they opened the UAB North Outreach Clinic. Dr. Millar worked closely with UAB Dept of Neurosurgery and Dr. Mark Hadley, MD helping to develop the UAB Dept of Neurosurgery Chiropractic Care Team. The idea was to further train Chiropractors to integrate with Medical Doctors and specifically Neurosurgeons to provide conservative care to patients before surgery and rehabilitative care post surgery. The program was a great success. For 13 years, the Neurosurgeons from UAB Dept of Neurosurgery rotated weekly to practice at the UAB North Outreach Clinic along with Dr. Millar and his team of Chiropractors. With the purchase of Parkway Hospital and Decatur General Hospital by Huntsville Hospital in 2012, UAB closed the North Outreach Clinic and pulled all neurosurgery services back to the "mothership" in Birmingham to serve its primary patient base.
In 2004 Dr Millar Started Millar Chiropractic - Huntsville AL (Downtown) and moved some of his practice to the Downtown location. That clinic also grew exponentially. In 2008 Dr Millar purchased a clinic in Jones Valley and changed the name to Millar Chiropractic - Huntsville AL (Jones Valley). In 2010 Dr Millar started American Spine and Rehab to exclusively work on personal injury cases. In 2011 Dr Millar and Dr Jim Thacker, MD started Huntsville Pain Management. Dr Millar sold Huntsville Pain Management to Dr. Thacker when Alabama changed the law that a chiropractor could not own a pain management clinic.
