Millar Chiropractic Functional Medicine (Williams Ave)
Functional medicine is a personalized systems approach where the Doctor looks at the whole body as one naturally. Functional medicine gets to the "root cause" or true cause of a problem and not the symptoms and treats that true cause. It incorporated the use of sophisticated testing from traditional and functional laboratories to aid in finding the true cause.
Also located at the Williams Avenue location (on the same floor) are our sister companies, the Neuropathy Laser Treatment Center and Alabama Laser Spine Decompression clinics. Should you have neuropathy or spine related problems then visit on of those clinics.

Dr. Greg Millar, DC CCEP | Chiropractor, Founder & CEO of Millar Chiropractic Clinics. In 2015 Dr. Millar embarked on a new pathway, Functional Medicine. After 22+ years in practice and successfully treating thousands of patients with physical problems, Dr Millar wanted to do more for his patients with chronic diseases like Fibromyalgia, IBS, Anxiety, Hormone problems, Thyroid disorders and Diabetes to name a few. He saw the failure of traditional medicine in treating these chronic disorders. "The combination of Big Medicine and Big Phama just left so many patients on the sidelines with health problems and pain without a true diagnosis or treatment" stated Dr Millar. "I got frustrated seeing patients with shopping list of medications and their doctors not checking anything off their problem list." So Dr. Millar went back to school at Kingdom College of Natural Health and the Functional Medicine University and started taking classes in Functional Medicine. Along the way he slowly started treating some functional medicine patients. Somehow the word got out and the patients are coming in droves to see Dr. Millar for functional medicine. Dr Millar said, "I hope to finish my Naturopathic Doctor's degree in 2019. I will then sit for the NMD exam.
He still specializes in treating Herniated and Bulging disc at our sister company Alabama Laser Spine Decompression and Neuropathy at the Neuropathy Laser Center Huntsville. He is also a Certified Extremity doctor holding the CCEP designation. Dr Millar is known for his diagnostic "rock turning over" "find the root cause" practice. Dr Millar likes to say, "If you don't really know what is causing the problem, you can't fix it."
Dr Millar invented the "Millar Facet/Stenosis Table" with the "Millar Facet Protocol" to treat Facet/Stenosis pain from stenosis, degenerative facet disease, facet arthropathy, facet syndrome. He uses light force adjustments, disc pumps, decompression traction, core stabilization and other physiotherapy to treat bulged and herniated disc problems. Dr Millar practiced for years with the neurosurgeons of UAB Dept of Neurosurgery handling their disc and facet cases before and after surgery.
Dr Millar treats bulging and herniated disc, stenosis, degenerative disc disease and failed back surgery syndrome. He also treats Neuropathy and joint pain (ie. knee pain, hip pain, shoulder pain, carpal tunnel, wrist pain).
Dr. Bonnie Sims, ND M.Div | Naturopathy Doctor and Counseling. Dr. Sims joined Millar Chiropractic Functional Medicine in 2018. She holds a Doctorate degree in Naturopathy from Trinity College of Natural Health she is also holds a Masters Degree in Divinity, Theology from Emory University. She did her undergraduate studies at Athens State University where she is still Adjunct Faculty. She was formally with Decatur General Hospital.
She enjoys natural health care without drugs or surgery if possible. Like Dr. Millar, she tries to get to the root cause of health issues and treat the root cause and not the symptoms. She feels that health care in America has "gone off the rails." She stated that, "Health care today is not about the patient it's about money money money." Doctors have lost site of the patient and spending enough time with each to really discover what is wrong and what can be done to help them. In addition to treating her patients naturally she finds that so many of them have underlying emotional issues that need to be worked through and rearranged. The sheer amount of stress that people care today is unreal. She stated that probably 80% of weight gain is emotional or stress related. She and Dr. Millar consult on all patients so you get the best of both worlds.
