Dr. Anthony Hambright

Dr. Hambright was born and raised in Gastonia, NC. As a child, he played several sports but in
high school his main focus was on football. He suffered 3 concussions before going on to be a
division 1 athlete at Elon University where he played for 2 years as a defensive back. Hip pain
and headaches were a normal way of life. He had to take 400mg of Ibuprofen before practice or games to feel “competition ready”. Unfortunately, during his second season with Elon he
suffered another concussion. In what was one of the hardest decisions in his life, he chose to
cut his football career short for the sake of his health. This also meant the dream for his future
had to change. Instead of playing in the NFL he decided he wanted to become a physical
therapist, BUT…

After graduating from Elon with his degree in exercise science, his health took another step
backwards. His headaches worsened and eventually became debilitating migraines occurring at least 3 times per week. They were so severe he had to call out of work every time he got a
migraine. They were impacting his family life and taking a toll on his romantic relationship. His
medical doctor prescribed him Imitrex, which improved the severity of the migraines, but made him so drowsy that he couldn’t continue working his night shift job. Due to this, he began working at Greater Life Chiropractic in 2017 as a Chiropractic Assistant. One of the perks of his new job was complimentary chiropractic care. After only a month of care his migraines completely went away. This experience led him to once again alter his career path, and he decided to become a chiropractor instead of a physical therapist.

Dr. Hambright received his doctorate from Sherman College of Chiropractic. With his personal background in collegiate sports, he has a natural passion for educating and serving athletes to not only recover from and prevent injuries, but to perform at their absolute highest level. He has advanced training in both pediatric and prenatal chiropractic care. He continues to attend seminars around the country striving to be the very best chiropractor he can be. Dr. Hambright is a husband and proud father of two boys. In his free time, he enjoys playground hopping with his family, and is a huge Anime fan. He will gladly discuss Marvel Universe characters with anyone who will listen. One of his greatest loves is watching football at all levels.

Dr. Hambright is a proud member of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity.

Dr. Hambright’s philanthropic service to the Charlotte community so far includes giving out free thanksgiving dinners, volunteering with back-to-school drives, and handing out toys to children while dressed as Santa Claus.
