DC / CHIROPRACTOR
Dr. Maryann Luxeder was born and raised in Akron, Ohio, and moved to Clinton, North Carolina from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in the spring of 2007. Dr. Luxeder has been the clinic director of the Clinton – Graybar Chiropractic office since it opened in 2008. A career in the medical field was always a dream of hers. Being accepted to a Physical Therapy Assisting program was just the beginning. However, due to complications of an auto accident, the field of chiropractic was suggested to her as a source of relief and healing. Her new career journey had her returned to the classroom this time at Kent State University taking night classes while still working 40 hours a week. Dr. Luxeder, obtained the required courses needed to become admitted to Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa.
Palmer College is where the entire profession of Chiropractic began and so to return to her passions birth place was the only place for her to go. On June 17, 2005, she graduated with her Doctor of Chiropractic degree. While attending Palmer she was on the Presidents List and an ambassador of the president’s office to guide new students as they began their chiropractic journey. While in school, she had acquired enough credits to finish her education early however she chose to remain on campus and work in a nearby chiropractic office to gain even more experience taking care of patients. By doing so she was offered the unique opportunity to participate in the Clinic Abroad program. This program provided her with chiropractic care experience of travel and providing care to the wonderful people in the most impoverished areas of India. This ten day trip changed her life by showing her just how important chiropractic is to the health and wellbeing of all those around the world.
Since moving to Clinton in 2007 Dr. Luxeder has experienced the warm and open arms of the wonderful
people in the community. “Clinton and Sampson County has taught me the wonder of an extended
family”. “Even though mine is miles away, this wonderful community feels like home”. Outside of her work in the clinic, Dr. Luxeder also volunteers in her church as one of three youth group teachers. Her passion to help and coach others is deeply rooted in a belief that if I “Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.” By teaching the foundation of health and wellbeing, I can empower others to in turn take care of themselves, not just in the short term but also in a way that they can become the best version of themselves. Life is short so
why spend time not being the best.
