Dr. Matt Locke was born in Champaign, Illinois and grew up in Greensboro, NC where he played high school football at Page High School. Dr. Matt attended Appalachian State University where he played varsity football and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Health Promotion and Exercise Science. Following his baccalaureate degree, he completed a Masters Degree in Health Administration from the University of South Carolina. He began a rehabilitative company for a long-term care corporation in Columbia, SC before founding his own business, Carolina Fitness Testing, which used hydrostatic weighing to develop training and nutritional programs for clients based on their body composition. Dr. Matt has always been fascinated with the complexity and extensive capabilities of the human body. It was this fascination led him to his career in chiropractic medicine.
From his early college years to the present, Dr. Matt was himself a chiropractic patient, but it was during this time that he believed he could do more for his clients than exercise and diet alone. Dr. Matt attended Sherman College of Chiropractic in Spartanburg, South Carolina, graduating in 2015. He learned the philosophy, science, and art of chiropractic while never losing sight of his roots in exercise and sports. Dr. Matt has worked with collegiate athletes, competitive power lifters, competitive bodybuilding and physique athletes, and the everyday person looking to live a healthier life. Dr. Matt believes that chiropractic care, exercise, and diet are the essentials for everyone from the professional athlete on the field to the everyday person in the stands.
Outside the office, Dr. Matt still enjoys being physically active and spending time with his wife Pam, and two dogs, Rascal and Zuri.
