MMA Chiropractors is dedicated to providing you with a quality chiropractic physician. Our doctors have excellent references, and we screen for state board complaints and malpractice claims. MMA Chiropractors now serves the entire United States and continues to expand internationally.
MMA Chiropractors was established in Florida in 1989 by Michael McGurn, D.C. He is a second-generation chiropractor with thirteen chiropractors in his family.
Dr. McGurn was raised in Southern New Jersey and graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 1980. He has maintained successful practices in New Jersey and Florida since 1981. He founded Michael McGurn, D.C. & Associates (MMA) as he saw the need for a quality temporary and associate placement service for chiropractors in the U.S.
You can be sure that when you contract with MMA Chiropractors, you will receive a caring, dependable and competent chiropractic physician.
