Dr. Conway, or Dr. Dan as many of his patients call him, has worked as a chiropractor for over 20 years. Originally from Michigan, Dr. Dan grew up immersed in the world of sports including baseball, basketball and tennis. After graduating from high school, he enlisted in the United States Air Force and served for four years. Dr. Dan’s athletic and military pursuits prompted his curiosity and interest in optimizing the body's performance, which led him to enroll at Northwestern Health Science University where he earned his doctorate in chiropractic. He has practiced since 1997 and purchased Uptown Natural Care Center in 2004.
Dr. Dan has completed seven marathons and enjoys treating endurance athletes, runners, cyclists and swimmers and strives to help every level of athlete perform better. He also treats patients suffering from chronic headaches, planter fasciitis as well as chronic postural and ergonomic issues. Uptown Natural Care Center is a family-based practice where he and his staff help patients of all ages achieve optimal health.
“I met Dr. Conway in 1997 when I was pregnant with my first child. He has treated me and all five of my children over the years. I had terrible sciatica after my 4th child was born. I went 2-3 times a week for treatment. I know that without Dr. Conway I would not be walking. He has adjusted all of my girls as infants and over the years as needed. I live 45-50 minutes away, but feel the drive is worth it for such excellent care.”
