 Dr. Dean Hegarty D.C.

While assisting my realtor parents with fixing up homes as a teen, I suffered a low back injury from pulling up carpet. This resulted in debilitating pain, numbness, sciatica, and loss of urine control at the young age of 14.  My mother took me to a medical doctor and I was told that if I didn't improve within one month that I would require surgery.


My mom then took me to see her friends chiropractor. Though my first two weeks of adjustments were painful, I started to feel my sciatica and numbness decrease and to my surprise I regained control of my bladder!  I soon returned to being nearly pain free.  This personal experience then motivated me to help others by becoming a chiropractor myself.

I first completed my undergraduate biology degree at Arizona State University. I then continued my chiropractic training and graduated from Los Angeles College of Chiropractic in 1988.

With a strong love of science and wellness, it is no surprise that my focus has been on the biomechanical causes of back pain, and treating the underlying factors

contributing to the pain and not the symptom of pain itself.  Similar to vehicle maintenance, you would not simply cover the red light on your dashboard, you would want to address the actual cause of the red light.


“The approach I take to getting my patients well, is by addressing the underlying cause of the problem.”

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my wife, children, friends, family and my dog. If I'm not in the office, you’re likely to find me at your local CrossFit or walking around Lake Hollingsworth. I enjoy traveling, exercising, mostly anything outdoors and consider myself a “foodie.”

I intend to improve the health and well-being of my community so every person can enjoy a fruitful life free from sickness, disease and pain. I do this by educating each patient and working on there spine to increase function, improving the quality of a patient’s life”
