Dr. Brian Beard and Dr. Merissa Beard, D.C.

Chiropractors, Parker University

Dr. Merissa grew up in Victoria, BC, Canada where she obtained her BSc. Kinesiology, with Honours, from the University of Victoria. She learned about the power of chiropractic after having her horse adjusted by an equine chiropractor, leading her to seek care for her own health as well. Dr. Merissa attended Parker University in Dallas where she obtained her Doctorate of Chiropractic (and her husband, Dr. Brian!) in 2014.

After having her son, Xander, Dr. Merissa became aware of the gaping holes in education and maternal care during the Motherhood transition. This initiated a new passion for serving women during this time, and Dr. Merissa sought the latest information and techniques available to help moms. She is a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) and is certified in the Webster Technique for prenatal care. Her heart is for serving women and their children to create empowered, healthy families!

Dr. Brian is a native Arkansan, growing up a Morrilton Devil Dog! He was an avid athlete in his younger years, until he suffered a debilitating back injury at the age of 26. The injury changed his entire lifestyle. He could no longer play sports or lift weights. It wasn’t until Dr. Brian saw a chiropractor that he regained hope. He hobbled into Dr. York’s office in Morrilton, had his C1 adjusted, and was able to walk out. This healing was so profound that Dr. Brian enrolled at Parker University, where he graduated with his Doctorate of Chiropractic in 2012.

Upon graduation, Dr. Brian traveled to Naples, Florida and then to Charlotte, North Carolina, where he trained under three of the top doctors in the country. He brought their expertise, best practices, and techniques back to serve us here in Conway by opening a MaxLiving Health Center, which today is one of just three in the state of Arkansas.

In addition to living the chiropractic lifestyle, these doctors are passionate about fitness! The Beards also own CrossFit Conway, where they have been working out since 2014. You can often find them frequenting the 8:30am or 11:30am classes, or coaching on the weekends.

What Our Patients Are Saying ...

The doctors and staff are amazing! They’ve gotten me back on track after a workout injury that wasn’t going away. I look forward to each visit as we continue adjustments for full healing and mobility.

5 HUGE stars. Everyone here is extremely helpful. Dr Merissa has been amazing through my pregnancies and postpartum time. Their office has helped my entire family. Everyone from my almost 80 yr old mother, us, our children, and now our grandchildren. They have helped my migraines, my mother's arthritis pain, and my grandchild's nursing issues. Whatever you are dealing with don't do it alone! These people come alongside you and HELP! By far the most supportive place you could go.
