Seven Lakes Chiropractor Relocates, Adds Services


Insider Editor

After 10 years providing adjustments and medical care in Seven Lakes, Dr. Sharon Wright, of Wright Chiropractic Clinic, will begin seeing patients at a new location in Pinehurst this month.

It’s a move Wright has been contemplating and preparing for since early 2020. With the location change, she is introducing a renamed and integrated medical practice: Seven Lakes Medical Center. 

The rebranded practice featuring new medical providers and expanded services reflect her goal to deliver cutting-edge, conservative healthcare.

“We are now focusing on our integrated medical approach to bring our patients the best results and to get them back to living their lives without interruption or difficulty,” said Wright. 

The practice is owned by Charlotte-area medical doctor Chad Howard and will also employ a physical therapist. Howard will make monthly visits to the practice and will provide oversight and support.

Wright, a chiropractor for over 30 years, is excited to bring more comprehensive and advanced care to her patients. 

“It’s the wave of the future,” she said. “I’m glad we have surgery as an option, but if we can help somebody naturally heal and repair joints, that’s huge.”

Wright worked as a medical lab technician in a hospital for eight years before looking to make a career change. She met a husband-and-wife team who were building a chiropractic practice and introduced her to the profession. “I just thought it was exciting that somebody could come in feeling pain and could feel better without taking medication going out the door. I’ve been excited ever since,” she said. 

Wright attributes this life-long excitement about helping people with her practice’s evolution. “I’m always looking for something more to help patients. I’m always trying to solve problems, trying to figure out how I can help people knowing there has to be another way.”

Anyone experiencing pain, who has trouble doing the things they normally do can benefit from the treatments the new practice will provide, says Wright. The practice will focus on functional improvement rather than suppressing symptoms with opioids or other drugs. Providers at Seven Lakes Medical Center will work together to help patients achieve the goal of eliminating chronic pain. 

Seven Lakes Medical Center is now located at 30 Parker Lane in Pinehurst.
