A Midwesterner for much of his life, Dr. McClanahan did his undergraduate (2002) and graduate (Exercise Physiology - 2004) studies at the University of Missouri in Columbia, MO, moved a bit northeast to Des Moines University's College of Osteopathic Medicine for medical school (2010), and then further north and east to Grand Rapids, MI for postgraduate training (2014). He completed a 4-year internship and residency in a degree program called Integrated Family Medicine (FM) / Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine (NMM) and was dually board certified in the Fall of 2014 in both FM and NMM, the latter being the academic term for the osteopathic manual medicine that DO's are known for. In September 2014 he and his wife, Farron, moved to Chattanooga, TN to join the Center for Integrative Medicine, which turned out to be a good decision both from what the city has to offer and the excellent way his skills and interests fit in with those at the Center.

This content was provided by Dr. McClanahan "Hoping to stay close to his osteopathic roots, Dr. McClanahan firmly believes in treating the "whole person" (body, mind, and especially spirit), that our bodies have been gifted with an inherent ability to self-regulate and heal, and further that anatomy matters as it concerns physiology, both in addressing disease and in finding and maintaining an individual's health. He subsequently has a good understanding of and interest in musculoskeletal medicine, in addition to traditional primary care medicine, and has had a special focus on the treatment of pain in its many manifestations. This perspective has lead to his particular interest in the brain-body connections implicit in all kinds of chronic (and even acute!) pain and disease, in addition to an injection treatment called prolotherapy. The former concerns an alternative paradigm and treatment approach to a number of often frustrating chronic conditions – fibromyalgia, IBS, TMJ, migraines, IC, fatigue, etc. The latter is a targeted, regenerative injection therapy that activates the body's immune system (the opposite of steroids) to heal chronic ligamentous and tendinous injuries and/or joint laxity, which often fly under the radar of common diagnostic methods and may be the root of many recurrent injuries and chronic pain."
