Meet Dr. Ashton Begg
Dr. Ashton Begg is a Licensed Chiropractor in Florida and a resident of Lee County since 1998. Originally from Florida, at the age of three Ashton’s family moved onto a sailboat and began sailing around the Caribbean for seven years. In 1998, the Begg family moved back to Florida and settled in Cape Coral.
Ashton is an alumni of Mariner High School in Cape Coral and attended Edison College (now Florida SouthWestern State College), Hodges University and Palmer College of Chiropractic to earn his Chiropractic degree. Dr. Begg completed his Clinical Internship Program at the Palmer Chiropractic Clinic in Port Orange. While completing his Chiropractic degree, Dr. Begg volunteered at Port Orange Drug Abuse Treatment and Rehab Center, helping those with drug addictions and HIV.
Prior to becoming a Chiropractor, Dr. Begg was a Personal Trainer where he focused on creating customized health and wellness plans to help his clients achieve their fitness goals. Dr. Begg also has formal training in Gymnastics and Martial Arts and attained a 1st Degree Black Belt. When Ashton isn’t in his office treating patients, you will likely find him on the water fishing and free-diving. A fun fact about Ashton – his record breath hold is 6 minutes!
Dr. Begg’s Chiropractic Story
“I was actually first introduced to Chiropractic when I was about 6 years old. My family was anchored off the island of Trinidad in the Caribbean, where I saw a chiropractor adjusting local islanders on his yacht. I noticed all the people lined up to see this doctor looked like they were in pain and pretty unhappy. Then, and this is what stuck with me all these years, after the islanders were adjusted they suddenly had smiles on their faces and a bit of a pep in their step. After seeing that, I knew I wanted to be just like that guy (the Chiropractor), where I could help people in pain with just my hands.”
Probably the most important member of the SOS Chiropractic team is the official office greeter, Sky. Sky is a 6-year-old, 10lb, Toy Australian Sheppard and she will make sure you have a smile on your face for the entirety of your visit.
Be sure to ask Dr. Begg the names of her favorite toys and she will happily go retrieve them for you.
At SOS Chiropractic, you’re never just a patient, you’re part of the family.
Dr. Begg and Sky hope to see you soon!
