As a high school track and field athlete, Dr. Pulliam injured his back while pole-vaulting. After a poor response with conventional medical treatment, he went to a chiropractor and received immediate relief. Dr. Pulliam had such a positive experience with the natural healing process chiropractic care offered, that it became an easy career choice for him. After graduating from Cleveland Chiropractic College in Kansas City, Missouri in 1982, Dr. Pulliam did a one year internship in Kansas City, before opening his first clinic in Slidell in January 1984. He added a clinic in Mandeville in 1995 and has provided patient care in both clinics since.
Dr. Pulliam is a workout and golf enthusiast who works out six days a week. He is a fan of high school basketball, the Saints, Pelicans, and LSU. He and his wife Greta have raised three children, Amanda, Sarah , and Bryan, all who are still working or in school in Louisiana.
