Meet the Doctors
Dr. Daniel Moynihan, D.C.
Doctor of Chiropractic
As a child, Dr. Moynihan frequently suffered with ear infections and colds. "I used to keep a bottle of pink Amoxicillin in the fridge to sip on throughout the day. I thought that was normal. I had gotten used to being sick."
This pattern continued throughout his youth: wait until you're sick, then treat the symptoms with medication.
"I had no hope that this would ever change. I figured I was unlucky and would have to deal with sickness the rest of my life."
As a result of his health issues, Dr. Moynihan became intrigued by the human body. "I loved learning about how the body works and how we adapt to our environment. Health and longevity became my passion."
He pursued a pre-medical track in college and received his Bachelors of Science degree in Molecular and Cellular Biology from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
"I was first introduced to corrective chiropractic care during this time. My mom had been experiencing migraine headaches for years and took ibuprofen daily! Her co-worker referred her to Planet Chiropractic for a nervous system exam. I accompanied her on the initial visit, knowing nothing about chiropractic. I didn't realize it at the time, but this was the day that changed my entire life!"
"On that first visit, I learned about the nervous system as well as the body's innate ability to self-regulate and heal. My history of sickness started to make sense as we questioned WHY I always became ill and determined the causes of the problem. No doctor had every asked these questions before!"
"Each time I was adjusted, I noticed changes in my breathing and athletic ability. That was the first year in my life I didn't get sick! My Mom's headaches went away as well!"
After experiencing such profound changes in his personal health, Dr. Moynihan decided to become a chiropractor. He graduated Cum Laude with his Doctorate of Chiropractic degree from Life University in 2012. With over 12 years of study in biology, physiology, anatomy, genetics, nutrition and exercise, Dr. Moynihan possesses a rare ability to lead his patients to the vibrant life they deserve.
"My passion is to help people live at their full potential! I want to give them their life back!"
Dr. Moynihan returned to Planet Chiropractic to train with Dr. Charles Majors and help transform the Chicagoland community. Since it opened in 1999, Planet Chiropractic has changed the lives of thousands of patients. After five years of practicing together, Dr. Moynihan took over the practice in 2017. It is his mission to continue the legacy of restoring patients' lives and vitality through the 5 essentials of MaxLiving.
