Meet Your Doctor

Meet Your Doctor

Hello, my name is Dr. Heath Schipp. I was born in Clarksville, Indiana, and moved to Paducah with my family during high school. I attended St. Mary where I enjoyed playing basketball and running track and field.

I was one of those kids who always knew I’d be a doctor someday. I ‘shadowed’ all the local doctors…any I could find who would let me until I spent the day watching a chiropractor. I loved the fact that he could help people without prescribing medication and I knew that was what I wanted to do.

After graduating from Murray State University with a double honors degree in Chemistry and Biology, I attended chiropractic school at Logan College in St. Louis, Missouri. After graduating from Logan College, I returned home to Paducah and within six months opened my practice in Lone Oak.

I met my wife, Angela, at Murray State University and we were married during my second year of residency. We have two daughters, Bailey and Lauren.

Active Care Chiropractic has been open since 2003 and has grown to treat thousands of patients. My goal is to take care of my patients from birth through advanced age. My youngest patients are only a few hours old. My oldest patient to date was 97 years old. I have adjusted people in all age brackets and with various medical problems. Chiropractors are not just back and neck doctors. We address the whole body. Many patients are surprised to find out how many different problems we can treat.
