Dr. Pat grew up in Aurora, Colorado and moved to Canton, Ohio in 1990. He lived there until recently when he moved to Castle Rock to help his wife pursue her professional career.
Through High School and College Dr. Pat was a competitive athlete receiving numerous accolades for his performance in soccer, diving and pole vaulting. Throughout his athletic career, Dr. Pat had many season ending injuries. It was from these experiences that he learned about chiropractic and decided to become a chiropractor to help those individuals that experienced the same pain that he endured and give them hope.
In 2002, Dr. Pat began his chiropractic education at New York Chiropractic College. While attending, he was a member of the Dean's List and was selected to participate in an internship at the Veteran's Affairs Memorial Hospital in Buffalo, New York. While in Buffalo, Dr. Pat was a member of the medical staff for the Buffalo Gladiators, a semi-professional football team, the Buffalo Bandits, a professional Lacrosse team, and the National Tae Kwon Do Championships in Colorado Springs, CO. In March, 2005, Dr. Pat graduated from New York Chiropractic College.
On January 2, 2007, Dr. Pat established McBrearty Family & Sport Chiropractic. He has treated patients of all shapes and sizes varying from the weekend warrior to the professional athlete (NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, UFC, Track & Field, Triathlon). Using his knowledge of Chiropractic, Active Release Techniques®, Graston Technique®, Kinesiotaping®, rehabilitative stretches and strengthening exercises, and nutrition, he has been helping patients become well, one patient at a time.
Dr. Pat uses a multidisciplinary approach for caring for his patients. He works with other medical professionals (Primary Care Physicians, Orthopedists, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapist, Massotherapists) to provide the highest quality of care for his patients. Dr. Pat utilizes evidence based methods of care to provide his patients with the most effective treatment so that they are able to become well in the shortest period of time possible.
Dr. Pat is married to his beautiful wife, Stephanie, and they have three children, Patrick, Lennon and Theodorah (a.k.a. "Teddie!"). He will be the first to tell you what an exciting time this has been for his family with three little ones at home, especially with the recent move to Castle Rock!
Dr. Pat is still an avid soccer player and he has begun to pursue other areas of interest such as Triathlons, Tae Kwon Do and, most recently, CrossFit! Dr. Pat is proud to continue to run his thriving practice in Canton, OH remotely and looks forward to having the opportunity to be able to get to know and provide exceptional care to the Greater Castle Rock community!
