Dr. Emil Lara

Chiropractor in Charlotte, NC

Dr. Emil Lara was born and raised in Jacksonville, FL, and loved that the weather was perfect for soccer, tennis and going to the beach year-round. Inspired by his grandfather (who was a doctor) and his father, Dr. Emil had a keen interest in science from a young age. He also struggled with chronic health issues growing up and knew the frustration that came with seemingly endless doctor visits and tests.

A friend introduced Dr. Emil to the world of chiropractic and he knew that’s what he wanted to pursue — a field in healthcare that takes a completely natural approach to treatment. He wanted to help people heal. After receiving his Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Florida, Dr. Emil went on to earn a Doctor of Chiropractic from the National University of Health Sciences in Illinois, where he graduated with honors.

Dr. Emil focuses on a holistic, whole-body approach to health and focuses on rehab and nutrition. He wishes everyone knew that chiropractic is a root-cause treatment approach that allows the body to heal.

When Dr. Emil is not in the office, he enjoys playing tennis, hiking and traveling. He loves to cook and claims he makes a mean stew—but saves all the baking for his wife, Jessica. Though a Jacksonville Jaguars fan, Dr. Emil is slowly learning to cheer for the Panthers.
