Parham Chiropractic in Cameron is a family and animal clinic that provides chiropractic wellness care at an affordable price. Dr. Scott Parham began his family practice journey after he graduated from Cleveland Chiropractic College in Kansas City in 2002. After practicing in both North and South Carolina for seven years, his family relocated back to their home state Oklahoma. Here he took family practice to a new level by joining with his sister-n-law and her husband at Clark Family Chiropractic in Ft. Smith, where he continued his work with family wellness.

In 2014, Dr. Parham completed the Animal Chiropractic Program in Dallas, TX through Parker Chiropractic College and became board certified by the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association. He was then able to offer chiropractic care to animals through farm calls and at special events. This business grew and therefore provided an opportunity for he and his wife, Mary to open a new clinic in Oklahoma to provide local care to residents of Leflore County. Dr. Parham uses the Activator technique of Chiropractic. This technique utilizes an instrument called an Activator to perform the adjustment which is highly researched, safe and effective.


Dr. Parham is a graduate of Heavener High School and attend Carl Albert State College. He and his wife Mary have two adult sons who live in Tulsa.

They reside in Poteau with a zoo of rescued animals.
