Dr. Lance W. Hightower is the oldest of four sons and early in his years, was raised in the rural countryside of Eastern Oklahoma near Braggs, Oklahoma (he still has fond memories of his great grandmother’s outhouse!). Dr. H’s father retired as a Oklahoma State Parks Manager, allowing him and his brothers to live in some of Oklahoma’s beautiful state parks while growing up with his brothers.
Dr. H feels extremely blessed being married to his wife, Sue, for 22 years. She was a Mechanical Engineer who became an incredible home-educator to their two children, RaeLee and Sterling, over the past 17 years–( RaeLee will be attending college (Fall 2014) on a volleyball and theater scholarship, with his son, Sterling, aspiring to become a professional cyclist and/or study Engineering like his mother.
Dr. Hightower has been a man of many unique endeavors and achievements throughout his life. At age 13, he was an Oklahoma Horse Shoe Pitching Champion. At age 16, he contracted his own business through the State of Oklahoma Parks Department. At age 17, he was an Oklahoma State Track Champion, and was selected to the Oklahoma All-Star Marching Band. He graduated from Watonga High School in 1984, and in 1990, attained his undergraduate college degrees in Biology & Chemistry from Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford, Oklahoma.

He has also had the privilege in delivering over a million chiropractic adjustments to fellow Oklahoman’s in need, and has studied the lost art of “old-school chiropractic” that has been long forgotten.
When Dr. Hightower is out of his office, he loves to spend time with his family watching his daughter play volleyball, and his son race in cycling events. He enjoys cooking, gardening, and traveling with his wife, having a great Latte with his kids at Foolish Things Coffee House, rebuilding his ’77 Dodge Power Wagon Truck, running in 5K’s, camping, and hunting in the fall.
