Who we are

Hi, welcome to Southwest Brain Performance Centers, where our purpose is to help you achieve your optimal neurological health.

Our company's founder, Dr. Michael Pendleton, has a unique backstory that inspired him to study chiropractic functional neurology and launch his own practice in 1993.

Dr. Pendleton's journey into chiropractic care was actually sparked by his mother's struggles with chronic back pain and recurrent migraines. After four treatments, her issues were resolved and she had told young Michael Pendleton, “You are going to be a chiropractor.” On the other hand, Dr. Pendleton's father had hoped that his son would follow in his footsteps and enter the realm of producing plastic goods.

Dr. Pendleton, however, had a different calling.

He started looking into the benefits of chiropractic care from a holistic standpoint. Dr. Pendleton made the decision to enter the chiropractic field as a career and became a Doctor of Chiropractic in 1991.

Originally known as "Complete Healthcare," Dr. Pendleton's own practice was founded in 1993. It didn't take long for the clinic to establish a reputation for offering patients in the community individualized, high-quality care.

In 2014, the practice adopted the name Southwest Brain Performance Centers, which reflects our dedication to finding and addressing all of the hidden pieces in a patient's neurological health puzzle.

Dr. Pendleton and his staff at Southwest Brain Performance Centers are dedicated to providing each patient individualized care.
