Meet Dr. Bobby Lawson

Getting on the Chiropractic Path

Dr Lawson photoDr. Lawson was always interested in the health field and liked educating people. His parents were both teachers, so he considered that route, but felt more called to help people optimize their health.

He thought of becoming a physical therapist and realized that wasn’t for him. As he was a kinesiology major at Penn State University, Dr. Lawson looked at related careers, and chiropractic was one of those. “I observed a few chiropractors in the State College area and realized that chiropractic was what I wanted to do.”

Joining the Sheaffer Family Chiropractic Team

In 2018, Dr. Lawson earned his bachelor’s from Penn State and interned at the practice the summer before starting chiropractic school. “During the internship, I got a sneak peek of what chiropractic actually was and the philosophy of it.”

Dr. Lawson went to Sherman College of Chiropractic, obtaining his Doctor of Chiropractic in 2022. In addition to this doctorate, he has certification in the Thompson Technique.

Hailing from York, Dr. Lawson played sports such as hockey, track and field, and football growing up. He also went to Central York High School, the same district that Sheaffer Family Chiropractic is in. “It’s special to take care of patients I went to high school with, and those I know around the community.”

Outside the Practice

When he’s not caring for patients’ spines, Dr. Lawson likes spending time with family and his fiance Megan. He also enjoys staying active and fit by taking walks and going to the gym across the street from the practice. When he wants to wind down, Dr. Lawson likes watching TV or Netflix.
