Dr. Cole Schanilec grew up in Hickory, North Carolina in the foothills of the blue ridge mountains. He spent a majority of his youth on a field, court, or training room preparing for and competing in football, wrestling, and rugby. Dr. Schanilec’s athletic endeavors brought him to the University of North Carolina at Wilmington where his passion for anatomy, health, and science lead to research on musculoskeletal conditions that were published, and presented to the American Conference of Sports Medicine.
While training for an international rugby match at Life University, Dr. Schanilec experienced a trauma to his low back and received his first ever chiropractic adjustment. He was astounded by the relief and speed of recovery that chiropractic care had afforded him and vowed to learn more when he returned from his travels. While at Life university as a chiropractic student, Dr. Schanilec met his lovely wife and fellow chiropractor Sarah. They have a home in St. Petersburg and love taking their dogs, Maggie and Dixie, on long beach walks and exploring their new city.
I have been a rehab therapist for four years. I fell in love with rehab therapy after seeing how helpful my family members, who had been in the military, recovered mentally and physically with the therapy. When I am not working, I enjoy hiking, dancing, and music. I am a DJ and cello player. I often go for seven mile hikes with my two Great Danes. I like all types of dance, from hip hop/urban, to jazz, ballet and merengue/salsa
