My name is Dr. Edward Mack Boren. I was born in Cateechee, South Carolina. I attended school in Central and graduated from Daniel High School in 1967. In June of 1968 I enlisted in the US Navy and served my country in the armed forces until 1972.
My first encounter with Chiropractic was as a patient of the late Dr. Ed Bolt (former Chiropractor in Easley). I had hurt my back while working in the stock room of a local manufacturer. While being treated by Dr. Bolt, he recommended Chiropractic to me as a profession. After a period of serious consideration, I became convinced Chiropractic health care was the path to follow. As a side note, I later found out that Dr. Bolt was responsible for Dr. Harold Thrasher (formerly of Pickens, SC) and Dr. Pat McCoy (formerly of Greenville, SC) both becoming Doctors of Chiropractic health care.
I enrolled in North Greenville College (Now North Greenville University) in 1972 and graduated from there in 1974. While attending North Greenville, I met my future wife, Candy Craig who later became Mrs. Candy Craig Boren. After North Greenville, I attended Logan Chiropractic College in St. Louis, Missouri. I transferred to Life Chiropractic College in Marietta, Georgia in 1975. I graduated with a Doctor of Chiropractic in December of 1978.
I opened my first practice in Cartersville, Georgia, in 1979. In the Fall of 1981 I returned home to practice in Pickens County, South Carolina. Our office is now located on Calhoun Memorial Highway in Easley. I have now been in Chiropractic Health care for over 3 decades.
My wife Candy and I are blessed to be the parents of two beautiful daughters: Suzanne Venable (who resides in Augusta, Georgia), and Rose Wilson, a resident of Easley.

This old truck is a real workhorse
Dr. Ed Boren says this 1970 Chevrolet pickup truck has “been used as a work truck” all its life, have over 300,000 miles on it and is still going strong. “I use it several times per week,” says Boren. The truck was bought new by Boren’s father-in-law, Ernie Craig. “He gave it to his daughter (Boren’s wife, Candy), but he made me pay $1,000 for it,” the Easley Chiropractor jokes.
