As an athlete growing up, doctor Makin always had a passion for sports and staying in shape.
As a sophomore football player for American Fork High School he was the only one in his class to start on the varsity squad, then after receiving all-state honors his junior season Dallas was primed for a promising senior year. Approaching his senior year doctor Makin received numerous letters from major colleges throughout the nation (Like U of Michigan, U of Arizona, U of Colorado, U of Utah, BYU, Stanford, and many more), he was on top of the world, football was life and life was good.
However, in the opening pre-season game of his long-awaited senior season, doctor Makin blew his ACL while returning a kick-off. Dr. Makin went through the surgery and rehab process but missed his entire senior season, upon learning of this and his desire to serve a LDS mission colleges changed their tune from “full-ride scholarship” to “call us when you get back.”
This was a life changing experience! From then on doctor Makin had a new found passion to work with the human body to prevent and recover from unfortunate sports injuries.
Doctor Makin has dedicated his career to learning the latest techniques in helping athletes in a natural, surgery-free way, and referring to the proper professional when surgery is inevitable.
He takes pride in his passion of seeing each patient respond positively, and would love the opportunity to help you in your health goals.
