Stillwater Chiropractor, Dr. Matt Allen

For years I suffered with headaches. It was a constant, nagging pain every day of my life for over 10 years.

I knew I wanted to be a doctor at a very young age. You see, I was in and out of the hospital 27 times before I was 10 years old. Not a fun way for a kid to spend their early days, but for me I learned a lot about what health really was and what it really wasn’t. It wasn’t until I was in college that I realized Chiropractic was the best way for me to fulfill my goal to help others with their health challenges… Naturally!

My Chiropractic Journey

I attended Life University of Chiropractic in Marietta, Georgia. The coursework was very comprehensive with studies focusing on neuroanatomy, advanced biochemistry, clinical nutrition, physical rehabilitation, neurology and human physiology, diagnosis, and chiropractic adjusting techniques.

You should know that I don’t heal anyone of anything. What I do is perform a specific cranial spinal adjustment to remove nerve interference, and the body responds by healing and regulating itself. It’s as simple as that!

As for my headaches…they have been gone for more than 10 years. However, I continue to get adjusted, because with a healthy diet, exercise and regular Chiropractic care, I have a wonderful Quality of Life and it continues getting better. I hope to help you get healthy and stay healthy for the rest of your life and fulfill YOUR purpose in life!


Dr. Matt and his lovely wife, Kember have two children: Baden, who was born in February 2008 and Ryder, who was born in May 2010.

Thanks for visiting our site. I look forward to meeting you in person and learning how we may be of service to you. Give our office a call, or email me using the link below and let’s arrange a time to explore your options.

I grew up in Edmond, OK and graduated from Edmond Memorial High School in 2010. After graduation, I moved to Stillwater to attend Oklahoma State University. My path into NeuroStructural Care started here in Stillwater at Sunrise Health Institute.

During my sophomore year at OSU I was given the opportunity to apply for a Chiropractic Assistant job at Sunrise. At the time I knew nothing about Chiropractic or NeuroStructural Care, but I was in school working towards a health degree and knew that I wanted to help people improve their lives in a simple and natural way. I started working at Sunrise in November of 2011, and I quickly began to see how simple but powerful an adjustment could be. For the first time I saw the impact that the spine and nervous system had on the health and function of the entire body. The specific adjustment removes any nerve interference and allows the body to self-regulate, heal, and repair. I decided the adjustment was the way I could help people in a simple and natural way. It was this realization that steered my education towards NeuroStructural Care.

During the five years I worked as one of Dr. Matt’s Chiropractic Assistants I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Health Education and a minor in Entrepreneurship, obtained my Koren Specific Technique certification, and finished my neuromuscular training. This combination of education and certifications allowed me to start adjusting. In May of 2016 I began my internship back at Sunrise Health Institute. I am so blessed to have the opportunity to learn from Dr. Matt and work side by side everyday with some of the most caring and loving people I know.

I got married in October of 2015 to my wonderful husband BJ Helton. We currently live in Perkins with our two cats and two dogs. We love to go to the lake, go camping, or watch movies in our free time.

I was raised in Perkins, Oklahoma, which is about 10 miles south of Stillwater. I graduated from Perkins-Tryon High School in 2009, and in May 2013 I graduated from Oklahoma State University with a degree in Business Management and minors in Finance and Marketing. I am the Office Manager at Sunrise Health Institute. I have been working here since May 2009. I love my job so much and am so blessed to get to be working with such great people. I enjoy getting to see our patients each day and knowing that our office is making a difference in their lives!

Before I started working at Sunrise Health Institute, I was a patient for about 9 months. I started coming to the office my senior year of high school because I had been having constant back pain for a few years and my shoulders were noticeably uneven. Also, I had suffered from severe allergy and asthma problems my whole life. Since coming to Dr. Matt and receiving regular adjustments, my posture has improved greatly, and I rarely have problems with allergies or asthma.

My overall health and well-being are much better! I cannot express how thankful I am for this!
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with family and friends, reading, watching my favorite TV shows and movies, spending time outside, taking care of my pets, and sports. I also really enjoy sharing with others about how they can bring a natural approach to healthcare into their homes with doTERRA Essential Oils and the huge difference those can make in everyone’s life!

I’m a Chiropractic Assistant and the Technical Supervisor at Sunrise Health Institute. I was happily married to my late husband, Rod McAbee for 36 years, and I have two wonderful sons, Kevin and Daniel. I have two grandchildren, Matthew and Cassandra. I have lived in Stillwater for the majority of my life.

I trained in the Martial Arts for 3 years and currently hold a brown belt in Chinese Kenpo, green belt in Aikido and purple belt in TKD. Martial Arts training is what first brought me to Dr. Matt as a patient. I had severe neck and lower back pain. The adjustments I received made it possible to continue being active. Also, the regular adjustments have rid me of life-long migraines. I suffered from allergies a large part of my life. Since testing and clearing in the BioScan SRT, my allergies have left, and I now have a more balanced immune system.

I was a patient for about 4 months before I became an employee. I absolutely LOVE my job and feel privileged to work with the Staff and patients. I believe in living life to its fullest. Sunrise Health Institute has enriched my quality of life and enabled me to continue doing the things I love.

Logan LaNou, Chiropractic Assistant

I was raised in Newalla, OK. I graduated from Christian Heritage Academy in Del City in 2015, and I am currently a student at Oklahoma State University. I am pursuing a degree in Health Education and Promotion. Once I finish at OSU, I plan on continuing my education in pursuit of becoming a Chiropractor.

I started working at Sunrise Health Institute in January of 2017, and I am a Chiropractic Assistant. I think the staff is awesome, and I like being able to get to know our patients over time. I really enjoy seeing the difference that receiving regular chiropractic care can make in the lives of our patients and staff. Before I started working here and getting adjusted, I was experiencing chronic headaches and other occasional aches and pains. Since receiving regular adjustments, those symptoms have lessened immensely.

Outside of work and school I like spending time with my family, my girlfriend, Erica, and my friends. I really enjoy photography, watching and playing sports, camping, kayaking, training my dog, Boone, and going on adventures!
