Dr. Megan

Dr. Megan Ayala

Dr. Megan learned about the power of chiropractic care when her father, who had been living with chronic pain for 20 years following a serious accident, received life-changing care from a chiropractor after numerous other therapies, injections, and medications had failed him. Dr. Megan became inspired to bring hope to others just like her chiropractor had done for her father.

Relocating from her native Philadelphia, Dr. Megan attended Sherman College of Chiropractic in Spartanburg, SC. in Spartanburg, SC. She graduated as valedictorian of her class in 2020, where she invested over 200 hours of additional certifications outside of the classroom learning about the Gonstead technique and extremity care.

Dr. Megan is also a Certified Functional Medicine practitioner who utilizes a holistic approach to health and wellness. Together with Dr. Zach, she opened Upstate Clinic of Chiropractic in 2021 with the goal of helping patients live their best lives naturally.

Dr. Zach

Dr. Zachary Ayala

Dr. Zach’s interest in chiropractic was initially sparked by the remarkable story of Harvey Lillard, a deaf individual whose hearing was restored through a chiropractic adjustment. With personal connections to hearing loss through a sibling and a father immersed in hearing loss research, Dr. Zach’s curiosity was sparked regarding the potential benefits of chiropractic care in this domain. Although he had previously experienced chiropractic treatment for sports-related discomfort, his new understanding of the body’s innate ability to heal prompted a shift in perspective, motivating him to embark on a chiropractic career.

Hailing from Gainesville, Florida, Dr. Zach relocated to Spartanburg, SC, to pursue his education at Sherman College of Chiropractic in addition dedicating over 200 hours to learning the Gonstead Technique. Upon graduating in 2020, he delved into further certifications extending his expertise to include the Webster Technique for expectant mothers and Trigenics® Neuromuscular Reeducation for knee and shoulder ailments. Dr. Zach is deeply committed to serving the Piedmont community alongside his wife, Dr. Megan, with a shared passion for enhancing the well-being of individuals through chiropractic care.
