The occupational health portion of the practice serves many employers with DOT and pre-employment physicals, a full range of drug and alcohol testing, and random drug testing to facilitate compliance with the Drug-Free Workplace initiative of the Chamber of Commerce.

He earned a PhD from the University of Mississippi while enrolled at Life University, from which he graduated in 1995. He specializes in Cox Flexion Distraction/Disc Decompression technique.

riskDr. Hayden is an active member of the American Chiropractic Association. He serves as a member of the Media Team, through which he is a spokesman for the Association to television, radio, and printed media.
