Harold G. McCoy, DC, DACS, CCST, FICA, is a Chiropractor who was practicing in Kirkland, WA. He is a 1975 graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic . He was Treasurer of the Council on Chiropractic Practice, President, of the "International Spinal Health Institute", a now defunct company, and a board member of the World Chiropractic Alliance. He is notable because he was the FIRST DC to represent the United States at the Pan Am Games, held in Caracas, Venezuela, in 1983. 
His varied background includes strong experience in sports chiropractic,  including seven years of service as a consultant to the University of Washington Intercollegiate Athletic Department. During the 1984 Olympics, he was chiropractor to the U.S. Olympic Boxing Team. Dr. McCoy has also served as chiropractor for the Boston Marathon and the Women's Marathon Olympic Trials.
Around 2002, as a result of a life changing treatment he gave to a Russian shipping magnate,  he was invited to come to Vladivostok, in the Russian far east, and create a clinic at the City Hospital there. They brought other DC's and apparently taught Chiropractic techniques to the medical Manual therapists there.
