I grew up on the east coast. I didn't know anything about chiropractic growing up. When I was in my late twenties, I got into a bad bike accident and a friend referred me to her chiropractor. I was amazed by how his patients were getting better, and how much I got better from his care. I decided to quit my software engineering job at the time and go to chiropractic school. That's when I went to Western States Chiropractic College in Portland, OR. I graduated from WSCC in 2001 and went back to Massachusetts. I practiced in Easthampton, MA for almost 16 years and then decided to move back to Portland, OR with my wife and daughter in 2017. I opened my new practice (120 Chiropractic) in early 2018.
Referral information is supplied solely by chiropractic providers themselves and is not checked or warranted by the Oregon Chiropractic Association (OCA). Chiropractic providers who register as an Oregon Chiropractic Association Member pay specified annual membership dues. They are put on the Chiropractic Referral List as part of their membership benefits. Any and all chiropractic members who request to be listed on the Referral List are listed and, as a general rule, no one is excluded.
THE OCA DOES NOT RECOMMEND OR ENDORSE ANY OF THE LISTED CHIROPRACTIC SERVICE PROVIDERS. The OCA is not a health care provider, and does not give medical advice or treatment. The OCA offers the Referral List as a resource for patients looking for a chiropractic provider. However, the OCA does not pre-screen or pre-evaluate the facilities or providers in any way before they are put on the list. Nor does the OCA pre-screen, pre-evaluate, or consider the Medicare/Medicaid status of these providers. You are responsible for interviewing and selecting a suitable provider. Therefore, you should contact providers directly for relevant information, such as information on insurance coverage or specific techniques and services.
The OCA does not verify the credentials or licensing of any of the chiropractors before they are listed. If you wish to obtain a provider license status, please go to the Oregon Board of Chiropractic Examiners website.
