Dr. Dan has provided chiropractic and rehabilitative care at Northwood Health Center since graduating in 1994. After a football injury in high-school, Dr. Dan was told by his medical doctor that he would be fine in a couple of weeks. Six months later and still unable to stand more than 30 minutes at a time, chiropractic helped him recover and function in his life again. It was then that Dr. Dan knew chiropractic was his future.

In addition to graduating from Western States Chiropractic College with a doctorate in chiropractic (D.C.), Dr. Dan has education in sports medicine and has taken courses on Collision Reconstruction with Texas A&M University and Brain Traumatology. 

Dr. Dan is the current editor for the Oregon Chiropractic Association's news publication and has authored publications addressing automobile collision injuries, worker's compensation injuries, and articles on other areas of health care to better educate the public and other professions that assist in the health care arena.

Dr. Dan tries to teach and live a life of health for himself and his family. His drug-free philosophy in life is a perfect companion to the philosophy of chiropractic. When the body is allowed to heal itself as God intended, without the use of toxic drugs or invasive surgeries, the outcome will be much healthier and more effective in the long run.
