Since 2009, family wellness has been our focus. We are passionate about working with family members of every age, from newborns, babies and children, to moms, dads and grandparents.
Our practice outlook is somewhat different than the average chiropractic office. There are plenty of good sports doctors out there, many disc specialists and an abundance of extremity experts. We need to come to a better understanding about health care and what many consider unimportant. We are here to bridge the gap and to say that pregnancy and the birth process is an incredibly important part of life that affects every one of us. Our lifelong health depends on it.
Children are our future, and we're here to make sure that they have the best start in life possible. Dr. Chad's love for his two daughters, Chloe and Ella, overflows into the lives of the children in his practice. As he does for his own kids, he'll do everything in his power to give your children a better life.
Since 2009, Dr. Chad Johnson has delivered high-quality chiropractic care to practice members wishing to eliminate their pain, optimize their wellness potential and live a better life. At Better Life Family Chiropractic we welcome every member of the community, from babies and children to parents and grandparents. We emphasize a personalized approach to health care, with a detailed focus on prenatal, pediatric, and family chiropractic care. Dr. Chad began seeing a Doctor of Chiropractic in his mid-20s for the painful aftereffects of injuries he had sustained during years of athletic activities. He already had an established career in fine arts, but by the time he turned 30, he began to analyze what he wanted to accomplish in life. One day, in the middle of receiving an adjustment by his chiropractor, the doctor uttered these words, which to this day remain a vivid memory: "Chad, why don't you become a chiropractor?" He immediately knew that his life was about to change, and returned to college to complete his premed studies. He then enrolled at the University of Western States Chiropractic College in Portland, Oregon. He graduated in 2009, ready to begin a new chapter in his life. In his initial months of practice, Dr. Chad specialized in disc injuries and headaches. That all changed, however, when he became a father for the first time. He and his wife Randi planned to have the birth of their first child in the comfort of their own home. Even though Randi had been adjusted in a conventional manner throughout her pregnancy, her labor was long, painful and grueling. After her uterine contractions had come to a halt after 30 hours, Randi was rushed to the hospital where she finally gave birth to a little girl. "That experience was so hard on my wife and baby; I determined that I'd never let that happen again!" -Dr. Chad Shortly after this traumatic event, Dr. Chad dedicated himself to extensive study in prenatal and pediatric chiropractic. He is now a highly advanced Webster Technique practitioner, allowing him the privilege of optimizing pregnancies and managing positive birth outcomes for the moms-to-be in his practice. He's also an EPIC practitioner with extensive experience in the treatment of ADHD and autism and a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA).
