Dr. Grace's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Grace "Thomas Grace received a Doctor of Chiropractic degree from the University of Western States (UWS)(2015), a BA in Sociology from Gordon College in Wenham, MA (1993) and a BS in Geology from State University of New York and the University of Wyoming (2001). During his Chiropractic training, Thomas' love for treating underserved communities led him to clinic rotations with Volunteers of America and a UWS mission trip with Clinica de Mariposa to Costa Rica in 2015, where he treated hundreds of local patients in the San Jose area. Upon his return to the States, he joined Dr. Popovicks at Orofino Wellness Center in Idaho for a final clinic rotation. Thomas is passionate about non operative spinal decompression and restoring function with the least invasive means possible. Dr. Grace believes that many patients with severe pain and decreased function could avoid surgery and epidural injections with a non-invasive spinal decompression program. Thomas' interest in cranial work began twenty years ago by listening to Dr. James Jealous DO lecture on CSF and cranial sacral therapies and has evolved through study and many hours of practice. He has recently completed his certification in SOT (sacral occipital therapy) and enjoys integrating this work into the treatment of his patients at Natural Pain Solutions. As a clinician, Dr. Grace has a strong interest in functional evaluation and individualized treatment plans. His treatment approach uses a combination of Diversified Adjusting, Activator technique, IASTM, muscle energy techniques, nutritional and cranial sacral therapies. Thomas' health care philosophy was shaped by a childhood of simplicity. He was raised without electricity in a log cabin in upstate New York with a work ethic formed by daily wood chores and homework done by candlelight. As an adult, Thomas travelled to Colorado, where he became enamored with mountaineering and eventually became a rock and mountain climbing guide. Ten years of this work took Thomas to every corner of the country as well as up the Nose of El Capitan. He has held teaching certifications in both New York and California, which allowed him to bring his love for learning into the classroom. In more recent years, family became Thomas' primary focus and that has provided him with unprecedented fulfillment. Dr. Grace has many hours of postgraduate education in orthopedics, neurology, biomechanics, cranial - sacral, physical medicine and therapeutics and clinical nutrition; as well as diagnostic imaging MRI and CT scan. Dr. Grace is a bike commuter and an avid runner who enjoys surfing the Oregon Coast, skiing Mt. Hood and skateboarding with his two boys."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Grace "I treat patients who are wishing to avoid spinal surgery. Conditions that are often associated with the need for our therapy are: herniated discs, degenerated spines, degenerated discs, sciatica, failed back syndrome, posterior facet arthritis and chronic spinal pain. I also have studied cranial therapies including SOT, and treat TMJ as well as headaches and neck issues using this modality. My philosophy is to use the least force to achieve the most beneficial outcome for my patients."

Dr. Grace is AWESOME! At my first visit, I hobbled into the office bent over with two walking sticks. Dr. Grace taught me home therapies that I combined with his in-office therapies. And now, I am walking normally and pain-free all due to Dr. Grace. He has the rare characteristic of high IQ and EQ. Very knowledgeable and compassionate. I whole-heartedly recommend Dr. Grace to everyone.

Dr. Grace is professional and friendly. This was my first chiropractic appointment, so I was a bit nervous, but Dr. Grace immediately put me at ease - he was welcoming and very knowledgeable. Dr. Grace was attentive and empathetic, and I could tell from my visit that he is passionate about his practice. It was clear that Dr. Grace excels in chiropractics and I felt very confident in his abilities.
Dr. Grace is a very compassionate doctor, he wants to get you better! He has great bedside when speaking with his patients! He will go out of his way to treat you even if it means staying late or coming in really early! If you are a new patient Dr. Grace will walk you through the procedure step by step and answer any questions you might have about the process.

Dr. Grace has a great energy that is caring and empathetic as well as clinical at the same time. This was the only therapy that I found that keeps people out of back surgery, which I know can be unsuccessful.
