MEET OUR CHIROPRACTOR

DR. CLARK

Chiropractor | Owner

Dr. Clark Pitcairn started his journey in chiropractic as a patient. At the age of 7, he received his first chiropractic adjustment. In turn he remained a patient due to the profound changes it made in his life. As a child, Dr. Clark had a chronic upper respiratory problem. His cough was so bad that it became a bit embarrassing for him in grade school. After starting chiropractic treatments, his cough began to lessen and eventually went away completely. Due to that care, he was able to run around and play sports with all the other kids without wheezing. His mother saw the benefit of having her kids under regular care so she made it a priority for all three of her children. As a result, today, Dr. Clark and his two sisters are all chiropractors.  Dr. Clark’s interests include hiking/backpacking, rock climbing, snowboarding and surfing. He currently lives in NE Portland with his beautiful wife Julia and four wonderful children Dylan, Brody, Micah and Tanner.
