At Intouch Chiropractic, Our Chiropractors Are the Best of the Best
Dr. Young has received extensive training in radiographic positioning and analysis, as well as MRI reading. Twice a year, he attends the National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association (NUCCA) Conference for ongoing training. Despite years of success as a chiropractor, he never allows himself to become complacent, revisiting both NUCCA and non-NUCCA techniques. He continually refines his adjusting procedures to maintain his expert mastery of the field. During these events, he and his colleague Dr. Tapia train from top to bottom in all things NUCCA.
Dr. Young took it to another level when he enrolled in a 3-year upper cervical diplomate program through the International Chiropractic Association. He attended monthly, in-person training in Chicago with a small group of dedicated colleagues from across the country. The program consisted of 300 classroom hours plus multiple exams. This was a challenging but worthwhile endeavor. With his extensive knowledge, he is able to diagnose MRI upper cervical findings that are at times missed by radiologists.
Many of our patients have tried multiple treatments and even surgery before they find Dr. Young. They are surprised to see how effective these gentle, non-invasive, natural treatments can be. It is Dr. Young’s great pleasure to help free his patients from pain and help them get back to enjoying an active lifestyle.
