Animal Chiropractor, Dr. Dave Powell

Hello, I am Dr David Powell.

I am a licensed Chiropractor practicing in Washington state. In addition to treating humans I am a Certified Animal Chiropractor (CAC) as well as a member of the International Veterinary Chiropractic Association (IVCA). 

My interest in Animal Chiropractic began when my 15 year old dog started having problems walking and standing.  As a human Chiropractor I treated her using my best guess approach based on my understanding of adjusting and spinal anatomy.  Even using my best guess had a notable effect on my dog so I decided that I wanted to pursue training and certification in the field of animal chiropractic.  I completed my post doctorate training in Animal Chiropractic at Options for Animals College of Animal Chiropractic in Wellsville Kansas.  To be certified one must be either a Doctor of Chiropractic or a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine and requires an additional 210 hours of graduate level study beyond the completion of a Doctorate degree.    

I love working with animals.  Although I see everything from llamas and goats to dogs, cats and horses, I have to admit I am partial to treating dogs.  It is very gratifying to watch an animal transition from stiff and painful to a relaxed and happy creature and I consider myself very fortunate to be able to provide care for the creatures we share our live with.

I look forward to meeting you all.

David J. Powell, DC, CAC, IVCA
