David Higginson, DC

Describe a treatment with you?

My goal is always to get my patient’s bodies functioning at their best so that they can perform their favorite activities without pain. A big part of what I do is listening. Once I’ve heard your story, I can use my knowledge of anatomy and chiropractic medicine to come up with an individualized treatment plan to best suit your individual needs. Chiropractic is much more than “cracking backs.” I have a strong rehabilitation aspect to my practice. I encourage my patients to actively participate in their healthcare, and I like to teach them how their bodies are meant to function. I have always been a believer that the body is made to move and I strive to teach my patients how to move their bodies in a functional way.

Favorite thing about your job?

I love seeing people realize and accept that they play the most important role in their healthcare.

Your ideal client?
Anyone who is willing to work through the process. I love working with athletes because they have a unique mentality. I have an extensive background in sports related injuries, both first-hand and clinically, so I definitely connect with the patients who have physical obstacles to overcome. 

Favorite quote?
 "Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not." - Dr. Seuss

Where have you lived?

I grew up in a small town in Northern BC Canada, where summer days were spent playing street hockey, golf, soccer and, swimming, and winters were spent between the ice rink and the mountain. A knee injury sidelined my aspirations of a hockey career, but it led me on a path of alternative medicine and preventative healthcare. After a two year stint in Southern California, I moved to Portland and enrolled in chiropractic college.

My kids and dog... DAILY

One thing you do every single day?

What’s your spirit animal?
