Meet Dr. Thomas Young
In his junior year at Western Washington University, Dr. Young met a friend during spring break to go late-night scuba diving for fresh crab. On the return trip, Dr. Young was riding home in a small pick-up truck when his side was stuck by a car going full speed through an intersection. His neck and skull were fractured, his low back was severely injured, and his left arm had such injuries that amputation was seriously considered after infection had set in.
It was a result of this accident, spending weeks in the hospital, and the subsequent rehabilitation that caused Dr. Young to change course and pursue chiropractic medicine. Later, looking back on the poor hospital nutrition, he added nutritional therapy as he progressed through his medical studies. Dr. Young can relate to accident and injury victims and help them with musculoskeletal rehabilitation, as well as prescribe nutritional therapies where they are appropriate to promote maximum healing and recovery.

Patients Love What We Do!
Dr. Young is AMAZING! I can darn near crawl into his office with a thrown out back then with some treatment and manipulation walk out in comfort. I really like the fact he takes his time to explain in detail what the problems are that I am facing and give me the correct recommendations for solving my tweeks and pulled muscles. Highly Recommended
I am a true testament to the care under Dr. Young. I’ve been going to this facility for about 3 years. The treatment plans have made a huge Improvement in my life. The gut cleanse body detox and essential oils have also made a big impact on my life and my health. I’m truly grateful for not only getting good care but getting educated on the body and the mind. I really appreciate the people at this office.
