Dr. Brent Manley, DC
My background provided me with the opportunity of learning and expanding my appreciation of different beliefs and cultures. I was born and raised in northern California and spent the other half of my childhood living in Kenya. When I was 14, and playing rugby with friends, I injured my ribs and that was my first experience as a chiropractic patient. I felt so much relief, following my treatment, just being able to breathe better again without pain.
Returning to the US at 17, I finished high school and started college, working towards a degree in architecture. While I enjoyed architecture, I realized that I needed to be doing something more fulfilling. Something that would allow me to work with my hands and help people at the same time.
In my 20’s, I was able to spend some time observing my grandfather working in his chiropractic office. From just a few sessions, I knew that I had found what I was looking for. I received my undergraduate degree in Biology from Portland State University and my doctorate in chiropractic from Life West Chiropractic College. I have spent the past 25 years living in the Northwest and I love being outdoors, hiking, camping and photography.
Over the years that I have spent in practice, I have combined a few different techniques to provide the best adjustment. The most common techniques I use are Gonstead, Receptor-Tonus (Nimmo) and Diversified. Having had experience working in the construction trades in the past I have a unique perspective as to the physical challenges experienced.
As a chiropractor, I am dedicated to working with patients to help them improve their personal vitality by reducing pain and increasing their function so that they can live life to the fullest.
