Lead Chiropractor
As a former professional football player with the Seattle Seahawks, Dr. Pollack is very familiar with back and joint pain. Searching for relief from his injuries he discovered chiropractic care. He quickly learned that chiropractic care was very effective and went beyond just treating aches and pains.

A native of Lake Oswego, Dr. Pollack graduated with Honors from the University of Southern California with a Bachelor of Science in Public Administration. Awarded the Scholar Athlete Award of Honor from the David K. Marks foundation he continued his athletic career as a player with the Seattle Seahawks. While playing professionally he was required to undergo chiropractic care as a part of the training regime. The experience was life changing. He found pain relief and a feeling of overall well-being that helped him both on and off the field. He decided on a new career and immediately attended Life Chiropractic College West in Hayward, California once he retired from professional football.

Dr. Pollack's former experience with aches and pains as a daily part of life makes him a caring and compassionate healer. His desire to help those in pain motivates him to continually educate himself on the latest techniques and technology that not only benefits those in pain, but also those who understand chiropractic as a holistic care modality for prevention of back and neck pain, and as a health enhancer. His goal is to help you live pain free with an active lifestyle using an individualized protocol of proven therapies.
