Dr. Gilhousen's interest in chiropractic began after a childhood trauma left him with spinal pain and neurological dysfunction. After exhausting what modern medicine and physical therapy had to offer, chiropractic made the difference in getting him well again.
"Chiropractic literally changed my life. Helping others to achieve a higher quality of life is my mission and confirms my choice to practice chiropractic."
Dr. Gilhousen graduated with honors from Palmer Chiropractic College, one of the preeminent chiropractic colleges in the world. He has achieved advanced training in areas of sports and rehabilitation (certified chiropractic sports physician), extremity adjusting technique and applied nutrition (certified nutritional counselor).
"Education and continued learning has always been very important to me. Educating my patients about their specific condition and providing knowledge and direction so as to best help yourself has been a key component to my success in practice."
