Dr. Michael Nguyen was born and raised in the greater Portland metropolitan area. He received his doctorate of chiropractic at University of Western States Chiropractic College in Portland, Oregon.
In addition, he has a bachelor of science in Exercise Sports and Physiology from Oregon State University. Dr. Nguyen enjoys learning as much as he does teaching others what he has learned throughout the years. There is no greater reward than providing care and helping his patients understand what is the cause of their pain.
Dr. Nguyen chose a career in Chiropractic after personally experiencing the benefit chiropractic care had for him. He was involved in a motor vehicle collision that resulted in debilitating low back pain, making simple daily task extremely difficult. After just a few chiropractic treatments, he was able to perform daily activities with progressively less pain; such as putting on his shoe, sitting through class lectures, playing sports. He is able to identify with the difficulties you face.
Outside of the clinic, Dr. Nguyen is an adventure seeker and loves to explore all of what Oregon has to offer. He has a strong passion for food and fitness. In order for him to indulge in great food, he balances it out by staying active through rock climbing, golfing, basketball, weight lifting, snowboarding, swimming, and hiking. He also loves to travel, and has been all over the US, parts of central America and SE Asia.
