Dr. Doug Loehrer grew up in Lodi, California and graduated from Lodi High School in 1990. He went on to complete his chiropractic college prerequisite courses at San Joaquin Delta College in Stockton, CA. He received his Doctorate degree from Palmer College of Chiropractic West in San Jose, CA in 1998. He was asked to be one of the few to represent the school on a trip to Brazil during the expansion of Chiropractic world-wide during that time. While in Brazil he saw patients in hospitals, as well as remote jungles clinics for 3 weeks, at times seeing 200 patients a day. He has been in practice in Citrus Heights, CA since June 1999 and built and moved into his current state of the art chiropractic center in 2002.
Dr. Loehrer first experienced the benefits of Chiropractic care when in high school he injured his shoulder and neck in a skiing accident. His father was a prominent medical doctor so he was treated by traditional medicine with no results and finally after many weeks of having extreme pain and not being able to use his arm his friend took him to a local doctor of chiropractic. After a few weeks of conservative care the pain was gone and he was back in action. This experience left a lasting impression and inspired Dr. Loehrer to become a doctor of chiropractic himself. Now he helps others with their health like his father did.
Through this proven conservative chiropractic method, Dr. Loehrer has successfully treated thousands of patients over the past decade. Many who have been diagnosed with arthritis, low back pain, headaches, chronic pain, carpel tunnel, allergies, acute injuries, neck pain and TMJ (jaw problems).
An avid spokesman for the chiropractic profession, Dr. Doug has given hundreds of lectures to the public and his patients about the philosophy of chiropractic and it’s all natural approach to allowing the body to heal itself by removing nerve interference caused by spinal trauma, stress, posture and joint dysfunction. Dr. Doug is living his vision to educate the public about the science and miracles of chiropractic care.
“The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease”.
With this in mind, Dr. Loehrer is determined to fulfill his purpose to help as many people as possible to obtain and maintain an optimum level of health and wellbeing by balancing the human body, normalize bodily function, and strengthening vital organs through the drugless holistic and all natural chiropractic approach.
