Dr. Christian Cohen

“I started seeing a chiropractor when I was a teenager because of the pain right between my shoulder blades. When the pain went away, I was so impressed that I decided to go to chiropractic school. Sitting in school, spending hours pouring over books caused my back pain to return – adjustments alone did get me out of pain. That’s when I was introduced to The Pettibon System™. This system of spinal rehabilitation coupled with adjustments made total sense to me and worked! It was a perfect fit for my results-driven personality.”

After graduating from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 2001, I practiced in my home town just south of Chicago. After almost 2 years, I was invited by Dr. Pettibon to come to Gig Harbor to run a practice for him. It was an opportunity of a lifetime. In 2003, my wife, Jen, and I trekked across the country and set up shop in Gig Harbor. All four of our children are northwest born.

As a life long learner, studying the brain and its affect on how the body responds to treatment fascinates me. I have taken over 400 hours of Functional Neurology education in the past couple of years and am Pierce county’s only Board Certified Functional Neurologist. What this means for you is that we can determine what is going on, where to start, the best method to treat you and set a plan to get you back to the things you love to do.

We pride ourselves on keeping our practice a true place of hope and healing and invite you to come in and become part of our healthy family.

Diplomate of the American Chiropractic Neurology Board
