Meet The Doctor

Nikolai A. Young, DC, LCP

Nikolai A. Young, DC, LCP (Hon.)

Dr. Young is a Portland native and second generation doctor. Growing up with the influence of his father who is a medical radiologist, he always knew he wanted to help others but was not sure of how he would best fit into the healthcare field. Dr. Young explored the possibility of becoming either a medical doctor or a naturopath. Dr. Young's life was changed at a conference when he was a sophomore in high school. At this conference, a chiropractor explained the philosophic scope of chiropractic and Dr. Young never looked back. Every future step he took was focused on becoming a Doctor of Chiropractic.

Dr. Young is a graduate of Life University in Atlanta, Georgia with a Bachelor of Science in exercise science and a graduate of Life Chiropractic College West in Hayward, California. During his time in chiropractic school, Dr. Young sub-specialized in the Blair technique which addresses vertebral subluxations from the first cervical vertebra (C1) to the fifth cervical vertebra (C5) and the Gonstead technique which addresses subluxations throughout the entire spinal column as well as the pelvis.

Dr. Young also is a member of the Delta Sigma Chi Professional Fraternity, the oldest chiropractic fraternity, of which most technique developers were members. Within this organization, Dr. Young sat on the chapter level executive board for multiple terms. During the last term of chiropractic school, Dr. Young completed his preceptorship at the largest pediatric/prenatal chiropractic office in Sonoma County, California. 

Dr. Young also completed his Legion of Chiropractic Philosophers diplomate status (LCP) in 2022 and is in the process of completing the three year Diplomate in Chiropractic Philosophical Standards (DPhCS). Dr. Young is excited to be home in Portland to share the gift of chiropractic with the people of Portland and Northwest Oregon.
