Dr. Laura A. Swingen began her profession as a chiropractor after graduating from the University of Oregon in 1986 and Western States Chiropractic College in 1990. She worked as an associate doctor in order to learn NUCCA technique and then came to Sunset Chiropractic Clinic in 1991. In her over 27 year career, she has literally served thousands of patients at her clinic and has been proud to help them meet their health care goals.
She has been involved in three chiropractic mission trips to Central America where chiropractic care was so enthusiastically received that hundreds of people would be lined up and waiting at the beginning of her treatment day. In 2010, she embarked on course work to earn a degree in Chiropractic Neurology and, after taking 475 classroom hours and passing a rigorous board examination, received her certification in 2012, becoming one of only a handful of Chiropractic Neurologists in the state of Oregon.
Dr. Swingen blends a warm compassion, persistence, a variety of chiropractic techniques, and a quarter-century of clinical skill and experience to attain optimum results for her patients. She is proud to be a doctor her community of patients can depend upon for excellent, same-day care. Her degree in chiropractic neurology has allowed her to assist her patients with even more precision and many of her colleagues throughout the state refer their more difficult cases to her for her expertise.
She is a member of the Oregon Chiropractic Association and is the president of its Functional Chiropractic Council. She is also a member of the International Chiropractic Association, the American Chiropractic Neurology Board, and the International Association of Functional Neurology and Rehabilitation. She has completed 400 hours of training in the treatment of concussion and mild traumatic brain injury.
Dr. Swingen has published research in the peer-reviewed literature as a result of her work in the field of neurological rehabilitation (Integrative Medicine: A Clinician's Journal, April/May 2017).
