Springfield Chiropractor Dr. Hiro Matsuno
My Chiropractic Results Were Amazing
“My first introduction to chiropractic occurred when I was 18 years old. I was already a chronic low back pain sufferer at that age. Throughout my school years, I was involved in various sport activities, especially track and field. Not being able to compete or practice at a higher level due to the daily pain I was living with was really frustrating for me. My first year in college, I knew I needed to do something. Pain medication was not only a temporary solution, but was probably hurting my organs. Massage felt good, but the relief did not last as desired. Then I discovered chiropractic. After committing myself to a corrective treatment approach, the results were amazing. Throughout the treatment process, I noticed a transformation that allowed me to realize what life without daily pain was like. At that time, I decided to become a chiropractor with the goal of helping others in my situation.”
His Chiropractic Journey
After completing his undergraduate study, Dr. Matsuno was accepted to Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa, the most renowned chiropractic college in the world. During his four years at Palmer, courses included biochemistry, a major emphasis on anatomy and human physiology, X-ray, diagnosis, chiropractic adjusting techniques and patient care in the Palmer College Public Clinic. During his clinical internship, he was one of a dozen students honored to participate in the college’s clinic abroad program, where he traveled to India and treated thousands of local residents.
While there, he also learned about the natural healing customs of India. This service was well accepted by the country and honored by the president of India. After graduating in 1998 with a Bachelor of Science Degree and Doctor of Chiropractic Degree, he further pursued a post graduate upper cervical Atlas Orthogonal program, and became one of only 200 board certified Atlas Orthogonal chiropractors world wide. Dr. Matsuno decided to reside in Oregon to establish his private practice in 1999.
