Phillip McCary, DC, a Chiropractor with Laurelhurst Chiropractic

Get to know Chiropractor Dr. Phillip McCary, who serves patients in Portland, Oregon.

An award-winning, nationally renowned chiropractor, Dr. McCary works alongside his wife, Dr. Danielle McCary, at Laurelhurst Chiropractic. He treats each patient as an individual, naturally, to reduce pain and optimize health by increasing function and decreasing stress on the body.

A unique Portland, Oregon chiropractic clinic, Laurelhurst Chiropractic provides acupuncture & neuromuscular therapy for best chiropractic treatment outcomes. Consisting of a team with 30+ years of experience, issues such as back pain, neck pain, sciatica, scoliosis, car accident related injuries, headaches, and shoulder pain are treated. Likewise, full-body chiropractic adjustments and chiropractic neck adjustments are offered.

Long before he ever thought of becoming Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. McCary was a chiropractic patient. His first adjustment was before he can remember. His father had a severe lower back injury that made it impossible for him to work on the family farm. He had sought the advice of many doctors with no answers until being referred to the local small town Chiropractor. Dr. McCary was only a few months old at the time and had been constipated for about one week. His father was telling the chiropractor about this at one of his visits and the doc said, “Let me take a look at him.” She performed a few gentle adjustments and the little family headed out. 

By the time they made it home, his Osh-Kosh overalls were overflowing, the flood gates were open! Dr. McCary continued to be a chiropractic patient all the way through university, competing as a sprinter and 400m hurdler for the University of Washington. 

Thereafter, he attended the University of Western States where he met his future wife, and graduated with his Doctor of Chiropractic degree in 2009. They took over Laurelhurst Chiropractic in 2014, but the clinic was founded in 1996. 

Recognized by multiple leading organizations, Dr. McCary is a member of the Oregon Chiropractic Association, the American Chiropractic Association (ACA), the American Academy of Pain Medicine, the ACA Council for Diagnostic Imaging, the ACA Council for Forensic Sciences, the ACA Council for Neurology, and the ACA Council for Occupational Health.

Chiropractic is a form of alternative medicine that mainly deals with the diagnosis and treatment of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine. A chiropractor uses spinal adjustments, manipulation, and other techniques to manage patients’ health concerns, including neck pain, back pain, headaches, vertigo and a long list of other ailments and conditions. They aim to improve patients’ functionality and quality of life by properly aligning the body’s musculoskeletal structure and enabling the body to heal itself naturally, without the use of medication or surgery. 

Based on evidence of superior training, experience, continuing education and commitment to excellence, Dr. McCary was named America’s Best Chiropractors in 2020 by the National Consumer Advisory Board.

An avid athlete, he competed as a sprinter and 400m hurdler for the University of Washington. He feels like regular adjustments were a huge part of keeping him healthy and allowing him to compete against athletes that were much more physically talented.
