Our Team

Dr. Neil Mennell

Chiropractic Physician

From a young age, Dr. Neil knew he wanted to help people. Having worked in the health field and heading to be an Anesthesiologist, a twist of fate would change his life for the better...

“As a child I suffered from many ear infections, hearing issues, and chronic headaches. At 19 I was told that I needed neurosurgery, so I followed my doctors’ suggestion and went into surgery.

After the surgery I lost most of the motion in my neck and continued suffering from headaches, only now due to the damage done to my head and neck as a result of the surgery. Physical therapy restored some of my motion, but it was still greatly reduced, and my headaches continued.

Like many people, having grown up in mainstream Western medicine, I had very little knowledge of Chiropractic and had not thought about it helping me until several years later when I met a friend who suggested I see a Chiropractor. Figuring I had nothing to lose, I found a doctor in my area. I was astonished at the difference I experienced within just a few visits. I was having less headaches and I could move my neck more than I had been able to in several years. It was during that third visit that the light sparked on over my head and I was instantly driven to change my life path to help others through the power of Chiropractic.

I strive to reach out to the countless people like myself, especially children, who are struggling with issues such as ear infections, colic, ADD/ADHD, headaches, and countless other conditions that could have found relief through Chiropractic."

This passion has lead Dr. Neil to pursue additional training in pediatric chiropractic. He is certified in Webster Technique and is a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA). He is also trained in Torque Release Technique and is one of a small number of Chiropractors in the Portland metropolitan area to be trained in Koren Specific Technique (KST).

Growing up in England, Dr. Neil moved to the United States at the age of 18. He has lived in Oregon for the majority of the time, with his wonderful wife, Charissa, and their three boys. Outside of the office, Dr. Neil enjoys spending time with his family and is the co-captain of a paintball team.
