Chiropractor Bend, Dr. Dan Bourque

Meet Dr. Daniel Bourque

An Early Injury Led to Later Problems

When he was about 12, Dr. Dan experienced a serious trauma. A deep dive into a friend’s pool led to a hard hit to the head. He and his parents thought he would recover. Ten years later, he was in college and taking a ride on his mountain bike. A small bump in the road caused his lower back to go haywire and Dr. Dan was unable to stand up straight. In pain, he sought out his uncle, who was a medical radiologist. Though he received many referrals to specialists, nothing seemed to help.

Finally, Dr. Dan decided to see a chiropractor. It was there that he discovered his new injury was the result of the untreated problem from his childhood. In just a few visits, he felt like a new man. It set him on a course that would transform his life. First, he moved to the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California, leaving his home state of New Hampshire.

Moving Forward in Life

There, he painted houses and enjoyed working with his hands. This seasonal job, however, wasn’t fulfilling his true potential. “I wanted to incorporate my head, hands and heart into my work.” After his brother experienced a severe brain injury, it made Dr. Dan rethink what he was doing. He knew the time was right to make a change.

Dr. Dan’s education includes earning a Bachelor of Science degree and a Doctor of Chiropractic. He attended Western States Chiropractic College in Portland, Oregon. Upon graduating, he was cum laude and in the top ten of the class.

Chiropractic is a heart-based service profession.”


Staying Active and Healthy

When it was time to practice, Dr. Dan knew that Bend was the perfect place to be. He enjoys recreational opportunities in the area, including mountain biking, skiing, swimming, hiking and camping. Additionally, he likes to fly fish for trout or steelhead and play the guitar.

Dr. Dan and his wife, Karima, have two daughters, Kyra and Anneli. The entire family is under regular chiropractic care. Kyra and Anneli were adjusted within minutes of their birth and have never had colic, ear infections and other common problems. Any sniffles they get are gone quickly, which Dr. Dan attributes to their weekly adjustments.
