Dr. Todd Thistle, DC, CCSP
I am a board-certified chiropractor with a primary post-graduate focus on Sport Performance, Injury Diagnosis/Rehabilitation, Injury Prevention and Functional Movement Training.
Most importantly, I am the father of 4 young boys and the husband to Superwoman.
This site was born of my insatiable desire to help fathers be disciplined in their health, the stewardship of their children and their role as a husband. There are far too many weak and undisciplined fathers in this world and I think we can change that.
Let's do this together,
- Dr. Thistle
More about me:
I enjoy acrobatic parasailing, mowing my lawn at a high rate of speed and not speaking for long stretches of time, sometimes weeks. In late 2001, I ran the Yangtze River on a homemade balsa wood raft , subsisting solely on rain water and the endangered Chinese paddlefish . I also write the occasional piece of fiction.
I maintain a private, multi-disciplinary practice in Portland, Oregon where my greatest joy is convincing patients to stop doing sit-ups and to eat more healthy fats.

My faith and my family sustain me but the ocean is close to my heart, also. I love avocados and my wife's schnitzel (that's a food, not a body part) and I believe the movie Braveheart is a cinematic masterpiece. I also believe the band Journey to be one of the greatest of all time and if you like Jeep Wranglers, then we can be friends.
