Dr. Joan O’Connor graduated from Western States Chiropractic College in 1997. She maintained a private practice in Portland until 2004 when she decided to move back to the East Coast to be closer to family. She opened a practice in Bellows Falls, VT and enjoyed a successful family practice there until 2015 when the desire to return to the Pacific Northwest could no longer be ignored.
Dr. O’Connor loves being a chiropractor and specializes in SOT® Methods and SOT® craniopathy. She has a family-based practice in the West Slope neighborhood of Portland. In addition to her private practice, she works at the University of Western States as the clinical skills assessment (CSA) coordinator. Working with students and assessment offers a nice balance to providing patient care. In her free time, she enjoys yoga, hiking, cooking and has been working on her knitting skills.
