Jennifer McHatti

Jennifer McHattie, D.C. was first introduced to chiropractic as a child. Her parents took her to a chiropractor out of a concern for spinal curvature and, at this very early age, she recognized that she was stronger and standing taller with treatment. She knew from this first encounter that she would one day be a chiropractor.

Dr. McHattie earned her doctorate degree from Southern California University of Health Sciences in 2007. She has a particular interest in injury care including sports injuries & auto accident recovery. Along with chiropractic, a specific rehab program, cold laser & Kinesio Taping are often integrated into her patient’s care so that they can get back to doing what they love as quickly as possible.

Dr. McHattie moved with her husband and two children to Portland in 2010 and quickly fell in love with the Northwest. Her favorites things to do are playing with her kids, Shea and Cora, at the many local parks, exploring the fantastic food scene, snowboarding, waterskiing, CrossFit, camping, and watching football – GO HAWKS !
