Steve Perry, Clinic Director

Dr. Steve graduated from Life Chiropractic College West in Hayward, CA in 2010 and was blessed to be able to care for thousands of patients from 2011-2018 at Family First Chiropractic in Reno/Sparks, NV.

He offers his patients a very gentle technique that does not twist or pop the neck. He also uses unique methods to identify misalignments in the spine and tailor-make a very specific chiropractic adjustment.

Patients enjoy this gentle and very effective style of chiropractic and need fewer neck adjustments than more common forms of chiropractic. Dr. Steve is excited to bring this technique and technology to the Boise area.

Dr. Steve also studied wellness with Dr. James Chestnut which incorporates education as the primary intervention to overcome the United States’ current health issues. Patients who attend Dr. Steve’s classes are more confident in their health choices and are able to live at a higher level of health and happiness, experiencing reduced exposure to the pandemics of disease many families suffer with today.

He lives with his wife Natalie and their four children and enjoys swimming, being outdoors and playing games.
