Tory Naugle, DC, CCSP®
Chiropractor Dr. Tory Naugle holds an undergraduate degree in biology from Linfield College. He graduated with honors in 2004 from Western States Chiropractic College and began his residency in Roseburg, Oregon, immediately after he obtained his doctorate. Dr. Naugle opened Better Life Chiropractic and Massage, his own practice, in 2006.
Dr. Naugle believes in gentle, diversified care incorporating heat, massage, and sufficient one-on-one time with a chiropractic provider. An initial visit starts with a consultation where Dr. Naugle completes a case history and inquiries about your present condition and spinal health. As a next step, he'll examine you and evaluate your issues or problems. Examinations routinely include a series of physical tests in addition to specific chiropractic evaluation of your posture and spinal movements.
After an analysis, Dr. Naugle will explain your condition and put together a plan of appropriate action for you. He will discuss this plan with you, factoring in your activity levels, stress, and health habits. During the course of your program, Dr. Naugle will track your individual response and can likely recommend changes to your work environment, lifestyle, exercise, and dietary patterns.
If it's necessary, diagnostic tests or x-rays may be recommended to get further information regarding the functioning of your spine and details of your condition. If necessary, you may be referred by Dr. Naugle to a specialist for further treatment or evaluation. It is in the best interest of patients of doctors of chiropractic practices to be referred to other health care providers when appropriate.
Joan Young-Cheney, DC
Growing up in the desert, her heart was won over by everything Oregon has to offer and knew she would end up here. Roseburg was always a place she felt the most connected to; due to the people, the country lifestyle, and the breathtaking scenery.
Joan graduated from Los Angeles College of Chiropractic (LACC) in December of 1985. She also attended 4 years of post-graduate school at LACC to pursue a more extensive knowledge and understanding of neurology and rehabilitation. She loves teaching people about their bodies, how they are wired to maintain neutral joint posture, how to recognize and correct the imbalances caused by injuries, overuse, and lack of tone in the postural muscles, and implementing simple stretches and exercises into their daily lives.
In her free time, Joan enjoys tennis, painting, hiking, camping, reading, crochet, family, and hanging with her happy-go-lucky pooch, Domino!
