Dr. Brittni Melnychuk began her chiropractic journey when she was 6 months old, suffering from chronic ear infections that were not treated successfully with antibiotics. After her first chiropractic treatment she no longer had ear infection issues and her parents continued to take her to a chiropractor for the rest of her life. She never sustained any major injuries throughout her life during soccer, volleyball or weight lifting and she owes this all to chiropractic. It allowed her to move properly and keep her body functioning at its greatest potential.
Dr. Melnychuk attended the University of Oregon in her hometown, Eugene, OR, where she earned her Bachelor of Science in human physiology. She worked as a teaching assistant in the anatomy lab helping other students learn anatomy on human cadavers.
