Headache Relief Center


About Dr. Chris Duncan

As a Chiropractor I work on all types of musculoskeletal injuries, from car accident and work injuries to sports medicine and family wellness. One of the areas of particular focus in my practice though is pregnancy care.

I graduated from Utah State Valley College with an Associates Degree in Biology in 2002. I then attended Western States Chiropractic College from 2003-2007 where I graduated with a Doctorate of Chiropractic (DC). My two primary areas of interest and focus are sports performance care and also pregnancy care. I am also a licensed massage therapist graduating from Utah College of Massage Therapy. I focus that practice on athletes and am also certified in prenatal massage.

I have always had a special place in my clinic for pregnant patients. In my youth I had an experience in which I was able to watch women work, struggle and suffer through a great trial, but I was not allowed to assist them. I struggled with the feeling of being unable to help. I was reminded of my youth as I watched my wife go through the difficulties of pregnancy. Women facing this noble challenge of bringing a child into the world receive very little in the way of relief. Chiropractic and massage provide me unique tools to help these women in a way that others can't.

My youth has affected the way that I practice in many ways. In high school I was a runner, a soccer player, and was a 1A state track champion while a sophomore at Dugway High School here in Utah. Assisting my fellow teammates with injuries was one of my first experiences of treating multiple patients. This got me into the sports medicine that I do.

I also was a musician and actor in my teenage years, and have friends who have continued in that path. The rigors of those professions are similar to that of sports with the 8-10 hours a day of practice to fine tune the body to precise performance. As a patient of mine, professional singer, songwriter, and vocal coach Eric Hanson teaches his students the power behind proper alignment in vocal performance, and knows the value of chiropractic to precision performance.

My life has been more than just health care. I grew up all over because my father was in the military, so I'm an army brat. I spent most of my youth in Germany, and graduated from Heidelberg High School. I served a mission for the LDS Church in England, and I have always loved the beauty of Europe.
