Meet Dr. Dave Oommen

Switching From PT to Chiropractic

Chiropractor Blaine, Dr. Dave OommenBorn in St. Paul and raised in the White Bear Lake area, Dr. Dave loves calling Minnesota home. He went to the University of Minnesota and earned a degree in Exercise Science with a Physical Therapy emphasis. While working in a physical therapy clinic, he was getting ready to apply to PT school and was introduced to chiropractic through a serious of amazing events.

In a sense, this was, for Dr. Dave the missing piece to helping people get better and stay better. “At the core of what chiropractic truly is, it can be both corrective and preventative in nature. Our healthcare system is built on a reactionary approach to health, so I’m supposed to wait until something happens to me, then I’m supposed to do something about it. But what if I didn’t want to wait for the “other foot to drop?” That, is where chiropractic made a life-changing stop at my door.

Now everyday, when I come into Elevated Health Center, its a privilege to be able to give families hope, hope that there are other options for their kids, hope that this cycle of sickness, does not need to continue. It’s truly an honor and blessing to be able to partner with parents as they strive to take theirs, and their family’s health to the next level.”

Developing a Wellness-based Approach

Since he began practicing, Dr. Dave’s approach to care has morphed from a pain-based model to overall wellness. He is passionate about helping clients of all ages, particularly children, experience better health through natural means. “With much of my family in the medical field, I was so used to medicine and seeing people who I love being dependent on it. Chiropractic represents a completely different approach.”

In addition to his doctorate, Dr. Dave participated in the Epic pediatrics program. He is also a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) and is certified in the Webster Technique. Currently, he’s working toward earning his Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician (CCSP®) credential.
