Seeking Associate Doctor of Chiropractic to join a small sport-focused practice in the Oakland hills. Hours are flexible, and could be part or full time. The practice is primarily “cash” with a few insurance policies and Veterans grandfathered in. The studio space requires you to wear a few hats in return for flexibility, work-life balance, and the opportunity to use your full scope of practice, all while providing great care for your patients and making a good living where you can enjoy life in the Bay Area.

The following is required:
DC License in California (current, no prior violations) or soon to receive this if a new graduate
Evidence informed approach, with appreciation for clinical experience and patient preference
Comfortable and competent adjusting the spine and extremities
Comfortable using a mix of techniques as needed for different patient preferences/needs/goals: Diversified, Drop Table, SOT, and activator (Drop, SOT & Activator as tools, not necessarily the protocols)
Strong knowledge of rehabilitative exercise/strengthening programs, values home-care as part of a treatment plan.
Ability to accurately perform orthopedic testing and comprehensive exams to diagnose complaints, and create comprehensive care programs to address patient concerns & goals.
Ability to order appropriate imaging & bloodwork as needed
Passion for sports & athletics, desire to keep patients moving during their recovery (modify activities vs. simply rest)
Comfortable using EHR/EMR and patient scheduling tools in office

The following are not required but make you a stronger candidate, as these are all utilized in our office. If you have not taken these courses, interest/willingness to learn is a plus:
IASTM (FAKTR, Smart Tools approach)
Active Release Technique
Rocktape (or other kinesio tape) and/or Biomechanical (Dynamic Tape)
CCSP completed, in progress, or interest in starting/completing if new grad
CCEP coursework completed (certification not required)
Blood Flow Restriction Training certification/experience
Knowledge of herbs, diet and nutrition strategies to support patient care from a systemic and functional perspective
Webster certification
Mulligan lower & upper quarter courses
McKenzie A & B courses
V02 max and Resting Metabolic Rate testing (testing equipment in office)
Position start is flexible, preferably by the fall. New grads are welcome to apply, in addition to seasoned DC’s.

Schedule would likely be shift focused (morning or afternoon), with ~5 in-office, billable patient-care hours per day and work-at-home time as required to support/plan for your patient load (totaling 20-30 hrs in-person hours per week). Alternative option for longer, fewer days in the office per week is also available and open to discussion. One half day (or more, pending your preference) Saturday and/or Sunday availability for patient care would make you a stronger candidate.

Additional outreach opportunities available via Metabolic testing (Resting & VO2max) at local gyms, available outside of the office with strong additional income potential.

Compensation will be fair and competitive for experience level, likely to range from ~$65,000 – $90,000 per year for full time status, dependent on number of hours worked and your credentials.  Additional income potential from supportive care products and metabolic testing available. Benefits package can be designed pending on your wants/needs.

We are looking for a long term team member and request a minimum of a 2 year commitment, following 90 day trial period. Practice expansion is likely in the near future, continuing to focus on in-person chiropractic care, functional medicine and performance.
