Dr. Patrick K. Silva is a Board Certified and Licensed Doctor of Chiropractic with a focus on Sports Rehab, practicing in the beautiful US Pacific Northwest.

Building on his preceptorship with the Seahawks’ chiropractor (Dr. Jim Kurtz) in 2016, Dr. Patrick has designed his practice around the numerous soft tissue techniques, movement systems, and rehabilitative paradigms that modern sports science has to offer.

Dr. Patrick is also a Certified Office Ergonomics Evaluator (COEE), a Certified Professional Trainer (CPT), and a regular blog contributor to the National Federation of Personal Trainers (NFPT).
