My name is David C. Gray and I have been practicing Chiropractic in Missoula for 35 years. Missoula is my hometown, I attended local elementary schools and high schools and the University of Montana. I obtained my Bachelors and Chiropractic degree at Logan College in St Louis MO in 1974. I was the seventh chiropractor in Missoula when I joined my father in practice in October 1974, we practiced together for 22 wonderful years until dad’s retirement in 1996. Son Corey joined me in practice in 2000, and together we strive to bring excellence in chiropractic to Missoula at Health Options Clinic on South Russell Street.
My life path has included service in the US Navy nuclear submarine service; I was on Polar Patrol when Neil Armstrong landed on the moon! I met and married Rita in New York City while in the Navy. Together we have three wonderful children and three grandchildren, all but daughter Laura live in Missoula! Rita is a busy Real Estate person at Lambros but still keeps her hand in the family business.
I have been and remain active in the Missoula Community, I am a 35 year member of the Missoula Lions Club, a Boy Scout Leader and serve on local and State level committees serving Scouting’s needs. I have taken a strong role in Leadership Training of youth and adult leaders for 20 years.
I work with many leaders in the health community to try to ‘Bridge the Gap’ between medicine, chiropractic and complimentary care as well as write and lecture on ethics and professional boundaries.
My practice philosophy is simple, “to treat the public as I would like to be treated, make good ethical decisions and sound health recommendations, perform my skills to the best of my ability and be thankful for the opportunity to practice here in my hometown!”
I look forward to meeting you and will do my best to help you better manage your spinal health concerns. I will bring 35 years experience tempered by new and emerging treatment opportunities and research validated approaches to my recommendations and treatment methods!
Should you wish to talk about Lions Club, Scouting, Elk Hunting, submarines we can do that as well.
I am looking forward to the next decade of active practice, let’s work together to try to resolve your spinal concerns!
