A very active kid in high school, Dr. Steve received a full ride scholarship to play college football in Ohio. Dr. Steve’s passion for a healthy lifestyle drove him to pursue a degree in Exercise Physiology at Chico State. An auto accident caused Dr. Steve to find a chiropractor to help with low back pain. This experience led him to finish Chico State with a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Physiology and his Masters Degree in Physical Education with an emphasis in Exercise Physiology, this knowledge allowed him to go to chiropractic school. After graduating from Palmer College of Chiropractic, Dr. Steve moved to Tennessee with his wife. The draw of family brought them back to Chico and Dr. Steve began working at Joyce Family Chiropractic. The skills he learned from Dr. Joyce were put to use in order to open his own practice, North Valley Chiropractic, in 2013. His mission is “to help anyone who is committed to working towards a health spine, lifestyle, and attitude. I promise to give one hundred percent of my abilities and education to my patients in order to increase the health of their spine and the individual as a whole.

Unlike conventional medicine, which focuses on attempting to treat disease once it occurs, North Valley Chiropractic emphasizes improving your health in an effort to reduce the risk of pain and illness in the first place. Most people would rather be healthy and avoid illness, if they could. This is one of the main reasons for the big surge in the popularity of our chiropractic center.

For some, North Valley Chiropractic will take them back to a place that is cozy and familiar, offering a rediscovery of health and wellness that had been previously known but long lost. For others, the journey may offer a new center, one never before experienced.

People are recognizing the benefit of seeking an alternative to traditional medicine; one that will help them achieve and maintain optimal health. Please take the time to meet the doctor, team, and our wellness network dedicated to helping you achieve your wellness objectives. As a patient at North Valley Chiropractic we will personally tailor a wellness program specifically targeted to your wellness needs using the least invasive yet highly-effective techniques and services.



Dr. Steve prefers a hands on approach when adjusting his patients. He also uses adjusting tools, a decompression table, a STIM machine, and ultrasound when a manual approach is just not enough to get a patient feeling better than when they walked in. After adjusting, Dr. Steve will often go over at-home stretches, exercises, and lifestyle changes that patients can easily incorporate into their daily lives.


What to Expect:

Upon entering our office, our receptionist will welcome you as a member of our family. The paperwork that we request you to complete provides us with a health history and important information regarding your condition.

The initial visit is designed for Dr. Steve to learn more about you, discuss your condition, and health-related goals. Dr. Steve will then perform a complete chiropractic evaluation examining the musculoskeletal and neurological systems. 

Dr. Steve prefers to take x-rays in order to gather more information about your specific case. To conclude the initial evaluation, Dr. Steve will discuss x-ray results, treatment plans, and could potentially perform the first treatment. 

Once Dr. Steve has had a chance to look at your x-rays in depth, he will be able to go over a Report of Findings. This is when he will be able to answer any questions you have including:

          “How can you help me?”
          “How often do I need to come in?”
          “What will my treatment cost?”
