Dr. Eric Vogelzang grew up in Grand Rapids, attended Grand Rapids Christian High School and earned his bachelor’s degree in Education from Calvin College in 2003. He moved to Seattle, Washington in 2004 to teach sixth grade at Bellevue Christian School where he taught for six years. During that time, he gained a love of teaching and helping his students reach their fullest potentials. He was active in the CrossFit community at the time, and like most, he injured his back. Receiving Chiropractic care proved so effective and life changing that he decided to pursue it as a career.
He attended University of Western States Chiropractic, and graduating in 2014, he began working as an associate with Bridge Chiropractic in Vancouver, Washington. After six months, he became Clinic Director of the Mill Plain office where he successfully managed and ran a thriving practice. He created detailed care plans for each patient’s individual needs, wants, and goals. Incorporating therapeutic exercise to correct muscle imbalance, postural problems, and effectively correcting subluxation earning Bridge “Chiropractic Office of the Year” for Clark County from 2015-2017.
Educating and helping patients fully understand the mechanics of how Chiropractic works was one of his favorite aspects of working with them; showing each patient that the Power that created the body, heals the body; that structural and mechanical imbalance in the spine leads to dis-ease, inflammatory responses, and accelerated spinal degeneration processes.
In his free time, Dr. Eric enjoys hiking, camping, fishing, and really anything outdoors. He loves exercising whenever he can, from daily swims to weekend trail runs, or just getting out into nature. His family lives in Grand Rapids, and spends time with parents, brother, sister, nieces, and nephews as often as possible.
Dr. Eric has always loved working in a career that helps people become their best selves, whether as a teacher or as a Chiropractor. He is very excited to be a part of the East Grand Rapids and Grand Rapids communities, and to help people ultimately reach their fullest innate potentials.
