As a high school athlete, Dr. Philip DeVasto experienced the benefits of chiropractic treatment and was impressed with how efficiently he recovered. After earning his undergraduate degree, he decided to pursue his doctorate in chiropractic and moved across country to Portland, Oregon; in 2010 he graduated cum laude from The University of Western States. He currently serves as adjunct faculty for the University of Western States, and mentors qualified students through their preceptorship programs.
With a love of sports, Dr. DeVasto naturally gravitated to chiropractic sports medicine, and that interest led to further certification in Active Release Technique (ART). He had the privilege to apply these skills with many great athletes as part of the ART Ironman treatment team in Coeur d’Alene, the Portland Rev3 Triathlon team, the Warner Pacific University Men’s basketball team and many other professional athletes. Although he has experience with elite level performance, Dr. DeVasto enjoys helping every patient optimize their function, and happily discusses nutrition, diet and healthy cooking.
In addition to sports medicine, he also enjoys discussing nutrition, diet, and cooking ideas with his patients to help them achieve optimal health. When he is not treating patients, Dr. DeVasto spends his time racing cyclocross, skiing at Mt. Hood, hiking in the gorge, shopping the local farmers markets, running in Mt. Tabor, wine tasting in the valley, and trying new local restaurants.
Dr. DeVasto met his wife Amanda in Portland, and together they spend their free time exploring the Pacific Northwest. They enjoy mountain biking, skiing, exploring new hikes, shopping the local farmers markets, improving their yoga practices, and after all that activity, they recharge by wine tasting in the valley and savoring the tasty offerings of new local restaurants.
