Spring Valley chiropractor Dr. Doug Brady is seeing an uptick in patients in recent years as more people have become educated about chiropractic care via social media.

“With social media, many people in varying age groups are being presented with more and more information, especially in the medical field,” said Brady, who runs Tropicana West Chiropractic. “Even in the past few years through the use of YouTube, TikTok and Instagram, patients are becoming more exposed to things like chiropractic care and its different techniques.”

Brady, who works alongside fellow chiropractor Dr. Brandon Bouwhuis, said the increase in patients brings additional needs for his practice. But if he were to look for space to expand his practice, his options may be limited.
