Bothell physician becomes first certified sports chiropractor in Northshore

Dr. David Arthur recently passed the American Board of Chiropractic Sports Physicians Certification Exam, becoming the only certified sports chiropractor in the Bothell, Kenmore and Lake Forest Park areas. Requiring 50 hours of classroom time and a minimum of 50 hours of online study, Arthur’s areas of study included shoulder injuries, hips, knees and concussion protocol and treatment. Upon passing the certification exam, Arthur has added sports chiropractic care to his extensive practice at the Corner on Wellness Chiropractic Center in Bothell.

Arthur has had a lifelong interest both in chiropractic care and sports injury treatment.

“I injured my back when I was only 13 while training for a swimming competition, and it was the chiropractic care I received that not only helped me to perform at a high level, but set the course for my life’s work. This sports certification is a very important milestone for me and I can’t wait to share these skills with my patients,” he said.

In addition to his recent sports chiropractic certification, Arthur has done extensive postgraduate study in the fields of spinal trauma, athletic performance, biomechanics and orthopedics. He is a member of the Washington State Chiropractors Association and the American Chiropractic Association.

Arthur is a co-owner of the Corner on Wellness Chiropractic Ceneter in Bothell that he runs with his wife and chiropractor partner, Dr. Suzie Shay. For sports related injuries and all other chiropractic needs, reach him at (425) 485-7507 or
