We are a multipractitioner office in Spokane WA.  The Brimhall 10-step protocol is offered.  We also utilize other treatment approaches.  A wellness approach is always emphasized.  This includes nutrition in addition to chiropractic adjusting.  Adjusting is offered in both the traditional manual method and more recent techniques such as arthrostim and Torque Release.

Dr. Pat Dougherty has practiced in Denver for the past 11 years.  He relocated to Spokane in December of 2004.  Cold laser therapy has been a part of his practice for the past 5 years.  He has studied with Dr. Brimhall and several of his associates (Doctors Amy, Ediss, and Campbell).  Dr. Alvin Stjernholm, one of the first chiropractors in the U.S. to use laser therapy (even before Erchonia existed), has been a mentor to Dr. Dougherty.  Quality Life Health Center is currently integrating cold laser therapy with Diplomate Neurology information and techniques.
