Dr Hunt has been helping to relieve pain and suffering most of his life. While attending college he was an EMT and worked in a care center for the elderly. He was a licensed social worker and did family preservation and child protection work. He graduated with a degree in Psychology and Pre-medical studies with the intention of becoming a medical doctor. While going to the University of Utah School of Pharmacy he suffered daily headaches. A friend recommended chiropractic care and the rest is history. Dr Hunt decided to suspend his medical training and pursue the health care profession that ultimately resolved his headaches.
Dr Hunt graduated from Western States Chiropractic College and practiced nearly 15 years in Salt Lake City where he provided all chiropractic and physical therapy services for the patients at a pain and rehabilitation facility. He moved with his family to Camas, WA in 2009. He and his wife Meshelle are the owners of Washougal Chiropractic and Massage Center. They took over for Dr Bill Gibbon who provided care for nearly 40 years.
