Dr. Scholten - NUCCA Chiropractor
Originally earning a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology in 1996 from the University of Calgary, Dr. Jeff Scholten continued his studies graduating Magna Cum Laude from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 2001. During his time at Palmer College, Dr. Scholten was inducted into the exclusive Vogt Society as recognition for exemplary personal leadership, was awarded with a Certificate of Recognition for Extraordinary Personal Action from the American Red Cross, received a Certificate of Merit for his role as an Anatomy Teaching Assistant and earned a membership in Pi Tau Delta, an International Chiropractic Honor Society.
After graduation from chiropractic college Dr. Scholten moved back to Calgary with his wife, Kira, and has been in private practice since 2001. He has two young daughters, and aside from his passion for chiropractic he enjoys skiing and mountain biking in the beautiful mountains he missed while living in Iowa. The family enjoys travelling together and are lucky to have friends around the world due to the ties made during his years studying at Palmer College of Chiropractic.
Dr. Scholten currently serves as Vice President of three organizations - The Council on Upper Cervical Care of the International Chiropractic Association (ICA) , The National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association (NUCCA), and the Ralph R Gregory Memorial Foundation (Canada) (RRGMF(C)). Dr. Scholten also holds an appointment as a member of the Board of Directors to the Upper Cervical Research Foundation (UCRF).
The idea of being able to positively impact the quality of a person's life and the amazing health benefits experienced by his family through upper cervical chiropractic care, originally led Dr. Scholten to pursue a career in chiropractic. The tremendous patient results seen within his own practice and his vision of seeing the specific assessment for subluxation of the upper cervical spine as a first step in health care has inspired Dr. Scholten to devote significant time and attention to the advancement of upper cervical chiropractic public awareness and procedural development. Dr. Scholten actively coaches upper cervical chiropractors in practice development through The Chiropractic Way Consulting. He is the organizer of an annual conference on practice excellence in the business of upper cervical chiropractic that raises money for upper cervical chiropractic research called Practice Innovation.
He is professionally engaged in ongoing clinical research focused primarily in the Practice Based Research (PBR) arena with interests in understanding and eventually predicting and enhancing the likelihood of particular patient outcomes from a structural, physiological and symptomatic perspective. In 2012 Dr. Scholten was awarded a grant from IN-CAM - Canadian CAM Research Fund (CCRF) to study online software data collection feasibility for a PBR network. Dr. Scholten has previously had articles published in both Canadian Chiropractor and the Upper Cervical Monograph.
