"Our goal at Newberg Family Chiropractic is to create a welcoming, safe, healing environment in which our patients time and individual needs are valued and attained. We want every patient that walks through the door to not only feel better after their treatment plan, but to have the knowledge and tools to stay better into the future."
Dr. Jacob Malpass, DC, MS
Dr. Jacob Malpass grew up working on his family owned farm in Harrisburg, OR before receiving his Bachelor of Science in Exercise and Sports Science from Oregon State University. Following his undergraduate studies, Dr. Jacob attended University of Western States where he received his Doctorate of Chiropractic medicine in 2012 and Master's in Exercise and Sports Science in 2011.
Outside of work, Dr. Jacob enjoy spending time with his family, especially his two adorable nieces, road cycling, golfing, working out, and shamelessly rooting for Oregon State athletic teams.
Dr. Jacob grew up in athletics such as football, basketball, and baseball that has given him a firm foundation for his future studies in exercise physiology and practice here at Newberg Family Chiropractic.
Dr. Jacob was driven to become a Chiropractor to help individuals of all ages recover from injury, maintain healthy and active lifestyles, and achieve peak athletic performance.
“Being active has been a big part of my life since I was a child. Throughout the years I have had my share of injuries that have put me on the sidelines and it was through chiropractic care that I was able to return to the sports and activities that I love. These experiences drove me to become a chiropractor so I could offer the same relief and freedom to my patients.”
“The joy I see in patients when they can play with their kids, work, or exercise without pain is very rewarding and that is why I love being a Chiropractor.”
