Meet Dr. Trevor Ireland
“Chiropractic Care Made Sense to Me”
Born in East London in the Republic of South Africa, Dr. Trevor Ireland’s charming British accent is still noticeable to those who visit.
When he was young, Dr. Ireland suffered from a severe spinal injury after a car accident. While medical care helped him, his injuries never fully healed and he continued to experience headaches. “With some trepidation, I consulted a chiropractor and found my spinal problem and headaches were then corrected. The chiropractic care made biomechanical and biological sense to me,” he shares.
That’s when Dr. Ireland decided to become a chiropractor to help others.
Beginning a Chapter in Chiropractic
Dr. Ireland graduated Magna Cum Laude from Palmer College of Chiropractic. He’s since dedicated his life to creating a trusting, compassionate healthcare facility for a stronger community.
Dr. Trevor Ireland opened Ireland Clinic of Chiropractic, LLC in 1971 and has been practicing here in Anchorage ever since. Proud to work alongside of his daughter, Dr. Michelle Ireland, the two work together to help patients achieve optimal health and well-being.
Reaching the Summit
In June of 1979, Dr. Ireland reached for one of his dreams, the summit of Mt. McKinley. Along the way, he even performed the “highest” adjustment on a fellow climber who had a back injury. When he reached the summit he placed a plastic model of a spine on top.
He also enjoyed his years playing rugby, named American All-Star for the #1 ranked team when playing during chiropractic college. With his grandfather’s role in the Boy Scout movement, Dr. Ireland successfully helped chiropractors be able to perform physical examinations for Boy Scouts.
Married to his lovely wife Gloria, together they have five daughters and nine grandchildren!
