Dr. Young Ho Bok
Who am I?
Hello! I’m Dr. Young, born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri. I grew up on a produce farm, helping my parents and grandmother maintain their Korean grocery store. Growing up on the farm, seeing my family’s work ethic and community involvement shaped much of who I am today.
I earned my undergraduate degree in Psychology at St. Louis University. I began training at Logan University school of Chiropractic in 2015 and graduated with my Doctorate of Chiropractic in August of 2018. While completing my doctorate, I earned my Master’s degree in Nutrition and certification in Oriental Medicine and Acupuncture. Bilingual in Korean and English, I am excited to serve the broad community around me.
Why I became a Chiropractor?
My father was my motivation for becoming a doctor. He suffers from chronic headaches, often intense low back pain, and shoulder issues associated with farming and running a produce store. After my family chiropractor gave my father the ability to stand without debilitating pain, I knew chiropractic was my calling in healthcare. It was very moving to see a doctor truly heal my father with just his hands. It was truly a stepping stone in my career.
What is my approach?
I am principled in the roots of dynamic and diverse care for my patients. I often find patients benefit from different methods of technique. Therefore, incorporation chiropractic spinal adjustments, acupuncture, applied kinesiology, and guided nutritional support is what I believe is in the best interest of my patients. My extensive training allows me to care for my community in a wide array of complex internal and external conditions found throughout all stages of life.
I have specific interest in the benefit of functional nutrition in patient care. Because of the major impact proper nutrition has in a patient’s life, I have acquired further education on the topics of Mastering the Thyroid and Environmental Triggers via Apex Seminars. Over the next several years, I will continue to add to my understanding of applicable, patient focused health care.
Interesting facts about me?
I have always been a fairly active individual and having training in Taekwondo and Hapkido. Most of my exercise is now in the form of resistance training. I also enjoy a good brain work out via strategy board games and puzzles. While in school, I met my lovely wife, Abbie Parrish. She is an amazing woman and I don’t deserve her. Abbie and I enjoy hiking trails, exploring the world through food and travel, and chillin with our cat, Sookie.
