Doctor Johns

Keith D. Johns D.C., P.C.

I originally became interested in medicine in high school. Immediately upon graduation, I entered the military and worked as a medical corpsman. After a couple of years, I continued education and became a respiratory therapist. I spent over 15 years specializing in adult critical care, E.R, neonatology, and pediatrics. Eventually, I started looking around at various aspects of medicine including alternative care medicine and stumbled upon chiropractic. That changed the whole direction of my life.

I graduated from Western States Chiropractic College in 1989 and opened Milwaukie Chiropractic Center in November the same year. My philosophy was simple: provide the best service, care, and experience one could expect to receive when seeing their doctor and everything else will fall into place.

I have enjoyed over 26 years of practice taking care of my friends, families, and surrounding communities. When I am not at the office you can find me somewhere with my family, at the gym, dirt biking, quad riding, cycling, running, boating, snowboarding, wake boarding, swimming or somewhere on the road, just traveling.

We have grown steadily over the past 21 years and now have a staff of 18 and we are open six days a week. I have been blessed to be surrounded by such a wonderful, professional group of people every day.

Theresa White

Theresa White D.C.

I have been a chiropractor for 22 years now. I moved here from California in 1996 with my three kids to go to chiropractic school. I graduated from WSCC in 2000 and practiced in Oregon City for many years. I joined Milwaukie Chiropractic Center in January 2008. When I’m not working, I like to enjoy the outdoors with friends and family as well as hiking, skiing, and boating. I also enjoy cooking and fermenting foods.

With experience I have learned that the philosophy ‘one size fits all’ doesn’t work well, I have incorporated multiple chiropractic techniques for adjusting. I use diversified, which I learned at WSCC and with ongoing education and training I have learned some other gentle methods which include the Freeman Method, SOT, Activator, and drop table. This makes for a nice variety of chiropractic adjusting methods and techniques to offer my patients.

My patients are of all ages, both young and old. I treat patients with auto injuries, work injuries, and sports injuries. I treat pregnant moms and new babies suffering with ailments from colic to torticollis. I treat children with scoliosis, injuries and ear infections. I treat patients with aches and pains to patients with fibromyalgia. Sure, I treat spinal problems, subluxations, disc bulges, and arthritis, but I also treat extremities from shoulders, elbows, hands, hips, knees and feet. All of these problems depend on a healthy nervous system in order for them to heal.

Life is too short and it is meant to be enjoyed. Don’t accept living with pain.

We have a great team in our office here at Milwaukie Chiropractic Center, from the doctors and massage therapists, to our receptionists and billing department. We are here to help you!

Tanner Johns

Tanner Johns D.C., B.S.

I was born and raised in the Clackamas/Happy Valley Oregon area. I played basketball and football in high school, then went on to play basketball in college at Southern Oregon University (formerly known as SOC) in Ashland, Oregon. At the start of my college career I studied business and marketing. It was during a summer part time job here at Milwaukie Chiropractic Center that I developed a passion for health care. I observed how appreciative patients were after their symptoms were relieved and how it improved their quality of life. It was then that I wanted to change my career path and pursue becoming a Chiropractor to be able to help people like this.

I graduated from the University of Western States here in Portland, Oregon in December 2017. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Human Biology and Doctorate of Chiropractic. I implement a variety of manual therapy techniques such as diversified adjusting, Flexion-Distraction, McKenzie, Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM), neuromuscular rehabilitation, and Kinesio Taping. I focus mainly on acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions like neck and back pain, headaches, whiplash, sciatica, carpal tunnel, and athletic injuries, with the intent to minimize pain and improve function to get you back to performing the things you like to do on a day to day basis. I may be young, but I am very well trained, dedicated, devoted and passionate about people’s health and well being that I will do everything in my power to help you reach your goals, whatever they may be.

When I am not in the office treating patients you will find me doing many different things; ATV/Quad riding, boating, snowboarding, at the gym (BFit/24 Hour Fitness in Clackamas), hiking, traveling, and going to Blazers/Ducks games.

FUN FACT ABOUT ME: I played basketball representing the USA in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico in 6th/7th grade.

Joseph Brignac D.C.

I am excited to be back and part of the amazing team at Milwaukie Chiropractic Center. After living in Texas these past few years, I am very appreciative of being able to call Oregon & MCC my home again. We left Oregon in 2020 for Austin, TX so my wife could finish her medical residency and while there also had two beautiful daughters, Adeline & Charlotte. Being a dad has been the best thing in life and I cannot wait to see what’s next in store for our family.

I’ve been in practice for 10-plus years. My focus is providing the best evidence-based chiropractic care for my patients. I base my treatment plans on individual patient needs with an emphasis on establishing objective goals. I feel that setting goals with patients helps to achieve better results during the plan. I treat various conditions whether it be related to the spine and extremities. This includes but is not limited to sports injuries, work ergonomics, postural issues, sciatica, rotator cuff problems, headaches, neck/lower back pain, TMJ-D, tendinitis, etc. I use various treatments to best benefit my patients such as chiropractic manipulations, stretch/exercise rehab, graston soft tissue technique, trigger point release, laser therapy, activator, & drop table technique. Improving mobility, stability, and range of motion are some of main objectives after I work on getting you out of pain first. In the end, getting you back to the things you like to do whether it be running, hiking, playing with your kids, sitting at work comfortably and even waking up pain free is the most important aspect. As your provider I am here for YOU!

When I am not in the office I enjoy spending time with my girls, watching whatever sport is on, playing pickleball, golf, disc golf, discovering new places to eat & pulling for my LSU Tigers!

Nicole Brown, D.C.

I grew up in upstate New York until my family moved to Georgia where I attended high school and college. Then I spent two years in Colorado exploring the beautiful mountains of Steamboat Springs. Finally I moved to Portland where I attended the University of Western States and graduated in December 2022 as a Doctor of Chiropractic.

I have always loved sports, exercise, and learning about the human body. I knew I wanted to use these passions to find a way to help people. After working in a hospital for about a year after undergrad, I realized I wanted to be on the preventative side of things. That was when I looked into chiropractic and realized it was the perfect way to pursue my passions and help people live their best lives. My undergraduate degree is in exercise science and I love to incorporate this into my treatment. I like to use a gentler approach in the beginning, working with the body and not against it. I also use many other tools aside from adjustments like Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization, cupping, Flexion-Distraction, and Laser Therapy to treat the whole person and not just the symptoms

When I’m not in the office I enjoy surfing, snowboarding, coaching lacrosse or taking my dog for a trail run.


Adam Isfeld D.C., M.S., CCSP

I am a graduate of UWS Chiropractic School. I was born and raised in Gladstone until 11 years old when my family moved to Happy Valley. I attended Clackamas High School, where I was an 8-time letter earner and OSAA All-State in 3 sports (football, wrestling, track & field). I was offered to continue my football career at the University of Oregon in the early 2000's. I participated in 5 bowl games and 2 Pac-10 Championships. I graduated with a BS in Exercise Science and a minor in Strength & Conditioning.

I started my work career in construction as a carpenter in commercial dwellings. I then accepted a job as a Safety Director for a mining and metal fabrication shop. I worked mostly with training employees, ergonomics, occupational safety and worker's compensation. I owned a construction company that did mostly remodels and general contractor work. I finished my past career as a safety manager on the Intel campus working closely with OSHA, BOLI and the Worker's Compensation Division.

I left my job at Intel to pursue a career with Portland Fire & Rescue, who put me through EMT training, unfortunately budget cuts did not allow me to fulfill this opportunity. This then led me to UWS and the pursuit of my Doctorate in Chiropractic Medicine and a Master's Degree in Sports Medicine. My hope is to be part of the healing solutions that so many people are in need of today. I am also currently involved in the NCAA litigation involving concussions. I have seen many athletes suffer from the lasting effects of contact sports. My biggest goal is to raise awareness of pain remediation and help everyone that I can in a more natural manner.
