About Dr. Garreth MacDonald
Dr. MacDonald began practicing in Eugene, Oregon, in 2000. He came to the study of chiropractic by way of his undergraduate degree in kinesiology, receiving his Bachelor of Science from the University of Ontario, Canada, in 1992. He then began working in a chiropractic office designing and implementing patient rehabilitation programs. After nine months he was hired onto a larger firm working as a kinesiologist alongside a physiotherapist, occupational therapist, physician, and clinical caseworker. While there, he started his own company for hydrotherapy, providing a less strenuous alternative to land-based exercises by conducting them in water.
Wanting to be able to offer more resources to patients, Dr. MacDonald decided to go into the chiropractic profession. He graduated from Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis, Missouri, in 1999. Dr. MacDonald moved to Eugene shortly thereafter and opened a practice within the next year.
In his spare time, Dr. MacDonald volunteers for the Eugene Generals Junior A Hockey Club as the Head Athletic Trainer and one of the team’s medical staff. He also enjoys playing hockey himself. He and his beautiful wife Rebecca have five children: Aubrey, Brysen, Lillian, Anwen and Brynlee.
