Roy Strickland grew up in a military family and spent his childhood traveling around the United States and Japan. After graduating from BYU-Idaho, he attended the University of Western States and completed his Chiropractic training in December of 1999. After falling in love with the Idaho lifestyle, he moved his family to the Treasure Valley in 1999 and shortly thereafter opened Better Life Chiropractic.
Biomechanics, exercise, nutrition, and high-tech energy-based interventions have been an emphasis of his continuing education. He especially enjoys working with patients who want to optimize their health and participate in their own improvement. “When patients stay involved and are looking forward to getting good results,” he says, “we get them – and we celebrate them together.”
Dr. Strickland is raising four boys. “We have a ‘work-hard, play-hard’ philosophy,” he says. Some of their favorite activities are snowboarding, mountain biking, hiking, river sports, and water sports. “If I’m not working, I want to have a good time with my kids.”
As a co-founder of Upward Regenerative Medicine, he shares an enthusiasm for helping optimize patients’ health and feeling of well-being through regenerative technologies. “It’s always made sense to me,” he says, “to optimize health as naturally and as least invasively as possible.”
