Dr. Tunick is highly regarded in the Pacific NW and Portland area as a consultant in nonsurgical spinal decompression. Many of his patients have had prior surgery to the spine and are not satisfied with the results, while an equal number are doing their best to avoid back surgery. Dr. Tunick is often referred to as “The Doctor’s Choice” as he has treated many physicians and other health care providers who have had serious lower back and spine complaints that have not responded to more traditional methods. He has lectured numerous times and in April of 2013 was the guest speaker of the Naturopathic physicians association of Oregon where he presented “Clinical Overview of the Lumbar Spine”.
