About Dr. Douglas Gold

Dr. Gold grew up in Buffalo, NY as an active athlete that participated in multiple sports including soccer, baseball, basketball, volleyball, and tennis.


He decided to become a Chiropractor after being influenced by his best friend in College.  His friend Jason always wanted to be a Chiropractor because his Uncle was a Chiropractor and he grew up with Chiropractic treatments and witnessed firsthand the many benefits.


Since Dr. Gold loved playing sports and hated sitting around, he was drawn to do something more physical for a career. Anything but sitting at a desk all day.  Sports always came very easy to him and knew he was great with his hands.  The Chiropractic profession would allow him to use his physical attributes and at the same time; help a lot of people in the process.  A win-win.


South Florida is where Dr. Gold wanted to start his career for the experience and of course nicer weather.  He did grow up in Buffalo.  He was heavily recruited by one of the most successful Sports Chiropractors because of the many advanced Techniques Dr. Gold obtained while in Chiropractic College such as Active Release Techniques (ART). Which many athletes love.


This opportunity exposed him to the professional sports world. Many Pro Athletes live in Palm Beach Florida.  These athletes consisted of Pro Tennis players, Pro Golfers, Major League Baseball players, as well as Olympic Triathletes.  


In 2014 Dr. Gold decided to enhance his Sports Injury credentials by obtaining additional education as a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician (CCSP). He currently has more than 16 years of hands-on experience.  His passion is integrating soft tissue therapy and joint manipulation with functional rehabilitation and exercises prescriptions to maximize patient recovery.  We don’t just adjust the spine; we look at the muscular imbalances and figure out the cause.


He has the honor of being one of the few recognized by Northern Virginia Magazine as a Top Chiropractor.  He was rated Top Chiropractor in the Town of Vienna in for the last 5 years straight.

Currently, he enjoys weight-lifting in the gym, running, hiking, golfing, swimming, Peloton workouts, and of course, staying active with his wife and 2 children.  You can also spot him on his ElliptiGO!
