Dr. Daniel Vestøl
DC, ICSC, BSc Nut. Phys.
Daniel is based in Norway, where he works as a clinician in a multidisciplinary team with chiropractors, physiotherapists and medical doctors. He regularly instructs chiropractic techniques for spine and extremity adjustments, both in workshops for the Norwegian Chiropractic Association and in bi-weekly/monthly 1-1 mentoring sessions with several chiropractors, focusing on technique and case management.
In addition to his role as a clinician, Daniel holds three auxiliary positions: Medical and Strategic Advisor for the nationwide clinic group where he works, the Continued Development Advisor for the Norwegian Chiropractic Association and Chair of the Committee for Ongoing Educational Advancement for the Norwegian Chiropractic Association. Daniel has been part of the Norwegian National Chiropractic Sports Council (KIRO) since 2016 and has served most of that time as a board member. In 2020, he was awarded the Chiropractor of the Year award by the Norwegian Chiropractic Association; the youngest chiropractor ever to receive this award.
Daniel found his love for teaching as an instructor in the Royal Norwegian Airforce, where he served as a sergeant before he moved to Australia to study Chiropractic. At Murdoch University, he was taught by Dr. Brian Nook (FICS master instructor) and Dr. David Lourie, the brilliant FICS chiropractor and mentor. This is where his passion for chiropractic really started. Daniel’s passion for chiropractic further increased as an associate for the world-famous Sports Chiropractor, Atle Torstensen, who helped him hone his extremity skills.
