Life West marks 40 years of promoting vitalistic chiropractic

Life Chiropractic College West is preparing to mark a huge anniversary in March.

Nearly 40 years ago, chiropractors George Anderson and Sid Williams reached a deal to keep Pacific States Chiropractic College from closing. In 1981, Life Chiropractic College West was born and President Gerry Clum stepped in as the new leader.

In the latest issue of Life West Magazine, Clum writes about the early days of the college and his journey to the college presidency, which is now held by Ron Oberstein, DC.

As the chiropractic industry continues to celebrate great moments in chiropractic and vitalistic history after the 125th anniversary of the first chiropractic adjustment in September 2020, Life West kicks off a 40th anniversary celebration by sharing excerpts from interviews, emails and letters from those who were there at the beginning of the college’s own story.

Commemorate these important milestones with us! Enjoy our latest magazine issue online and on the Life West website at
