Located in Chesterfield, Missouri, Logan University blends tradition and innovation. Since 1935, Logan has had a long, well-established reputation in the chiropractic profession. Logan was founded on chiropractic care providing the health consumer with a viable choice to traditional medicine.

Logan University’s model is a non-drug, non-invasive form of care. It’s based on the relationship between the structure and function of the human body. This includes the ability of the body to heal itself naturally given the right circumstances. Logan graduates recognize and embrace the fact that chiropractic care plays a significant role in managing this nation’s $80 billion back pain epidemic.
