Meet Dr. Bret A. White

Dr. Bret A. WhiteDr. White graduated in 1995 from the New York Chiropractic College, where he accepted a 1-year faculty appointment in the Clinical Sciences Dept. In 1996 Dr. White relocated to Boston where he practiced for nearly 10 years. During this time he was the team chiropractor for the New England Storm and Bay State Warriors, and provided care to athletes at the Bay State Games, Gravity Games, and Boston Marathon, among other sporting events. From 2001 to 2003, he had the pleasure of providing backstage chiropractic care for “Contact”, a Broadway Musical Production during the Boston performances of their National Tour.

He owned and operated his own Family and Sports practice and also was invited to provide chiropractic care for the patients of a group of Family Medicine Physicians in nearby Arlington. In addition to seeing patients at the clinic, he had the unique opportunity to teach the principles and practices of Chiropractic to Nursing Students as well as 3rd & 4th Year Medical Students from Tufts, Harvard, UMASS and Boston University, during their Family Medicine rotations.

Dr. White taught Anatomy & Kinesiology for 5 years as an adjunct faculty member for the Muscular Therapy Institute (now Cortiva Institute). He was honored to be the first Chiropractor to be appointed as a Clinical Instructor for the prestigious Tufts University School of Medicine in the Department of Public Health & Family Medicine. He continues to give health-related presentations on the radio and for organizations such as the Chamber of Commerce.

Dr. White relocated to the Treasure Coast in 2006, initially practicing in West Palm Beach and Port St. Lucie, before finding his “true home” in Vero Beach. Dr. White has been the Team Chiropractor for American Top Team & Legacy Martial Arts in Port St. Lucie and Vero Beach since 2009, and has treated many Amateur and Professional Fighters including UFC, WEC, M-1 Global, and Bellator Fighters and Champions.  He was the Team Chiropractor for the National Volleyball League, a Professional Beach Volleyball league from 2015 to 2017; and has served as part of the Sports Medicine Team for the FIVB Swatch Pro Beach Volleyball World Championships in Ft. Lauderdale since 2015.

In 2017, Dr. White was appointed to the clinical faculty of the new Keiser University, College of Chiropractic Medicine, as an Assistant Professor.  He currently teaches Clinical Therapeutics to the 1st and 2nd-year students.  Dr. White also serves on the College Curriculum Committee and is the Faculty Advisor for the Student Sports Medicine Club.

Dr. White is currently pursuing a Masters of Health Science Degree from Nova Southeastern University, with a dual concentration in Higher Education and Sports Medicine.  In his spare time, Dr. White enjoys spending family time.
