Taylor Moore, DC
Dedicated to providing the most up-to-date health, wellness, and pain-relieving treatments available, Taylor Moore, DC, is known for successfully helping patients improve their wellbeing. She welcomes new and existing patients to Los Altos Family Chiropractic in California.
Dr. Moore found her passion for chiropractic at the age of 15 while working for a doctor in her hometown of Springfield, Illinois. As a long-distance runner in high school, Dr. Moore experienced extreme, debilitating hip pain.
After numerous attempts at relief, her father took her to his chiropractor. Not only did this experience improve Dr. Moore’s hip pain, it also inspired her to pursue chiropractic as a career. She started working for that same chiropractor that cared for her that year.
Upon completion of her Bachelor of Science in chemistry from the University of Illinois Springfield, Dr. Moore was accepted into graduate school. She went on to earn her Doctor of Chiropractic from the Palmer College of Chiropractic West in San Jose, CA.
Throughout her undergraduate program, as well as throughout her chiropractic program, Dr. Moore continued to work in the same chiropractic office. This gave her the opportunity to learn about the chiropractic profession and what it means to operate a chiropractic office. Dr. Moore also completed her Master of Science in nutrition and health performance from Logan University in Chesterfield, Missouri, while she was in chiropractic school.
Serving her patients’ health care goals and needs is important to Dr. Moore. She continues her education regularly and provides holistic care, where she’s able to care for each patient as a whole person, using conservative, natural therapies.
