Dr. Dirk R. Weddle
Irvine Chiropractor Dr. Weddle
Dr. Dirk Weddle was first introduced to the chiropractic philosophy of natural healthcare while still in high school. As a member of the track team and also football, he put a great deal of physical stress on his body, and suffered from numerous injuries. He saw significant gains in his performance and attributed this to the individual Chiropractic treatment planned for him for condition stabilization and long term healthcare. Dr. Weddle is motivated by educating his patients on how to improve their individual health and well-being through gentle and effective therapies. He has actively been involved in the chiropractic profession for over 15 years and feels he is most successful when his patients have a timely return to a normal and pain free lifestyle. As both a primary and secondary care provider Dr. Weddle works closely with Orange County’s Orthopedic Physicians and Medical Doctors to coordinate patient care. He is well known for proactively referring his patients to other medical professionals whenever medically necessary, thus insuring that his patients are taken care of with the highest level of care.
Next to chiropractic medicine Dr. Weddle’s passion is spending time training his malinios dog. Together they spend time playing in parks and climbing around the local mountains of Southern California. He also shows his dedication to his community by assisting the local police departments by helping train the narcotic detection and police dogs.
Dr. Weddle has been an active motorcycle enthusiast since he was a small child. Growing up he participated in motocross racing as well as racing sport bikes at an amateur level with sponsors. At the height of his motocross career he shattered his pelvis during a race and has had practically a full recovery. This experience enabled him to grow as a Chiropractor and understand what his patients are going through first hand. Since then Dr. Weddle has worked as a test rider for sport bike magazines, giving his opinion of how these motorbikes compare with others on the market.
Dr. Dirk R. Weddle received his Doctorate of Chiropractic degree from Southern California University of Health Sciences in 1999. He is Board Certified and licensed in the State of California and Clinic Director of O.C. Chiropractic and Wellness Center.
