    InstructorVern A. Saboe, Jr., DC
    About the InstructorDr. Saboe is board certified in orthopedics, neurology and forensic science and is in his 38th year of private practice. He served on the State of Oregon Health Evidence Review Commission (HERC) and the HERC’s Subcommittee for Evidence-based Guidelines Development and Coverage Guidance (2011-2015) helping to develop Oregon’s Evidence-based Low Back Pain Management Guidelines. He currently serves on the HERC Value-based Benefits Subcommittee. Due in part to the growing opioid problem he then served the Oregon Health Authority’s (OHA) ad hoc “Back and Spinal Pain Prioritized List Reorganization Task Force. This resulted in Oregon moving common back and spinal pain conditions “above the line” so treatment of these conditions are now funded as well as producing a treatment guideline for non-pharmacologic chiropractic treatments. As a consequence of this Oregon policy change nearly 1 million patients on the Oregon Health Plan can see a chiropractic physician for common back and spinal pain disorders. Dr. Saboe is the recipient of numerous awards at both the state and national levels including being twice chosen by his peers as “Chiropractor of the Year” (2003 & 2005). He has also received the American Chiropractic Association’s “Presidential Award,” (2012) “Joint Chairman and President’s Award,” (2013) and both the “Delegate of the Year,” and “F. Dow Bates Awards” (2015) presented in Washington, DC.
