Dr. Hidy graduated from Cleveland Chiropractic College in Kansas City, Missouri, and began working in the South Seattle area in 2014. In 2016, he joined the great team of doctors and staff at Accident and Injury Chiropractic, where he helps people in all stages of life achieve better health and wellness.

Dr. Hidy’s interest in chiropractic began after experiencing spinal trauma and other injuries in high school. After a team of surgical doctors helped stabilize the broken bones, chiropractic care helped Dr. Hidy rehabilitate from surgeries. For him, this experience revealed the importance of doctors working together across different specialties to help patients achieve their goals.

When he’s not in the office treating patients, Dr. Hidy enjoys cooking at home and hosting friends during nice weather. He also likes to explore the outdoors and attend local community events. Every day, he looks forward to working with patients to understand their needs and improve their quality of life.
