Meet Our Upper Cervical Chiropractor
Greg Dutson, DC was born and raised in North Idaho. After honorably serving in the U.S. Navy, he earned his doctorate of Chiropractic at Palmer College and graduated with both academic and research honors.
While in high school Dr. Dutson suffered from chronic headaches and neck pain following a motorcycle accident. His doctor at the time informed him that the chronic pain was a residual from the accident and he would just have to learn to live with it. It wasn’t until four years later that a medical physician in the Navy recommended he see a chiropractor that he realized there was hope. The chiropractic care he received completely resolved his chronic neck pain and headaches. While under care he learned that the body can often heal naturally when the nervous system is functioning optimally.
It was at that moment that he decided that he would become a chiropractor so that he could help others experience hope and healing just like he did.
Before moving to Texas, Dr. Dutson practiced general chiropractic in Idaho for 20 years. While there he was appointed by the Governor to the Idaho Board of Chiropractic Examiners and also served on the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners. While practicing in Idaho, Dr. D used to refer difficult and severe cases to an upper cervical chiropractor because he would often see his patients obtaining amazing results that they weren’t achieving with the care he’d been providing as a general chiropractor. An added plus was that specific upper cervical care did not require any twisting, popping or cracking of the neck. It was this personal experience that drove Dr. Dutson to return for advanced, post-graduate training in upper cervical care and the neurology of the Cranio-Cervical Junction (head, upper neck, and brainstem.) Even after all these years, he is still passionate about keeping up with the latest research and providing gentle and precise upper cervical care. It’s exciting to see lives changed through upper cervical care. Dr. Dutson has postgraduate training in Orthospinology, NUCCA, Atlas Orthogonal (AO), Functional Neurology and Vestibular Rehabilitation.
Although North Idaho will always be home, he lives in San Antonio with his wife Kristi. Between them, they share four wonderful children…three live here in Texas and one in Washington. He enjoys time with family & his dogs, Shelby, and Mr. Bo. Dr. Dutson is a cowboy at heart and he enjoys music along with his favorite spectator sport: Rodeo…The toughest sport on dirt!

Straight from our satisfied clients
Dr. Dutson is amazing! I had spoken to 2 Orthopedic physicians with no answers but prescriptions for medications. Dr. D. carefully listened to my issues and worked hard to diagnose the problems. I am pain free now without the constant worry that I have to live in pain and limited range of motion forever.
Dr Dutson is very professional about what he does. He is the most caring Dr that I have had the pleasure of knowing for the past 10 years. He takes his time to describe the tests he will have to do. He talks you through every single detail. If you are looking for an A+ Upper Cervical Chiropractor please don't look any further.
The work of Dr. Greg Dutson has been life changing for me. Until approx 3 months ago I was having to take a prescription migraine pill EVERY day. I started having days with little or no headache after the 3-4 visit. I have done most things available for headaches for the last 10 yrs, including Mayo Clinic where they told me I have bad genes and sent me home. I am super happy with Dr. Dutson's care and have had zero pain during treatment. Unbelievable!
I highly recommend Dr. Dutson. His knowledge and expertise is excellent. He described every step with complete detail and function. He is equipped with the most modern tools for adjustments. His technique of chiropractic service gave me back my life.
Dr. Dutson is gifted, professional and puts his heart into his work. For years I wasted a lot of money going to other clinics. Dr. Dutson is worth every penny and more. If you're skeptical, don't be! He's super good at what he does.
I went to Dr. Dutson with vertigo, neck pain and headaches. Dr. Dutson did a very thorough exam, asked lots of questions and actually listened to what I had to say. After just one adjustment, I felt great. Still not 100% but getting better with each day. I highly recommend Dr. Dutson.
Highly recommend. He helped me with my tinnitus and vertigo after two other ENT's told me to just deal with it. He has helped me make tremendous progress I thought I would never see. Super happy with the results and I can’t thank him enough. I feel like I'm able to live again!
For the first time in many years I have hope. Dr.Dutson helped me find the answers when no one else could. I hightly recommend Dr. Dutson and his clinic. They are steps above any chiropractic clinic I have ever been to. Worth every penny.
Thank you Dr. Dutson and Thrive office for caring so much for Colin when he was in so much pain. We know that God placed you in our path. We are forever grateful for y'all and you were certainly instrumental in his healing journey! God Bless!
Dr. Dutson’s work is different! The adjustments have made a marked difference in my ease of movement and general physical comfort. His caring attitude, devotion to healing, commitment to learning, ability to explain, and skill is most inspiring. I gladly recommend this clinic!
Dr. Dutson is a miracle worker. Because of his care, I now have my balance back after suffering 18 months of 24/7 vertigo. I am 80 years old and could not walk without assistance. Now I am enjoying life again, walking well, driving and participating in activities. I highly recommend Dr. Dutson.
Dr. Dutson completely turned my life around. I was in a world of unexplained pain and had a prior surgery to fix the supposed problem without any relief. Dr. Dutson spent approximately 2 hours with me during my first visit doing scans, tests, etc. and within 48 hours found the issue that was TRULY causing my pain. Shortly after, a plan was put in place and I'm no longer in pain which I never thought I would say. This truly is a practice that cares about people and I owe so much to them and the work they did to help me.
