University of Western States
(formerly Western States Chiropractic College)
Dr. Rich Sedei was born and raised in Dallas, Texas. He attended Texas A&M University (TAMU) in College Station, Texas for his undergraduate degree. At TAMU, he was the goalie for the men’s lacrosse team. He was later recruited to attend national team tryouts for Team Israel. After college, Dr. Sedei moved to Portland, OR for chiropractic school at the University of Western States. While attending chiropractic school, he was in a horrific car crash, causing him to suffer fractures in his neck and multiple soft tissue disc injuries. He has since recovered from the injuries with the help of conservative care and continues to draw from his personal experience in the treatment of his patients. Through a combination of conservative care approaches, including rehabilitation exercises, Dr. Sedei has had positive and proven results in the rehabilitation and recovery of his patients. In his free time, Dr. Sedei continues to enjoy coaching and playing lacrosse at a competitive level, exploring Portland’s restaurant scene, and traveling.
