Dr. Rami Layous, the owner of Back N’ Line Chiropractic and Wellness, is no stranger to musculoskeletal pain. After suffering a workout injury when he was 23, Dr. Rami struggled with chronic low back pain for years. Prescribed medications like painkillers and muscle relaxers were able to provide temporary relief during flare-ups, but they failed to treat the real issue. After earning his degree as a dentist in Syria, Dr. Rami and his wife, who he met in dental school, moved to the United States in 2005. They both were determined to achieve the American dream and build a brighter future for themselves. He was introduced to chiropractic work in 2007 after a car accident caused further pain and limitations in exercising and daily activities.
Although Dr. Rami had a medical background in dentistry, his firsthand experiences with the benefits of chiropractic treatment inspired him to shift directions and to learn more about natural healthcare.
“I was fascinated with the results and started researching and learning more about chiropractic and how to have a healthier lifestyle,” Dr. Rami said.
Dr. Rami spent years researching and learning more about natural healthcare and overall wellness, he decided to shift directions and pursue a new career. He earned his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from the University of Western States in 2019 and opened the first location of Back N’ Line Chiropractic and Wellness in downtown Lake Oswego. Dr. Rami has teamed up with chiropractic missions to bring free chiropractic care to underprivileged areas in Mexico and El Salvador. He is a member of the chamber of commerce, Leadership Lake Oswego, and the Lake Oswego Rotary club, and he has served the Lake Oswego community through volunteer work on many occasions.
He enjoys hiking, biking, and photography
