Providence chiropractor arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting patients

Dr. Neil Erickson from Cache Valley Chiropractic

LOGAN — A 66-year-old Providence chiropractor has been arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting two patients. Neil Louis Erickson was booked into the Cache County Jail Friday afternoon, where he is temporarily being held without bail.

Cache County Sheriff’s Lt. Doyle Peck said two female adults made a report to the Sheriff’s Office in October 2021, alleging that they had been touched inappropriately during chiropractic exams.

Deputies investigated the claims and served a search warrant at the office of Dr. Erickson, Cache Valley Chiropractic, Friday. He was reportedly questioned and later taken into custody.

Peck explained that Erickson was booked into jail on two counts of Forcible Sex Abuse, a second-degree felony.

According to the Cache Valley Chiropractic website, Erickson began practicing in March 1983. He graduated from Western States Chiropractic College in December of 1982 and later received postgraduate training in Chiropractic Orthopedics and was certified by the National Board. In 2001, he took a postgraduate course of study and became a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician.

Formal charges against Erickson are pending the completion of deputies’ investigation.

Individuals arrested and charged in complaints are presumed innocent unless or until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in court.

    That’s a pretty disarming mugshot you found there, Will.
    I was wondering… Do you know the percentage of sex related crimes you post here as opposed to other crimes/issues.
    Just curious.

      Journalists are typically hired to write about a specific subject type, and won’t get to write about much else. I mean, someone who’s hired to write gossip pieces for a website aren’t going to be publishing hard hitting political stories. How do you not know this, Ttunac?

    I am still in shock about that poor guy at second dam. They had a license plate and a couple of witness statements, but nothing else. He could have loaned his son or friend the car for all we know. Yet, the Cache Valley Daily publicly shames him. This paper is little more than click bait anymore.

    You publicly shame him and then post your disclaimer at the end of your article –

    “Formal charges against Erickson are pending the completion of deputies’ investigation.

    Individuals arrested and charged in complaints are presumed innocent unless or until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in court”.

    Really? So if this man is proven innocent at the end of this investigation….he and his family can just go back to their normal life right?

    IF guilty…you could have waited until he was at least charged and the investigation completed. If innocent, you can’t take back the damage you have done.
