Dr. Neil Erickson from Cache Valley Chiropractic

LOGAN — A 66-year-old Providence chiropractor who is already facing charges of allegedly sexually abusing two patients has been arrested again for reportedly groping another patient. Neil Louis Erickson, who was arrested in January and later released, was booked into the Cache County Jail again Friday afternoon, where he is temporarily being held pending arraignment on formal charges in 1st District Court.

According to the arrest report, a woman contacted the Cache County Sheriff’s Office claiming Erickson inappropriately touched her several times during clinical visits. He allegedly groped her buttocks and vaginal area, even though she was seeing him for a back injury.

In October 2021, two female adults made a report to the Sheriff’s Office, alleging that they had been touched inappropriately during chiropractic exams.

Deputies investigated the claims and served a search warrant in January to Cache Valley Chiropractic, Erickson’s office at the time. He was questioned and later taken into custody.

Court records show, Erickson was charged with two counts of forcible sexual abuse, a second-degree felony. He was released on $5,000 bail while the case proceeds through the court.

According to the latest arrest report, the newest allegations reportedly occurred before Erickson’s first case was filed by prosecutors. The woman had filed a complaint with the Department of Professional Licensing.

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. His information has since been removed from Cache Valley Chiropractic’s website.

Erickson will likely be arraigned before a judge on new charges Monday afternoon. He could face up to 15 years in prison, if convicted.

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