About

Care from our family to yours

History

You're not just a spine. You're a person with a spine.  After a visit with Bellingham Chiropractors Dr. Brad or Dr. Dana, patients are encouraged to stay for an additional fifteen minutes to rest and give their bodies additional time to hold the adjustment. We're doing everything we can to make sure that you get the best chiropractic experience Bellingham has to offer.


Brad and Dana chose to start a chiropractic clinic in Bellingham, WA due to the outstanding outdoor recreational opportunities.

Dana and Brad have two active and beautiful children Lucas and Brie. Dana chose to continue working after giving birth to her children because she loves how chiropractic care positively affects the lives of her patients. Brad, Dana and their children are hiking, biking and skiing enthusiasts.
