What You Need to Know

There's no simple formula.

Your body is a complex and highly interactive system. Not every problem can be solved by the pill or the knife. In many cases, more balanced and less intrusive treatments are the most effective.

Don't let your pain sideline you

A small injury today can lead to bigger problems tomorrow. Get back on track, with the confidence that you have properly healed, and are as strong or stronger than you were before.

You are the key.

Your health and wellness depend on a variety of factors, most importantly you. Exercise, nutrition, habits, routine, posture, activity level… all aspects of your daily life play a role.

Push through the pain? Not so fast.

Your pain is an important indicator that something is wrong, maybe seriously. The only way to truly resolve pain is to treat the underlying cause. Ignoring it or treating just the symptom could make things worse.

Don't just recover... improve!

With proper treatment and rehabilitation of your injury, you can come back better than before: physically, mentally, and emotionally. Learn your body, and how best to use and care for it, and you’ll be amazed by what you can accomplish.

When you feel better, YOU FEEL BETTER.

Pain casts a cloud over every aspect of our lives. Learning to endure it is not the answer. When you’re free from pain, you have more room to excel, enjoy life, and be your best possible self.

      We are very proud to announce that our patient, Stefan Raeth, a right-handed pitcher with the University of Washington Huskies was selected in the 17th round of the Major League Baseball draft by the Seattle Mariners. He is the 13th University of Washington product to be selected by Seattle in the MLB First-Year Player Draft.

      Stefan definitely earned this opportunity. And he earned it the "old fashioned way" with diligent, hard work in spite of the always present naysayers. He spent hours with Dana to develop added strength and muscle mass to compete at the highest level as well as countless hours of baseball practice and coaching to hone his skills.

      Congratulations absolutely must be extended to Stefan's magnificent parents, Thomas and Tamara Raeth, whose steadfast love and support would not have made this moment possible.
      Way to go, Stefan!!

      Yes, Spinal Manipulation, more commonly known to the public as "Chiropractic Adjustments" does have a positive impact on athletes, including strength athletes. The benefits of spinal manipulation with respect to athletic performance, in general, have been reported with increasing frequency.

      It shouldn't be necessary but we would nevertheless point out that Chiropractic Adjustments are certainly not a "magic bullet" to cure disease or fix all human problems. However, there is little question that Chiropractic Adjustments are VERY effective at facilitating short term physiological changes that the right evidence based clinician can use in conjunction with other relevant methodologies to solidify true change in terms of pain reduction and functional improvement.

      We are very proud to position ourselves as the leading fitness focused Chiropractic facility in our community. We are serious about delivering maximum results for our patients and ensuring maximum return on their healthcare investment.
