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.
