My own chiropractic experience fueled my passion to help people.

My mom was vacuuming and didn’t hear me as I approached to ask her a question. I was right behind her as she pulled the vacuum toward her. She elbowed me hard on the side of my head and as my head whipped to the right, I felt several “pops” in my neck. Unable to straighten my neck, I began to panic.

Mom took me to see her chiropractor – to say that I was scared was an understatement. However, after a quick adjustment from the chiropractor, I was able to turn my neck again and my pain was gone. I was amazed that a single adjustment could make such a difference. Although I was only 5 years old, I became intrigued with chiropractic.

Then as a teenager I experienced debilitating migraine headaches. Once again, a simple neck adjustment relieved me of my pain and my migraines were permanently eliminated. The chiropractic treatment I received had a profound impact on me and changed the path of my life. I knew I wanted to be a chiropractor so I could help people find relief from their pain and dramatically improve their health and overall wellness.

The positive impact on people’s lives drives me in my work.

Upon receiving a Doctorate of Chiropractic from Palmer College of Chiropractic in California, I returned home to the Pacific Northwest and founded Bastron Chiropractic in 1991. It’s incredibly rewarding to help a patient find relief from pain. Showing patients I care is at the heart of my practice – I’m never without the best interest of my patients. When you love what you do, you’re better at it and treating patients doesn’t ever seem like work to me. It’s an honor.

My personal experiences have allowed me to comprehend how many patients can have anxiety and/or apprehension when meeting a new health care provider. One of my goals is to build lasting relationships with all of my patients that are based on trust and compassion. Good communication and patient education are important. I believe in empowering patients with honest information and I subscribe to a philosophy that treats each and every patient with dignity.

I enjoy helping people of all ages, from infants to seniors (our oldest patient is 92 years old!), and in different stages of health, whether it’s preventative maintenance or rehabilitative care.

Not only do I promote a holistic approach to my patients, but chiropractic care is a part of my family’s lifestyle and it helps our family maintain proper nervous system health naturally. My daughter’s first adjustment was when she was just a few weeks old and she continues to receive adjustments – in fact, she requests them regularly!
