At Lifestream, we have your overall health as our goal.

We care for you just like we do with elite athletes.  We have helped thousands of people find freedom from pain, freedom to move and the ability to live life on their terms. We are experts in the human body and if we can’t find answers for you, we’ll refer you to another trusted expert. We look at you as an individual and will tailor our care to get you back on your feet and thriving.

You have heard about chiropractic care and possibly even gone to a chiropractor or two over the years. Or maybe you've been skeptical that chiropractic care could really help you with something beyond back or neck pain (what we're best known for!).  Either way, you’re likely leery to try a new doctor. We understand that – and have even experienced it ourselves!  We are already looking forward to meeting you and helping you move past whatever obstacle you're facing in your health.

The Lifestream Story

A Tale of Two Brothers

 

Years ago, two young brothers started their first entrepreneurial venture together: a guppy fish farm. It inevitably failed due to the already thriving guppy population and plenty of other competitors (the guppy business is surprisingly cut-throat). Surrounded by six other brothers and a sister, these brothers continued to venture on in business together, next with an also-failed cockatiel farm and eventually a successful lawn care business. Although there were several years of intense rivalry, the brothers remained close. Their passions for helping people, getting to the root of how things work, and freedom of movement increased. The older brother, Joe, decided to pursue helping others find freedom from pain by becoming a chiropractor. The younger, Sam, was set on dentistry but intrigued with what Joe began learning and how it aligned with his passion. He changed course and they ventured together again.

Lifestream Clinic was born out of the desire to help people change their life. Drs. Joe & Sam's genuine care and unique ability to identify and treat patient's health concerns was noticed.  Health care innovators reached out to ask them to partner in health-focused facilities. Soon, other caring experts joined their team and the vision grew. Today, our mission is built on the same values of genuine care for you as an individual. This drives us to expand our knowledge, resources, and team as we constantly seek out unique ways for you to get and stay healthy through moving well.
 
We are thrilled to get to work with you – athletes, parents, kids of all ages, office workers, expectant moms, lovers of life. Your health is our goal. Your movement, your enjoyment of life and your ability to do what you love. We understand that it may sound daunting to ever achieve those things right now. Together, with you, we will find a way to restore your health and free you to do the things you love.
