Who We Are

We are elite level physicians working to provide you with the answers and care for your everyday needs. We want you to feel comfortable and confident in your road to recovery and a better you. Our training in classic chiropractic care, as well as our continued work in physical rehab and post-doctoral neurological performance and rehab allow our patients to be completely confident that they are getting the best treatment available. We combine this knowledge with an avid quest to make sure that we are transparent and that our patients are informed regarding their ailment and best treatment options. At Lifestream, you can be sure that our caring professionals have their entire focus on what is best for you to live life on your terms.


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

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.
