With my heartfelt intentions for your best health and wellness.

Dr. Carleen Thum is an experienced chiropractor who delights in encouraging people to live their lives fully with good health and wellness as their strongest asset. She works to provide natural healing for optimal living. To achieve these good results Dr. Thum uses gentle techniques to adjust the spine and extremities. She holds an Advanced Proficiency Rating in Activator Methods, a widely researched and well-documented technique which is the gold standard of chiropractic instrument adjusting.

Life takes its toll on our bodies, beginning at birth. We experience many different types of stressors, whether they are physical, chemical or emotional. These stressors are known to disturb the spine and central nervous system which control and coordinate all the body’s functions. By adjusting the spine Dr. Thum removes damaging blockages in the flow of nerve impulses or life force energy. Chiropractic adjustments make a profound and positive influence in the healing process by reversing subtle changes in cellular activity which lead to dysfunction and disease.

New practice members receive an initial Wellness Workup consisting of state of the art posture analysis and neuro-spinal scans to measure the body’s ability to adapt to stress. A vitalistic approach to care is then mutually developed by Dr. and practice member to address both immediate issues and projected wellness goals. Care also includes supportive movement strategies and insights offered to enhance lifestyle changes. Progress is carefully monitored with periodic re-evaluations to achieve optimal results.


“I am truly blessed to be one of your many patients. The care that I receive has helped me remain healthy by putting my asthma and hay fever into remission, and avoiding respiratory illnesses, which I dealt with prior to starting my journey with chiropractic.”

Healthier Lungs

Dr. Carleen Thum was the first chiropractor to check my spine when I was 13 years old in 1984. I have enjoyed a lifetime of good health based on the foundation of knowledge which was shared with me as a girl. She taught me about the way the body works and the importance of chiropractic care. I have been rarely ill, and although I have sustained injuries through life, I have been able to fully recover and I believe that chiropractic care has played a part in that! I can honestly say that I would not be the same person I am today if it were not for Dr. Carleen Thum taking the time to not only provide care, but to genuinely care and educate me so that I would become an advocate for my own health and well-being. Thank you Carleen for caring enough to put a young girl on the road to a healthy life. You are and always will be the best at what you do.
