Meet Dr. Dale Ellwein

Chiropractic Chose Me

“My mom asked if I’d ever considered chiropractic, so I checked it out. It was a perfect fit for me.” As a former water polo and guitar player, he had the skills to adjust people and soon took to it like a fish to water.

Transitioning to a Focus on Long-term Health

Dr. Dale attended Life Chiropractic College in Northern California. After earning his Doctor of Chiropractic degree, he went to Hollywood and practiced at a clinic that helped world-class musicians with hand problems. He was one of over 60 chiropractors who interviewed for the position and was excited to work with people whose songs he’d heard on the radio.

Eventually, he began doing house and studio calls. “I soon realized, though, that I was serving as a patch rather than helping people get well. I opened my practice to expand as a healer and help patients get more out of life.” He finds his work fun and is passionate about helping to pass on the legacy of enhanced health to future generations.

Since then, Dr. Dale has studied with Dr. James Chestnut to earn a Certified Chiropractic Wellness Practitioner qualification. He’s also authored the book, “Dear Oprah: The Health Book for Everyone,” which focuses on how to regain your health once it’s been lost, and “Life Alchemy 1.0 and 2.0,” which are workbooks to help you achieve your goals.

Outside of the Office

Dr. Dale and his wife Barbara have two children. Together, they enjoy taking their Australian Shepherd dogs to herding classes, seeing their beloved pets do what they were meant to. They also like to go to the movies together, and Dr. Dale still plays the guitar in his spare time.
