Dr. Don Lathrop provides chiropractic care to people in Olympia. We regularly hear from many people who have never been to a chiropractor. If you've never had chiropractic care, you might be surprised about how it can help you improve your health. Chiropractic was first developed in the 1890s, and it works by restoring the normal and healthy functioning of your central nervous system by adjusting the spine. Your Olympia, WA chiropractor helps you by using natural, hands-on care that doesn't involve risky drugs or surgery.


Massage therapy is a very useful modality and a service that we provide to our clients in Olympia, WA. Over the last 20 years, a great deal of scientific research has been done on the benefits of massage therapy. We've collected some of these studies to help you understand your health condition and how massage might be able to help. If you would like to schedule an appointment with our licensed therapists, give our office a call today at (360) 352-2488. Massage therapy has been found to be effective for alleviating other types of pain, as well.

Watch our videos in the playlist below to learn some helpful exercises, or browse our articles to learn more about how exercise can be an important part of your recovery strategy, and help keep you healthy day-to-day. Remember to consult with your chiropractor or healthcare provider before starting a new exercise routine. Performing exercises incorrectly or while you are still injured can make matters worse, so it's important you only do the exercises approved by your healthcare provider, and within your own comfort zone!


Chiropractic works because you are a self-healing, self-regulating organism controlled by your nervous system. Millions of instructions flow from your brain, down the spinal chord and out to every organ and tissue. Signals sent back to the brain confirm if your body is working right. Improper motion or position of the moving bones of the spine, called a subluxation, can interfere with this vital exchange by irritating nerves and compromising the function of affected organs and tissues. Specific spinal adjustments can help improve mind/body communications.
