Chiropractors are physicians trained in natural medicine to support the body’s innate healing ability. Doctors of Chiropractic primarily provide adjustments of the spinal and extraspinal joints of the body. By introducing proper alignment and posture the body can begin to heal itself naturally. With similar training to medical physicians, Doctors of Chiropractic also are knowledgable of anatomy, physiology and pathology and can provide primary care services from a natural and holistic point of view. Chiropractors also versed in natural medicine, nutrition and physical therapy techniques that can support a person’s whole health.
Chiropractic has had success in treating clients after accidents, with whiplash, post surgery and with any other physical traumas. Low back pain, neck pain and headaches of unknown origin as well as internal medicine issues, immune problems and stress related pain are also successfully treated with adjustments and natural recommendations. Most clients understand that wellness care when asymptomatic has benefits of improved mood, decreased stress, improving immunity and overall increased vitality.
If you are looking for a natural approach to your health look no further.

Dr. Dylan Beamer
Dr. Dylan Beamer DC was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest in Portland, Oregon. After chiropractic school and nearly 35 years in the Northwest he decided to follow his family to Santa Fe to put down roots in a smaller and community focused city that allows for ample outdoor recreation.
Dr. Beamer came to chiropractic, like so many, because he was in pain. Constant, daily low back pain had become normal life for him and the traditional medical community had little to offer besides drugs. “Every time I went to the chiropractor I was fascinated by what they were doing. I always asked tons of questions about schooling and why they were doing the adjustments they chose. Eventually I decided to go back to school to help other people.”
Dr. Beamer has always been interested in a holistic model of care and recognizes the deep connections between each of the body systems. “Without looking at the whole, you are simply managing symptoms. Eventually most people want to know why they feel the way they do and how to fix it, that’s where chiropractic shines.”
When not caring for patients Dr. Beamer can be found in and around the forests and rivers of New Mexico with his dog Berlin. He is currently exploring the freedom of packrafting and enjoying the amazing rock formations of the Southwest.
