South Boulder Chiropractic

Confused about why our clinic is now named Well Spine Family Chiropractic? What happened to South Boulder Chiropractic?

In 2016, we retired the South Boulder Chiropractic clinic name as we moved space from South Boulder to South East Boulder. The South Boulder Chiropractic name was owned by two doctors, Dr. Amber Thompson, DC and Dr. Mary Elsea, DC. Thanks in part to our wonderful patients, our family clinic portion was growing and growing and we needed more space. To accommodate this, we MOVED space and are both continuing on with our entity names. More questions? Ask us at your next visit!
