Your Trusted Chiropractic ReSourCe in La Plata County
"I love my appointments with Lauren Preston at Animas Chiropractic! The experience is unlike any other chiropractic visit I’ve had. Lauren takes her time listening and asking questions before pushing a care plan. She has successfully helped me with all sorts of aches and pains. I will continue my care at Animas Chiropractic for all my needs in the future!"
"Last October I decided to take the plunge and made an appointment for a consultation and was very impressed with the plan Dr. Preston set forth and am very pleased with the impact her adjustments have made on my back. I feel confident that I can continue to bike, X/C ski, snowshoe, golf, hike, and do many other things that I feared were over for me. I thank Dr. Preston for that renewed freedom."
"Dr. Preston has been a great chiropractor to me and the athletes I work with. Her personal experience with endurance sports provides an advantage as a care giver for active and athletic people looking for wellbeing and musculoskeletal therapy. Dr. Preston provided a clear, down to earth explanation as to what seems to be the root of the problem, what the treatment plan is and also a clear estimation of a “return to play” timeline. If one treatment plan did not hold up to the desired timeline or outcome, then she always utilized another therapy “tool” or method. It is reassuring to know that we have an excellent care giver in our little town that can help me stay on top of my well-being and also address sports performance related nuances."
"I’m usually skeptical of chiropractors but Lauren is a different kind. She takes the time to listen and understand what is going on with you before she recommends a course of action. She is focused on solving the root cause of the problem and It doesn’t feel like she is trying to sign you up for unnecessary treatments. Finally, after unsuccessfully trying adjustments to solve a persistent neck pain she recommended needling and it was a game changer! Highly recommend."

How long is a typical appointment?

What insurance do you take?

All services are cash, however we are happy to provide you with a superbill or accept your HSA for payment.
What should I wear?
Athletic clothing is preferred but don’t stress out if you’re coming in work attire or your cycling kit!. We have on-site community tops and shorts if the doctor needs to reach a specific area for dry needling, taping or soft tissue work. We promise we wash them every time someone wears them!
What is a "superbill"?
A superbill is an itemized form which details services provided to a patient. Once given a superbill, the patient can then submit it to their insurance company as reimbursement for services you’ve already paid to the provider.
What is your cancellation policy?
Your appointment time is reserved just for you. A late cancellation or missed visit leaves a hole in the physician’s day that could have been filled by another patient. As such, we require 24 hours notice for any cancellations or changes to your appointment. Patients who provide less than 24 hours notice, or miss their appointment, will be charged a cancellation fee.
