A Message from Dr. Baastrup


Welcome, and thank you for stopping by! Please take a look around, and take advantage of the information we've gathered for you here. We hope your visit to our website will be followed by a visit to our clinic in person, as we would love to start you on your journey to a wonderful century or more of full, exciting, energy-filled life.

We understand how important it is to get you back on your feet as quickly as possible after an accident or injury, as I myself lead a very active lifestyle and have been injured in the outdoors or in martial arts several times. When you're not functioning at 100%, you can't enjoy the things you want to do. Let's get you back to doing what you love as soon as possible, together.

I want to help you learn to proactively participate in your own healing, and teach you exercises to help strengthen and support you, so that injuries recur less and you stay healed and enjoying life for a long time. I've been right here practicing chiropractic in Juneau for the past 30 years, and I want to put my experience to work for you. Over the years, I've picked up quite a lot of good health information that I'd like to share with you at the clinic. If you check out the links in the New Patient Center, you can find quite a lot of good info as well.

We envision a world in which every life, every person, has been touched by chiropractic. Join us, and let us help you make the most of your life and the lives of your loved ones.

Yours in Health,
Dr. Birger Baastrup

Internationally Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician
Certified Kinesio Taping Practitioner
Advanced Certified Activator Practitioner
