Meet Dr. Derrick Nolan

I really hurt my back playing rugby in High School.   Chiropractic care was the only thing that helped me get my life back – it helped me do the things I wanted to do.  Nothing was working and the debilitating pain and dysfunctionwas

becoming chronic.  It took a long time of trial and error till I discovered chiropractic care and all the benefits of regular care.  As a result of my journey, I have first-hand experience trying to find someone who really understands health and healing and gives compassionate long-term health care to those near and dear to me.  I use the most advanced gentle care approaches for patients of all ages and I particularly like to watch how quickly patients recover – especially newborn and younger children.

In over 20 years of practice, I have devoted countless hours to become an expert in natural non-invasive health and healing.  I regularly share cutting-edge information on stress, concussions, and ADHD by giving interactive talks and demonstrations to moms, teachers and business groups in our community.  I delight in helping others reach their full potential as well as sharing how chiropractic adjustments unleash our full healing potential.

When not putting out fires as a volunteer firefighter, walking dogs, running marathons or racing bikes, you can find me scrambling in the mountains with my two kids and wonderful wife.  In my spare time, I continue to feed my passion for lifelong learning by researching the latest in health and wellness and practicing karate.

I am committed and excited to help the families of our community express their full innate potential at Douglasdale Family Chiropractic.
