Dr. Shane Bartels, D.C.

Dr Shane may be new to Back To Wellness but he is not new to chiropractic! Dr Shane received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from University of Western States in Portland, Oregon and a BS in Health and Exercise Science from Colorado State University. With over 7 years of experience in the Chiropractic field and having performed more than 85,000 professional treatments on patients, Dr Shane is more than qualified to join the Back To Wellness team! Dr Shane is also not a new face to the Derrys! Dr Shane has known Kate for over 4 years after they worked together for over a year at another chiropractic office here in Denver, where she regularly got weekly adjustments from Dr Shane! Dr Shane has also known Dr Matt and Dr Tanja for over a year due to chiropractic networking. While Dr Shane offers a lot of the same specialties as Dr Matt and Dr Tanja such as Cold Laser Therapy, Acupuncture, specialized muscle stretching and therapeutic exercises, Dr Shane also offers Integrative Dry Needling, massage (vibracusser) and nutrition analysis and therapy!

Who is Dr Shane? He is a pretty boring family man. He lives with his wife Kelly and their two boys, Kyler and Canon, in Littleton. He loves to get to the mountains (three times a year) for backpacking (2 hour walks with a stroller), camping (in cabins), and fishing (wading in a stream). He loves to play golf, basketball (not with Dr Matt, workout (wrestles with his boys and does the hydro-massage bed at the gym), study and read (but mostly listen to audiobooks) and sing (in the shower). We hope you are as excited to meet Dr Shane as we are to have him here and he is to be here!
