Chiropractor Walnut Creek CA Nick Baker About Us

Chiropractor

Nick Baker D.C.

Dr. Nick Baker is a chiropractor at Baker Family Chiropractic Center in Walnut Creek, CA, loves providing excellent care to his patients and he makes it his mission to treat each patient as a member of his family. He takes pride in listening to his patients' needs and also in helping them achieve their health goals whether it be recovering from an acute injury or improving chronic headaches. As a second-generation chiropractor, he received regular chiropractic adjustments from birth.

“When I was growing up I never rushed to the medicine cabinet when I was sick. We didn’t have one. If I was sick, I got adjusted. If I was injured, I got adjusted. And when I was at my best, I continued to get adjusted to maintain my health and protect my immune system by keeping pressure off my nervous system. I also ate quality foods, was extremely active, taking Vitamin C supplements, and got plenty of rest. That was my health care system. The key was boosting my immune system and clearing out any interference in my body through regular chiropractic adjustments. As a result, I rarely got sick. I did get a lot of stitches growing up though!”

In a perfect world, Dr. Baker would provide this important health care system to all kids. “What many parents, unfortunately, do not know is that most medicines don’t CURE diseases. Medicine often just masks the problem at hand, and sometimes they just prolong the issue because it ‘numbs’ you without fixing the underlying issue. Parents need to focus on boosting their family member’s immune systems, and a great place to start is with regular chiropractic care.”

Raised in Modesto, CA, Dr. Baker enjoys playing basketball, water polo, guitar, going mountain biking, and camping. Dr. Baker is very active and is always looking for a new adventure. After graduating from Life Chiropractic College West in 2007, he worked as an associate doctor alongside his father in Modesto. His father continues to share many valuable lessons he learned during his 30 years of Chiropractic experience. In 2009, Dr. Baker married the woman of his dreams and decided to move to her hometown of Walnut Creek to start his own practice. In 2013 Dr. Baker and his wife were blessed with a beautiful, active baby girl, Emily Marie. She loves her Chiropractic adjustments! Baker Family Chiropractic Center takes pride in providing chiropractic care for the DVC Water Polo teams, participating in many community events, and working with Rotary International. “My goal in life is to make everyone as passionate about life as I am. Chiropractic changes lives and I would love to show how it can help you.”

Rosie Russell D.C.

Dr. Rosie Russell is dedicated to helping her patients live their absolute best lives through quality chiropractic care!

As a Premier League rugby player for Life West, and a collegiate All-American, Dr. Rosie has accrued multiple injuries during her decade+ of high-level rugby, from a separated shoulder to multiple concussions, to a broken toe.

At a traditional hospital, all she'd get were pain meds and some at-home "exercises", which left her frustrated, slow to recover, and sitting on the sidelines.

Receiving ongoing chiropractic care has been an absolute game-changer not only for her career as an athlete but has become the driving force behind wanting to pursue a career as a chiropractor and share its holistic benefits and healing power with her community!

Chiropractic Walnut Creek CA Chiropractic Assistant Dallas Cooney

CHIROPRACTIC ASSISTANT

DALLAS COONEY

Dallas has always lived in the Bay Area, spending most of her life in Concord. She grew up playing multiple sports, with softball being her favorite. She was a softball pitcher for many years. Additionally, she was involved in competitive bowling which has now turned into more of a hobby. In Dallas' free time you can find her spending time outdoors, listening to country music or hanging out with loved ones.

Dallas is very passionate about caring for others and came to us with a long history of Early Childhood Education. Helping people has always been in her nature but now she gets to do so in a medical setting and has the joy of watching patients improve on a daily basis.

At a very young age in life, Dallas was diagnosed with scoliosis (a curve in her spine). It wasn't until she was in her mid-twenties that Dallas was introduced to Corrective Chiropractic Care as an option to help treat her scoliosis and the overall function of her spine. She is now under care and it has made a huge difference in her life. This experience makes Dallas even more passionate about making sure people of all ages are getting checked in our office and are receiving chiropractic care a lot sooner than she did.
