Meet the Clinicians

 

Brian Bellinger, DC

unnamedDr. Brian Bellinger has been the proud owner of Grace Chiropractic in Eureka since 2000. After graduating with clinical honors from Palmer College of Chiropractic-West, he and his wife Grace returned to her hometown and began pursuing their dream of bringing modern chiropractic to Humboldt County.

Since then, Dr. Bellinger’s educational focus has remained patient-centered, rehabilitative care of spinal and extremity complaints. Dr. Bellinger’s balanced integration of nutrition, exercise, massage, and physiotherapies, as well as a broad selection of gentle and traditional chiropractic techniques, allows him to successfully treat a wide variety of complaints and conditions. Humboldt’s medical and physical therapy communities have also embraced Dr. Bellinger’s rational approach to chiropractic care, referring and co-treating a wide variety of musculoskeletal conditions with his assistance.  He and Grace have also enjoyed giving back to their community by supporting many local charities, and youth sports teams.

Dr. Bellinger’s personal interests include raising his three beautiful children with Grace, all aspects of health and wellness, and many of the unique outdoor recreational hobbies available to Northern Californians. Assisting people with achieving their health goals in as few visits as possible, and teaching them how to maintain them on their own is Dr. Bellinger’s guiding principle and chiropractic passion.
