Dr. Don Schmidt


At twenty-three years old, I experienced serious personal motivation to regain my health after a severe injury. Following years of worsening pain and dysfunction, I suffered a ruptured lower lumbar disc. After being unable to walk for 42 days, I underwent spinal surgery. Sadly, pain began to return within a month of the surgery! Proper spinal alignment through Chiropractic care and corrective exercise were instrumental in achieving my complete recovery.

My undergraduate studies were completed at William Patterson College in New Jersey. I received my Doctorate from Life College of Chiropractic, Magna cum Laude.

I have been married for 15 years to my lovely wife "Tree". Our Border Terrier, Scotti, provides hours of entertainment and endless walking opportunities. Tree and I enjoy skiing, long-distance bicycling, working out, travelling, swimming, and scuba diving. I've ridden the 120 mile "Triple bypass" bike ride three times, and the 157 mile "Courage Classic" (a benefit for Children's Hospital) eight times to date.

Other important educational highlights include:

I am passionate about working with joints outside the spine. "Certified Chiropractic Extremity Practitioner". Like most Americans I was unaware that some Chiropractors are experts in the joints outside of the spine, as well as the spine itself. During my Chiropractic training, I sprained an ankle (for the fourth time). I received my first extremity adjustments on the ankle at that time. The dramatically quick recovery from that injury (and no re-injury for 29 years) inspired me to pursue this advanced certification. I am one of few doctors to hold this certification. It's proven to be very helpful to athletes of all types, as well as those with nagging arm and leg problems.

Professional History

I have been practicing in Boulder since 1995. It has been my pleasure to work with several Olympians & National Champions, and great numbers of casual athletes and plenty of regular folks.

I primarily utilizes the Gonstead System of Chiropractic, Sacro Occipital Technique, Activator Methods, Extremity adjusting, and Myofascial Release. In our office, we places a strong emphasis on teaching our patients correct techniques of rehabilitative exercise, and Ergonomics for complete recovery from injuries.
