Dr. Lars Lundstrom has successfully treated thousands of Ventura County residents over the past 23 years. Patients come from Thousand Oaks, Fillmore, Ojai, Santa Barbara, Santa Paula, and Oxnard to receive the expert Chiropractic care Dr. Lundstrom has to offer. Patients travel from near and far because they have come to trust Dr. Lundstrom to get to the root of their problem quickly, getting them back to pre-injury status as soon as possible. Patients often find it refreshing when they do not have to get on a "treatment program" requiring frequent visits at frequent intervals. Over the last 23 years Dr. Lundstrom has worked hard to restore the reputation of chiropractic to the ideal that was spoken by Thomas Edison, "The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest her or his patients in the care of the human frame, in a proper diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease." Dr. Lundstrom utilizes personalized care, chiropractic manipulation, nutritional education, physical therapy modalities, and stretching and exercise therapies to help his patients regain their health. His practice is not a "production line" - Dr. Lundstrom spends time with each patient giving treatment that is specific and individualized for each and every person who enters his office. Dr. Lundstrom is trained in many different adjustment techniques and will use the technique he deems most beneficial for the patient.
