Dr. Lars Lundstrom has successfully treated thousands of Ventura County residents over the past 25 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 25 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.
Dr. Lundstrom is originally from Sweden and came to San Diego, California in 1980 to start his college education as well as to train for the 1984 Olympics. He received his Bachelor's Degree, with honors, in Athletic Training from Point Loma College in 1984. He worked in the athletic training room helping with various athletic and non-athletic injuries for three years. In addition, he competed in Track and Field during his years at Point Loma College. In 1987 he graduated Magna Cum Laude from Los Angeles College of Chiropractic (LACC). After his graduation he relocated to Ventura where he and his wife started their family and he began his chiropractic career.
Dr. Lundstrom has post graduate certification in the treatment of automobile related injuries, including soft tissue trauma to the brain, from the prestigious world renowned Spine Research Institute of San Diego. He also obtained post graduate education in automobile accident reconstruction. His expertise in the treatment of patients involved in an auto accident is second to none. In 1991 the California Chiropractic Association appointed Dr. Lundstrom as a Board Certified Industrial Disability Examiner (IDE). This led to his appointment as a Qualified Medical Examiner (QME) by the State of California in 1995. These designations allow him to assign disability ratings and render an unbiased legal opinion about the care of patients who have had work related injuries. He frequently lectures on automobile accident related injuries, work related injuries, safe weight loss and other health related topics. Dr. Lundstrom's passion lies in the prevention of injury; therefore, much emphasis is placed on educating his patients on injury prevention strategies.

He enjoys coaching adults and children alike in various sports, including; soccer, baseball, track and field, weight lifting and the Special Olympics.

He keeps fit and "practices what he preaches" by working out regularly, including weight lifting, various aerobic activities, pilates and of course daily stretching. His favorite pastimes include reading, travelling and walking his dog, Shadow.
Dr. Lundstrom is an excellent chiropractor and very empathetic person. Every time I hurt my back, (a frequent work related hazard), he is always available for me and gets me into the office right away. I'm so grateful for his help. I recommend him highly.
Dr. Lundstrom has treated me over the last 9 months for problems related to my spinal curvature (from scoliosis) combined with injuries from several car accidents, and the results have been remarkable. He also treated my feet for biomechanical issues. This is the first time I have been treated by a chiropractor, and I must say that I was surprised at how well the treatment worked. I would highly recommend Dr. Lundstrom. He is caring and knowledgeable, an expert in his field with an excellent bedside manner.
I think that Maria very sweet person and his other person that works in his front office is very sweet person. I think that Dr. Lundstrom is a great chiropractor and he takes my pain away when I come in his office. From Heather Curtis
After having an adjustment with Dr. Lundstrom I feel great. He cracked my back. Cracked my neck and then cracked my sides and I felt awesome. After having this great experience. I would definitely come back.
My back had been hurting a lot, especially when driving. I got adjusted one time and my life drastically improved! I didn't realize how much I was avoiding until my back didn't hurt. I normally could not cook or be in the kitchen standing that long, but after my first adjustment I noticed how I could do things for a super long time! I just go back now occasionally. So thankful to find a Chiropractor on the east end. Dr. Lundstrom is so kind as well, it is a joy to go for a visit.
I'm a 60 year old OTR trucker that considers himself fairly active. I tweaked my lower back at the port in Oxnard CA, found a hotel nearby and went to bed. Luckily Dr. Lundstrom's office was within a half mile and he treated me the next day. Walking from the taxi into his office had been quite painful but the next morning I walked to his office from the hotel not completely pain free but much taller. Stayed another day for a 3rd adjustment and I feel good. Thank you Doc
