Meet Dr. Lisa Walsh

Chiropractor Pacifica, Dr. Lisa Walsh“I was an athlete growing up, and was planning on attending physical therapy school, so I always wanted to work with people in a physical way.” Dr. Lisa first earned a degree in human biodynamics from UC Berkeley. She met a student who turned her on to chiropractic. “He got me really pumped up about it.” Dr. Lisa attended chiropractic college at Life Chiropractic College West. She earned a Doctor of Chiropractic in 2002.

Helping Patients Get Better Naturally

Dr. Lisa likes that, with chiropractic care, she can help patients get better. “I worked in a physical therapy office. A lot of people would come in and then return when they weren’t better.” She didn’t see them improving as much and heard that chiropractic care is more effective in enhancing one’s health.

Providing Kids With Safe, Drug-Free Care

With five children, Dr. Lisa loves helping kids enjoy optimal health that comes with having a healthy nervous system. “I’ve always been drawn to working with kids. I just love working with them—it makes me happy.”

She sees children of all ages and can manage an array of common childhood conditions. Dr. Lisa can address neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism. In addition, she can help with ear infections, allergies and sports injuries.

A Woman on a Mission

Through all of the years that Dr. Lisa has been in practice, she had to follow someone else’s mission while working in their office. When she purchased the practice that she would rebuild as Coastal Family Wellness here in her hometown, she was thrilled to be able to put her stamp on it. Feeling inspired and energized, Dr. Lisa loves providing healing services to patients.

She wants to help kids avoid constant disciplinary measures, or being labeled (and possibly misdiagnosed) with conditions that would result in them being put on life-altering drugs. That’s why she started giving talks in the area to community groups and at our schools. Contact our practice to find out when her next talk will be.

Enjoying Life in Pacifica
