Dr. Scott Mindel, DC

Chiropractor in Seattle and Belltown

For more than 20 years, Dr Scott has been using chiropractic’s inside-out healing approach to solve the root problems of people’s pain.  He doesn’t look for the quick fix or symptom-solving approach offered by traditional western medicine.  Rather, his goal is to help your body operate at peak performance - now and forever.

Every day, this fun-loving doctor hears clients say:  “You’ve performed a miracle on me!”

And he knows how miraculous chiropractic care can be.  During his senior in high school, he sustained a football injury that pinched a nerve in his neck.  Suffering from severely numbed hands, his doctors recommended surgery.  Like many people, he knew there had to be a better answer.  He tried a chiropractor and within three months his hands were completely healed.

He was convinced from this experience that Chiropractic was his calling.

He earned his Doctorate of Chiropractic from Life Chiropractic College and founded Belltown Spine & Wellness in 1994. Since then he has continually expanded the office to include an increasing range of services.  The clinic now offers acupuncture and naturopathic medicine in addition to chiropractic and spinal rehabilitation.

Dr. Scott has created a wellness hub, serving everyone from children and elite athletes to the elderly and those suffering from the adverse effects of office work.  Always developing better ways to serve his clients, he recently began offering Light Therapy, a method used to strengthen weak spinal nerves and decompression rehabilitation.

Today, he remains active with hot yoga, local hikes, snowboarding, and scuba diving.

Previous to 2006, Belltown Spine & Wellness was known as Belltown Chiropractic. With Dr. Julie joining the team, the business name was subsequently renamed to encompass the clinic's health vision. Dr. Julie's approach to medicine is to take a detail-oriented history, evaluate you physically and assess your body’s current health status. This involves a thorough look through your past medical records, evaluate current/past symptoms, order new testing (if indicated) and treat the whole body, not just one aspect or system.

Her specialities inclue pain management, hormone balance and gastrointestinal health. Dr. Julie graduated with her Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine and Masters of Acupuncture from Bastyr University. She holds her a double undergraduate degree in Biology and Psychology.

When not in the office, Dr. Julie can be found cooking, mountain biking, snowshoeing, hiking and creating artwork.

Dr. Nolan Deatherage, Chiropractor

Chiropractor in Seattle and Belltown

Helping people is what Dr. Deatherage is all about, but Chiropractic wasn’t his original path. His journey to healing the community began at the University of Washington, where he was pursuing medicine. It all changed when he witnessed how the “quick prescription fix” often leadto additional and worse problems. He then looked to alternative modalities to heal his community.

When he discovered chiropractic, he found a way to help you get healthy and stay healthy. The decision to switch gears was simple. He completed his chiropractic prerequisites with a degree in Zoology. (Don’t forget to ask about his favorite animal when you visit).He continued his Chiropractic education at Life Chiropractic College West, where he graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2008. Since then, he has played a major role in opening three Seattleclinics. Outside of the office he can be found playing basketball, hiking, and attending local concerts.
