I wish I could tell my patients I always wanted to become a chiropractor, but that is not the case. My story involves severe headaches that started in my 20’s. The headaches would start in the afternoon and continue into the night and made normal activities a major task if not impossible. After one year of going to different specialists and having test after test run without answers, I became frustrated.

When I was told I needed to take a drug daily in an attempt to lessen the symptoms, I knew I had to find a better answer. My parents brought me to a chiropractor and I will admit I was more than a little nervous at the idea of my neck being adjusted. I was surprised that he was able to quickly find so many points on my neck and upper back that were sore.

Within the first few treatments my headaches started to diminish and after a few weeks became almost non-existent. I was fascinated at how something that appeared so simple, the chiropractic adjustment, could be so powerful and yet so overlooked. From that point forward my goal was to help as many people as possible through natural, safe and effective chiropractic care.

Dr. Ridgway has been in Durango since 2011 and lives with his wife Audrey and their 5 children. He is actively involved in Durango Little League Baseball, Devo, youth soccer, and snow sports. He is also an active member and a Paul Harris Fellow of Durango Day Break Rotary.

Chiropractor Durango CO Lauren Preston

Lauren Preston D.C.

I was introduced to chiropractic at the age of 19 after being placed in a boot for a stress fracture following an over-training injury. While in the boot, I began experiencing severe low back pain and extreme headaches that would wake me from a dead sleep. I was prescribed pain killers to hide my symptoms, but I wanted a permanent solution to my pain.

It was not until my podiatrist suggested I see a chiropractor; I was very skeptical of how much a chiropractor could help my headaches and my back pain. However, upon my first visit she was able to reduce my headache significantly and address my low back pain. After a month in her care I noticed remarkable differences in my pain as well as my ability to perform athletically. I was fascinated in the ability for the body to heal itself with movement and proper care, without the potential side effects from painkillers or muscle relaxers. After many years working in the physical therapy units of hospitals and clinics I found myself working at Durango Chiropractic, and decided this was the way I wanted to serve my community.

Dr. Preston has been in Durango since 2015 and lives with her husband David, and their dog Jenna. She is involved in the Durango Triathlon Club, the Durango Swim Club, and the cycling community.
