We believe in chiropractic care on your terms.
You know your body better than anyone else and each situation is unique. At Gallatin Valley Chiropractic, we understand that you are in control of your healthcare. This means you will never be pressured into unnecessary or excessive treatment plans. Through careful evaluation of your individual needs, we give you educated options so you can decide on the best course of action.
We believe that pain should never inhibit your lifestyle.
Both Docs are avid hikers, spending time in the mountains near Bozeman and their favorite peaks in the Beartooth Mountains and Glacier National Park. And like many in the valley, fly fishing is a hobby. With the Gallatin River in the backyard, it’s hard not to love teasing the trout.
The Rising family loves everything outdoors—hiking, boating, fly fishing, skiing, snowmobiling, hunting, camping and rafting. Dr. Dustin and Dr. Rachel are sticklers for properly aligning their spines before and after every adventure. Chiropractic care ensures they stay healthy and pain free. They can do the same for you.
We believe a key to a happy, healthy life is family.
The health and welfare of family members significantly influences our individual health. The Risings continue to be greatly influenced by their close-knit families. Dr. Rachel was born and raised in Ontario, Canada (eh..) by her loving parents, Michael and Denise Lacroix. She's close to her brothers, Justin (who is a mechanical engineer in Michigan) and Nick (a contractor in Bozeman).
raised in Dickinson, North Dakota. Like Rachel, he has two fantastic brothers; the older brother, Brent, is a dentist in Omaha and the younger brother, Jordan, owns a helicopter drone company in Montana.
The cutest members of the Gallatin Valley Chiropractic team are Brecken, Tavin, and Croix, the Rising’s toddlers and baby. Always smiling, Brecken is already leading the outdoor adventures with Mom and Dad. Tavin is learning quickly in the footsteps of his older brother and soon enough will be an outdoor enthusiast as well! Croix is loving both big brothers and enjoying the chaos of the other two! Of course, no Bozeman family is complete without a happy golden retriever named Nala.
