Jeff Vasey, DC, Provider

JeffVasey ChiroAfter suffering a serious back injury while snowboarding in Telluride CO, Jeff’s life changed completely. It became apparent that his work and everything he loved to do was dependent on a healthy body. So he became proactive in his healing process and discovered chiropractic medicine. After his first visit, he became obsessed with how powerful and simple a non-invasive chiropractic adjustment was. Seven years later, he became a chiropractor. He helps people feel better and stay healthy in a fun environment and feels very lucky to do what he loves on a daily basis. Dr. Vasey believes in individualized, systems- based medicine. Symptoms are clues to dysfunction in the body, getting to know the patient is key to understanding the true problem. His evidence-based chiropractic philosophy led him to study functional medicine, his newest passion. He hopes to give his patients the best care possible while educating them and inspiring them to be healthier.
