Dr. Craig and Staff
Dr. Craig D. Pearson
Craig D. Pearson was born in Port Elizabeth, South Africa in 1966. He attended high school at Woodridge College, graduating in 1983. After graduating from high school he traveled to New Zealand for a year on Rotary Youth Exchange.
Returning to South Africa he attended the University of Port Elizabeth and graduated in 1987 with a bachelor’s degree, majoring in Chemistry and Biochemistry. In 1988, he completed an honors degree in Organic Chemistry. Dr. Pearson served in the South African Air Force for two years, attaining the rank of 1st Lieutenant.
Following three years in the workforce as a chemist, Dr. Pearson traveled to Davenport, Iowa to attend Palmer College of Chiropractic. He graduated with a doctorate in chiropractic, magna cum laude, in 1997. He is a member of Pi Tau Delta academic fraternity.
Dr. Pearson has been an active member of the Boulder Valley Rotary Club since 1998 and served two terms on the Board and is now the President-elect. He received the Rotarian of the Year award in 2002. In 2004, he received his first Paul Harris Fellowship award. Most recently, in November 2010, Dr. Pearson became a U.S. citizen.
He has maintained a successful practice in Boulder since 1997. He has an advanced certification in Whiplash Trauma from the Spine Research Institute of San Diego. Dr. Pearson loves all animals and respects their inherent intelligence and so became certified by the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association to bring equivalent healing energy to their spines. He maintains a chiropractic license in Colorado.
Dr. Pearson played rugby as his primary sport for about 25 years, and shared his knowledge as head coach of the Boulder Men’s Rugby Club in the late nineties. He enjoys his personal time cycling, golfing, skiing and traveling with his wife, Claire.
Mike - Chiropractic Assistant
Dr. Craig's vision for ultimate wellness brought Mike into the office where they work as a team to create a unique and complete care package for every patient. He works in muscular skeletal therapy and healing modalities that accompany chiropractic care and aide in full recovery. Clients often see Mike for ultrasound, muscular stimulation, cold laser, kinesiotaping, and rehab exercises.
Mike was born in Colorado, raised in California, and landed back in Boulder after attending college at Franciscan University of Steubenville. Mike sustained many sports injuries in his youth, which led to multiple surgeries and lengthy physical therapy. It is through these same experiences that Mike's passion and empathy for people came to fruition. On any given day, clients visit Mike for a quick session of modalities, catching up, and laughter!
Lauren - Patient Coordinator
Lauren joined the Canyon Chiro team in May 2017. She loves interacting with the patients and helping the office to run smoothly!
Lauren is from Greeley, and after studying Education at Azusa Pacific University in southern California, returned to Colorado in 2015 to work in case management for Weld County and SVVSD. Lauren and her husband now live in downtown Boulder and enjoy exploring, traveling, cooking together, live music, and all the outdoor adventures Colorado has to offer.
Yezi - Resident Canine
Yezi is our resident canine. She is an English Bull Terrier. You may recognize her resemblance to the Target dog mascot or Spuds Mackenzie. She has been in the office more days than the doctor. She is very sweet and loves everyone. You are always welcome to come say hi to Yezi and give her love. She will certainly brighten your day! However, she does not often roam the office freely because she's known to chew up all the toys in the kids box.
