Meet Dr. Noble
I grew up in Sacramento, CA riding BMX, motocross and mountain bikes and playing baseball. I went college in Boulder, graduating with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from University of Colorado in 1996. In 2006, I received my Doctor of Chiropractic from Western State Chiropractic College in Portland. My wife, Rondelle, and I moved to Bellingham and founded Noble Chiropractic the same year. We love Bellingham and enjoy mountain biking, hiking and snowboarding with our daughter.
The Evolution of Noble Chiropractic
I chose to be a chiropractor because I wanted to help people. After being in practice for 12 years, my idea of helping people has evolved. I started out in 2006 wanting to work with athletes, helping with injuries and getting them back on their bike or in their boat in the shortest time. I got pretty good at this, I became certified as a Sports Chiropractor, in the Graston Technique, using Kinesio Tape, and even took seminars with Lance Armstrong’s chiropractor in how to use the low level laser. Patients were happy with the results:
I lost my footing while running and sprained my ankle. Dr. Noble started treatment. The swelling in my ankle went from the size of a baseball to the size of a golf ball in 48 hours after laser treatment, Kinesio taping, and anti-inflammatory supplements. The speedy recovery is amazing. In less than 2 weeks I was able to walk briskly on a treadmill and in less that 3 weeks I am able to jump and I am almost pain-free.

Bellingham Wellness Chiropractic
After some time I realized that for many people, their bodies were in a constant cycle of pain and injury and helping the symptom was just a patch. I became frustrated at this “band aid” approach. I wanted to have a bigger impact on my patient’s health. I wanted to be able to help injuries heal permanently and even to prevent injuries. After taking new seminars and investigating other methods of chiropractic (there are a lot of them). I began to work under a more holistic premise, trying to help people break out of pain/injury/weakness cycle and to feel better overall. I really enjoy this more in depth, personal care. I like to see people experience real, lasting change, and no matter their age or where they start, I can help almost everyone reach a higher level.

Improved Athletic Performance
Once I started providing this enhanced care athletes in the practice who came in for pain or injury started to notice other improvements. Many began reporting that they were seeing better performance and faster recovery, many setting new personal records and new wins:
Shortly after seeing Dr. Noble I started feeling stronger and more powerful on the bike. I saw an increase in my wattage during training and faster recovery times off the bike. With the help of Dr. Noble I was able to become MFG Cyclocross Series 45+ 1/2 Champion, place 2nd Overall in the Seattle Cyclocross Series and get on the podium at the USGP of Cyclocross in Bend, OR by placing 3rd. There is no doubt seeing Dr. Noble played a major role in helping me achieve my goals.

The Youth Project
In January of 2016, my personal life began to intersect with my work. I was 48 with a 3 year old daughter and was starting to feel a little stiffer. I also began hearing people my age (and younger) sighing “just getting older” after describing a new pain or an activity they were giving up. I wanted to be able to keep up with my daughter as she grows so I decided to take action! My resolution for 2016 was to find ways to feel younger, and to increase my athletic performance, not decrease it. My wife and I jokingly called it the youth project. I found a used bmx bike (my childhood love) and started taking my daughter out riding through the alleys, balancing on curbs and playing on “features”. We started frequenting the jump park and the Burlington Bike Park. I bought a balance board and a slackline and before I knew it I was on a new path. As I progressed, I began blending my years of chiropractic work with my new pursuit. If I noticed that my body seemed out of balance on the board, I’d experiment on myself until my performance improved. Soon I was riding my mountain bike better than ever before and even started jumping, better than when I was a kid!
Athletic Performance and The Performance Lab
I tend to get fixated on things, so I naturally became obsessed with the benefits I saw from my balance training combined with the results of my new method. I continued to refine and test and through this process, I discovered a method for improving anyone’s performance. This year I started working with patients in this new way and we have seen amazing gains in their balance, coordination and power. Athletes saw incredible gains and equally significant, we saw many patients able to regain lost ability and to gain new confidence in their movement. This success led to the formation of The Performance Lab. I have found that integrating The Performance Lab into everyone’s care results in faster, more lasting improvements in my patients health.
