Welcome to Russell Chiropractic Center

Your Tumwater Chiropractor

For more information or to schedule an appointment with our Tumwater chiropractor, call (360) 754-7500 today!

Beginning as a small community wellness based clinic over 25 years ago, we have grown into a multi-practitioner, multi-disciplinary facility serving not only the people of Thurston County, but people from all areas of Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. We've expanded our practice from general family care to work and auto injury care, treatment of athletes from pee-wee to professionals, moving beyond the spine to provide expert evaluation and care of extremities, persistent and difficult conditions, and nutritional needs and weight loss. Yet, we never abandoned the atmosphere and attitude of the small, family oriented practice.

While the modern world of healthcare drives us toward less personal experiences, we keep it warm, friendly, and upbeat. But all the while we take our work and our responsibilities to you very seriously. We want to be the first on your call list for a reasoned assessment of your health concerns, and a safe, effective, drugless and non-surgical solution. And if we can't help you reach your goals, we will help you find someone who can.

A Safe, Friendly and Supportive Environment

From your first phone contact to your initial visit to our office, and throughout your care, you will feel the friendly support of the entire team here at RCC. A big part of helping build healthy people is building a healthy relationship first!

Your Own Personal Care Plan

We provide a broad scope of services that allows us to help you reach your healthy goals. Following a thorough consultation and evaluation, we'll provide you with your own unique care plan, which may include a combination of Chiropractic care, Massage therapy, Rehabilitation, Nutrition, Weightloss, Ergonomics, and Preventive home care.

Flexible Payment Policy

We provide flexible financing options, including Care Credit.

New patients receive free consultation.

  • Marina Mason
    I love coming to work everyday and watching them go through chiropractic care.Our patients always leave our office feeling better than they did when they originally came in. Ever since I started working here at Discover Wellness Center I have been reading and learning as much as I can about how the choices we make affect our well being. Now I am living a healthier life and can pass my knowledge and experience to others so they too can discover wellness!
  • Talia Noble
    There was a time in my life that I really relied on drugs . . . Dr. Anderson taught me that I was not doing anything better for my body by relying on drugs. He explained that I needed to get to the root of the problem by finding what was making me feel bad in the first place. I made the decision that I was going to invest in myself and my healthy. Since then, I've been making healthier choices and living a healthier life. I sleep well, have more energy, and living pain free! The investment was totally worth it!
  • Maya Moore
    I have always believed in the alternative to traditional medicine. I never was the type of person to take medications or pop a Tylenol or Advil. Working with Dr. Anderson I continue to learn how the body works and what happens when it is not working properly. Now I know that I the potential and power to heal comes from within.I love working with Dr. Anderson because he helps me live a more fulfilling life!
