Dr. Daniel W. Hamlin
Graduated from Palmer Chiropractic School in 1997. Prior to studying at Chiropractic School, he received his Bachelor of Science degree in 1993 and also worked as a surgical technician while in the US Navy and Navy Reserves from 1987 to 1993. As a surgical technician, Dr. Hamlin spent thousands of hours assisting in many operating rooms, seeing first hand the results of 'bad backs' and what happens to people who have back and neck surgeries. That experience led him away from traditional medicine and into a more preventive/wellness based approach to living.
Dr. Hamlin has been practicing for over 18 years and has been serving the Napa Valley for 14 years. After graduating from chiropractic school, Dr. Hamlin spent a year working with many professional athletes from the San Francisco Giants, San Francisco 49ers and the San Jose Sharks as an associate doctor in a busy Silicon Valley practice. Since that time, Dr. Hamlin has kept up to date on many continuing educational classes, ensuring that his patients receive the most comprehensive and advanced chiropractic care available in the napa valley.
Dr. Hamlin has had specialized training in treating many different health problems such as automobile 'whiplash' injuries, industrial and work injuries, disc herniations, and pediatric adjusting. Utilizing many techniques in the office like Palmer Specific, Activator and our practice can treat patients and conditions that many offices just don't have the resources to do.
Dr. Hamlin is an avid athlete and outdoorsman, having competed and finished over two hundred triathlons, including three Ironmans, 12 marathons and over a hundred century rides. He can often be seen around the Napa Valley on his road and mountain bikes, doing Cross Fit workouts at the St. Helena High weight room every morning or coaching his boy's sports teams. He also enjoys treveling, camping, backpacking, fishing and wine making.
