Thoughtfully Customized Care
Abby Mills 5-Stars August 11, 2016
Lisa is fantastic and she will help you work through your injury without telling you to take time off. I've been seeing her for over a year now. Lisa saved my climbing honeymoon last summer by taking me from devastation to climbing in a couple months. GO see her if you're hurt and don't wait until it's so bad that you can't climb!
Kevin Ziechmann August 3rd, 2016
I am a long time climber and have had a form of tendonitis in my right elbow for a few years. I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Erikson to finally get a full diagnosis of the injury and some treatment options. I was happy to have gotten more new information than I imagined I would about my injury, the mechanisms involved and some realistic expectations of how long it would take to rehab. She genuinely wants to see people get back to doing what they love and I would highly recommend a visit!
S. Coscia. 5-Stars. June 20, 2016
The only problem was that I waited 3 weeks to talk to Dr. Erikson.
Back climbing in two days afterwards. Thank you!
Every climber should see Lisa.
Ralph. 5-Stars. June 19, 2016
After years of various PTs and CPs with little or bad outcomes, seeing Dr Lisa made a big difference in my back & climbing pain care. Her climbing background and book on injuries, led to a simple routine of exercises beyond the specific pain I initially saw her for and that helped improve my climbing. Of course, PT's effectiveness is limited, focusing mostly on reinforcement. But combining massages/osteopathy to reset years of muscle tensions can fix both causes & symptoms. Thanks Lisa!
100 percent recommend Dr. Lisa!
Jeff Hansen. 5-Stars June 17, 2016
I am thoroughly impressed with Dr. Lisa. She is incredibly caring and passionate about her patients and thier wellbeing. She is a wealth of knowledge beyond any Dr I've ever been to. If you take your sport seriously and have an injury then go see her! Thank you Lisa!
Thank You Dr. Lisa!

I first met Lisa after wrist surgery to repair a badly torn ulnar collateral ligament, multiple tfcc tears + an out of place corpus tendon. Being a climber, Lisa came highly recommended from so many. @ 6 weeks post-surgery, cast free, psyched- but, w/ no mobility & a lot of pain- I had my first visit. Through massage, acupuncture, exercises + self-care, she has enabled a healthy return for me. She embodies the give-first mentality across all fronts, + is a lifelong learner, forever curious!
Dustin Sanders. 5-Stars May 20, 2016
My experience working with Lisa us been awesome. She is incredibly knowledgeable and has a great understanding of Sports Medicine. I have felt a tremendous improvement in my injury while working with her. She has helped me in the office and on the self care front. I would highly recommend working with Lisa and especially for all those rock climbers she is the person to see.
Very helpful and knowledgable
Josh Larkin. 5-Stars March 13, 2016
Dr. Lisa knows her stuff! She is a very educated, experienced, and empathetic practitioner. She is a climber, so she knows what I need and how to help. I learned a lot about my body, self-care, and how to prevent injury in the future, and boy did I feel like she cared! I highly recommend her!
G.P. 5-Stars Feb 13, 2016
Lisa has been great. First visit included a thorough examination, and an accurate diagnosis. She has given me the tools to help myself outside of sessions. She also treats using so many methods - she has used chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture needles, given me physical therapy type exercises to work on. She listens, seems really caring, and knows a lot about what she does. Especially if you are a climber - very much worth a try!
Bill Coffee 5 Stars Jun 19, 2015
Dr. Lisa is a miracle worker! I would highly recommend her for your aches and pains. After a weekend of bike racing, something happened to my back. Stretching and chiropractic adjustment helped but I needed to get better quicker. Lisa did some adjustment, pressure and acupuncture. The next day, I was able to go for a ride, able to apply pressure to the pedals.
Sarah Z 5 Stars Feb 1, 2016
Dr. Lisa was personable and helpful. She took my injury seriously and informed me on how to best approach self care. I absolutely recommend her as both a doctor and good company! Thanks!
Monty J 5 Stars Oct 18, 2014
My elbow had been progressively worse. I couldn't straighten my arm. After a 30 minute treatment with Lisa, my arm felt more loose and the radiating pain had all but subsided. Awesome feeling!!
Peter Jones. 5 Stars Jan 14, 2016
Finally there is someone who listens with an understanding of the demands and needs of a climber. I got a clear concise diagnosis and a logical prescription of self care for rehab and future injury prevention. Thank you, PLJ
Simply The Best
geezerman 5 Stars Nov 4, 2015
I am an aging (73) road bike rider (cross country 3 times so far), archer and tennis player. I have been under the care of this very caring health provider for 7 years now. No matter the sport, Dr Lisa is the one I go to when my body needs help and or repair. She is compassionate, and strives to understand how to best treat me from the symptoms I relate to her. Simply the Best!
Side Note: "Geezerman" rides his bike across the US to help those in need with House Help. Check it out!
Shelby Katz 5 Stars Oct 28, 2015
In preparing a title for this review, the word that comes to mind is excellent. Lisa is an excellent chiro. She does more than simply "crack" your back. She looks at all of the pieces like a puzzle and then works with you to find the smartest treatment forward. Sometimes its detailed, sometimes straightforward. Either way, she takes her time and ensures you understand her path forward to making you feel your best. Thank you Dr. Lisa
Side Note: Thanks to Shelby for gifting me her new unused rope!
Superb Work & Personality
Andrew Skurka 5 Stars Sep 15, 2015
I have been seeing Lisa on-and-off since 2007 or so. As soon as I get an ache, she's the first person I call. And when I'm training hard for something, I see her regularly in order to keep me straight and healthy. She offers a wide range of services (e.g. massage, acupuncture, chiropractic) and can help solve most issues, or improve them. In addition to her excellent work, she's a joy to be with. Bubbly and fun personality, brightens any day.
Tremendous Knowledge and Treatment!
Merrick Chase 5 Stars Feb 29, 2016
I came to see Lisa after spending 2 yrs. suffering on and off from intense shoulder pain. It was debilitating & I spent 1000's of dollars on acupuncture, massage, & other chiropractic treatment to no avail. No one knew what the cause was & after only several visits to LifeSport, Lisa was able to discern the root of the problem (bulging discs) & begin my rehabilitation. Lisa is extremely skilled, very thorough & genuinely cares about helping her clients to heal themselves. HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!
Dan Michels 5 Stars Sep 5, 2015
I have been seeing Dr. Lisa Erikson on and off for years now. I have been coming in for various climbing-related injuries such as pulled finger tendons, shoulder adhesion etc. Lisa is warm and friendly and is an expert in the field of physical therapy, especially for athletes. I recommend her to anyone.
Great results with few visits
Rob. 5 Stars Aug 26, 2015
I'm a triathlete and have seen Lisa for lower body issues - specifically in my calves and feet. She's great at dry needling and using other tools to work out all knots and muscular issues I've been having. I'll keep returning to her as the results I see after her treatments are obvious.
Great for athletes, especially climbers!
S.D. 5 Stars Aug 19, 2015
Lisa has seen it all and is a climber herself.
She has a calm and kind demeanor and will work her tail off to get you back in action.
Sandor C. 5 Stars Jul 21, 2015
Dr. Lisa Erikson is a breath of fresh air. I have had multiple back related injuries, other Doctors I have visited could only offer drugs, options of surgery and changing my activities. As a avid climber, mnt biker and skier that was not going to work for me. Dr. Erikson gave me another option, getting better and to keep enjoying my passions along with the self care tools to help maintain that health.
Climbing Injuries Solved indeed
chris h 5 Stars Jul 7, 2015
Dr. Lisa Erikson has written a fantastic work on sports injuries and recovery. In addition, this book is tailored to climbers. It is by far one of the best, if not the best, illustrated adaptations of climbing related injuries and recivery techniques I have ever read. Cudos to Dr. Lisa for ftaking on the challenge. This book is helping me in many ways to recover from chronic injuries sustained while climbing. Thank you!
Marina Inoue 5 Stars Jul 7, 2015
Super knowledgeable and helpful with my specific, climbing-related finger injury. Provided physical therapy "homework", and imparted a significant amount of understanding to my situation. Really psyched on continuing to work with Lisa!
Jeff D 5 Stars May 16, 2015
After making no progress in healing my injured tendon from rock climbing for 2 months, I was recommend to visit Dr. Erikson by a friend. 2 days after my session, my hand feels amazing and painless. One session with Lisa helped me more than 2 months of trying to heal on my own. She really cares about helping you and it's clear that she loves what she does. She is incredibly knowledgable and does work on a number of professional athletes.
One of the best things you can do for yourself.
G.B. 5 Stars Apr 10, 2015
I am a very active person. With activity comes the occasional soreness, stiffness or pain. My appointments with Lisa allow me to feel better faster so I can get back out there and continue doing the things I love to do. Thanks, Lisa!
Blake 5 Stars Apr 7, 2015
I came in with a back injury that had been getting worse to the point where I absolutely had to do something about it.I should have seen Lisa even sooner, because only after a few treatments it was very manageable and within a couple weeks I was back to being pain-free. She knew exactly how to go about the treatment and had some great advice on preventive exercises and stretching. I won't wait that long next time!
Sara M. 5 Stars Mar 18, 2015
My 14 yr old son had hand pain from rock climbing. We had been to various doctors through our insurance, none of whom had any idea what was wrong. The next step was to refer us to a surgeon. We were referred to Lisa through his climbing coach, and feel so thankful that we found her! Her knowledge of hands/arms and specifically climbing injuries was unbelievable. We learned so much, got great ideas on how to treat, nutrition suggestions, and the reasons behind his pain. Love her!!!
Always a pleasure
James Moro 5 Stars Mar 11, 2015
I've been around the block when it comes to chiropractors, and Dr. Lisa has, by far, been the most effective and efficient chiropractor I've ever used. Lisa was the only doctor to actually accurately diagnose and explainthe cause of my chronic lower back problems.
Breaking through pain to recovery
chris h 5 Stars Mar 7, 2015
Before seeing Dr. Lisa, I had been to at least four separate spine clinics and half a dozen nerve and back specialists. I got temporary relief from some of their steroid injections and pain management techniques, and standard PT. Yet, problems and pain persisted, and was narrowing my options in life. Then, I got lucky and met Dr. Lisa. She has worked miracles with her sport chiro techniques, and now I am climbing, skiing, and MMA training. My options are expanding now.
Quick results for acute pain
Susan Kracklauer 5 Stars Feb 25, 2015
Dr Lisa reduced pain from a skiing/whiplash injury from a 8 to a 3 in one visit. She is responsive and gifted in her approach. Using Accupuncture, soft tissue work and gentle manipulation, Dr Lisa finds the solution to meet your body's needs without over-treating.
More than just Chiropractic care...
Jennifer B. 5 Stars Jan 23, 2015
Muscle manipulation, deep massage, acupuncture, and of course chiropractic care are all in Lisa's bag of tricks. Makes for very effective and individualized care especially for those of us with "nontraditional" injuries and bodies.
Dr. Lisa is the best!
G.I 5 Stars Feb 20, 2015
Personable, knowledgeable, competent and above all....effective. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Erikson and Lifesport.
B.L. 5 Stars Feb 12, 2015
I saw Dr Erikson due to a shoulder injury. She diagnosed the injury right away and prescribed a treatment plan. Very easy experience. I very much recommend.
RR. 5 Stars Feb 11, 2015
I've been a patient for 5 years. Lisa at LifeSport Chiro has helped me through several stress ailments over the last couple of years. She has always found the source of the problem, treated it in a reasonable amount of time and given me ways to maintain the afflicted areas on my own to prevent ailments from reoccurring. I think she is very knowledgeable, effective and fair with her pricing. I highly recommend her and have done so.
Rock Climber Problems Solved
N.H. 5 Stars Jan 9, 2015
Between being a student, being a rock climber and having broken my neck, my body has a tendency for tweaks. Luckily, Lisa has always been incredibly helpful in putting everything back into place! My neck has improved tremendously since I first started seeing her (a couple years after surgery) and she was patient with me when I wasn't ready for full adjustments on my neck yet and instead used a gentle tool. She is also knowledgeable in exercises that can prevent injuries from reoccurring and keep you active!
Sesamoiditis Treatment (Foot)
Sarah Hayden, 5 Stars. Dec 20, 2014
Thank you Dr. Lisa Erikson!!! I feel like I finally have an agressive treatment plan that will get me climbing again.I really appreciate the time taken to listen, assess, treat, and develop a plan of action to get me back on the rock!
Kristina H 5 stars Dec 9, 2014
I have lots and lots of problems: injuries, tight muscles and tendons, posture, etc. Dr. Erikson works patiently with me and gives me great exercises to do at home. I've noticed a huge difference in my overall quality of life since I've been seeing her.
G.T. 5 Stars Oct 28, 2014
I saw you some months back but wanted to say thank you, and to tell others of the terrific work you do! I trust you to adjust my neck, and that's not something I do lightly!
A Meilen 5 Stars Sept 29, 2014
Dr Lisa was so thorough in my evaluation, she was able to spot my "problem areas" and provide a treatment plan that both helps my body perform better AND makes me more comfortable. She send homework to continue the work individually, and has really made some positive changes in a very short time. I appreciate a Chiropractor that works with many tools, fewer "cracks" and ultimately helps to make changes vs. the "quick fix".
Dr Lisa Erikson is awesome!
A.M Boles 5 Stars Sept 10, 2014
Dr. Lisa always finds the spot that is troubling me and works on it until all the kinks are out! She is a miracle worker! She has also help me with nutritional issues and food allergies which can cause pain and inflammation in the body. If the inflammation doesn't go away, either will the pain. I appreciate a doctor who looks at the whole body, and not just treating the immediate cause of pain only, so that long-term health issues can be permanently resolved.
