Chiropractor Sacramento CA Lance Casazza


Lance Casazza D.C.

Dr. Lance was born in San Francisco in 1971, growing up on Lombard Street, one block from the crooked street. Later he attended St. Francis High School in Mountain View and graduated in 1989. It was during this period, 1986 to be exact, that Dr. Lance received his first chiropractic adjustment and has been under wellness care ever since.

After high school, he attended U.C Davis where he played four years of intercollegiate football and graduated with a bachelor's degree in exercise science. One day after graduation, he moved to Scotland to work for the National Football League and returned it a World Bowl Trophy under his belt.

In 1998 he was accepted to Palmer West College of Chiropractic. During his time there he became president of his chiropractic college and upon his graduation, achieved the honor of valedictorian.

He has always felt at home in the Sacramento area and opened his practice here in June of 2002. Since opening, his recent accomplishments have ranged from becoming a team doctor for local semi-pro teams to doing charity work at Wellspring Women's Center. Your health and wellbeing is and always will be his ultimate goal!
