Reviews By Our Satisfied Clients

    "My sister recommended Dr. Binder to me after I told her I had been having some back issues. I never thought of going to see a chiropractor but after hearing how she was able to help my sister through her pregnancies and with my little nephews, I set up an appointment at Elevation. I am so glad that I did. She is a great overall family doctor and her passion for helping others is undeniable."

    Robert B.

    "I can say, without reservation that Dr. Binder's office is one of the best I've experienced. I have been working with alternative medicine practitioners for years, so I can say Dr. Binder has a very strong wealth of knowledge and expertise. The office is clean and while professional, also friendly and homey. When I met Dr. Binder, she assessed my issues and formulated a plan that worked very well for me. She followed up with teaching me exercises and rehabilitation that I can do by myself to prevent the pain and challenges I have had for years. She was very attentive and did a good job of explaining things I did not understand. I highly recommend working with Dr. Binder."

    Dan B.

    "Dr. Binder is amazing! I was suffering from ankle pain for the past 3 months due to a fall while hiking, and tried to avoid seeing anyone since I thought I could just tough it out. When I came to see Dr. Binder she was very thorough and attentive when I was explaining to her about what happened. Her personality was very friendly and engaging (which is hard to find with doctors now a days!) she did an examination along with soft tissue work using tools and her hands. She then adjusted my ankles which felt awesome! It took a few visits but I have been pain free after having Dr. Binder work on me. I would definitely suggest seeing her if you are suffering from any body pain!"

    Michael G.

    "Dr. Binder was our favorite chiropractor here in the Bay Area. My whole family enjoyed her caring personality and awesome adjustments. We were sad to see her leave the Bay but know that she will continue to help so many more families in Southern California. If you're in north county San Diego, Dr. Binder is an excellent choice for your family's healthcare needs."

    Dan G.

    "Dr. Binder is a very knowledgeable, compassionate doctor and don't let her petite frame fool you. She is an extremely strong and effective adjuster. I am a pretty solidly built guy that is pretty hard on my body and she has been able to handle everything I have thrown her way. Dr. Binder does great work and I recommend her to anybody seeking chiropractic care near the Carlsbad area."

    Sean S.

    "I had some pain in my lower back that kept on bothering me in the evenings and early mornings. I travel for work and found Dr. Binder while I was on assignment in California. Not only did she have me sleeping and moving normally after our first appointment but she helped me find some problematic behaviors that may be triggering the inflammation. I have to say the entire experience was eye-opening."

    Tanner W.

    "Prior to this year I had never been to a chiropractor so I was initially nervous. Dr. Binder relieved all the nervousness I had and helped relieve my neck pain and headaches with her gentle adjustments. She is very kind, professional and knowledgable at what she does. Not only did I have a great experience and learn more about my own body and chiropractic, I also left feeling great."

    Sarah B.

    "This is the most beautiful chiropractic office that is child friendly. Dr. Binder speaks so passionately about helping pregnant women and babies. I highly recommend Dr. Binder to all of my friends."

    Missi B.

    "Being in such phenomenal care of Dr. Binder has been a huge blessing to me. The initial visit was very thorough/informative and her care has far exceeded my expectations. I am a massage therapist who has worked quite a lot and she is helping me with chronic pain. Her touch is loving and her adjustments strong yet comforting. She is adapts to the variety of her clients ranging from children/pregnant women to men who need more intense work. The energy in her office is warm, welcoming and brings joy to the soul. Dr. Binder is amazing and I am blessed to have found her. Thank you so much for all of your hard work and sensitivity to every detail. I feel as though 5 stars isn't a high enough rating."


    "Dr. Christina Binder is absolutely wonderful. I came to her with a lower back issue and she fixed me right up. She also works with infants, children and expectant mothers. I would highly recommend her as she is very knowledgeable in her field and really does wonders for pain."

    Yana K.

    "Dr. Binder worked wonders on my back. Ive never been adjusted before and she was very gentle and patient with me as a first time patient. I was surprised at how much relief and change i got in my posture almost instantly. I would highly recommend her."

    Riley B.

    "I came to this place when my newborn was having nursing difficulties and we came here to get carnial sacral therapy from dr Binder. Ive seen this place before driving by sprouts all the time and now that I have been there I have to say that I'm very happy to have found a chiropractor that specializes in children. I go when I feel like my baby needs adjustments and hopefully soon I can take my other two as well. Dr. Binder is very sweet and I feel comfortable with her adjusting my baby knowing she specializes in infants. Very happy with this place and I definitely recommend this place to everyone who passes by sprouts."

    Connie T.

    "Just got back from seeing Dr. Binder and can't believe how good my back feels already! Super nice and haven't been able to find a good chriopractor since moving here from the east coast but I'm definitely going to be calling Dr. Binder again."

    Andrew M.

    "I have not been to a chiropractor since I played football in high school. Recently with my job I have been experiencing a lot of upper back and neck pain hindering me from some aspects of my job. I found Dr. Binder through a friend that started going to her during her pregnancy and talked very highly of her. As soon as I walked in I felt very welcomed and comfortable and my whole experience was extremely enjoyable. In the following days I was experiencing a lot more range of motion in my neck and my back pain was gone. I will definitely be coming back and recommend elevation chiropractic to everyone I can! Dr. Binder is the!"

    Bryce G.

    "Dr. Christina Binder is the real deal. She provides gentle, precise and effective chiropractic care - after just one treatment, I found relief from my chronic back pain. You can tell she loves what she does and really cares about her patients. I'm so glad to have found her!"

    Merrit J.

    "Dr. Binder and the staff are very professional and make you feel comfortable the moment you walk in the door. The practice is very clean and cozy. The adjustments have helped my back and posture. Highly recommend!"

    Jordan H.

    "Dr. Christina is great! Being a chiropractor myself, I really admire Christina's adjusting style, which is light, specific and extremely effective! The practice atmosphere is very welcoming and relaxing. I recommend Dr. Binder to all my family and friends living in North County!"

    Dr. Deb

    "Not only has Dr. Binder helped my sciatic and neck pain, but I also just simply enjoy her office and the company of Charlene (at the front desk) and Dr. Binder herself. She also adjusts my 7 month old, and is so incredibly gentle and amazing with babies. Highly recommend!"

    Molly A.

    "Went here this week and Dr. Binder was amazing! After getting hit by a car a couple years ago, my back has always been sore due to multiple bulging disks. It's nice to have someone that takes their time to understand my situation and try to tailor a perfect solution to my body ailments. I will definitely be back here more."

    Kyle K.

    "I've seen Dr Binder for several issues now related to playing tennis and running. I really like her style and bed side manner. I also LOVE that she does ART and Graston on me which is why i sought her out. I am fairly new to the area and she came highly recommended to me from my Northern California Chiro so I was stoked to find she is so close to my house! Oh, and her office is super kid friendly so I have brought my boys in before and they had a blast playing in the kids area!"

    Jen V.

    "Dr. Christina does amazing work! I have previously been used to deep and rather quick adjustments. Dr. Christina takes her time and has a very gentle style of adjusting that is extremely effective! I love the feeling I have after her adjustments; everything feels light and relaxed. She also adjusts my 4yr old and 8mo old to help keep them healthy!! The environment is beautiful, warm, welcoming & relaxing!! My 4yr old loves playing in the kids area! The front office staff is ALWAYS friendly and smiling. I love the way they greet everyone by name & really interact with my kids!! I HIGHLY recommend Elevation Family Chiropractic!!"

    Emily P.

    "Christina is great, helped me with my shoulder. She really cares for her patients and takes the time to talk to figure out what the real issues is. Their technology was great too."

    Adam K.

    "I have an old injury to my neck and upper back area that effects my sleep, causes headaches, and causes numbness in my left shoulder. Dr Binder takes her time to really address every problem area and also does neurological scans on your first appointment! I always feel amazing after she works on me. My energy always seems to increase as well after I leave and I can get through my day pain free and with more movement in my neck. I'm very happy with my care at Elevation Family Chiropractic and the location is so convenient!"

    Charlene T.

    "It's such a relief to finally find a chiropractor who has a true passion for what they do, and who takes the time to treat you like a human being instead of running you through a patient assembly line like most other places I've been to. I came to Dr. Binder by referral from a friend for some excruciating neck pain and migraines I'd been experiencing for several months. Reluctant to spend my time and money on yet another chiro to get the same treatment with no results, I came in to see Dr. Binder because my friend assured me she could help me out since she just helped him with something similar. Not even kidding, I left that first time feeling 100 times better and I haven't had a migraine since! Thank you doc for being there for me and I'm always looking forward to that next adjustment because I know it'll keep my migraines away."

    Brett L.

    "I have been coming to Dr. Binder since she opened her practice in Carlsbad. From the moment i spoke with her you could tell that not only does she have a passion for her profession, but a strong desire to listen to your concerns and immediately start treatment. I have on-going issues with my hips and back and she has set up a treatment of adjustments and stretches to reduce to my pain. I would also like to add how friendly and open the office feels, and i appreciate the individual attention that is shown. Thank you Christina!"

    Daniel W.

    "Me and my family had always been curious about chiropractic care and finally decided to give it a try after being referred by my husbands co worker and couldn't be happier we did. We've been with Dr. Binder now for I want to say 3 months and our visits are always a pleasure. We can definitely feel the difference when we don't make an appointment and they are always so great to accommodate us to fit our schedule. Now more than ever I'm glad we're with Dr Binder since we have a new born and he's been diagnosed with Erb's Palsy and he also has colic, I can't wait to see his results after starting chiropractic treatment with her office, I will come back to update :)"

    Nina J

    "I went to Elevation because of all the great reviews I saw on Yelp. My neck had been bothering me for months. I was a little nervous since I've only been to one other chiropractor who only used the activator. But turns out I had nothing to worry about. Dr. Binder is awesome and she knows what she's doing. My neck is doing much better and I go weekly for maintenance. And also Happy Birthday Dr. Binder!! :)"

    Amaya S.

    "I came into this office for a video shoot and just wanted to comment on what I saw as an outsider, instead of a patients point of view. First off, the office is beautiful and the atmosphere is very inviting. Dr. Binder was a joy to be around and was wonderful with all of her patients. She was great at listening to their needs and catering their care specifically to them. Also, she was fantastic with any and all children that came in. This really is a great office and I will be recommending it any chance I get."

    Bracey L.

    "Dr Binder's office is wonderful! You walk in and immediately feel at home and relaxed. My neck feels so much better as well. Definitely recommend her!"

    Jill S.

    "Dr. Binder is amazing. It is so refreshing to step into this office and feel cared for and taken seriously. It's warm and welcoming and you can tell everyone truly cares. I never had a chiropractic adjustment and was seeking help for chronic lower back pain. Dr. Binder takes a lot of time to diagnose the problem. A couple of thermal scans and pulse measurements are taken to help with the diagnosis and to keep an eye on treatment progress. The office is super kids friendly which is so helpful for a busy mom. A kids play corner will keep the little ones entertained while mommy gets adjusted. I wish I had known about this office during my pregnancies. Iam sure it would really have helped to ensure proper pelvic alignment. This office also offers acupuncture and I have to say..Alex Stampbach is a miracle worker! He will stay with his patients for the whole hour and really knows his stuff! I have referred him to friends and everybody loved it! It's about healing and prevention and if that can be achieved without pharmaceuticals..who wouldn't want to try it? Both Dr. Binder and Dr. Stampbach are very passionate about health. There is a restorative yoga class on Sundays that I also highly recommend and the holistic mom's chapter of North County has a monthly meeting here. Try it! You are in great hands!"

    Anya B.

    "While on vacation I walked into Dr. Binder's office and was immediately greeted warmly and kindly. I was in terrible pain from a rib I sprained while exercising a few days prior. Dr. Binder and her staff took me in immediately and was able to help relieve some pain. I'm also a Chiropractor and I can tell you that she has some solid adjusting skills :) I'm not always the easiest to adjust and she definitely help take pressure off my nerve that was causing me intense unrelenting pain. Thanks again to Dr. Binder and her staff for taking care of me while I was in need. I would highly recommend anyone in the area to check them out."

    Nathan H.

    "Dr. Binder just has a way with kids. As a pregnant mom to a toddler I love the family friendly environment. My 2 year old loves going to the office because he can be loud and playful while we take turns getting adjusted. Thank you Dr. Christina!!"

    Tea L.

    "Hands down Dr. Binder has the touch! For years I suffered from numerous sports injuries from low back pain to rotator cuff problems. Dr. Binder's expertise of the human body showed from day one. Through a thorough evaluation, she was able to pinpoint my problem areas immediately. More impressive she was able to explain why I was having these problems. After just a few treatments along with my personalized stretching and exercise program, I was able to see dramatic improvements. I should also mention while waiting for one of my appointments I noticed Dr. Binder working on a mother to be and her 2 years old son. I never thought to myself Chiropractic was beneficial for kids. I asked her why a 2 year old was seeking treatment and was blown away by her response. I now know I'll be bringing my kids back for preventative treatment. Don't waste your time yelping any other docs- Elevation Chiropractic is where it's at! I will be recommending Dr. Binder to all my colleagues, friends and family."

    Ben R.

    "This is a really special chiropractic office, especially for families, children, and pregnant women. Dr Binder has a gifted touch. She's strong enough to adjust a large adult but has the gentlest touch needed when adjusting small children. Her family plan is an economical solution for families that believe in the healing power of chiropractic and want to be seen weekly. My two children and I have been seeing Dr Binder for two months and started seeing positive changes after just two weeks."

    Sarah S.

    "I have benefited tremendously from the chiropractic care I received from Elevation Family Chiropractic!"
