Meet The Team

Dr. Donald W. Gibson, D.C.

As a former lineman with the Denver Broncos, Dr. Gibson is very familiar with back and joint pain. Searching for relief from his injuries he discovered chiropractic care. He quickly learned that chiropractic care was very effective and went beyond just treating aches and pains.

Dr. Gibson completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Southern California. He earned his Doctorate degree from the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic. He continually attends post-graduate seminars, providing him with the latest knowledge and techniques available.

Dr. Gibson's extensive background in athletics, both at the competitive and recreational levels, gives him tremendous knowledge of sports injuries. His knowledge of athletic injuries allows him to provide proper rehabilitative exercises to patients to strengthen musculature and support chiropractic care.

While practicing in Southern California for 10 years he was team chiropractor for the Anaheim Ducks from 2003-2008. The picture below shows Dr. Gibson (far left) and the rest of the Ducks medical staff.

Dr. Gibson has helped thousands of patients, in a typical day at the office you may see patients ranging from newborn babies, professional athletes to thriving seniors.

Personally, Dr. Gibson has been married to his wife Gaylen for 24 years and as you can see they have four beautiful daughters.

Dr. Daniel J. Hill D.C.

Dr. Daniel J. Hill D.C.

As a practicing Doctor of Chiropractic Medicine for over 20 years, Dr. Hill has learned and taught that an optimally functioning spine and nervous system equates with optimal health and well-being. During these years he helped guide thousands of patients to find optimal health through chiropractic and other natural means.

However, while practicing for this length of time, Dr. Hill observed that there seemed to be patients that just did not respond fully. Certainly some lacked the discipline to get well. Many required an overhaul of their diet, while others needed to get moving with exercise. Often these people didn’t respond well medically either. What was missing; why did some get well while others did not?

After searching for the answers to these questions, he discovered that what we think about or believe about ourselves or a situation can be experienced in our body. David Hawkins MD has now shown a conclusive link between abnormal thoughts and sickness. This whole-body approach helps differentiate Dr. Hill.

Dr. Hill holds certifications and proficiencies in Sports, Radiology, Wellness, Exercise, Injury Prevention, Nutrition, Alternative Health/ Healing and numerous Chiropractic Techniques.

In 1998 and 1999 Dr. Hill was one of two Chiropractors for the Denver Broncos, he has helped several Olympic Athletes in Swimming, Ice Hockey as well Mr. America in Body Building.

It is with great pleasure that Dr. Hill joins Belleview Spine and Wellness to share his knowledge and experience where patients can get the comprehensive care they really need. Dr. Hill is married to his wife Debbie and has a daughter Alexius. When he is not with his family or at work he enjoys spending time learning, traveling, exercising, flying, playing ice hockey and being outdoors.
