Dr. Bergstrom brings an eclectic and broad array of talents, pursuits, skills and experience to his passion for his clients and bodywork practice. His first career was as a professional musician in Las Vegas playing trombone with the house band at the Desert Inn. He then began his studies in the Health and Wellness field and developed his craft as a successful body work practitioner, commuting between his practices in Los Angeles and Palm Desert. He expanded his expertise by becoming a Chiropractor in 2002, and has had a full-time practice here in the Valley since then.
He is also a skilled woodworker and cabinet maker, recently remodeling his kitchen in his own home shop. He is currently first trombone with the Coachella Valley Symphony, and he also plays regularly with several Big Bands here and in Los Angeles.
