Dr. Shane Walton

Dr. Shane Walton was born and raised in Bangor, Maine. He attended the University of Maine where he received his Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology with a focus in Exercise Science. Dr. Walton then moved to San Jose, California to attend Palmer College of Chiropractic West to receive his Doctorate of Chiropractic.

Dr. Walton grew up playing football, baseball, basketball and competed in track and field. His love for sports had him getting regular chiropractic treatments to keep him competing at a high level. The results of his own experiences and success with chiropractic led to him pursue a career in the field.

Outside the office, Dr. Walton continues to lead a health and fitness driven lifestyle. You can often find him on the Burke-Gilman or running around Greenlake when he is not out in the mountains hiking, camping and exploring all that the Pacific Northwest has to offer.


Traci Thompson

Licensed Massage Practitioner

A graduate of Port Townsend School of Massage in 2006, Traci has been helping people to heal naturally ever since. Traci suffered from frequent headaches for years, and her love for Chiropractic started in 2011 after her first adjustment while doing massage therapy in a Chiropractic office in Southern California. She was in awe that the pain she’d dealt with for so long seemed to disappear instantly. She always had a passion for natural healing through massage, healthy diet and exercise, and was now SO excited that she could add Chiropractic to that passion as well.  She now sees massage and chiropractic going hand-in-hand – both great on their own, but even better together. She continued doing massage work at that office for six years before returning home to Seattle and joining the Fremont Spine & Wellness team.  In her free time, Traci enjoys cooking healthy meals, reading thrillers, and traveling to new places as often as she can.

Ziggy S. Thompselquist

Chief of Morale Officer

Ziggy takes his position as "Chief of Morale Officer" very seriously.  He's on a mission to make sure everyone who walks through the doors gets their spirits lifted and a smile put on their faces.  He makes sure everyone feels welcome by greeting them at the door.  If needed, he is happy to demonstrate stretches on the floor, show you how to relax while getting a massage, and even give you a little smooch on the hand during your adjustment to let you know you're in good hands and will be feeling better soon. Ziggy has also been know to go all out and crawl into patients arms for a cuddle or show off his belly for a scratch.  Whatever it takes, Ziggy is up for the challenge.

When Ziggy isn't boosting morale at FSW, he enjoys playing at the dog park, chasing squirrels out of the garden, and snuggling with his mom and dad.
