Drs. Bret and Lindsey Bartholomew

Drs. Bret and Lindsey Bartholomew are Chiropractors who focus on restoring the body to health naturally, by creating balance in the spine and nervous system. We do this through specific chiropractic adjustments, proper diet, exercise and a healthy mental attitude. By focusing on the neuro-structural correction of the spine, they see beyond secondary conditions (symptoms) to discover the primary condition creating your issues. Much like a foundation of a house, if you are not structurally sound, and you have “cracks” in your foundation, your secondary conditions will continue to occur until you fully address the problem.

Dr. Lindsey Bartholomew received her Doctorate of Chiropractic degree from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA in October 2007. Prior to Palmer College, Dr. Bartholomew attended Baker College in Michigan, where she received her B.A. in Business Administration. Following graduation from Palmer College, Dr. Bartholomew continues post-education work in family wellness, pediatrics and women’s health. She is Webster Certified and is currently working towards her Pediatric Certification through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA).

Darcie at Platinum Chiropractic


As a native Iowan, I had the experience of growing up in the small community of Iowa Falls. When my husband and I were looking for a place to raise our boys Zearing caught our eye. We have raised 3 young men and a Frisbee obsessed dog in the small town. These days you can find me working on our never ending house remodel, sitting in the bleachers for school events, or spending time with our extended family around the state.
