Dr. Paul Krause, who strives to bring a well-rounded, holistic approach to his patients’ lives, leads better Back and Body. He has been in private practice on the eastside since 1995.  He attended Sherman College of Chiropractic in Spartanburg, South Carolina where he received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree in 1994.  He has been practicing at his current location in Juanita Beach since 2008.

Dr. Krause was in a head on collision and a rollover car accident before the age of 12.  He was unfortunately an unbelted passenger in both accidents.  In each of the accidents no one was severely injured and recovery seemed quick.  As a teenager, Dr. Krause suffered an injury to his lower back playing high school basketball.
Dr. Paul Krause
He was referred to the only chiropractor in the small town in eastern Washington where he grew up.  X-rays showed prior injury to Dr. Krause’s spine from the automobile accidents he was in as a child.  The chiropractor explained how the injuries from the automobile accidents never healed properly from not treating them and how that caused problems and spinal changes over the years.  Even though it appeared that everyone was okay from the automobile accidents, the chiropractor explained that the spinal changes were beginning to take its toll.  He outlined a treatment plan of chiropractic adjustments and after a series of adjustments the lower back pain settled down and Dr. Krause was back to his normal routine after a few weeks.  He has continued his chiropractic care being a regular chiropractic patient since the age of 17.

While in chiropractic school, Dr. Krause met and started treating with Dr. Vern Pierce.  Dr. Pierce had developed a chiropractic adjusting style that resonated with Dr. Krause and he started to use that technique while in student clinic with great success. He has crafted that technique over the past 22 years to obtain the good results he gets today.  He enjoys teaching his patients and the public about health and wellness.  Dr. Krause takes care of people of all ages with a variety of health conditions.
When not in the office, Dr. Krause enjoys working on cars, traveling and spending time with his family. He lives in Kirkland, WA.

Paul's Blog

By Paul Krause 08 Jul, 2017
There are plenty of things you can do everyday that will help you live a healthier, longer life. You don't have to hit the gym day in and day out and stick to some tasteless diet to feel good about yourself, you simply need to appreciate your body and give it what it needs. If you can allow yourself to follow the following tips you'll find yourself in better overall health, which means less pain, less excessive weight (if any to begin) and a better mood! Here's what you need to do!


Any exercise is better than no exercise! Instead of turning on the TV choose to go for a walk instead. When you get up in the morning or when you go to bed (or both) practice stretching and other small exercises. Getting your heart rate up encourages better health and happiness.

Get a good night's rest

Ideally you get seven to eight hours of sleep every night. This is good, but it needs to be restful sleep. Be sure to silence your cell phone, or keep it in a different room and do you best to sleep on your side or back, as stomach sleeping can cause strains in your neck or back.

Drink water

Water is essential to your wellbeing. For a rough estimate of how much water you should be drinking everyday cut your weight in half and that is the number of ounces that you need.

Eat right

We live in a fast food society, but these meals contain hardly any, if any, nutritional value. Home cooked meals that are rich with fruits and veggies will make you feel better and look better!

Avoid heavy lifting

If you find yourself having to carry something heavy be sure to ask for help. Heavy lifting is terrible for your back, especially when done incorrectly.

All about posture

Stand and sit up straight. Good posture will alleviate strains in your back.

Keeping weight off

If you are overweight the extra pounds put a lot of strain on your spine, back muscles and your organs. Dropping the pounds is a surefire way to increase your life expectancy.

Living a healthy life is good for you and your family. Sometimes though we can all use a little extra help. Seeing a chiropractor is a great way to get your health, and your back, straightened out. Better Back and Body is a Kirkland chiropractor's officethat has been helping patients with numerous issues for years and years. By offering a variety of naturopathic services we can assist with the resolution of many ailments.
