Dr. Matthew R. Eaton BS, DC

My name is Matthew R. Eaton BS, DC and I was born in Valparaiso, Indiana. My family is from a small town south of LaPorte called Union Mills, Indiana. When I was 13 years old I moved out to the Pacific Northwest with my father and there I graduated from Oregon City High School in 1993. I met my wife Cathy that same year and we later married in 1995.

In 1998, I started my undergraduate studies at Life University in Marietta, Georgia and in 2000 I was accepted into the College of Chiropractic at Life University. I graduated in December of 2003 with my Doctorate in Chiropractic. Following college I practiced in South Bend, Indiana for three and a half years as an associate.

In March 2007 I opened Eaton Chiropractic Inc. in Michigan City, Indiana.

I have been a licensed Chiropractor in Indiana since January of 2004 and in August of 2006 I received a license to practice in the state of Ohio. I am also a member in good standing with the American Chiropractic Association and Life University Alumni Association. I continue to further my education by attending classes and seminars in patient care.

In my spare time I spend it with my wife and two wonderful boys usually fishing or exploring the great outdoors. I also coach baseball and football during the summer and fall.

I believe with all my heart in the principles of chiropractic- ' the power that made the body can heal the body...B.J. Palmer'

I invite you and your family to join our family here at Eaton Chiropractic and start living a healthier lifestyle pain free and experience what so many others already have.

Dr. Paige DeThorne BS, DC

My name is Paige DeThorne and I am from Pleasant Prairie, WI. I grew up playing competitive soccer, which allowed me to play in tournaments all over the country. I was also able to play for my high school team, which led to an opportunity to play soccer on a collegiate level after graduating from Tremper High School in 2012.

I went on to play at Eastern Illinois University before being medically disqualified my sophomore year. Over my four and a half years at EIU, I met my fiancé, Steve, and we are set to be married in July 2021. I graduated from EIU in December of 2016 with my Bachelor of Science in biology. I am a recent graduate from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA where I got my Doctorate of Chiropractic in June 2020. I am so excited to start working in the Michigan City community and help people reach their health and wellness goals!

In my off time, I enjoy reading any good thriller book, going on walks with my fiancé and dog, Cali, and re-watching The Office for the tenth time. I am looking forward to experiencing the summer in Michigan City and being so close to the lake.

Cathy - Office Manager/Insurance Representative

I am the office manager of Eaton Chiropractic. Dr. Eaton and I opened the doors to Eaton Chiropractic in March of 2007. It has been a pleasure to work with the staff of Eaton Chiropractic everyday and to see the changes we are making in the lives of our patients. I have worked in the chiropractic field for over 16 years and have witnessed over and over again the positive life changes that happen to a chiropractic patient. When someone who can barely walk into the office due to excessive pain levels can walk out after completing their treatment plan with a smile on their face saying 'I'm going golfing,' it is more than gratifying to say the least. I have witnessed these changes in all ages of chiropractic patients from newborn babies to the elderly. I believe chiropractic is not only a form of pain relief but also an important part of a healthy lifestyle. I am excited to be located in Michigan City and to be a part of the healthcare industry in this community. We are determined to help each and every one of our patients reach their fullest potential and live a life free from pain.

Kaitlin E - Chiropractic Assistant

I was born and raised in Michigan City and graduated from MCHS in 2016. I attended IUSB for a degree in Art education for 2.5 years before deciding that wasn't the path I was meant to be taking in life. I'm currently living with my boyfriend Dakota and our seven fur-babies. Yes, furry kids! Five cats and two dogs. After deciding to explore my options in the beginning of 2019, I stumbled upon a listing for a job at Eaton Chiropractic. Applying for this job has been one of the best decisions I've made. I have learned so much since starting my career here and can not wait to continue to grow and flourish on this new path I decided to head down!

Ryan J. - Chiropractic Assistant

My name is Ryan and I am the Chiropractic Assistant in our therapy/rehabilitation program. I was born and raised in Michigan City, IN where I also attended Michigan City High School. During that time I competed in both football and track and field, where I received a number of accomplishments throughout the years.

In 2014, my track and field career led me to become a collegiate athlete at Bethel University, where I also became a three-time All American. In 2018 I earned my Bachelors degree in Kinesiology. Following college, I became a certified personal trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM).

In my spare time I love being around my family, sharing moments and past memories. I also enjoy working out and keeping my body healthy and strong. This led me to become a competitive body builder in the Men's Physique Division.

I strongly value hard work, love dedication and sacrifice. My top five strengths are discipline, belief, achiever, competitiveness and consistency.

Come visit me at Eaton Chiropractic and we can discuss how our rehabilitation program can help you live a healthy and functional life!

Cate - Chiropractic Assistant

Hi new friends! I'm Cate the resident goofball! I have been here since March of 2019 and I love this office! The attention to care is unparalleled. I have been in chiropractic care for a few years and really think working with Dr. Eaton and Dr. Erika offers a well rounded approach to a patient's general wellness. I live in Chesterton with my husband Jay and cat Sage. I'm a family girl at heart and spend at least one day a week at my parents house! I can usually offer some trivial piece of nonsensical knowledge or even some stretches or ideas of creating the best care. I look forward to being a part of your care here at Eaton Chiropractic!

Ashley B. - Chiropractic Assistant

I grew up in Michigan City and graduated in 2015. I attended Purdue for early childhood education for one year and quickly realized that wasn't for me. So I transferred and am now studying nursing with a minor in psychology. My heart has always been to help others, which is why working at Eaton Chiropractic is so rewarding. We see patients come in who can barely walk and leave our doors jumping up and down! At Eaton, it's so much more than just a 'doctors office'. Everyone is so welcoming, we build relationships with patients and do everything we can to get them feeling better. I am so grateful to be here and be part of the Eaton Chiropractic's team! Stop in, you just might hear me singing away at the front desk!

Jessica F - Chiropractic Assistant

My name is Jessica. I am 25 years old and from Three Oaks, MI. I graduated from River Valley in 2013. Since then, I've done quite a bit of bouncing around and I am so excited to have landed at Eaton Chiropractic! Outside of work you could catch me going on adventures with my dog Spartacus, playing softball, golfing or finding a live music show!

Working at Eaton has added so much quality to my life and motivated me to get my license for massage therapy! I love being in a position to really be able to help people and the connections that come with the gig make every day important.
