About the Doctors
The doctors at Lander Chiropractic are passionate about helping patients achieve their personal health goals and becoming the healthiest version of themselves. Most people don’t realize that they do not have to live with pain and that there are side effect free options for health care.
Dr. James Lander, Chiropractor
James Lander has utilized his longtime experience as a professional marathon runner to enhance his knowledge and performance as a practitioner of the science of chiropractic. As someone who knows and appreciates the intricate workings of the human anatomy in motion, he views all of his patients, no matter what their physical ability or individual health status, as athletes. As he says, “How we move is critical to our ultimate longevity and quality of life.”
He secured both his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Exercise Physiology from West Virginia University where he also gained recognition as an NCAA Division One cross country and track athlete. After continuing his professional running career, he earned his Doctor of Chiropractic from Southern California University of Health Sciences, graduating Magna Cum Laude and receiving the prestigious President’s Award, honoring achievement above and beyond normal student activity plus recognition for future success and leadership in the field of chiropractic.
Dr. Lander is dedicated to treating patients of all ages and levels of fitness. With an office in Brea, located in proximity to the Snail’s Pace Running Shop, Lander Chiropractic has become a natural business of interest for runners to receive quality, running-specific, treatment provided by someone uniquely qualified in this area. However, all patients who seek care from this practice can be assured of an assessment to uncover the underlying source of each ache, pain, injury or setback – then a thorough treatment to restore one’s health and reduce the incidence of re-injury.
Fun Fact: Dr. James enjoys running and spending time with his chickens, ‘the Spice Chicks’. Check out his videos: ApocaLander
Dr. Anstasia Lander, Chiropractor
When Anastasia Lander started her professional life, it was in the financial world on Wall Street in New York City. As with anything she set her mind to, she perfected her craft and was able to retire at a time in life when others are just realizing their potential. She was looking for a new calling when 9/11 impacted the whole world. With friends and associates lost in the tragedy of the World Trade Center, she decided to devote her life to one of healing and focused on the field of chiropractic.
Earning her Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Southern California University of Health Sciences, an executive of the institution noted, “Anastasia has the unique ability of balancing her passion for the science with the compassion required to interact effectively with patients. She not only is a qualified practitioner but is a natural role model for chiropractic, assisting individuals, who may have once been reluctant to try it, to become comfortable and ultimately won over with chiropractic for relieving their aches and ailments.”
In addition to her interests, Dr. Anastasia continues to advance her education in prenatal and pediatric chiropractic studies. It is her desire to educate and assist families to avoid illness and injury for their children by introducing chiropractic to younger patients as a preventative tool.
Fun Fact: When Dr. Anastasia isn’t working on patients or studying, she enjoys spending time with her grandson, Logan.
Dr. Hailey Danko, Chiropractor
Dr. Hailey Danko grew up in Fullerton; and about 10 years ago, began visiting Lander Chiropractic as a patient. Inspired by the power of chiropractic and the amazing healing properties it facilitates, she decided to pursue chiropractic as a career. Hailey attended Southern California University of Health Sciences and graduated in the fall of 2022 as valedictorian. From infants and kids to pregnancy and athletes, she enjoys the flexibility to treat a variety of patient populations. Hailey believes that people of any age can receive chiropractic care, allowing them to perform at optimal function and live their best life. She is excited to move from her role as patient to doctor and inspire others to take part in their own healing journey. Dr. Danko loves being able to help her patients get out of pain and establish a healthy, trusting relationship with them. She also empowers her patients’ ability to take an active part in their healing journey because their body is more powerful than they realize. Health is wealth!
Fun Fact: Dr. Hailey loves going to the beach and being outdoors!
Dr. Tyler Nagao, Chiropractor
Alooooha, my name is Tyler Nagao, if the intro didn’t already let you know that I’m originally from the island of Kauai, HI. During my spare time, I enjoy hanging out with my friends and family, cooking, and fishing. Before chiropractic school, I attended Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction, CO and graduated with a degree in Exercise Science. After graduating with my undergrad, I moved to Southern California, where I attended Southern California University of Health Sciences in pursuit of my Doctorate of Chiropractic. What inspired me to become a chiropractor is when I injured my lower back playing sports like soccer and jiu jitsu, and after my initial visit, I started to experience relief and noticed when I went back to playing sports, I was able to work harder without the fear of reinjuring myself. My love for chiropractic is to be able to treat the person as a whole, and not as a symptom. I want to be able to get them pain-free and be able to enjoy doing
what they love to do.
Fun Fact: Dr. Tyler has a pet pig back home in Kauai
