Dr. C. Claude Basler

From a young age, Dr. Basler saw firsthand the positive effect chiropractic care has on one’s health and well being as his father and uncle are Chiropractors. Following in his families’ footsteps, Dr. Basler graduated Palmer College of Chiropractic in 2013.

Speaking to Dr. Basler’s work ethic are his past accomplishments of receiving a full ride scholarship to play football and fulfill his undergraduate degree. There, his leadership capabilities were confirmed as he was awarded captain and led his team to a championship bowl game. Further, his post bachelor’s education was busy as Dr. Basler filled his time with additional practicums, work study and clubs to further his experience and knowledge of the field. Monumenting his education at Palmer College was a rare opportunity he was fortunate to be selected  to complete his final clinical rotation at Koca Chiropractic Clinic located in Omaha, Nebraska. Under the prominent chiropractic leader, Dr. Lyle Koca as well as Dr. Matthew Francoeur and Dr. Michael Price, Dr. Basler immensely expanded his understanding.

Dr. Basler married his high school sweetheart, Alisha in 2012 and has since welcomed four beautiful children into the family.  Vivienne 2014, Crue 2016, CC 2017, Vietta 2020 and Mac 2021. Dr. Basler and Alisha are both from Michigan and moved to Montana in 2013 after a summer road trip for which they fell in love with the Flathead Valley. Alisha and the children are frequent visitors to the office and look forward to meeting you as we help to make this the Healthiest place in Montana to LIVE!

Dr. Marissa Leong

Dr. Leong was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri and grew up in a household that encouraged her to pursue anything she put her mind to. After attending an all-girls Catholic high school and going through a personal health journey she found a passion for women’s health. This passion led Dr. Leong to attend Truman State University and study Health Science focusing on women’s health topics and disease prevention. Dr. Leong spent much of her time volunteering at the local nursing home and YMCA as well as conducting free classes at the Juvenile Detention Center and Addiction Treatment Center. While working hard to prevent illnesses and disease in undergrad, Dr. Leong, with the help of her cousin who is a chiropractor, found the principles of Chiropractic aligned with her own. Upon graduating from Truman State University in 2019, she immediately enrolled at Logan College of Chiropractic.

During her time at Logan, Dr. Leong had the honor of being a Logan Gonstead Intern under the direction of Dr. Jeff Lawlor. Throughout her time at Logan, Dr. Leong applied her passion for women and infants’ health by studying and applying special techniques to young women, pregnant women, and infants. While attending Chiropractic school her love of giving back to the community only grew and volunteered at her family parish’s youth group.

Dr. Leong is excited to be able to care for those in the Flathead Valley community by helping individuals live out their greatest potential. From the moment she first arrived to Montana she fell in love with the people here and strives to make this the healthiest place in Montana to LIVE!

The Basler Chiropractic Team

Jan is a proud fourth generation Flathead native.  She has spent over 18 years in a Chiropractic office and has loved every opportunity to help our community!  “Granni” has seven grandchildren, you might even have an opportunity to see 3 of them in the office, after their adjustment of course.  Jan is an inspiration to this office.  You will usually find her in the billing office or occasionally out playing with the kids or visiting with practice members.  Every day she is able to see the rewards of Chiropractic care.  She loves the family atmosphere at Basler Family Chiropractic and strives to help create positive memories for our practice members that come through our Chiropractic office.

Cassy Bowers

Cassy was born and raised in Tacoma Washington and relocated to the Flathead Valley in the summer of 2001. She is married to her best friend, Kyle, and together they have 4 boys; Aaron, Ethan, Camden, and Elias. They welcomed their first grandbaby, Daisy, in September of 2020. Cassy was introduced to Basler Chiropractic in 2014 when her husband injured himself at work and started seeking care to help with the pain he was experiencing in his lower back. She came reluctantly but after seeing the relief her husband was having from chiropractic, she decided to also receive care to help with migraine headaches; she’s been migraine free ever since. She was beyond ecstatic to join the Basler office family in the winter of 2021.  Her favorite thing about the office is the patient care that is given by everyone in the office, from the education the doctors give to each patient to the family like atmosphere that has been created. She is passionate about giving her best patient care to everyone who walks through the doors. When she is not at the office you can find her snuggled up at home during the winter months, though she did try snowshoeing once and is willing to try it again. During the spring, summer and fall you will find her exploring the trails in the mountains and hills or on the lakes and rivers kayaking.  

Michele Senne

My name is Michele Senner, I am a Montana native, born in Missoula.  I started school in Whitefish when I was 7 and graduated from Whitefish High School. I have lived in the valley my whole life and am married with 2 daughters and a granddaughter. I did not have a lot of experience with Chiropractors other than after a car accident and was treated for a neck injury. My daughter started seeing Dr. Basler and loved it here. When the opportunity arose to join the chiropractic world, I jumped at the opportunity. I love my Basler family and truly believe in the Gonstead technique and would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for help with their spinal care!!!  I know my life has changed because of it and yours can too!

Hannah Meehan

Hannah is a proud Montana native, born and raised in Kalispell. Hannah is married to her best friend, Lincoln, and they welcomed a baby girl named Alice in 2019. When she’s not in the office, she enjoys gardening, reading, hiking, and spending time with her family and friends. Hannah is also very passionate about music. She is a classical violinist of over 15 years, and has been awarded by the state for her solo work. Hannah has always been interested in Chiropractoric, and would accompany her dad to his chiropractor appointments growing up. Her interests peaked when she visited the Gonstead Cottages in Mount Horeb, Wisconsin, home of the Gonstead Method. Hannah could not be happier that her introduction into Chiropractoric has been with Dr. Basler, and the rest of her awesome office family!

Misty Osler

Misty is a Montana Native and has lived in the Flathead Valley over 20 years. She is married to her high school sweetheart and together they have 3 children, a daughter and two sons. Misty enjoys reading books, she loves good mystery or suspense stories; her favorite author is Janet Evanovich. When she doesn’t have a book in her hand you will find her out in the woods with her husband and their dogs, Delilah and Forrest, exploring. Misty was introduced to chiropractic care at the age of 20 due to a car collision; she then found the benefits of chiropractic care when she started having children and took them due to ear aches. A few of her favorite things about the office is the patient care that she gets to provide to each individual that comes to the office and her family of co-workers.

I was nervous about having someone mess with my back/nerve system. However after bringing my child to Basler's, the professional and attention to care my child received and I as the parent, I made an appointment for myself. Their attention to detail, atmosphere, respect and professionalism is outstanding and above others. I would highly recommend Basler Family Chiropractor to anyone.

Claude is Awesome! Super professional but also has helped me tremendously to better understand my spine and how the healing process works so that I can really truly have faith in what we are doing.

Brendan L.

Dr. Basler is the absolute best chiropractor I have ever been to. I've had seizures for 25 yrs. and since working with Dr. B., I haven't had one in 9 months. His business acumen is excellent. He has a great facility, and a wonderful staff.
