It is a privilege to serve people who come to me seeking natural solutions to their health problems. From day one in chiropractic school, I have never looked back and recognized that it is a wonderful profession, one that fits my personality and skills very well. I am pleased to be your chiropractor in Santa Barbara, CA!
I attended Los Angeles College of Chiropractic because it had a reputation of being demanding academically, and while being faithful to the basic tenets of Chiropractic, it also provided us with an excellent medical education. Even while in school, I began the lifelong habit of attending numerous weekend seminars to gain additional training in natural healing techniques such as nutrition, rehabilitative exercises and many different types of chiropractic techniques. I graduated with honors and after a one–year associateship in Huntington Beach Calif, I moved up to Santa Barbara and began practicing here.
When our youngest son was three years of age he developed a lazy eye condition. My motivation to more fully understand the underlying nervous system dysfunction involved led me on a three–year post-graduate course of study in Neurology. I became board certified in Neurology as a chiropractic neurologist in Sept 2000. I am happy to report that combining some good pediatric ophthalmology care along with spinal adjustments, specific exercises, and dietary considerations enabled our son Gabe to avoid having to receive eye surgery.
My purpose in my family chiropractic practice is to help as many people as possible achieve a lifestyle that allows them to maximize their inner abilities and strengths, their full potential. This is accomplished by first assisting them with their pain issues and soon they notice they are able to sleep better, wake up more refreshed, their mood is better and they are able to more fully engage in life. Patients notice that they are able to diminish their need to take various pain medications and indeed many times they are able to get off their pain medications altogether. I have been told I have gifted hands and I recognize that it is my responsibility to assist and serve those that come to me seeking to improve their health with natural means of spinal adjustments, diet, nutrition, and exercise.
