    Dr. Nick Santos, from Chicago, IL, graduated from North Central College with a BS in Exercise Science. He received his Doctorate in Chiropractic from National University of Health Sciences. He is skilled at treating a variety of musculoskeletal disorders including back and neck pain, as well as conditions of the extremities (shoulder, knee, ankle etc.).

    Dr. Santos utilizes many different treatment techniques including chiropractic adjustments, soft tissue mobilization, corrective exercises and rehabilitation. He is currently pursuing credentials in the McKenzie Method of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (MDT).

This therapy gives patients the ability to understand the causes of their discomfort and empowers them to be in control of their own symptom management.
    Dr. Santos was on the receiving end of chiropractic care while he was a high school and collegiate wrestler. As a life-long athlete, he learned how beneficial chiropractic care can be for treating injuries and preventing them too. He maintains an active lifestyle by participating in CrossFit workouts and enjoying outdoor activities such as hiking and fishing.

Prior moving to the Bay Area 3 years ago, she worked part-time in a sports clinic and a home health agency.
     
    Being a foreign graduate, she did another internship upon arriving in the Bay Area for 6 months in an outpatient facility.
