Dr. Adana’s Journey

Dr. Adana started her chiropractic journey by accepting a front desk job at a chiropractic office in Los Angeles. At the time she thought it would be a good part time job to take on while attending Loyola Marymount University (Go Lions!). Little did she know that this job would change her entire career path. Although chiropractic is awesome all on its own, that isn’t why Adana became Dr. Adana. 

Throughout her teenage years, Dr. Adana suffered from migraine headaches. Her solution for many years was to pop tylenol or advil in plentiful doses. She had no idea that her nervous system was a mess and that chiropractic adjustments could correct the issue. I think you know where this is heading. 

As a perk at her new job she started getting adjusted. It wasn’t long before she realized that she wasn’t experiencing regular migraines. That’s when she was hooked! She accepted a job, but ended up getting so much more than a paycheck. She had her health transformed. Shortly thereafter she decided that becoming a chiropractor was her calling! 


Dr. Chris’s Journey

Dr. Chris experienced one health challenge after another growing up. It started with recurrent ear infections. Then it was a weakened immune system. Followed by acne. Finally capped off by digestive issues. 

Around the age of 20 years old, he met a chiropractor at a work event. He didn’t know anything about chiropractic at the time, but something that was communicated during that conversation gave him hope that his health could be improved. So Dr. Chris took action and became a chiropractic patient. 

The first thing that he noticed was that after being adjusted, his digestion would improve. It should be noted that no other changes were being made at the time. He was still eating junk food and not hydrating enough. Yet, positive changes were taking place. As he saw continued improvements to his health, he wanted to learn more about this amazing profession. 

You already know the punchline to this story, but eventually 20 something year old Chris decided that he would change his major, transfer schools and become Dr. Chris.
