 Daven L. Spencer, D.C.

Dr. Daven Spencer graduated from Los Angeles College of Chiropractic in 1993.  He has 17+ yrs experience in practice as a chiropractor who actually uses muscle work everyday, whether it be in the form of myofascial release, trigger point therapy, active release, passive release, pnf stretching, or exercise routines.  He is a firm believer in treating both sides of the musculo-skeletal system (the muscle side and the joint side) and is not afraid to spend the time it takes to do so.  He has seen many successes as a result.  He has spent years developing and honing his technique and always wants to learn more.  He has been an instructor here at NEIWH for several years.  He is a talented educator whether it be in his practice with his patients or in the classroom in seminars and workshops.  He has the ability to bring the complicated functions of the body down to layman's terms.  The body is a very individual entity and must be treated as such.  Which also means that as a provider of therapy, one MUST individualize his/her therapy to those needs and get out of the rut of one's own routine.  His teaching style reflects this fact as a core understanding and expects students to look outside the box of their routine and find the THERAPIST and HEALER within.
