Dr. Gabriel Altman received his Doctorate of Chiropractic degree from the Palmer College of Chiropractic – Florida, home to the largest chiropractic research program in the world. After graduation, he developed his niche of treating patients with chronic musculoskeletal pain, pediatric sports injuries, infants with delayed motor development and vertigo-type disorders. Dr. Altman had noticed that combining the latest treatment methods and being informed of what the latest research shows has allowed him to help treat these patients quicker and more efficiently. Dr. Altman believes that every patient requires an individualized, tailored treatment plan. He uses sophisticated movement screens and neurological testing to help assess and evaluate injury patterns, which can be the result of daily habits such as posture, overuse of phone/computer screens or sub optimal motor control habits. His assessment and treatments include discussion of all previous histories, treatment approaches, bloodwork and imaging to make sure that a global diagnosis is established. He is a Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization Exercise Therapist and he is certified in Active Release Techniques, Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) and Strongfirst Level I Kettlebell training. He has taught seminars nationwide teaching over clinicians and students how to identify key movement errors and neurological errors in patients with chronic pain. Dr. Altman loves the challenge of learning new approaches or talents. His favorite activities include learning piano, singing lessons and playing golf. The ability of the mind and body to learn new patterns is the key of life.
    A Doctor of Pharmacy, Dr. Adra started his career working in both community and hospital settings. Through this practice, he became aware of the limitations of traditional western medicine in the treatment of chronic musculoskeletal pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, migraine and tension headaches, sciatica and other disorders. Along with his pharmacy degree, Dr. Adra earned a Doctorate of Chiropractic as well as a Master’s degree in Chinese Herbal Medicine and Acupuncture, both from the Southern California University of Health Sciences. A board-certified Doctor of Chiropractic and Licensed Acupuncturist in the state of California, Dr. Adra has taught post-graduates at the National University of Health Sciences in Chicago and the Southern California University of Health Sciences. He often is asked to speak on health care to the sports community as well as at spinal conferences. In addition, Dr. Adra holds certifications from The McKenzie Institute® in Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy® as well as in the Active Release Technique soft tissue management system. Dr. Adra also developed a unique system of injury classification and treatment protocols, that when applied by the Kinetix365 team of doctors, leads to startling results in patient care reducing both intensity and frequency of symptoms as well as number of visits needed for recovery. His favorite quote is “don’t think of a monkey!” a riddle that Zen monks meditate on to expose the fallacies of the logical mind and reemphasize the need to develop intuition through personal experience. Needless to say of course that he has a picture of a very charming young monkey in his main treatment room to remind him of that.
