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.
