I'm proud to be serving the Carpinteria community as we resiliently endure the pandemic. We're almost there! I offer a low force approach to chiropractic using instrument-based adjustments, soft tissue manipulation, and low-level laser therapy to decrease pain, increase function, and improve biomechanics. My passion is keeping my patients healthy enough that they can go out and participate in those of their own. I look forward to working with you to optimize your health and have you greeting each sunrise prepared to charge the day.

Dr. Kevin is an alumnus of Life Chiropractic College West, where he graduated summa cum laude as class valedictorian along with receiving clinical honors and being recognized for his community service. During his time in school, he also volunteered as team chiropractor to the Eastbay Stompers FC, who advanced to the national semifinals of the United Premier Soccer League in 2017. Prior to graduating in the spring of 2018, Dr. Kevin received extracurricular certification in multiple techniques including Activator and Active Release Technique; additional training which has since proved invaluable.
On June 25th, 2018 Dr. Kevin was commuting home from his job as an associate doctor using a skateboard when he was struck by a car in a crosswalk. The impact shattered his left shoulder, which while severe left him grateful to be alive. The damage ultimately required two separate joint replacement procedures on his left shoulder and a year of intensive PT, during which he gained a new perspective on pain as well as what can be accomplished through diligence in self-care along with positive thinking. Long hours of rehabilitation and a stint running an on-site preventative medicine clinic provided Dr. Kevin the time to reinvent his approach to patient care to adapt to the physical limitations imposed upon him by his structural damage.
Dr. Kevin now approaches patient care using low force instrument-based adjusting, soft tissue manipulation, and physical therapy modalities including low level laser therapy. While his style of treatment may have changed, his compassion, knowledge, attention to detail, and spirit remain unbroken. Dr. Kevin looks forward to helping the health of the Carpinteria community thrive.
