Dr. Enrique Santana is a Southern California native and the Associate Doctor in the Premiere Clinic. He completed his undergraduate studies and received a bachelor’s degree (BS) in Human Biology from Cleveland Chiropractic College Los Angeles (CCCLA). He then completed the graduate program and received a Doctorate in Chiropractic. Dr. Santana continued to study at the Spine Research Institute of San Diego (SRISD) in Coronado, CA. He graduated with an Advanced Certificate specializing in the etiology and case management of Whiplash and Brain Injury Traumatology.
Dr. Santana’s mission is to provide the most effective quality Chiropractic adjustment to every patient that walks through his door regardless of age or condition. His youngest patient has been a 6 day old baby, and his oldest was a 96 year old man. He is also skilled in safely providing pain relieving Chiropractic adjustments to expecting mothers and helping them stay pain free throughout their pregnancy. Dr. Santana’s focus is to address the root causes of neurological, muscular and/or skeletal issues involving the skeleton and nervous system. Chiropractic addresses these issues by restoring proper movement to the joints and nerve flow to the body, allowing the body’s innate intelligence to heal itself, similar to how the body heals itself of cuts, bruises and disease.
The training Dr. Santana received focuses on the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of neuromuscular skeletal disorders such as headaches, arthritis, stenosis, herniated/slipped discs, nerve pain, sciatica, sprain/strains, sports injuries, slip/falls and auto injuries.
Dr. Santana has repeatedly been invited as team doctor for local high school sports teams. He continues to serve a wide array of physically active professionals who are aware of the performance enhancing benefits of Chiropractic, including nurses, desk workers, salon workers, MMA fighters, labor workers, union workers, as well as a significant number of Law Enforcement personnel.
Setting an example for his patients, Dr. Santana believes in clean eating and an active lifestyle as a means to living a happy and healthy life. His nutritional advice is always “If it has a wrapper or commercial, don’t eat it!” He enjoys swimming, snowboarding, hiking with his dogs and camping. He has also been an active church member, volunteering his time and musician skills to support youth and adult community groups, weekly masses and juvenile detention centers.
Dr. Santana plans to continue providing Chiropractic care to the community for the rest of his life. His goal is to exceed the expectations of his patients, providing an alternative to drugs and surgery.
