Dr. Courtney is the only Osteopractor in the Southern California area. An Osteopractor earns a post-doctorate diploma by passing certifications in Spinal Manipulation Therapy and Dry Needling, in addition to training in IASTM, myofascial decompression (cupping), body tempering, extremity manipulation, and differential diagnosis. This allows us to safely rule out red flags and help yield a fast recovery.
