A Word from Dr. Jordan Martin, DC
"I would like to share a bit about myself and why I am a doctor of Chiropractic. My name is Dr. Jordan Martin, and I was born and raised right here in Laguna Beach. I studied psychology at the University of Santa Cruz and then graduated at the top of my class with my Doctorate in Chiropractic medicine from Palmer West Chiropractic College in September 2015. I currently reside in South Laguna with my wife, son, and daughter. Outside of chiropractic my passions include; freediving, surfing, fishing, hiking, volleyball, and spending time with my family.
I was inspired to become a chiropractor at the young age of 16 years old. Up until this time, I was sure I wanted to be a Marine Biologist due to my passion for the ocean and marine life; however, life took an unexpected turn when I became a patient at Health in Balance. Always being involved in sports, I had my fair share of injuries. One recurring injury of mine was sprained ankles. Prior to being treated by Dr. Gary Arthur, I would always treat my ankle sprains with conventional western medicine, which consisted of wearing a boot and taking 4-8 weeks off my activities. This all changed one day when Dr. Gary witnessed me sprain my ankle as I was playing volleyball. I immediately received chiropractic care right here at Health in Balance, and I discovered that I not only didn’t have to wear a boot again but was back playing in a week and a half. This blew my mind and hence sparked my interested in chiropractic care. Throughout my remaining high school years, I became a consistent patient at Health in Balance, successfully treating lower back pain and relieving the body’s stressors to allow my body to heal itself. To this day I have never had another ankle sprain.
I am grateful to have chosen the path as a chiropractor because nothing compares to the reward of helping people get well and educating them on their body and overall health. I strive to help my patients understand why they area in pain, how to alleviate it, and how to let their body function at its peak performance. The human body is an incredible machine which is built to heal itself if given the opportunity to do so.
As a doctor of chiropractic, I promise to come alongside my patients and help them achieve their goals to a better quality of life. I love helping patients transform their lives and return to their passions. It’s a joy I would not trade for anything. I look forward to helping and assisting you on this journey of healing."
