During his undergraduate studies in health sciences, Dr. David Carry, owner of Goodlife Chiropractic, worked at a hospital and noticed that the health care system was designed primarily to treat the sick but did little to teach people how to stay healthy. This inspired him to choose chiropractic, a medicine with a proactive approach to health. “Both of my parents worked in health care,” he says, “so it came naturally for me to want to be in a profession where I help others live healthier.” Dr. Dave enjoys teaching his patients the most effective and natural methods of pain relief, spinal corrections and general healthcare. He and his staff use the latest technologies combined with proven chiropractic care to get to the very root of any neuro, muscular or skeletal problems. Dr. Dave received his doctor of chiropractic degree from the Southern California University of Health Sciences.
