Dr. Chris Garden – Chiropractor
I am extremely excited & honored to be part of the True Chiropractic team! My mother introduced my sisters and I to chiropractic at an early age. We would go to the chiropractor and get adjusted when we were not feeling well, we also went when we felt fine. My mom was very proactive in the health of our family, however in 10th grade, I experienced a serious spinal injury while playing ice hockey in Upstate New York. I was paralyzed from the waist down & the emergency room doctors said I might never walk again due to the nature of the injury. My Chiropractic lifestyle “miraculously,” allowed me to make a full recovery. I continued on to play sports through high school, competed in college ice hockey & rugby in chiropractic school.
From that moment my passion to pursue and participate in this great profession began.
I am a proud & accomplished graduate from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa with over 22 years of experience. I owned & operated a successful Family Health & Wellness Center in Wasilla, Alaska for 16 years. I spent 2 years in private practice in the city of Coronado. For the last 4 years I worked & managed multiple Pain Centers in the Inland Empire, during this time my conviction for my great profession has only strengthened. I realized that it was time for me to return to private practice to serve patients that weren’t seeking the failed treatment solutions of drugs, shots & surgery.
I am beyond excited to return to the San Diego area with my wife, Julie, and our boys, Eston and Vin. When I’m not working, I love cooking, golf, fishing & travel.
I am excited to help you live the healthy life you were meant to live & look forward to meeting & working with you & your family.
John Stowe – Chiropractic Intern
I first discovered the power of chiropractic when I was 17 years old. I was in high school, running cross country and playing tennis, and unfortunately dealing with daily headaches. On top of that, my anxiety made school and sports difficult, and I was struggling to calm what I thought was just overactive teen acne. Once under chiropractic care, I quickly realized that none of these things are “normal”. I was lucky to learn just how great I should feel everyday. Shortly after starting chiropractic care, I set on a path to become a Doctor of Chiropractic by studying biology undergraduate, then attending Life Chiropractic College West. Since then it has been my passion to help as many people as I can find their life’s true potential through the power of chiropractic care.
