Dr. Laura Kuan, D.C. attended UC Santa Barbara where she graduated pre-med with a bachelor’s degree in Bio-psychology. While considering her future in medicine, she realized that all-too-often health issues are treated using prescription drugs rather that addressing the root cause. Dr. Kuan believes that health care should be preventative in nature, not focused on the treatment of symptoms. She sought a different way to treat. Dr. Kuan soon discovered chiropractic and was stirred by its founding principle – that the human body is a highly evolved, self-healing organism and if injuries are given proper care, the body can recover on its own. Chiropractic’s less invasive approach to health care was the inspiration that began Dr. Kuan’s chiropractic career.
Dr. Kuan graduated Magna Cum Laude from Parker University in Dallas, Texas where she received her Doctorate in Chiropractic. At Parker, Dr. Kuan completed an internship at the VA hospital in Dallas providing chiropractic care to veterans. School was also where she was introduced to myofascial work and experienced its drastic ability to reduce the time between injury and recovery for patients. Being an active individual herself, she understood the need for high quality treatment in order to recover fast and return to activity sooner. Dr. Kuan’s practice focuses on accident and sports related injuries with an emphasis on home care so patients can be in charge of their own health.
Being a San Francisco Bay Area native, Dr. Kuan is thrilled to be in the bay where there are actual mountains to go hiking! She loves exploring new trails, as well as, powerlifting, volleyball, traveling, coffee shops and photography.
