EDUCATION AND EXPERIENCE
Dr. Paul Quarneri’s earliest experience with chiropractic care was as a patient. After one visit with the right chiropractor, his old football injury never bothered him again. He was working as a physical therapist at the time, learning the value of personalized care, and the benefits of working one-on-one with patients during recovery. He studied physical education at UC Berkeley, and after his stunning recovery, he headed to Life Chiropractic College West in Hayward, California to become a chiropractor. He and a group of colleagues took postdoctoral neurology courses on the weekend, supplementing their studies with classes on the complex connections between the brain and the body. He graduated Magna Cum Laude in 1996, and his supplementary work earned him a certification as a chiropractic neurologist shortly after. Today, he is a diplomate for the American Chiropractic Neurology Board, and a member of both the California and American Chiropractic Association.
