Dr. Derek specializes in restoring the body's function by working with the intricacies of the body’s systems. His focus is on the whole person, not just the problem itself.
Dr. Derek is well-versed in the rehabilitation of many different kinds of sports injuries. An athlete himself, he likes to joke that for him, these are mostly first-hand experiences. Over the last decade, his work with various professional and semi-professional teams and athletes, weekend warriors, as well as working professionals in Silicon Valley has allowed him to develop the skills necessary to tackle even the most complex injuries in very creative and effective ways, regardless of the patient's age or health background.
Dr. Derek often integrates exercise, soft tissue work, and extremity adjustments to enhance the outcome of chiropractic care. In addition to private practice, he is also the Lead Chiropractor at Lifelong Medical Care, a non-profit organization that provides health services to underserved communities throughout Alameda, Contra Costa, and Marin counties.
