Dr. Nicolas Campos, D.C. was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. An avid sports fan, he spent his youth playing sports and learning about physical fitness.
In 1975 his mother visited a chiropractor for the first time to be treated for a neck injury. At these visits she learned about the powerful healing abilities of the
human body and the capacity of chiropractic to facilitate this healing.
Wanting her entire family to receive the health benefits of chiropractic, Mrs. Campos brought Nicolas and his brother and sister along on subsequent visits. He was seven years old when he received his first chiropractic adjustment.
Nicolas Campos was educated at U.C. Berkeley and received his degree in Molecular and Cell Biology in 1994. His emphasis of study was in the rapidly growing field of Immunology.
To help pay his way through college, Nicolas taught workshops in organic chemistry and biochemistry to U.C. Berkeley students through the prestigious Scholar’s Program. It was his job to teach these subjects to minority students underrepresented in the health sciences.
Upon graduating, he moved to Southern California to pursue a doctorate degree in chiropractic. He felt that entering this field would be the perfect way to combine his love of sports with his insatiable interest in human health.
At Cleveland Chiropractic College of Los Angeles, Nicolas studied the academics of chiropractic health care as well as the fascinating philosophy behind the practice. He also spent numerous hours practicing the art of chiropractic adjusting, clocking over one hundred hours of extra-curricular seminar time learning chiropractic technique. Recognizing the value of a broad chiropractic education, he extensively studied over ten adjusting techniques including Gonstead, Diversified, Cranio-Sacral, Activator, Network, NET, SOT, Cox, and Thompson Technique.
In addition to his chiropractic studies, Nicolas pursued his love of sports by studying sports injury and rehabilitation protocols and procedures. During his clinic rounds, he was one of only five students to be trained in the Chiropractic Rehabilitation Program.

This paradigm for total health maintains that optimal health and wellness can be obtained through the nurturing of six key areas. These areas are diet/nutrition, physical fitness/exercise, rest/recuperation, mind/mental health, toxin avoidance and body work. By addressing these six key areas, each individual can attain his or her highest level of well being as well as prevent chronic, degenerative and life threatening illnesses.
