“My interest in helping people overcome physical challenges drew me to chiropractic,” says Dr. Twombly. “Since I was very young, I had fascination with the mind-body relationship. I studied martial arts, yoga, meditation and hypnosis. Chiropractic allows me a chance to teach and use these disciplines.”
Dr. Twombly received his undergraduate degree from UC Santa Barbara; did graduate studies at Humbolt, The Monterey Institute of Foreign Studies; and graduated from the Pasadena College of Chiropractic.
“I have a knack for treating headaches, neck and low back problems,” says Dr. Twombly. “I also have great success treating insomnia as well as chronic respiratory and digestive problems.”
In his spare time, Dr. Twombly can be found spending time with his daughters or grandson. He enjoys hiking and body surfing and has authored a novel which has just been published.
Dr. Erickson completed his undergraduate degree at UC San Diego, then went on to graduate from Southern California University of Health Sciences, Los Angeles College of Chiropractic with Honors. He is also certified in Active Release Technique.
“I am most known for diagnosing and correcting especially complicated functional problems–issues where various other treatments have failed,” says Dr. Erickson. “Most notably with low back, shoulder and knee cases where surgery appears to be the only solution. I feel it is my calling to keep as many patients away from unnecessary drugs and surgery as possible.”
“My functional biomechanics approach is great for athletes. Conditions suffered during highly repetitive sports – like running, cycling and swimming – respond especially well to this approach,’ says Dr. Erickson. “Examples include back pain, rotator cuff problems, knee pain, plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendon issues.”
Dr. Erickson is passionate about guiding patients towards higher levels of health, happiness and prosperity. He takes great pride in helping patients lead a life free of unnecessary drugs and surgery.
“I am most excited about the contribution that the chiropractic profession has made towards advancing wellness over the last 100+ years,” says Dr. Erickson.
Dr. Erickson’s favorite time spent way from the office is with his wife, Daley, and their two young children, Ethan and Avery – whether it’s visiting tide pools, camping with Cub Scouts, attending dance performances, craft projects or snuggling on the couch at home!
