Ivan & Sabrina Sanchez D.C.
Dr. Ivan Sanchez and Dr. Sabrina Sanchez met in Chiropractic school and got married in May 2017. They enjoy spending their time outside fishing and exploring the South Bay. In 2013, both doctors traveled to Bolivia on a mission trip and adjusted kids at orphanages, the military men at the base, and hundreds of underprivileged men and women traveling from neighboring areas.
Ivan Sanchez and Dr. Sabrina Sanchez always strive to give their patients the best care possible. Dr. Ivan Sanchez & Dr. Sabrina Sanchez take a 'whole person' approach in chiropractic care which means looking for the underlying causes of disease, discomfort, and pain, as opposed to just treating the symptoms. Many seemingly unrelated symptoms often arise from imbalances in the spinal column so they treat the body as a whole rather than chase symptoms. Dr. Ivan Sanchez & Dr. Sabrina Sanchez will be able to determine the root of the pain and create a personalized chiropractic and wellness plan to suit each patient's individual needs.
Dr. Sanchez grew up in the South Bay. He was introduced into Chiropractic by an unfortunate neck injury in high school. After visiting a chiropractor he was cured and never experienced the problem again. As life went along he knew he wanted to get into the field of medicine and help heal people. Now through the power of chiropractic, he can touch other people's lives and broaden their horizons on what Chiropractic can offer them.
In Dr. Sanchez's free time he enjoys exercising, free diving, and spearfishing. He dives locally and is relaxed by the experience and beauty of freediving. His largest fish caught was a gulf grouper and it weighed over 115 pounds.
Dr. Sabrina Sanchez enjoys living a healthy lifestyle. Her dad is one of 15 children and her mom is one of 8 kids so she enjoys bringing the warmth of a huge family to the practice at Arc of Life Chiropractic.
Dr. Sabrina Sanchez enjoys running and staying healthy. She completed her first full marathon and is eager to start training for her next one. Dr. Sanchez specializes in the Webster Technique, which is a specific chiropractic analysis for pregnant women. Her passion is to help women in all aspects of health and help families reach their highest potential.
