Many people dismiss chiropractic as being something only for back pain, but chiropractic treatment can be used to treat a wide variety of physical issues, such as migraines and headaches, chronic pain, carpal tunnel, pain due to injury or muscle strain, and much more.

Chiropractor Setareh Derakhshan D.C.

Chiropractor Claremont Ca Setareh DerakhshanDr. Setareh Derakhshan graduated from Los Angeles College of Chiropractic in 2011. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree from Georgia State University. She is currently specializing in Neurology at the Carrick Institute of Graduate Studies and she will be board eligible in 2014.

As an intern she trained with the renowned chiropractic neurologist Dr Shad Groves. This training sharpened her diagnostic and treatment skills. In caring for patients Dr. Derakhshan uses a gentle yet very effective approach. Her belief is that if the diagnosis is correct, the treatments are much more effective.

Dr. Derakhshan has training in functional medicine. Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, by evaluating how the body is performing. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of healthcare to a more patient-centered approach, functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms.

Dr. Derakhshan spends time with her patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. In this way, she can supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.

Note from Dr. Derakhshan

This is a story about how my life changed. The year is 1998 and I am 12 years old. My mom is driving me home from basketball practice when out of nowhere my head and body are violently thrown forward. Soon, another bang.

This three-way car accident threw me onto such a roller coaster of pain and emotions.
My neck and my upper shoulders constantly ached. My mom took me to all the specialists and no one could figure out the exact cause of my suffering. I was a frequent patient at physical therapy, pain management, physiotherapy, orthopedic and chiropractic offices. I could no longer play basketball and I significantly withdrew from social activities.

If you’ve ever been in pain, you know that it changes your personality. Nothing helped long term. My family and I became frustrated about why it was so hard to find a place to offer me relief from the pain caused by my injuries.

This journey to find answers lead me to my life’s path as a chiropractor. It was not until 2010 when I started an internship with my mentor—a chiropractic neurologist—that I finally understood why I wasn’t healing. I learned that pain is multifaceted. It was my saving grace. Chiropractic neurology uses nerve pathways that move muscles to evaluate function. Once the function is restored, using our technique, the body begins to heal.

I created “Your Health In Motion” as a healing space for people just like me. My passion is finding a way to get my patients to feel 100%. My team and I are here to help and will find the answer to what is wrong, or will refer you to someone who can.

If you are in pain or suffering, give yourself the opportunity to be well.
