TIM SHANNAHAN, DCDoctor of Chiropractic | Founder
Dr. Tim Shannahan became inspired to become a chiropractor after suffering a skiing injury. Initially, he suffered shooting pain in his arms, back, and down his legs. After trying several other treatment options (i.e. pain killers and muscle relaxers, physical medicine and acupuncture), he finally found relief after seeing a chiropractor. In a short period of time the chiropractor completely resolved the pain and brought Dr. Tim back to an optimal state of health. It was through this experience that a seed of inspiration was planted. Chiropractic has changed Tim’s life in the most positive way. It not only increased the health and quality of his life, it helped to maximize his true health potential.
DR. KRISTEN TENWOLDEChiropractor
Dr. Kristen Tenwolde is a native San Diegan. She began a 16-year fastpitch softball career at age six and competed as starting pitcher in her community league, on travel teams, in high school, and through college. Over the course of her pitching experience, Kristen suffered a few injuries for which she sought help from chiropractic doctors. Inspired by the fact that her chiropractors literally kept her in the game by use of their hands, and not using drugs, needles, or scalpels, Kristen decided in high school that she would become a chiropractor. Following college graduation, she entered Northwestern Health Sciences University where she attained her goal to become Doctor of Chiropractic. Dr. Tenwolde is fully committed to providing our community with the best chiropractic care through state of the art techniques.
