Dr. Sebastian Gonzales DC, CSCS, ART®, TPI CGFI
Doctor of Chiropractic
Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist
Elite Active Release Techniques® Provider
TPI Certified Golf Medical Professional – Level 3
Dr. Sebastian Gonzales graduated from the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic, at the top of his class, where he was provided with an extensive education of human anatomy, in diagnosis of musculoskeletal injuries, and in chiropractic manipulative care. He received his Bachelor’s of Science in Biology from California State University, Long Beach. However, he attributes most of his knowledge and expertise of musculoskeletal injuries to his education in Active Release Techniques (ART).
“It was in high school when I first was introduced to ART. I played baseball and had dreams of making it big until I injured my low back in my junior year. I tried medications, physical therapy and home remedies for 5 months, when the pain finally cleared up enough for me to step back on the field. The 1st day I was back, I hurt myself again and now orthopedic surgeons were recommending surgery to repair a disc herniation in my lumbar spine. Not satisfied with this solution, I by chance came across and ART provider. Long story short, I was fixed in about 3 weeks and have not had back pain since, but I do still have that same disc herniation. It’s just scary to think about how many people have had unnecessary surgeries for conditions which can be fixed with ART.”
Dr. Gonzales talks about being an Active Release® Chiropractor in Huntington Beach:
“I started my practice in Orange CA but majority of my patients come from Huntington Beach, Newport Beach and Long Beach to when the opportunity presented itself, I jumped at it. I live and train in Huntington Beach so why not work there too!”
Dr. Gonzales enjoys fishing, hiking, weight lifting, gardening, and spending time with his wife, an Emergency Department Nurse, and bunnies in his spare time. Many times they spend Sunday afternoons riding their tandem bike around town with an Ipod hooked up on the bike for music.
He and his father hiked up Mount Whitney together on 2 different occasions, once in 1994 and again in 2005. He has played baseball for more than 15 years but has spent his recent years in endurance sports.
He has had great success with treating and conditioning rotational athletes (ie: golfers, baseball, racket, tennis, and hockey players) in addition to endurance athletes (ie: runners and bikers)
