Meet Dr. Ross Graham
Passion for Chiropractic
I was born in Oxbow, Saskatchewan, Canada (just north of Fargo, North Dakota). At 19 years old, I started working as a massage therapist/nutritionist at the Prairie Health Clinic in Barnwell, Alberta. I was amazed to see how many health problems were not responsive to medical treatment.
The personal experience I had with my injuries inspired my passion for chiropractic therapy. I have a strong desire to help people through natural means. I was inspired by my chiropractor, who not only helped relieve my suffering, but also encouraged me to take the big leap from being a massage therapist and nutritionist to becoming a certified Doctor of Chiropractic. I could see his passion for this alternative therapy, and he strongly advocated the benefits of this healing art.
I received my pre-med requirements from the University of Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada. Anatomy, nutrition, and exercise physiology always peaked my interest. The judo class and club were some of my favorites, which balanced my academic classes, especially since the Sensi was Canada’s Olympic coach and his Olympic team practiced there. In 1989, I completed my chiropractic doctorate from Life Chiropractic College-West, right here in the Bay Area. I chose Life College because of its reputation for being focused on the technique and philosophy of chiropractic care.
I spent my first two years in practice in Taber, Alberta, with a chiropractor who encouraged and inspired me. Afterwards, I moved back to the San Francisco Bay area and practiced on the border of Oakland and Piedmont for 13 years. Then, I practiced in San Francisco for 7 years. I recently moved my office to be able to practice in the same community I live in. I am very excited to work in Mill Valley.
Mill Valley Chiropractor: Up Close and Personal
The San Francisco Bay Area is a great place to live and offers a multitude of exciting activities. I especially enjoy hiking, trail running, skating, singing, and dancing. I just began a practice of Qigong. The North Bay is also a great place to raise a family. Spending time with my son Gavin, and my daughters, Jackie and Greta, brings great joy to my life.
My purpose is to bring more energy, greater balance, and a better quality of health to all individuals using a variety of techniques. I seek to give each person tools that fit his or her lifestyle – tools that empower and produce good health. In certain instances, I do video analysis of a person’s gait or sport to detect long-term problems. I keep current in postgraduate studies. I am a past Qualified Medical Examiner and board-eligible for Diplomat of Chiropractic Orthopedics.
I personally receive regular chiropractic wellness care and will continue to do so throughout my life. I get great energy and balance from wellness care, and am continually surprised with my results beyond resolving muscular aches and pains. The abuse and over-utilization of pain medications is at an epidemic level in our society. I want to help people see there are other, more natural and healthier options. I exercise on a regular basis with a multitude of cross-training. I eat a very balanced diet. I practice what I preach. Be assured I include any holistic health advice I give to you in my own life.
Enough about me! How can we help you with today’s safe and natural chiropractic care? Give my Mill Valley chiropractic office a call so I can help you take your first step towards better health.
