Dr Jacob has been on the path to being a chiropractor since he was 11 years old. After graduating from Duke University, Dr. Jacob attended Palmer College of Chiropractic – West Campus in San Jose, California, and became a chiropractor in 2010. There, he elected to learn nine specialized adjusting techniques and advanced clinical nutritional training, providing him with specialized knowledge to better serve his patients. Dr. Jacob was the recipient of the prestigious Virgil V. Strang Philosophy Award, the highest honor given at graduation at Palmer College, presented to one graduating student per class. From 2011 to 2013 served as the primary clinician in the highest volume chiropractic practice in Ventura County, California, and to date has delivered nearly 70,000 chiropractic adjustments. He is certified by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association in the Webster Technique for pregnant women, and he is a co-founder and lead clinician of Genuine Chiropractic, a successful vitalistic chiropractic office in Santa Barbara specializing in prenatal and family care.
As a chiropractor, Dr. Jacob teaches that the nervous system is the mind’s connection to the world. When there is interference in the nervous system due to a spinal subluxation, integration within the body is diminished. Specific chiropractic adjustments remove nervous system interference and allow for optimal communication between the brain and body. This allows for the highest life expression and health for the body, mind, and spirit.
