Andrew Clarke, CMT, CPT
Soft-Tissue Therapist, Corrective Exercise Specialist
A former computer programmer of 15 years Andrew entered the Health and Fitness field in 2012. Andrew was an avid runner and body builder who sustained a lumbar herniated disc in 2007 which would forever change his life. He was aided by a Corrective Exercise Specialist who helped him regain strength of control of his body. So impressed with this exercise methodology Andrew embarked on a career change in 2012 and he himself became a Certified Personal Trainer.
Andrew established The Center for Corrective Exercise in beautiful Maui, Hawaii in 2012 where he honed his skills in working with injury victims and the aging population. In 2013 Andrew discovered, quite by accident, that he had a gift and talent for further helping his clients through the healing touch of therapeutic massage. In 2014 Andrew enrolled in the Maui School of Therapeutic Massage and completed his full time studies in just seven months. Andrew is a recent San Diego transplant and loves living and hanging out in downtown San Diego.
Jacqueline Grant, DC
Chiropractor, Sport Rehabilitation, Active Muscle Release
Growing up, Dr. Jacqueline Grant was heavily involved in sports and running, and always had a passion for learning about the body and the way it worked. While in college working on a pre-medical degree, Dr. Jacqueline Grant was in a car accident and injured her back. She started seeing a chiropractor and that interaction changed her career path. She decided the best way she could help patients was to offer them an alternative to traditional medicine. She decided to change focus and schools and started working towards her chiropractic degree with a focus on sports rehabilitation and muscle work.
Dr. Grant grew up in a small town outside of St. Louis, MO. After graduating high school with honors, she attended St. Louis University and transferred to Logan University, where she obtained a Bachelor of Science in Human Biology. She continued her studies at Logan College of Chiropractic, where she obtained her Doctorate as a Chiropractor and her Masters in Sports Science and Rehabilitation. Her education in soft tissue includes Active Release Technique, Graston Technique and Myofascial Release. Her post-graduate education includes coursework as a Certified Chiropractic Sports Practitioner.
In the office, Dr. Grant specializes in treating athletic injuries and helping patients improve performance, as well as educating them on the necessary steps to avoid injury. She has a passion for teaching patients about preventative care and helping families to stay healthy overall. She enjoys taking on difficult cases that have had little results elsewhere and helping those patients find relief, including patients with disc injuries.
When you treat with Dr. Grant, you can expect a thorough visit with a focus on muscle work. She utilizes multiple adjusting techniques, depending on the patient’s needs, including Cox flexion/distraction, Thompson, and Diversified. Her goal is to treat not only the joint complaint, but also focus on the surrounding soft tissue to relieve pain and discomfort, as well as help patients strengthen for long term results.
