Dr. Afshin Janmohamed received his BSc degree in Human Biology and his Doctorate of Chiropractic from the University of Western States. Prior to this, he had a career in the healthcare field where he was exposed to patients who were taking a variety of medications to minimize their symptoms and alleviate pain.

After all, being physically active is essential to help the human body function optimally.
Though Dr. Afshin enjoys treating individuals from all walks of life, he has an avid interest in treating all types of athletes by helping to improve their pain-free function in sport and optimizing their results while helping to reach their personal goals.

This allows more blood to flow into the injured area accelerating healing, performance, and activating muscle groups.
