Dr. Nadia Emen, D.C. brings with her over 10 years of experience in the chiropractic arena. Although Dr. Emen specializes in the treatment of personal injuries and injured workers as well as the medical-legal aspect of the California Workers Compensation program, she also specializes in the treatment of orthopedic and non-orthopedic injuries and conditions. She has had extensive working and training experience with various other specialists, both in the alternative and medical fields.
Dr. Emen received her B.A. from CUNY/Brooklyn College, New York in 1997. During her junior year, she was experiencing low back pain that was gradually worsening. Unhappy and dissatisfied with the medical care that she received, upon the advice of her sister, she decided to seek chiropractic treatment. Within two weeks, her back pain completely resolved. Amazed at her body's ability to heal itself with chiropractic guiding the way, Dr. Emen decided to become a chiropractic physician instead of a medical doctor, as was her initial plan. After graduation, she attended Los Angeles Chiropractic College, now called Southern California University of Health Sciences, in Whittier, California, where she completed her studies in 2001. Upon passing the state board exam and getting her license, she then went on to work with various chiropractors, acupuncturists, orthopedic surgeons, neurologists, psychologists, neurosurgeons, and physical therapists. She spent the next 10 years broadening her clinical experience and attended many seminars to further expand her abilities to heal effectively via chiropractic.
