San Diego Pregnancy Chiropractor Mamerto “Dr. Mo” Estepa, DC brings a joy and passion about living that inspires most people that he meets. He grew up in Oxnard, California, attended UC Berkeley, and earned a BS degree in civil engineering. He then managed municipal construction projects for 8 years.
During that time, he became a chiropractic patient. Unusual back pain after training Brazilian jiu-jitsu prompted him to initially seek mainstream medical care. Painkilling shots were recommended for treatment. Knowing that shots only mask the pain, not correct its cause, he decided to give sports chiropractic a chance.
Chiropractic succeeded in relieving the back pain. As he continued receiving chiropractic adjustments, he noticed improvements to his physical training and overall health. He realized that chiropractic helps people get better and keeps them at their best. Inspired to share chiropractic with others and to serve his community differently, he decided to become a chiropractor.
He earned his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Cleveland Chiropractic College Los Angeles. While in school, he experienced first-hand how chiropractic profoundly improved the lives of people with rheumatoid arthritis, HIV, diabetes, osteoarthritis, and vision impairments.
Dr. Mo has extensive specialized training and experience in providing chiropractic care to pregnant women, babies, and children. He is certified in the Webster Technique, which is a mainstay in Pediatric Chiropractic care. He also hosts a Pathways Connect Gathering Group in the office, to empower families with the information and resources for conscious family living.
Dr. Mo is excited to join the Life Within team and looks forward to helping families build amazing health through chiropractic.
