Robb Russell, D.C.
My dedication to living a healthy lifestyle took a big leap during my sophomore year at San Diego State University (which was a long time ago, by the way). A guest lecturer came to my class on Clinical Nutrition and within a few minutes I had forgotten what class I was attending. The professor was wowing us with great pictures of his trips to mountain tops, remote deserts, wild rivers and other adventures. After he had the class hooked, he asked a rhetorical question: “What do these pictures have to do with diet and health?” His simple answer: “You can’t get to any of the places I have shown you if you aren’t healthy.” I was sold on the concept. Since that time I have attempted to live that kind of lifestyle and pass my knowledge to my patients. Over the past several years, the concepts of Paleo Diet and Ancestral Health have shaped my opinions and fueled my commitment to health and wellness.
I am a 1978 graduate of San Diego State University and a 1982 graduate of the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic. I have held several leadership positions including Chairman of the Chiropractic Section of Pacific Hospital of Long Beach, several posts with the California Chiropractic Association and I served as an Exam Commissioner and Expert Consultant for the California Board of Chiropractic Examiners (the state’s licensing board). I am currently an Examiner for the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners as well as an Expert Examiner and Witness for the Board of Chiropractic Examiners.
I have published articles in chiropractic magazines and journals and made presentations before chiropractic and medical conferences. I have also presented numerous talks before workers in various job settings on the topic of injury prevention.
