Dr. Dwayne Acoba, D.C., brings his 15 years of caring chiropractic career expertise and more than a decade of teaching experience. His specialty is Applied Kinesiology (AK), in which muscles are tested for strength and/or weakness as a means to diagnose illness and determine best treatment options.
Dr. Acoba has been in the Bay Area (Alameda, California) for more than six years, after living and working in SoCal for 22 years. There, he worked in a number of successful practices: At Paramount Chiropractic Institute in both Downey and Anaheim, he provided care for as many as 100 patients daily. He also provided subluxation-based wellness care at Aloha Chiropractic in Long Beach, and at The Hollywood Health Place in Hollywood.
While still in Southern California, the Doctor opened a Chiropractic practice servicing those forging elite fitness. Once in the Bay area, as a member at a local Crossfit gym, he noted that there was no friendly neighborhood chiropractor that they were referring to. After a discussion with the gym owner, Dr. Acoba opened a space within the facility—and was immediately taking on more clients than he could handle.
In addition to his duties with In Motion Chiropractic in Livermore, Dr. Acoba now works in four other Crossfit gyms in the East Bay, servicing elite athletes, while applying the skills he has developed through Applied Kinesiology (AK). His success in accessing the body’s musculature allows him to evaluate function and movement patterns—and ultimately reset the body’s musculature.
Dr. Acoba earned a degree as a Doctor of Chiropractic at Los Angeles Chiropractic College and both a Bachelor’s degree and Certificate Of Teaching from California State University. Dr. Acoba has a California State Chiropractic License with the National Board of Chiropractic and a Diplomate from Morter Health Systems in Bio Energetic Synchronization Techniques.
