ABOUT THE DOCTOR
Jon Franks, D.C.
Dr. Jon Franks has been an athlete all his life and understands pain, having broken his back in 1985. He has served as team chiropractor and strength coach for UCLA basketball under the legendary Walt Hazzard. He also worked with the pro volleyball tour for a number of years.
Combining specific exercises and stretches with traditional Chiropractic is the brainchild of Dr. Franks that allows his patients to achieve a balanced health target unachievable solely by manipulation alone. Lifeforce Sports Chiropractic offers same-day or next-day appointments and detailed med/legal evaluations completed within two weeks of patient discharge. Dr. Franks also worked with the US Olympic boxing team in the 84 Olympics, as well as 6 other countries including Italy, and was offered the Boston Celtics training job in 1987 but opted to stay in southern California. Dr. Franks leads the way in personal injury treatment through continuing advanced therapies, exercises and Chiropractic. He has been featured in virtually every health and fitness magazine including the holy grail (Muscle and Fitness). He has also appeared on hundreds of television interviews and shows, including but not limited to, the Late Show and the Merv Griffin show.
He was also the first wheelchair athlete to challenge ironman Hawaii and through his efforts there is a permanent category for both men and women in that race.
