Dr. Alex Hernandez, DC

Chiropractic Physician


I am a dedicated, patient-focused, multilingual family chiropractor with a stellar academic and clinical background. My expertise lies in diagnosing and correcting a wide variety of spinal related conditions and injuries. My methods are based on scientific principles of physics, mathematics and engineering. I earned a post-graduate distinguished fellow of Chiropractic Biophysics® certification, which gave me objective protocols on how to treat and manage most spine cases. By utilizing this technique, which uses cutting edge technology to gain permanent corrective changes to the spine, I am able to provide exceptional chiropractic care. I am also certified in Thompson Terminal Point Technique which utilizes low force and specific high velocity adjustments to the spine for maximum results. In addition, I am accomplished in the following chiropractic techniques:

  • Diversified Full Spine, Gonstead, Toggle Recoil, Activator instrument adjusting, Myofascial Disruption Treatment, Instrument assisted soft tissue technique, Nimmo Trigger Point Therapy, Laser therapy, Extremity Adjusting and Physical Therapy Modalities.
