At an early age Dr. Snow was introduced to Chiropractic by his brother in law, who would visit while going to Chiropractic school in Los Angeles. At times while playing sports, injuries would occur and Dr. Snow's brother in law would treat them conservatively. The results were amazing and that started Dr. Snow's interest in pursuing a Chiropractic career!
Dr. Snow graduated Chiropractic school in 1997 at Western States Chiropractic College in Portland, Oregon. He has practiced in San Diego, CA for a number of years before moving to the east coast. Certifications that he holds are an Industrial Disability Examiner by the State of California, Graston Technique, Musculoskeletal Evaluation and Rehabilitation by UCSD Department of Orthopaedics School of Medicine, and Diplomate by the American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians. Dr. Snow also holds a 50 ton Merchant Mariners License by the U.S. Coast Guard.
When he is not spending time with his wife and four children, Dr. Snow loves being out on the water. Surfing has been a passion of his since he was 10 years old. Growing up close to the Mexican border allowed him to have many adventures in Baja California. There he had the best of both worlds, fishing and surfing, and he believes that New Smyrna Beach is that other special place!
