The California Chiropractic Association, the Sacramento-based statewide, nonprofit organization of chiropractic doctors and allied industries, announced that Brian Stenzler, a San Diego and Del Mar-based doctor of chiropractic, was elected to serve as president of CCA. He succeeds Matt Hubbard, also of San Diego, who now serves as Immediate Past President.
“I am honored to have been elected by my CCA peers to help fulfill our vision of doctors of chiropractic as the first choice for wellness and the optimization of health,” said Stenzler. “I look forward to positioning the California Chiropractic Association as a vibrant, creative, relevant and substantive organization that makes a difference in the lives of members, local districts, the business community and the California families we serve.”
Brian Stenzler received his doctorate of chiropractic degree from Life University in 1998 and received honors in clinical Excellence. In 1999, he received a master’s degree in Sports Health Science from Life University.
He started his career in Long Island, NY where he co-founded DREAM Wellness with locations in Great Neck and Lake Grove. While practicing in New York, Stenzler held several positions on the board for the NY Chiropractic Council, including president of Nassau County, and was a member of The Council’s Executive Board.
In 2006, Stenzler moved to San Diego and opened DREAM Wellness centers in Pacific Beach and Del Mar. He previously served two terms as president of the California Chiropractic Association San Diego County District, and also held positions on the CCA’s Executive Committee before being elected president.
His 16-plus-year career is highlighted with honors, including New York Chiropractic Council’s Chiropractor of the Year, The World Chiropractic Alliance’s Outstanding Service Award, The Chiropractic Leadership Alliance’s “On Purpose” doctor of the month and many more.
He was recognized by the American Red Cross for assisting the rescue and relief workers at Ground Zero after the 9/11 tragedy. His humanitarian efforts continued into San Diego when he served chiropractic care to the firefighters in the 2007 fires, and he also spent time on a mission trip to Panama where chiropractic is not easily accessible to the citizens of that country.
He travels the world as a guest speaker at chiropractic conferences and colleges, and lectures and performs workshops at numerous businesses, schools and civic organizations as a wellness expert. He has also been featured on television and radio shows nationally.
Stenzler received the prestigious 2012 Doctor of the Year award from the California Chiropractic Association, San Diego County District.
He has been a member of the U.S. Golf Association’s Wellness Team since 2009, serving chiropractic to the professional golfers participating in the U.S. Open.
