Dr. Young is a native of Oakland, CA. He grew up cross country running and riding his bike through the redwoods of the Bay area. His undergraduate degree in Exercise Physiology is from UC Berkeley. He received clinical honors through his Doctorate of Chiropractic from Life Chiropractic College West.
While his initial experience was as a full spine chiropractor, he quickly became intrigued with the NUCCA technique. Since then, he has fully embraced upper cervical care, and has successfully completed the challenging 300-hour Diplomate program in Craniocervical Junction Procedures (DCCJP) through the International Chiropractic Association. He is also Level 2 Certified in NUCCA Procedures & Protocols. He continually evolves professionally and has extensive, post-graduate training in Spinal Decompression, Knee Rehabilitation, and Neuropathy Treatments.
Through hard work, dedication, and community service he earned the honor of Eagle Scout rank through the Boy Scouts of America. Dr. Young continues to serve by being the volunteer chiropractor for homeless youth for San Diego’s Urban Street Angels. He visits their campus and adjusts the program’s participants on a weekly basis. You can find him cycling around the city on his personal time, as he enjoys all things exercise.

Dr. Tapia experienced NUCCA Spinal Care as a patient before she graduated from chiropractic school. She quickly became an advocate for this specialty chiropractic technique as she saw patient after patient get help and relief. She learned several upper cervical techniques but came back to NUCCA as it was a lifesaver for her own personal health. As a lifelong learner, she continually grows professionally and has advanced post-graduate training in Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression, Knee Rehabilitation and Neuropathy Treatments.
She completed the post-graduate Academy of Chiropractic Philosophers Program through Sherman College of Chiropractic after completing her doctorate from Life Chiropractic College West. She was honored as the Outstanding Graduate for her Bachelor’s degree in Human Nutrition at San Diego State University and also holds a Master’s degree in Education.
She draws on her prior career experience as a science teacher at Sweetwater High School, and from working at the diet office at Alvarado Hospital. She also leans on her prior pharmaceutical industry experience to better help patients with their health. On her personal time, she enjoys gardening, reading great books, and hiking with her dog, Charlie. She is fluent in Spanish as she is originally from Mazatlan, Mexico but has called San Diego home for over 40 years.

Review Intouch ChiropracticBy Savannah Dorris I am so thankful I found Intouch Chiropractic! They have been a blessing in many ways. Dr. Young's confidence in my body's ability to heal from the very beginning gave me hope, and I knew I was in the right place. Dr. Young is wonderful! He listens and makes you feel like what you're experiencing matters. He is the first doctor I have seen that uses the NUCCA method, and I have to say I'm a believer! At first, I was skeptical because he was so knowledgable about what I had been experiencing without me even telling him. It is obvious he understands how the body functions and how one little problem can cause a cascade of symptoms. I started seeing him for head aches and neck/back pain. I was also at the time experiencing symptoms of fatigue, depression, heart palpitations, and GI issues. After about 4 and a half months my head aches are gone, along with the other symptoms! Jocelyn, the office manager, is also amazing. They are family oriented, too, as my two little boys were welcome from day one. Now, my oldest knows the staff by name! The whole team is great, and I can't wait for my husband to start going soon. I would recommend Intouch Chiropractic!
