Dr. Aubrey Huey, DC

Dr. Aubrey Huey, DC

I was first introduced to chiropractic as a kid. My mother suffered from extreme neck pain stemming from a childhood accident, and visits to the chiropractor were the only thing that seemed to give her some relief. I didn’t quite understand it all at the time, but she always brought me along with her, and I would just sit and watch the magic happen. However, it wasn’t until much later in my life that I was able to experience chiropractic for myself. 

In the meantime, I did most of my growing up in the midwest and eventually made my way out to California to get my bachelor’s degree at UC Berkeley — GO BEARS! It was there that I also began playing rugby — my choice of an emotional outlet to escape the stresses of school. I was selected as a captain my junior and senior year of school and also had the opportunity to play on an international tour with the Women’s Collegiate All-Americans. After graduating with my degree in Integrative Biology, I became an ACSM certified personal trainer, and soon after, started my own photography business. 

About a year into my newly found career path, I was contacted by an old college teammate, inviting me to come out and join a new women’s rugby team she was trying to build in the area. This rugby program also just so happened to be supported by a nearby chiropractic school, Life Chiropractic College West, where all of the players were given access to regular chiropractic care. Being a full contact sport, it only made sense, and for the first time in my life, I was not only able to witness the benefits of chiropractic, but experience it for myself. In time, I was able to see that chiropractic was not only for healing, but for prevention of injury. Having readily accessible chiropractic care, my teammates and I were able to train and perform at our optimal levels and speed up recovery and injury rehab. Our first competitive season, we put ourselves on the map by going undefeated and winning our first national championship. In our successes, I was able to realize the potential in chiropractic to help so many more people than just us athletes. It was then that I decided to attend chiropractic school and become a chiropractor myself. 

After three nonstop years of schooling in an accelerated program, I graduated with clinical and class honors, three rugby national championships, and an unshaken enthusiasm for chiropractic. I’m so excited to be apart of the growing chiropractic community and look forward to providing this wonderful service to you.

In my spare time, I stay active playing competitive rugby and train in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. I also love to feed my creative side through photography and playing music. I’m always keen on saying “yes” to new adventures and new experiences, and if it involves food, you can always count me in!
