Meet the San Clemente Chiropractor | Dr. Russell Thompson
I did my undergraduate studies at California Baptist University where I earned by Bachelors of Science degree in Kinesiology. While at CBU, I was on the swim team. I earned 28 All-American honors, I was a 6 time individual NAIA National Champion, 7 time NAIA National Champion relay member, I was awarded the Outstanding Swimmer Award my junior year, and I was a team captain of 2 Men's Swimming and Diving NAIA National Champion teams. Chiropractic played a large part in my success as a collegiate athlete and guided my decision to become a chiropractor.
I wanted to improve the performance of athletes through a safe, healthy, and natural way. To do this I attended and ultimately graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic-West Campus, focusing on preventing sports injuries as well as improving sports performance. While in chiropractic school I was a part of the largest student run sports council. As a member of the Palmer West sports council I got the opportunity to treat amateur and professional athletes in a variety of athletic disciplines.
While sports, improving sports performance, and injury prevention were interests that brought me to be a chiropractor, family practice is where my passion is. My goal as a chiropractor is to get you back to the things you love. Whenever we are in pain we are not performing at our optimal level. Pain prevents us from doing things we enjoy. By using the knowledge I gained focusing on athletic performance I am able to improve your performance by reducing your pain as fast as possible and maintaining the proper structure and function of your spine.
I continue to stay active by participating in triathlons, playing basketball, surfing, and running after my four boys. My wife, Catherine, and I live here in San Clemente with our four boys; Ian, Caleb, Declan, and Troy.
Dr Corey Diamond
I graduated from the University of Delaware with a bachelors degree in Exercise Science and a concentration in Exercise Physiology. I found a passion for chiropractic in my undergraduate years, when shadowing a chiropractor. It was fascinating to see how quickly the treatments could lead the patients to recovery. The time spent with that doctor showed me how much chiropractors can help patient quality of life.
Because of that, I pursued post graduate studies at Palmer College of Chiropractic West Campus in San Jose, California. I graduated with my doctorate in the fall of 2018. While at Palmer, I was actively involved in Sports Council, which provides care for athletes at local sporting events such as the Avon Breast Cancer Walk, the Sea Otter Classic, and the Valor Games. I had the opportunity to serve for two years on the executive board as well.
I incorporate evidence based approaches to best find the root source of patients problem. I believe that chiropractic care can aide pain management in a safe and effective environment, while educating patients on strategies to continue recovery. My ultimate goal is to improve patients' range of motion and overall mobility. Care should always be patient centered to each and everyones' individual goals. I am certified in Rocktape Basic, Fluid Motion soft tissue tools, Functional Range Conditioning and have taken courses in Active Release Technique.
I recently got married to my wife Meredith. In our free time we like to go on hikes, head to the beach, and I enjoy working on my golf game, too.
