About Dr. Canepa

Education: Dr. Canepa graduated from Life Chiropractic College -West in San Lorenzo, CA in 1983, and has been serving patients in the Bay Area and beyond for over 30+ years.

Experience: Upon graduating, Dr. Canepa studied under Dr. Arden D. Zimmerman, D.C. (developer of The Specific Adjusting Machine) and practiced with him from 1984-1986. In 1986, Dr. Canepa opened his own office, continuing to practice in the same manner, but with an improved adjusting machine that was quieter and faster. It made for a more comfortable adjustment. Dr. Zimmerman gave Dr. Canepa sole authority to be the only doctor to continue the Specific Adjusting Machine Technique.

My Technique

Upper Cervical Chiropractic (UpC): The upper neck area is the most critical area of the spine, where the nervous system can be affected. In this area, spinal cord compression can exist as a result of misalignment of the atlas and/or axis vertebrae. Dr. Canepa feels that most specialists have overlooked this condition, and has focused his career around treating it.

Specific Adjusting Machine (SAM): Dr. Canepa uses the Specific Adjusting Machine to administer treatment. The machine takes only a fraction of a second to deliver a scientific movement in a precise direction to relieve nerve pressure.
