Biography

​​​Dr. Roy Page, D.C., M.S. Sports Science & Rehabilitation, CCSP®, MTOM, L.Ac., Dipl. OM

Roy’s interests in movement started at a young age when a serious football injury left him in a wheelchair and on crutches for over a year, and his process of emerging would require more than just the prescribed rehabilitation. He found the martial arts as a north star toward a better way of living well beyond his previous state of disability, and through prolonged dedication nourished a love affair with the philosophies, physical traditions, and healing practices of the East.

He would go on to become a Doctor of Chiropractic with several additional graduate and postgraduate degrees in Sports Science and Rehabilitation as well as becoming a licensed acupuncturist with degrees in Traditional Oriental Medicine.

With this background, his vision was enhanced during his Western Medical training such that he knew there was more to medicine than solely what he was learning to do to the patient; rather, he knew inherently that true healing arises from what he could teach the patient to do for themselves.

He has sought out wisdom from teachers around the globe representing a myriad of clinical systems and training approaches, and he has had the privilege to treat all manner of athletes from youth to professional over the last decade in his Los Angeles based private practice. As such, he is uniquely qualified to provide commentary on the current trends in physical medicine and athletic development.
