Believe it or not, my reasoning for becoming a follower of chiropractic is due to pure fate. Only fate can allow someone to take a risk and fall in love with the result. My passion for being involved in health care began while attending middle school and continuing at Francisco Bravo Medical Magnet High School of Los Angeles. During my senior year at Bravo I became recognized by the state of
The goal was to give 100% to the Chiropractic Model of Life. Fate has brought me to not only appreciate but love this model, and in return, it has given 200%. It is truly a blessing to realize and experience what others mean when it is said that they never work a day in their life because they have a love for their profession.

Education holds a majority of the substance when it comes to obtaining and maintaining optimal health and wellness. When educating patients about Chiropractic, the Vertebral Subluxation Complex (VSC) holds a great truth. This is the belief that initially places your nervous system (Brain, Spinal Cord, and Peripheral Nerves) as the control of every aspect and function of the human body, including all things from an itch to fighting a cold and from pain to indigestion. The everyday stress of life compiled with bad posture, slips and falls, motor vehicle accidents, etc…cause the nervous system to become compromised. When compromised, the ongoing brain-body connection is cut off and therefore results in sickness, pain, or systematic malfunction. How else can the body work without proper input of instructions from the brain? I would like for you to try and perform a task on a monitor without the appropriate connection to the computer and then inform me of the results. With the VSC as a foundation, the goal of Chiropractic is to remove all negative influence and compromise to the nervous system.
I am a firm believer of the vast power and limitless capability of the mind once put to use. After completing so many years of schooling is when it dawned on me that I knew so little. The learning process has never ended and has instead become more intense on a day-to-day basis. Every day continues to provide some form of test or challenge to face, and with each task, I plan to leave a testimony. Just as fate has brought me to love this profession, faith will be the very substance that will allow me to become one of the best to ever become a part of the world of chiropractic.
Dr. David J. Ballard, D.C. has an exceptional educational background. Beginning with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Molecular Biology from California State University, Northridge and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Human Biology from Cleveland Chiropractic College, Los Angeles. Dr. Ballard had an insatiable drive for continuing his education toward a medically orientated profession. After doing some indebted research into the medical profession he found that the "symptom oriented approach" was not achieving the long term results he had expected.
Five years earlier his mother had seen a medical doctor for a serious back problem that had left her bedridden - even after a 2 month period of hospitalization. Disappointed in her progress, she then sought Chiropractic care and had remarkable results. Within a relatively short period of time, she was out of bed and on her way to recovery! Recalling this experience, Dr. Ballard found that the Chiropractic"cause oriented approach" held the prospect of changing the condition, not just masking the symptoms with various drugs! In examining the difference of both the approach and the results, he became very excited about the possibilities to enhance a patient's long term health potential through chiropractic!
He attended Cleveland Chiropractic College, Los Angeles. He graduated with honors in 1992.
Since graduation from Chiropractic College, Dr. Ballard has continued to expand his knowledge of both the chiropractic and medical fields, striving to remain on the "cutting edge" of both treatment options and technology. He has attended post graduate courses on a variety of topics and participated in specialty training courses including interdisciplinary Management of TEMPOROMANDIBULAR Joint(TMJ) Disorders; developed a successful protocol for conservative treatment for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Tennis Elbow and other disorders of the shoulder, arm wrist and hand. Dr. Ballard is one of the first chiropractor in the area to be certified and have on site Diagnostic Ultrasound for musculoskeletal conditions. Dr Ballard utilizes Exercise Rehabilitation in conjunction with his chiropractic treatments. He believes that through ongoing education he can remain true to his commitment to offer the best care possible to his patients.
