Dr. Armen Agacanyan's Background
At age three, Dr. Armen and his family moved here as Armenian immigrants from Turkey. His first two languages were Armenian and Turkish. A family friend who is a Chiropractor introduced him to Chiropractic. After dealing with incessant headaches and neck/ low back pain following an automobile collision, Dr. Armen could not get through his weeks in college without taking pain relievers at least every other day. Following only a few weeks of care, Armen's headaches and pains almost completely ceased. Experiencing these remarkable results encouraged Armen to forego going to Dental school and instead pursue Chiropractic as a lifelong profession and passion. He had learned that given the proper circumstances and a healthy environment, the body has an amazing, intrinsic ability to help itself heal and properly function.
After 4 years at Santa Clara University as a pre-med/ Combined Sciences major, Dr. Armen received his Bachelor of Science degree in 1999. He graduated Cum Laude from Palmer West College of Chiropractic in 2003. During his final year in Chiropractic school, he began working with Dr. Matt and Mike Janzen (Chiropractors for Ultimate Fighting Champions, professional athletes/tri-athletes and Olympic medallists) and completed his preceptorship with Dr. John McDaniel (head of the Diplomate program in Chiropractic Sports Orthopedics and team doctor for many Mountain View schools) at Spinal and Sports Care Center in Mountain View. Working with the Janzens and Dr. McDaniel helped Dr. Armen hone his clinical Chiropractic and sports injury treatment and rehabilitation expertise.
Dr. Armen Agacanyan specializes in the treatment and rehabilitation of sports injuries. He has advanced postgraduate training as a Certified Chiropractic Sports Practitioner since 2008 and a Diplomate in Rehabilitation since 2010. He certified as an Active Release Technique provider in 2003 and as Graston Technique provider in 2004. Dr. Armen has undergone more than 3 years of postgraduate training. He is also a TRX-certified exercise specialist. After becoming Certified in the Functional Movement Screen, a screen used to identify movement asymmetries, his passion is currently directing him towards learning more about movement science, running mechanics and postural patterns. His experience with Ironman Triathletes, professional martial artists, weekend warriors, chronic pain patients, Crossfitters, runners and athletes of various ages allows him to offer a unique therapeutic approach that is unrivaled in the South County. Dr. Armen has an ethical and evidence-based treatment approach and always puts his patients first. Therapies used in the office are also used by professional athletes and organizations from around the world including in the NFL, UFC, NBA, Olympics, NHL, Ironman, Tour D'France, MLB and more.
