Dr. Manuel E. Valle
A Certified Chiropractic Sports Practitioner (CCSP) a graduate of Life Chiropractic West College with certifications in a large spectrum of soft tissue techniques such as Graston Techniques® & Active Release Techniques® as well as Kinesio and Rock Taping® applications.

By combining his expertise in biomechanics and the musculoskeleltal system, Dr. Valle is able to deliver state of the art chiropractic care to athlete and non-athlete alike, and thus maximizing their performance potential. Dr. Valle is a co-founder of Bay Area Sports Chiropractors (BASC), a collaborative network of fully credentialed ART® providers that provide on-site sport therapy to numerous events. As part of BASC, Dr. Valle has worked various sporting events such as S.F. Marathon, Cinderella Classic, Wild Flower & Vineman Triathlons during which he's treated both professional and amateur athletes alike. Dr. Valle also served as the official Chiropractor and ART® provider for the mixed martial arts amateur circuit fighters of Max Self Defense Gym both in-house and at competitions, as well as professional fighters from various training camps. Dr. Manuel Valle is the treating chiropractor for Elite XC's Welterweight MMA Champion, Jake Shields, which he thanked during his post fight live interview on the July 26, 2008 CBS Saturday Night Fights. Jake Shields has recently signed on with the Ultimate Fighting Champion (UFC) organization as top Welterweight contender. Dr. Valle is also the treating doctor to other well known MMA fighters, such as Strikeforce's Gilbert Melendez and others. As such, Dr. Valle uses a "whole person approach" when taking care of his patients. He recognizes that today's cookie cutter approach used by many other chiropractors is NOT an appropriate treatment method. By combining the very best hands-on-techniques, state of the art soft tissue techniques, physiotherapy procedures, and functional rehabilitation exercises, he is able to personalize treatment of individual patient at ever step of the way. Dr. Valle's goal is MAXIMIZING YOUR POTENTIAL! During his spare time, Dr. Valle enjoys spending quality time with his wife and two children, fishing, camping, mountain biking, CrossFit and Jiu jitsu.
