Dr. Lauren Clum graduated Magna Cum Laude, with high honors, from Life Chiropractic College West, earning her the Valedictory distinction in her class. She has completed hundreds of hours of post-graduate work in specific chiropractic through the International Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association (IUCCA) and the That Something Coaching Program to join the ranks of only a handful of chiropractors trained to deliver this specialized work.
After graduation, Dr. Clum moved to San Jose, Costa Rica to practice with her brother and his wife, both chiropractors. Together they were able to serve hundreds of people each week in three offices. A year and a half later, Dr. Clum returned to her Bay Area home and began plans for opening her own practice. Just about a year later, she opened the doors to her dream practice on Piedmont Avenue in Oakland.
During her time in Costa Rica, Dr. Clum was afforded the opportunity to hone her Spanish-speaking skills, and is pleased to now run a bilingual practice, helping both English and Spanish speakers alike. Additionally, once a year she travels to San Salvador, El Salvador with a group of chiropractors to provide free chiropractic care to the local people. Over the course of her three mission trips she has cared for thousands of people, from the very young to the very old, providing hope and better health to the underserved.
Prior to her chiropractic studies, Dr. Clum received her Bachelor’s of Science degree in Business Management from Sonoma State University.
Throughout chiropractic school, she served as president of the World Congress of Chiropractic Students, an international organization that brings together chiropractic students from across the globe to effect change in the profession, as well as on the Executive Board of Omega Sigma Phi, a chiropractic philanthropic sorority.
