Welcome to Activate Chiropractic A Family Wellness Center

Your Poway Chiropractor

Who We Are

Activate Chiropractic is a patient-centered, family wellness clinic designed to provide fast relief of symptoms without using drugs, injections, or surgeries. Dr. Libby is a local Poway Chiropractor that focuses on treating the underlying cause(s) of your specific issue while addressing the body as a whole. This is achieved by removing subluxations in the spine. Subluxations cause a build-up of inflammation resulting in irritation to the nerves. This reduces the ability of the nerves to work properly resulting in body pain, back pain, muscle spasm, and decreased communication between the brain and body. As an experienced Poway chiropractor, I have been trained to detect and correct these misalignments. Using hands on techniques, we gently and effectively restore motion allowing the inflammation to dissipate and your body to begin the healing process. Visit your local Poway chiropractor & family wellness clinic, Activate Chiropractic today!  

Dr. Libby is an expert at treating back pain. He has years of experience in finding the reason for your back pain and restoring your health through gentle effective chiropractic treatments. It always starts with a detailed exam to make sure you are in the right place and that chiropractic care is right for you and your specific issue.

If you have not been to a chiropractor before and want to find out more, please Email Us or call 858-486-3400 to receive the answers to your questions from our experienced team. We also welcome referrals, so we invite you to use the "Send to Friend" link to share our chiropractic and wellness information with your friends and loved ones.

My goal has always been to provide individualized, efficient, affordable care for the whole family. I believe Activate Chiropractic does that and more! Working alongside my wife has allowed this vision to become a reality in our hometown.

We have built a practice that to me feels like home. I am excited to come to work everyday because everyone that comes through our doors is a part of our family.

I retired from UCSD after serving as the Executive Assistant to the Chairman of the Dept. of Anesthesiology and moved to the Bay area for the past three years. I recently returned to my hometown of San Diego and enjoy spending time with my three adult sons and their families, including six grandchildren! I am very happy to be a part of the Activate family and look forward to assisting you.
