Dr. Joshua Pickell, DC
Dr. Joshua Pickell is a Chiropractor in Los Angeles serving the community of Pacific Vibes Chiropractic. He graduated Cum Laude from Life Chiropractic College West in Hayward, CA with a Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.) degree. Chiropractic school gave him an opportunity to learn all about the art, science, and philosophy of chiropractic medicine. Coming from a science background, Dr. Josh was especially interested in learning more about the impact that spinal misalignments have on the anatomy and physiology of the body and the art of correcting them. In the time since, he has seen chiropractic adjustments work wonders for people who had already tried everything else. He sees chiropractic visits as an essential component of a healthy, optimal life.
Dr. Josh is a transplant from the East Coast. He was born and raised in New Jersey, spending his life there until moving to Richmond, VA to attend the University of Richmond. He double majored in Leadership Studies and Biology and graduated with a B.A. in Leadership Studies. After finishing his undergraduate studies, he moved to New York City where he worked for three years. In his final day job, Dr. Josh was an ophthalmic lab technician and clinical research coordinator for a retina specialist. Patients would often ask him when he was going to become a doctor, and with the encouragement of his chiropractor at the time, he realized his healthcare journey was only getting started. This prompted him to pack up and move across the country to pursue his Doctor of Chiropractic Degree. After graduation, Los Angeles called to him with its natural beauty and wealth of things to do, and he now lives in Koreatown. In his free time, Dr. Josh enjoys lifting weights, hanging out at the beach, exploring hidden gems in LA, hiking in the hills, cooking good foods, and traveling around the world.
Dr. Josh values service to others. He had an amazing opportunity to go to India on a chiropractic service trip through his school. In three days, the mission adjusted over 11,000 people in a country with limited access to chiropractic care. He saw many lives change on that trip and will never doubt the power of an adjustment after that experience. Now he serves Southern California and intends to volunteer with more service trips to underserved areas in the future.
Dr. Josh believes he can make the world a better place by helping people better express health. When people are healthy, their relationships, wealth, fulfillment, and sense of purpose also improve. Health is largely a product of our daily habits and actions, so a holistic view taking everything into account is the best way to achieve and maintain good health. Being healthy is not just about being free of disease, it is only achieved when your body, spirit, and mind work as well as possible. Dr. Josh cannot wait to serve you and help you live the life you desire.
