Dr. Melissa Vega first became interested in chiropractic at the young age of 8 when she and her family were involved in a motor vehicle accident. Her mother, a caring and health conscious individual, recognized the impact the accident left on her young daughter and turned to chiropractic for healing. From her first adjustment to the first sight of a spine model, Dr. Vega was fascinated by the idea of chiropractic. Since then, Dr. Vega has been working hard toward becoming a doctor to help others experience and reap the benefits of chiropractic.
Dr. Vega received her Bachelor of Science degree in Nutrition and Food Science from California State University of San Bernardino and continued her education to receive her Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Southern California University of Health Sciences.
