Campbell Chiropractor :: Dr. James Pedreiro
High School Soccer Injury Lead Me to Chiropractic
“I was a skeptic,” admits Dr. James Pedreiro. “An appointment was made for me to see a local chiropractor, Dr. Wilmer O., for low back pain I was experiencing daily after a high school soccer injury 5 years earlier. I was reluctant but I couldn’t live that way any longer.” “It was incredible,” continues Dr. Pedreiro. “I’ll never forget that first adjustment. It was as if a huge weight was suddenly lifted from my shoulders and back. That’s when I decided I wanted to be a chiropractor.”
Dr. Pedreiro began his pre-chiropractic education in the Turlock/Merced area where he studied the basic sciences such as inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, biology, along with basic physiology and anatomy courses. After completing his study there, he was accepted at Life Chiropractic College West in Hayward, Ca. During his four years at Life West, courses included biochemistry, a major emphasis on anatomy and human physiology, X-ray, diagnosis, chiropractic adjusting techniques and patient care in the Life West Public Clinic.
After graduating in 1997 Dr. Pedreiro returned to the Modesto/Stockton area to work as an associate and eventually moved to San Jose in 2001 where he establish his practice.
