Dr. Crystal Galvan was born and raised in Goleta, and as a young girl she spent many hours in her father’s chiropractic office in old town. She was inspired by the joy her father felt in helping his patients – and by a particular case when a young girl who was unable to walk without assistance, was able to walk again and have a normal life under her father’s care. After practicing locally for many years, she wanted to start her own practice, where she could realize her own expectations to serve the community as a health leader and educator. She attended the Self-Employment Training course in 2007, participated in the initial cohort of Thrive in Five in 2010, and received a WEV loan in 2013. Owning Crystal Chiropractic allows her to be in control of her professional and personal passion – to bring the benefits of prenatal chiropractic care to women.
