Meet Dr. Jan Teitelbaum

Chiropractor Mission Viejo, Dr. Jan TeitelbaumWhen he was in college, Dr. Jan was studying to become a pharmacist. Due to his connections there were multiple opportunities down this path. But upon discovering Chiropractic he was moved by the partnership of the doctor-patient relationship and explored the career.

Switching From Pharmacy to Chiropractic

The year was 1974, and those encounters at the chiropractic offices sealed the deal for Dr. Jan. “I came home and said, ‘I’m going to do that.’ I didn’t know what it was but didn’t care. It just felt right to me.” He left the pharmacy program, finished up a semester at the community college and enrolled at chiropractic school. “It changed my life and became one of my greatest life choices.” His sister also became a chiropractor.

Obtaining a Chiropractic Education

Dr. Jan earned his Doctor of Chiropractic from New York Chiropractic College. Through his years in practice, he has studied multiple techniques and modalities. “I call it my big back of tricks.” Every person presents as a unique challenge requiring different treatments specific to them. He has taken 40-50 postgraduate courses. He is certified in Pettibon Spinal Biomechanics, is an American Posture Institute Certified Posture Expert and has certification in Postural Neurology.

Connecting With Patients

Known as “the compassionate one,” Dr. Jan has a wonderful ability to connect with people out of love and service. He’s deeply passionate about helping to improve their health without negative side effects. “I enhance the body’s ability to work, but patients do the healing. We both play a role.” Dr. Jan considers the way he treats each person individually as his biggest success. “I look at people like a lock, and my job is to figure out the combination.”


Staying Active in Beautiful Mission Viejo

When he’s not at the practice helping patients, Dr. Jan enjoys living a healthy lifestyle, which includes getting regular adjustments, doing yoga and Pilates, swimming, walking, Stand Up Paddle Boarding and meditating. He is nutritionally conscious, though he does admit to having a sweet tooth! Dr. Jan has two beautiful grown daughters— Eve and Simone — who were born at home and grew up with chiropractic. He also stays busy professionally as a member of the International Chiropractic Association (ICA).
