More Info on the Clinic Owner Dr. Larry Basch

I am highly skilled and confidant in my abilities based on my extensive training and experience along with my work in numerous Multi-Speciality Clinics working along side various Medical professionals, such as Sports M.D.'s, Anesthesiologist-Pain Specialists, Physical Therapists, Acupuncturist, Physician Assistants, Podiatrist, Naturopaths, Athletic Trainers, Massage Therapist, Military Corpsmen. 
I have safely treated thousands of patients from newborns to professional athletes, to active duty U.S. and foreign military, to veterans to advanced seniors. I have extensive training in Clinical Nutrition, Sports Injuries & Spinal Rehab as well as Clinical Insurance review for the nations largest Chiropractic HMO. I use of state of the art clinical tools, such as Cox Flexion-Distraction, Gentle Non -Force ArthroStim, Class III & Class IV Laser, PEMF,  Activator, DTS Spinal Decompression, InfraSound Therapy, Erchonia Ionic Cleanse Detoxification Foot Bath, Pharmaceutical Grade, Professional Nutraceuticals, Sabre Science Bio-Identical Hormone Balancing Liposomal Cremes & Salivary Hormone Testing.

We would like to thank you in advance for this opportunity to introduce our clinic services. The Menifee clinic, has been a chiropractic office since 1968 at this same location in Sun City, CA. I took over this clinic in 2005. The office is located just off the 215 and McCall, behind the U.S. Post Office and BBVA Compass Bank on Bradley Ave., across from McDonalds.

In addition to my over 25 years of clinical experience as a Board Certified Chiropractor, I am one of about 80 chiropractors to have been selected and approved to provide chiropractic care to military personnel on a military base. In 2009, I was selected by the Department of the Navy to provide Chiropractic treatment at the Officers Candidate School,  US Marine Corps base, Quantico, Virginia. In 2010, I transferred to Twentynine Palms Naval Hospital, U.S. Marine Corps base, CA. Currently, I am the Chiropractic Clinic director at the U.S. Marine Corps School of Infantry, Camp Pendleton, CA.  I am one of only about 4000 chiropractors to complete the post-graduate program Certified Chiropractic Sports Practitioner (C.C.S.P.) and then to be nationally certified by American Board of Chiropractic Sports Physicians. I also have advanced post-graduate training in the treatment of whiplash injuries and spinal rehab. 

Additionally, I am one of a very few selected chiropractors to ever work as a Clinical Care Manager at American Specialty Health in San Diego, CA., the largest chiropractic HMO. While there, I provided evidenced based clinical review of proposed patient treatment, and new provider credentialing review and education on a nation level. 

As a Certified Nutrition and Wellness Consultant, I am a past member of the Scientific Advisory Board with Biogenesis Nutraceuticals, Inc. I have also worked for Sabre Sciences, a salivary hormone testing and bio-identical hormone creme lab made famous by Suzanne Summers. 
As a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps and the U.S. Army Illinois National Guard, I am a Veteran Affairs California Medical Center approved chiropractor an eligible to receive referrals from the Veterans Administration's Loma Linda Medical Clinic and the Sun City Clinic. I am a provider for most insurance plans including Medicare, Prime Care and most all PPO / HMO plans. I am a member of the American Chiropractic Association. 

I have practiced in and managed two of the busiest multi-discipline clinics in Chicago, IL. with daily clinical experience working alongside an Anesthesiologist/Pain Management M.D., Neurologist, Podiatrist, Naturopaths and Physical Therapists. I have also worked as a temporary / fill-in / vacation relief chiropractor, working in over 28 different clinics since 1993. 

Numerous clinical studies prove chiropractic manipulation is highly effective and more cost effective for acute low back pain. And after treating thousands of patients, including many professional and semi-professional athletes, as well as infants to seniors, I know Chiropractic care is safe, gentle and effective, with a very high level of patient satisfaction. I can offer you a valuable service as a part of your overall health and wellness.
