Dr. Jeremy Dorris, D.C. is a Chiropractor at Escondido

Dr. Jeremy Dorris joined The Joint Chiropractic team in Escondido in June 2018 and is excited to help his local Escondido, CA community. He was born and raised in San Diego, CA and is excited to share his knowledge and expertise with you.

Dr. Dorris originally became interested in chiropractic care as a profession because he knew he wanted to help others lead healthier, happier lives in a natural and holistic way. This led him to attend Palmer College of Chiropractic in Iowa, where he obtained his doctor of chiropractic degree in 2009.

Over the course of his professional career Dr. Dorris has learned to serve a range of patients from infants to grandparents, with various cases including neck pain, upper and lower back pain, migraines and headaches, sciatica, arthritis and more.

Dr. Dorris says the best thing about working in the chiropractic profession is having the ability to heal others with his two hands and without the use of medications.

Dr. Dorris believes one of the coolest things he has done thus far is ride his bicycle from San Diego, CA to St. Augustine, FL. It took him 63 days, and was one of the most rewarding things he has ever done.

When Dr. Dorris is not working at The Joint Chiropractic, he enjoys spending time with his wife, Andrea, and their two kids at their home in Santee. They can also be found paddle boarding, hiking and hanging out at the beach.
