Dr. April Goebel, D.C. is a Chiropractor at Lakewood Galleria

Dr. Goebel is a Southern California native and grew up in the South Bay. She graduated from Cleveland Chiropractic College Los Angeles in 2003.

Dr. Goebel came to The Joint in July of 2020, after many years in private practice in both Torrance and Oceanside. She has numerous certifications in functional nutrition, hormone balancing, hypnotherapy, Webster Technique for pregnant patients, and is also a certified medical thermographer.

Dr G or as her pediatric patients call her, Dr. April, is dedicated to helping families. She decided a little later in life that she wanted to change career paths. “I knew I wanted to work in a profession that truly helped people and had a positive impact on their lives. My mom is a retired nurse, and I was a certified medical assistant years ago. I wanted to do more than either of those professions could offer.”

She successfully managed the demands of attending school while being a single mom. Her daughter was just six years old when she started her undergraduate work, and it was a great accomplishment to finish school while raising her. She found out during her internship that her daughter had scoliosis and she has been under chiropractic care ever since. “She rarely gets sick and if she does, she bounces back very quickly because she gets regular adjustments. Keeping my loved ones healthy in this challenging world is important to me.” Her daughter who is also in a health-related field says, “I don’t know what I would do without chiropractic.”

Why Chiropractic? Dr. April was attracted to Chiropractic as she has a helping nature and takes a hands-on approach to most everything. She loves to help better other people’s lives and Chiropractic allows her to do that. She enjoys adjusting the whole family so that everyone is healthy and has less stress. “How great to be able to help families in this way!”

In Case You Didn’t Know

When she wants a comforting snack, she is going to pop her own popcorn and add avocado oil, salt, and probably a little pepper. “If you’re going to do it you may as well do it right.” She likes to make natural remedies from essential oils in her spare time and if you think you have seen the doctor somewhere before it could be on TV. She has worked in front of the camera and as a precision driver for television and motion pictures.

Dr. Goebel’s motto is, “Think before you speak.”
