A Magna cum Laude graduate of The Southern California University of Health Sciences, Dr. Ida Spector joined The Joint in 2019. Raised in the Midwest, a second-generation chiropractor, chiropractic was a natural career choice. Relocating to San Diego, Dr. Spector was the chiropractor for a multi disciplinary trauma center before venturing in to private practice.
When educating patients about chiropractic, Dr. Spector references what she calls “spinal hygiene.” “Much like dental hygiene, caring for our spines is essential to achieving and maintaining optimum health. Unlike our teeth, we don’t see or pay much attention to our spines until a painful event occurs. Positively impacting their health and empowering patients with knowledge, make for my chiropractic ‘AHA!’ moments.”
Competing in Power and Olympic Lifting afforded Dr. Spector the unique opportunity of adjusting lifters from around the world. “That early career experience boosted my confidence as a practitioner.” Yoga is her current exercise of choice which she recommends to patients. The most rewarding aspect about practicing at The Joint for Dr. Spector is being able to deliver chiropractic care over expanded hours at a cost that makes it accessible to most.
Dr. Spector has a daughter married to a US Naval serviceman, they are the parents to her four grandsons, “the sunshine’s” of her life.

You’re often the best part of your patient’s day!”

What’s the coolest thing you’ve ever done, and why is it so cool? I competed in the Scottish Heavy Athletics (where you wear a kilt, and you do the caber toss and such) for a few years across Northern California. It’s an incredible sport to be part of-especially since I am, in fact, Scottish. Being part of such an old tradition is a really cool experience. Plus, it’s fun!
Please give us a call or check social media for Cj’s current schedule.
