Dr. Vincent Manfre, D.C. is a California native and currently resides in Reseda, CA where he has been The Joint’s local chiropractor in Porter Ranch, CA since 2013. Dr. Manfre has always had an interest in both health professions and natural healing disciples. Becoming a Doctor of Chiropractic was inspired by his time as a patient, when his chiropractor provided him with rapid relief and overall improved function. Because of his experiences as a patient, Dr. Manfre attended Cleveland Chiropractic College where he obtained his own Doctor of Chiropractic degree in 1989.
Dr. Manfre prides himself on his patient care. He has learned to treat a variety of patients ranging from infants to grandparents all with a range of symptoms including neck pain, lower back pain, migraines and sciatica pain. Dr. Manfre finds that being able to provide relief through the use of his chiropractic efforts and manual manipulation is one of life’s greatest gifts. He prides himself on seeing his patients with improved functionality and enhanced wellness.
When he is not working at The Joint Chiropractic, Dr. Manfre is typically either hiking, swimming or spending time with his wife, Mary, and their two sons.
Dr. James Van Grinsven became part of The Joint Chiropractic’s team of local healthcare providers in 2020 when he began serving residents in the Glendale area to continue doing the work he finds so gratifying.
“The best thing about working in the chiropractic field is helping people feel better,” he says. “The second-best thing is that helping other people feel better makes me feel better.”
Dr. Van, as he likes to be called, is a product of North Hollywood and worked previously in Studio City, Woodland Hills, Valencia, Lancaster, Granada Hills, Van Nuys, and downtown Los Angeles.
When he’s not fixing patients, he enjoys tinkering around the house and fixing things such as plumbing, appliances, and antique clocks. He also enjoys time spent with his four adult children, along with two cats and a golden retriever.
He earned a bachelor’s degree in biology from Cal State Northridge and a doctorate from Los Angeles College of Chiropractic, where he graduated summa cum laude.
Dr. Van knew chiropractic was his calling because of his first-hand experience as a teen. He was injured while playing high school football, but it was chiropractic that led to his successful recovery. “I was able to return to active status within a few days of treatment,” he says.
In Case You Didn’t Know
The one thing Dr. Van always keeps handy in his kitchen, he says, ‘is barbecue -- what else is necessary?”
If he could bring together any four people from history for the dinner party of his dreams, Dr. Van would include chiropractic founder Daniel David Palmer, clairvoyant Edgar Cayce, President John F. Kennedy, and Jesus Christ.
Dr. Van admits that fatherhood is pretty cool, and that the most interesting experience of his life was also one of his highlights. “I delivered one of my children,” he says.
