Dr Paul

Dr. Haroun Arefi


Techniques I Use: Diversified adjusting to the spine and extremities, drop table, flexion-distraction table, myofascial release, corrective exercise, IASTM, breathwork correction.

About My Practice: My practice is anchored in finding out your “why.” I help you get out of pain, optimize your movement and stability so that you can do the things you love and that give you purpose. I look at you as more than the body part that is hurting. I treat through a holistic lens and work with you to address all contributing factors. I’ve worked with kids, the elderly, athletes, weekend warriors, gym rats, the work-from-home population and everything in between.

About Me: I was raised in San Diego, became a doctor of chiropractic in the Pacific Northwest, then lived in NYC for a few years before resettling back home. I played basketball internationally for a number of years and I still enjoy the game now. I love traveling the world and sipping on an espresso based beverage at a cafe.

Additional Languages: Dari/Farsi, Some Spanish


Dr. Paul Peterson

D.C., D.A.C.N.B.

Techniques I Use: Diversified adjusting, drop table, myofascial release, PNF stretching, functional medicine, functional neurology, whiplash rehabilitation, prenatal care.

About My Practice: My practice is heavily influenced by my own experiences. I had 2 hip replacements by age 22. After years of compensation and continued limitation I started chiropractic care as a patient. Totally changed my life in 6 months and I decided to make it a career out if it.

A standard session with me utilizes adjusting, muscle work and/or stretching, and probably some dry humor. Specialties in hip issues and joint rehab & TMJ. I enjoy working w/ runners, cross-fitters, & weekend warriors. Also a Board Certified Chiropractic Neurologist and enjoy working w/ concussion and chronic pain.

About Me: I enjoy backpacking, doing yoga, being in the ocean, traveling abroad, and being a “foodie.”

Additional Languages: Spanish


Dr. Paul Thenard


Techniques I Use: Diversified adjusting, drop table adjusting, extremity adjusting, myofascial release, proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) stretching, instrument assisted soft tissue manipulation, therapeutic exercises.

About My Practice: I like to see each patient as a puzzle, because I enjoy working with them to piece together their cause(s) of discomfort and then being able to look at the whole picture to create a tailored treatment plan for them both inside and outside of the office. My goal is to provide the best possible care to my patients by using a holistic approach to get to the root of the issue(s) for them. While each patient will have a different reason for coming in, I truly believe that everyone can benefit from chiropractic work and look forward to providing that to the San Diego community.

About Me: A born and bred Southern Californian, I graduated from CSU Long Beach with a degree in Kinesiology. After four hectic years of being a student athlete there (pole vaulting) and just under four years of graduate school, I am enjoying more of the slow life now. I love growing food (gardener), fishkeeping (aquarist), and playing fetch with our enthusiastic pooch (half German Shepherd, half Labrador Retriever), LunaBear, at the dog park.
