Born and raised in Southern California, Dr. George Steven Martinez, D.C. clearly recalls from a young age, the awareness of family and friends who were chiropractic patients. Often, he joined his father as they attended chiropractor appointments. His father is now a retired law enforcement detective who frequently is in need of chiropractic treatments. Later during his own athletic sport endeavors as a former Div. I, collegiate athlete, Dr. Martinez sustained injuries that rendered him unable to play. After the need for chiropractic treatment himself, he understood firsthand the impact of routine quality care that allowed him to recover the ability to return and play at a higher level. From that point, his respect grew for the profession, where he could blend his athletic background, and interest to help others to achieve their personal health goals.
Dr. Martinez attended California State University Fullerton, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in both biology and kinesiology. He then went on to the Southern California University of Health Sciences, where he earned his Doctorate of Chiropractic Degree, graduating with honors Summa Cum Laude, and also obtained the distinction of Salutatorian. Dr. Martinez helped create the Spanish Medical Terminology Club. This contribution resulted in new curriculum. While obtaining his degree he was honored to personally be invited to partake in the American Chiropractic College of Radiology Conference in St. Louis, Missouri. He was given the coveted opportunity to complete the last year of clinical rotations at University of California, Irvine where he worked alongside other health care professionals. He has been acknowledged for the volunteer work completed at the Orange County Rescue Mission where he provided professional services to communities in need.
In his free time, Dr. Martinez has been a long-time fitness advocate. He is passionate about his own fitness goals and enjoys running and hiking with his Australian Shepherd, Indy.
