Dr. Scott Levin began his higher education at Brandeis University, where he followed a pre-med path while completing his bachelor’s degree in classical archeology and ancient history. His passion for learning and interest in prevention and wellness-oriented healthcare led him to pursue his doctorate from Life Chiropractic College West (LCCW) in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Prior to his chiropractic education, Dr. Levin recognized the tremendous benefits of musculoskeletal care and even became a licensed massage therapist during his senior year of high school. This knowledge of the musculoskeletal system, alongside his desire to understand the intricacies of the human body, propelled him to the top of his class at LCCW. At graduation, he was honored with the distinctions of Summa Cum Laude and Valedictorian.
During his internship and residence at the LCCW Health Center, Dr. Levin’s abilities were recognized by the faculty, and he was asked to serve in the Radiology Department as a mentor for other interns completing their residence. He was later bestowed the 2007 Clinical Excellence Award for his work in the LCCW Health Center.
In private practice, Dr. Levin invited his colleague and business partner, Dr. Jason Miller, to join him in a detailed review of the literature pertaining to chiropractic’s validity as a noninvasive treatment for chronic disability, improving recovery rates, and pain reduction. Dr. Levin posed the question, “If you reduce a patient’s pain while also increasing their quality of life, how much more productive does that person become?”
The focus of Dr. Levin and Dr. Miller’s meta-analysis rapidly evolved to include the effects of pain and disability on the American workforce from a lost productivity time perspective. Their research culminated in the publication of Chiropractic Health Promotions, a referenced prospectus, which demonstrates that the investment of treating pain and disability with chiropractic care not only reduces lost productivity time and absenteeism but also yields substantial returns.
In practice, Dr. Levin’s clinical acumen helps many hundreds of patients each day. He is the co-clinical director of both PostureWorks, an advanced spinal and structural rehab facility that specializes in the evidence-based specialty chiropractic BioPhysics, and NutraWorks, a leading weight loss and nutritional counseling center that specializes in addressing the causes of metabolic syndrome and its component conditions.
Dr. Levin’s knowledge and ability to teach others the value of prevention and wellness-oriented healthcare practices make him a trusted and highly valued member of the San Francisco healthcare community. He considers this to be a blessing and is dedicated to being both a student and teacher for the duration of his professional career.
Scott is currently involved in an outreach program designed to teach parents and children in the San Francisco school systems about lifelong spinal health and proper musculoskeletal development.
