Dr. Travis Conley DC, D.A.C.B.S.P.
L.A. Chargers Head Chiropractor
Dr. Travis Conley graduated from Southern California University of Health Sciences in 2004 and completed his Diplomate from the American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians in 2010.
Since then Dr. Conley has worked with multiple teams at the high school and college level and is currently serving as the Head Chiropractor for the Los Angeles Chargers.
Dr. Conley's passion for sports, rehabilitation and treating individuals with athletic like injuries has been a life long process. Dr. Conley will often joke with patients that he understands their injuries so well is because he has abused and used his body over the last 40+ years and has suffered some of the same injuries. That experience now lends to his vast knowledge of not only treating injuries, but also his ability to detect movement dysfunctions, correct them and get you back on your way to exercise, sports or play.
His background in sports and as an athlete and treating doctor is extensive. Dr. Conley utilizes Active Release Technique (ART) for treating all types of soft tissue injuries and functional movements utilizing Functional Movement Screen (FMS) and Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) as well as a focused approach to correcting dysfunctional movement patterns within all of us.
Dr. Conley focuses on movement and positioning as it pertains to athletes, weekend warriors and everyone in between. Dr. Conley carries a wide variety of certifications and designations that have helped him gain an amazing understanding of human movement, how to identify poor movement, correct it and keep you moving at the highest level possible whether you are a high level athlete or weekend warrior.
Dr. Conley’s philosophy is simple, pain is never normal! Each of us, at some point in their lives, moved well and then at some point functional movement and stability were lost. These patterns can be taught and re-learned to allow you to move “normally” and without pain all over again.
The human body takes work and consistency to maintain.
Dr. Conley specializes in teaching you how to do both!

For those who suffer from debilitating pain or chronic ailments, and refuse to rely on pills or surgery, there is hope. The key is to work regularly with a Certified Massage Therapist who focuses on Medical Massage. But they mustn’t stop there. Pain and other symptoms are signs of imbalance and disharmony throughout the body. One must address all angles of their health to achieve optimum well-being. This may include Internal Medicine (Functioning of bodily systems, organs, digestion, diet, and nutrition), Skeletal Health (Alignment and Posture), Muscle and Flow (Muscles, Energy, Circulation, Blood Flow) and of course making changes in one’s lifestyle (Exercise, Stretching, Changes at work or at home.)
