About Us

Here at Your Optimal Health Chiropractor, we take your brain health very seriously. Dr. McLaine knows firsthand about the changes that can happen with a TBI or mTBI. Dr, McLaine is a TBI survivor who has been for a ride on the medical merry-go-round and knows what it is like to experience a near-fatal brain injury.

Dr. McLaine spent over 18 months out of work in 2009 after he was nearly killed by his brain injury . During his recovery, Dr. McLaine found his passion for helping other survivors and others who have been injured to recover their lost health. He embarked on a 5 year journey that included becoming a Holistic Health Coach, Doctor of Chiropractic, Functional Neurology post-graduate student, Functional Medicine specialist, and a functional bio-mechanics specialist.

Dr. McLaine also understands the confusing world of autoimmunity and teaches his patients about gardening their way to a healthy inner ecosystem as a way to restore their optimal health. Dr. McLaine lives with Celiac Disease and knows how to teach patients to navigate the treacherous gluten-free world.

Dr. McLaine believes strongly in evaluating his patient's functional bio-mechanics by using a sophisticated 3D digital imaging system to capture accurate and precise assessments of their feet while they stand and while they walk.

Here is a copy of a Youtube video from the Great Diet Debate at the Functional Medicine Discussion Group of Santa Monica from November of 2016.

Dr. McLaine got the fortune of arguing the plant-based diet benefits during a debate between a Paleo advocate, Mediterranean advocate, and a ketogenic advocate.
