Dr. Elliott is a native San Diegan who graduated from Torrey Pines High School in the 1980s. Dr. Elliott graduated Los Angeles College of Chiropractic (LACC) with a BS degree in Biology and a Doctor of Chiropractic (cum laude and dean’s list).


After receiving his license in 1991, Dr. Elliott opened Performance Chiropractic Center (aka Advanced Spine and Joint Care) in Vista, CA in 1992 and then Spine Decompression Center – the Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression side of the clinic in 2006.

Dr. Elliott has attended postgraduate education that produced certificates of achievement in X-ray diagnosis and interpretation; Receptor-Tonus Method (NIMMO deep tissue/myofascial release technique); achieved the status of Qualified Medical Evaluator and an Industrial Disability Evaluator for the state of California (2001-2007), is one of the only Kennedy trained and certified Spinal Decompression Therapy Practitioners in San Diego county; and qualified as a Level 1 Rehabilitation facility in 1997 by the Chiropractic Rehabilitation Association and the American College of Rehabilitation Science.

To further Dr. Elliott’s ability to offer the best care possible he has trained with Board Certified Chiropractic Neurologist and author Dr. Michael Johnson. Dr. Johnson trained under Dr. Frederic Carrick who is Chiropractic’s only Neurological Fellow. This new chiropractic neurological technique is called Brain Based Therapy (BBT) which is a treatment program based on Dr. Carrick’s work. The treatments are all neurologically based and clinically proven to help with chronic neck and back pain, fibromyalgia, restless leg syndrome, migraines, RSDS, numbness, balance disorders and other chronic health and neurological conditions that traditional medicine often has poor results treating.

Outside the Office

Outside of the practice Dr. Elliott enjoys golfing, surfing, and fishing with his son. He also enjoys wake boarding where he was seen on the front page of the local section of the North County Times on his birthday. Occasionally you will see a picture of him in the Western Outdoor News with a story of his latest catch. He is considered to be a true waterman.
