Health Care Philosophy
To help you maximize your ability to heal from an injury, pain or health problem, to identify underlying conditions that you may not feel yet, or to achieve optimum health and peak performance levels, the following scientific and philosophical premises should be applied to your health care and lifestyle.
1. Innate Intelligence
You have, within you, an Innate Intelligence. Present from the moment you were conceived, this intelligence grew you from 1 cell into over 80 quadrillion cells that were organized and specialized to keep you healthy and functioning at your highest level throughout your lifetime. This Innate Intelligence guides the processes in your body that turn food into cells, eliminate waste products, coordinate muscle contraction and communicate with or without your conscious thought to every cell, tissue and organ of your body via your nervous system. As long as there is no interference to this system, you have the capability to heal, feel great, be healthy and function well for a lifetime. Nurture this Intelligence for the development of your human potential and you will set personal records in all areas of your life.
Unfortunately, there can be interference to the communication and expression of this intelligence within your body. This interference causes dis-ease, weakness, and imbalances within your nervous system that can cause all types of immediate health problems. Or, this interference can lie dormant and asymptomatic for decades, leading to severe health conditions, chronic pain, deterioration and disease down the road.
Nerve Interference in the spine is called a vertebral subluxation. Lifestyle Interference is a result of poor health habits such as overeating, poor nutrition, excessive drinking, taking prescription or non-prescription drugs, or sitting too much. Environmental Interference is caused by toxicity from air, food, water, or chemicals, as well as accidents or natural disasters. All three types of interference can cause pressure in your spine and nervous system and affect your health on every level.
Using a variety of chiropractic techniques, we will work to remove this interference from your body so that you can heal quickly, stabilize, regenerate and achieve optimum health and peak performance levels for a lifetime.

Mission Statement and Core Values
We believe every living thing contains within it the ability to self-heal and self-regulate, a property known as innate intelligence. We believe every person deserves optimal life expression of innate intelligence. Optimal life expression can only be achieved through proper function of the nervous system; that is when the nervous system is free of interference caused by vertebral subluxation. Proper nervous system function can only be achieved by being checked for subluxation and adjusted regularly by a chiropractor - it is not achieved through drugs and surgery. It is not achieved through physical modality. Therefore, we believe every man, woman, and child should be checked and adjusted regularly by a chiropractor for subluxation.
Inner Strength Chiropractic is the commensurate institution for one to be checked and adjusted in the Santa Barbara Community. We intend to express this message through open heart space communication from an honest and loving place. As this message spreads, it helps to cultivate vitalism and heal mind, body, spirit, and planet.
It is our goal to always role model these principles in our own lives through collaboration with our community partners. We are committed to lifelong education through attending the latest chiropractic seminars and applying our knowledge in our practice and community.
"Chiropractic is a wonderful, natural cure! My two year old daughter had never been to see a chiropractor but I wanted to take her to see Dr. Jacob so that when the day came that she need to have an adjustment she would feel comfortable with the process. She is shy and was very hesitant to get on the table or have Dr. Jacob touch her. Dr. Jacob talked very calmly to her and got her to relax and lay down. She seemed to enjoy it and later wanted to adjust me. Well the day came where she needed an adjustment.
She had a low grade fever and chest congestion for two weeks. She knew what to expect with her adjustment. Within the hour, her fever subsided and she was running around. She still had some congestion. However, an adjustment two days later seemed to have cleared that up too. "Chiropractic is a wonderful, natural cure without the bad effects of medicaton." Thank you, Dr. Jacob."

"I felt immediately more balanced! Jacob is a gentle and generous person. I've never had a chiropractic adjustment done before and Jacob explained to me so carefully the health-enhancing effect of correcting spinal joints. I didn't actually know the importance. Right away, from the very first adjustment I felt the benefits. I felt immediately more balanced and a very nice flow of energy run in my spine, up to my head. It was just so relieving! I strongly encourage everyone to try J. Martin's treatments!"

"I am beyond grateful to Dr. Jacob at Genuine Chiropractic for getting me in on very short notice while traveling through Santa Barbara. A few days into my travels, with terrible back pain that was not subsiding, I reached out to Genuine Chiropractic early Monday morning. I was amazed at how quickly Dr. Jacob responded to my voicemail and how he was able to fit me in for later that morning with a follow up the next morning.
My experience at Genuine Chiropractic was more supportive than I could have imagined. The office itself is beautiful and feels like a very healing space. After those two adjustments, my back pain substantially improved. This helped me enjoy the rest of my trip and feel much more comfortable during two very important interviews that week.
Dr. Jacob is a very talented chiropractor. He provides very precise and effective chiropractic care with compassion and makes you feel very comfortable with the whole process.
I personally have a father who has practiced chiropractic for over 30 years and am particular about recommending chiropractors. I highly recommend Dr. Jacob to anyone in the Santa Barbara area. I wish I could continue my care at Genuine Chiropractic, but live on the east coast.
I am so appreciative to have found this gem of a chiropractic office, thank you Dr. Jacob for your superb care!"
