You could say Chett Mallett is a doctor of alignment, literally and figuratively. There's the all-important human spine for one thing, but there's also the question of whether people have aligned their lives in ways beneficial to their health. As a practitioner of functional medicine, the chiropractor Mallett examines a patient's lifestyle, diet, and behaviors for insights into how the whole body — but especially joints, nerves and muscles — can position itself for optimal health and to prevent chronic pain.
"We are self-healing and self-regulating organisms," Mallett says of his medical philosophy. The Los Angeles-based chiropractor is a healer by nature, and some of the most satisfying moments of his profession confirm his beliefs about the human body and spirit — herniated discs in the vertebrae mending on their own and people taking their first steps after traumatic injuries.
