MEET THE DOCTOR
Dr. Martha Mekonen, D.C.
Dr. Marti is a Webster Certified Chiropractor.
Dr. Marti is caring, dedicated, and passionate about bringing families to wellness. Her mission is to educate, empower, and support women throughout their journey through motherhood. As a former Birth Doula and Behavioral Therapist that worked closely with children with autism, Dr. Marti is invested in helping people. She is determined to cultivate health and practical wellness in every patient.
Dr. Marti specializes in treating the World's Best Athlete, the pregnant body. The body undergoes drastic transitional changes as it prepares to nurture the growth of a child and as it recovers from the birth. It is important to complement these changes with physical and emotional care through chiropractic, massage, acupuncture, physical therapy, and therapy throughout this transitional period.
Benefits of Chiropractic Care during pregnancy:

Relieves neck, back, and pelvic pain and/or discomfort
Shorter labor and delivery times
Aids in recovery during postpartum
Pregnancy is not easy and is a very private, empowering yet scary journey - especially when things get complicated. It is important to not compare your journey with others but rather be open to other avenues that can help and aid the process. As a former Birth Doula, Dr. Marti is passionate about helping families through fertility. She helped write a multi-author book called (In)Fertility: Secrets, Struggles, and Successes with a group of holistic practitioners and mommy bloggers.
As a first generation Ethiopian-American, Dr. Marti grew up in a community where accessibility to wellness care was limited due to the lack of resources and awareness. She strives to provide access to care, especially to those that face racial disparities in the San Diego and the Los Angeles Areas.
