About us

Dr. Ken Iwaki, born and raised in Los Angeles, has been practicing as a Chiropractor in Artesia since 1981. He attended Whittier College and received his Bachelor of Arts degree in 1977. He later earned his Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.) from Cleveland College of Chiropractic in Los Angeles in 1981.

At the beginning of his education, he pursued a career to be a dentist. However, Dr. Iwaki chose his career as a chiropractor because of his experience with low back pain. After years of playing college football as wide receiver and a significant injury to his lower back, he was unable to find relief until he saw a Chiropractor.

After 20 years of being on the sideline, Dr. Iwaki recently retired last year as team chiropractor of Long Beach Poly High School Football Team. He attended Long Beach Poly home and away games only missing 3 games of 220 games in his Poly Football career. He, not only tended to players and coaches on the sidelines, but also welcomed them to his practice.

I am very grateful to be included as part of the Long Beach Poly High School football and track programs for the past 20 years. It has been a great privilege to watch these athletes perform during high school and also become outstanding citizens in the community. Go Jack Rabbits!
Dr. Ken Iwaki

Dr. Iwaki, a member of the California Chiropractic Association, attends seminars regularly to stay updated of the latest chiropractic technology and research. Outside the office, Dr. Iwaki spends all of his free time with his wife Cindy, and his adult autistic son, Kyle.

At the beginning of 2017, Dr. Iwaki’s oldest son, Kevin, passed away on January 13, 2017. He was suddenly diagnosed with Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia (APL) and despite aggressive medical care he passed away after several days of being put on life support. Kevin worked as a library archivist at Nickelodeon Studios. In January of 2018, Nickelodeon dedicated its opening of its archives and library to Kevin after his passing. Kevin was 30 years old.

Dr. Leslie Toguchi, Dr. T, worked for Dr. Ken Iwaki as an acupuncturist since 1986. He worked a total of 38 years practicing therapeutic treatments for patients with acute and chronic pain, sports injuries, and a specialty in pain management.

Dr. T announced his retirement in the March of 2015. He, now, enjoys spending time with his wife, Ethel, his daughter, Michel, and recently married son, Eric.

I would like to personally thank Dr. T for his many years of service. He has given our patients reliable care year after year with respect and kindness. Our door is always open. Enjoy your retirement!
