Dr. Charlie Brennan grew up in the Bay Area, attending De La Salle High School in Concord. In high school, Dr. Brennan joined the rugby team which would later lead him to where he is today. He attended Chico State University where he studied Business Administration and continued to play rugby serving as team captain and being named a collegiate All-American. After his time in Chico he moved back to the bay area and joined a local rugby team, Life West. It was while playing for the Life West rugby club that Dr. Brennan was first exposed to chiropractic and saw immediate benefits in his recovery time and overall performance. Before the end of his first season with the team, Dr Brennan accepted an athletic scholarship and enrolled at Life Chiropractic College West. While at Life West, Dr. Brennan was able to continue playing rugby and was fortunate enough to play professionally and on the international stage traveling to Hong Kong with a USA Rugby development team.
Outside of rugby, Dr Brennan was one of the founding members of the new Life West Sports Performance Institute and was able to experience working on medical teams for AVP Volleyball, Nitro Circus World Games, Dew Tour, and with multiple rugby teams (including the Tonga national team). Dr. Brennan graduated magna cum laude from Life West in summer of 2019.
As an athlete, Dr. Brennan’s passion is sports medicine. He has experienced many of his own injuries and has seen first-hand how chiropractic decreases recovery time, successfully rehabilitates and prevents injuries, and improves overall athletic performance. Dr. Brennan takes a whole-body approach to chiropractic care by assessing and treating both muscles and joints and searching for dysfunctional movement patterns in these structures that may be causing pain. His treatments are focused on improving the structure of the body's musculoskeletal system to decrease pain and improve functional ability.
Dr. Charlie Brennan has a passion for health and wellness, and his main goal is to help patients live healthier, pain-free lifestyles. Whether you are an athlete looking for help with injuries and improving athletic performance, or you simply want to improve your quality of life, Dr. Brennan looks forward to helping you achieve your goals.
