Welcome to Anchor Chiropractic Center, Corona, CA.

Welcome to my website.

Like me,  my website is a work in progress.

  • It Grows
  • It Changes
  • It is NEVER Finished

The purpose behind this website is twofold:

  1. To serve as a resource of information for existing patients and folks that have attended one of my outside lectures.
  2. For those that have never been to the office, to provide an introduction and extend an invitation to come in and see if I might be able to help you.

A Doctor’s Confession to Corona, Norco, the Inland Empire, and the World”

 And Why I Still Do What I Do…


Dear friend,

I want to give credit where credit is due. So, perhaps a confession can help clear the air so there’s no misunderstanding,  Before I talk about my confession, though, let me say a few other things first.

When I meet people in town, they usually say, “Oh, yeah, I know you, you’re Dr. Alex. I’ve seen your ad with that picture of you and your family.”  Well, perhaps I should tell you a little more about that photo, and why I use it in my ads.


Dr. Alex Birren,Chiropractor, and Family


Let’s start with me. I’m the lucky one with the sun glasses on.  The beautiful woman in my left is my wife Shannon. The tall gentleman on my right is my son Brendan Anchor Birren. I named the office after him. The young lady up front is my daughter Brenna.

Most parents like to brag about what their children do or achieve. While I have plenty to brag about, let me tell you what my children don’t have: ear infections, asthma, allergies, tonsillitis, frequent colds and flu, or ADHD. They have had chiropractic adjustments since they were born. It seems to good to be true, yet other parents are bringing their children in to see me for the very same reasons.

     Twenty years ago something happened that changed my life forever.

Back then I was an engineer for a construction company in the South Pacific.  My specialty was building piers, docks, breakwaters. It was a tough job.  I spent my free time either surfing or diving, which was also demanding on my body.  But all this activity caught up to me, and soon I found myself with a terribly painful back.   In fact, sometimes my back was so stiff and sore that I had to lie on the floor just to pull my pants and boots on. The pain from my back would often shoot down my leg.  I remember trying to do simple things at work that were just too painful for my back.  I was scared! I was worried about losing my job, worried about doing my fair share at work, and worried I would be like this for the rest of my life. I had to do something, because it just wasn’t getting better no matter what I did.

I decided to give a chiropractor a try. The chiropractor did an exam, took some films, and then “adjusted” my spine.  The adjustment didn’t hurt, it actually felt good. I got relief. In a short time I was doing much better, and again doing well at work, and again enjoying surfing in my free time instead of nursing my aches and pains. Chiropractic worked so well, and I was so impressed, that I went to chiropractic school myself.

It’s strange how life is, because now people come to see me with their back problems.  Also they come to me with their headaches, migraines, chronic pain, neck pain, shoulder/arm pain, whiplash from car accidents, carpal tunnel syndrome, ear infections, asthma, allergies, numbness in limbs, athletic injuries, just to name a few.

 Here’s what some of my patients had to say:

“I drive past hundreds of chiropractors along the way when I drive all the way from Temecula to Corona to see Dr. Alex, because he is the man with the magic hands.” ( Brian Deegan, Professional Freestyle Motocross Rider, X games gold medalist, Daredevil Extreme Motor Sport Personality)


“My profession is demanding on my body.  Dr. Alex keeps me in top form”- (Ronnie Faisst, Professional Freestyle Motocross Rider, Corona)

 “I’ve had headaches everyday since high school. Since I’ve been seeing Dr. Alex I haven’t had any!”-  (Nicole Arevalo, Riverside)

 “The pain is completely gone. No more problems in my low back at all!”-  (Rex Allingham, Corona)

 My confession is that I’ve never healed anyone of anything. What I do is perform a specific spinal adjustment to remove nerve pressure, and the body responds by healing itself.  We get tremendous results.  It’s a simple as that!             

Forty-six million Americans no longer have health insurance, and those who do have found that their benefits are reduced. That’s where chiropractic comes in. Chiropractic may actually help you save money.  Why?  Studies show that many people actually pay less for their health care expenses if they are seeing a chiropractor. Another way to save…studies show that chiropractic can double your immune capacity (your resistance), naturally and without drugs.  The immune system fights colds, the flu, and other sicknesses.  With a higher resistance, you may not be running off to the doctor as much.  This is especially important if you are  self-employed.

You Benefit from an Amazing Offer- Look, it shouldn’t cost you an arm and a leg to correct your healthIf you mention this article you will receive my entire new patient exam for 87$. That’s with X-rays, surface EMG and thermograph nerve scan, exam, consultation, and your first Chiropractic Adjustment ….the whole ball of wax. This exam could cost you $250 elsewhere. And you’ll be happy to know that I have a 35$ spinal adjustment plan that many people use. You see I’m not trying to seduce you to come see me with this low start up fee, then to only make it up with hidden fees after that.

Please, I hope that there’s no misunderstanding about quality of care just because I have a lower exam fee.  You’ll get great care at a great fee. My qualifications…I’m a graduate of Los Angeles College of Chiropractic. I’ve been entrusted to take care of tiny babies to pro athletes. After practicing in Menifee for three years, I opened my own practice in Corona, in 1999 . I just have that low fee to help more people who need care.
