Dr. Glenn E. Cripe

Glenn graduated from U.C. Irvine in 1974 with his degree in Social Science. While attending UCI, he was a four year all-American in Tennis.

After injuring his low back and neck in the waves of Hawaii, he went to many different health care doctors ranging from orthopedists, chiropractors (traditional) as well as physical therapists to name a few. It was only when he received his first NUCCA adjustment in 1974 from Dr. Alvin Dettloff , he got tremendous relief within hours. At his suggestion, Glenn enrolled in chiropractic school in Pasadena. After graduation, he drove back to Chicago and interned with one of the founders of the work, Dr. Marshall Dickholtz, Sr.

He opened his office in April of 1978 with his mother, Marian, as the front office manager. Advancing quickly in the work, he was one of the first to become fully certified in the NUCCA work. Along with Dr. Al Berti of Vancouver, CA., he was awarded full certification in 1985.

Since that time, Glenn has shown his dedication to the work by serving as a member of NUCCA’s board of directors as well as chairman of numerous committees. Glenn now serves as one of the instructors at the national NUCCA conferences teaching a myriad of different classes including advanced biomechanics. He has also been the lead instructor at both Palmer Chiropractic College as well as Cleveland College of Chiropractic in Los Angeles.

He has been in Private practice in Newport Beach for the last 30 years.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Thank you for your excellent care of Bill and myself. With Bill in a permanent wheel chair, you have kept him comfortable and without pain. He is now 83!!! I am another one of your success stories. At 32 (now 81) I was in constant pain. The only time it wasn’t severe was when I was sitting, and being a mother of 4 that was a difficult situation. I put off seeing you as I thought you were a “quack!"

  • "I am pain free and have regained full strength and sensation back into my arm. I continue to see Dr. Cripe because I am a very active person who needs to remain pain free. Thanks to Dr. Cripe, I am now the person I was before the injury took place. Thanks Doc!"

  • "What an extraordinary experience it is coming to the Cripe Upper Cervical Center. Dr. Brian and his caring staff are the most professional and informative staff that I have seen in years. I’ve been battling neck issues for a year and a half seeing countless doctors and chiropractors. I received instant relief after my first adjustment and continue to improve daily. You truly are a Godsend."

  • "What a privilege for myself and my son to be patient of the week at the Cripe Upper Cervical Center. We are very happy to have known Glenn Cripe for 12 years now. Before I found Glenn Cripe no one could fix my neck, which is very prone to coming out of alignment. We’ve been coming here for years now and couldn’t be more pleased!"

  • "I feel better than ever! I can run faster, and excel in soccer with no headaches. I would like to grow up to be an upper cervical doctor!"
