Dr. Zach was fortunate enough to serve on a chiropractic mission trip to the Dominican Republic. This experience opened his eyes to the massive numbers of underprivileged people around the world. It quickly became his goal to not only provide chiropractic care, but to build a community of people with charitable hearts. He instantly connected with Hands for Life’s mission and sought to build a humanitarian community within the San Diego and Tijuana area, with the larger objective to travel back to the Dominican Republic and serve those in need. Although many see San Diego as being a wealthy population, there are thousands upon thousands of people who are in dire need of the power of chiropractic care without the ability to obtain it for various reasons. Hands for Life UTC (University Town Center) provides those in dire need access. “You never know how far reaching something you think, say or do today will affect the lives of millions tomorrow”. –B.J. Palmer
The Hands for Life UTC team was brought together with the core characteristic of charity. We provide healthcare to those with financial hardships and educate the disadvantaged about basic healthcare. Our communities both locally and globally are family driven. Our children are our world’s future, without health no one’s future is bright. We help all ages, but focus on educating the youth to breed a culture of healthy decision making for the future.
Every experience throughout life has directed us to where we are currently. Some kept us on the same path, some have altered it, some have been good, some bad, and some are nothing more than memories. Hands for Life UTC was created with one main objective in mind, to help others. A study was performed where millions of people around the world were asked, “why are we on this earth?”. The resounding answer was to help others. Hands for Life UTC was founded because Dr. Zach was given the marvelous opportunity to have traveled to the Dominican Republic on a mission trip where he was able to deliver chiropractic adjustments to those in need. This trip altered the path for all involved and caused him in particular to create a vision. From that moment on he has sought ways to develop his mission and begin connecting with others that have similar goals. The group of individuals below bring not only knowledge and the desire to help others, but unique skill sets that when combined allow us to serve at the highest level to those in need through chiropractic care, implementation of safe water supply, better schooling structures, and overall education.
To create a natural avenue for the underserved, financial hard-shipped population throughout the world to regain their health through:
- Chiropractic care creating an efficiently running nervous system,
- Accessible clean water and healthy food,
- The opportunity to have a superior education so that each person can reach their god given potential and create a healthier world tomorrow.

We’re a family of chiropractors serving to make the world a healthier, more connected place. Our team understands the disparity in healthcare across the globe. There are some communities with access to excellent chiropractic care. There are other groups of people who have no way of receiving the benefit of chiropractic care. Our team came together to try and shrink the gap between the “haves” and the “have not’s”.
