Dr. Morita

Stephen Morita, D. C.

Born and raised in Santa Monica, Stephen Morita was aware that his father had regular chiropractic visits, but upon accompanying him for the first time was enthralled. He became fascinated in natural health. It wasn’t until his mother passed from colon cancer at age 39, however, that he knew he wanted to be a chiropractor. The realization of the body’s direct connection between healthy organs and a healthy spine spawned Steven Morita’s desire to help change people’s lives for the better.

After graduating from Los Angeles College of Chiropractic in 1988, he began his life’s work at Furnish Chiropractic in Costa Mesa. In 1993 he moved his practice to Back Bay Chiropractic and purchased the clinic the following year. Inspired to help more people, he boughta second clinic, Millcreek Chiropractic in Laguna Hills, 4 years later and served patients in both centers simultaneously. Later, his continuing interest in alternative health lead him to study Naturopathy and become a certified Naturopathic.

With the birth of his youngest son in 2000 and feeling the desire to spend more time being a father, he sold Millcreek and has been practicing exclusively at Back Bay Chiropractic for the past 9 years. Dr. Stephen Morita specializes in many Chiropractic Techniques and procedures, including Diversified, Gonstead, Applied Kinesiology, Sports Chiropractic, Spinal Corrective Therapy, Myofascial Release Techniques, and Wellness Care.

Placing a high value on family, Dr. Morita spends much of his free time with his 3 children, Tracy, a police officer in Hawaii, Russell, a student at Fullerton College, and Kameron, little league baseball player and future president of the United States. Dr. Morita also continues his family’s martial arts tradition by practicing at the United Studios of Self Defense and possesses a Black Belt in Shaolin Kenpo Karate.
