Changes for Horrigan Sports Chiropractic and Soft Tissue Center

The Soft Tissue Center now has four separate practices under its umbrella. These practices are those of Drs. Joseph Horrigan, Steven Tunnell, David Velasquez and Jennifer Watters. You can read more about each doctor under the Staff section on this website. The office telephone number is (310) 574 -0395.

Dr. Joseph Horrigan was asked to lead a pilot study consisting of many research projects involving health care for a law enforcement agency in Los Angeles. This project is in conjunction with the Southern California University of Health Sciences. This project has greatly reduced his available weekly appointment time at the Soft Tissue Center, but he is still seeing patients and new patients. One of Dr. Horrigan’s subspecialties is the diagnosis of complex and complicated cases and he is still available for these cases. Some patients with complex cases have been searching for months to years to find a diagnosis and have seen a dozen health care providers to no avail. Many of these cases fall into one, or more, of several categories: 1) more than one diagnosis, 2) overlapping diagnoses, 3) atypical presentation of the diagnosis, 4) incomplete diagnostic work-up, 5) incomplete rehabilitation. These cases often require hours to obtain the history and perform the appropriate clinical examinations. Dr. Horrigan allocates the time for these cases. Dr. Horrigan is an out- of-network provider. Payment is expected to be provided when services are rendered. An invoice will be provided to the patient to submit to their insurance company for reimbursement according to the company’s fee schedule.

Drs. Steven Tunnell and David Velasquez have been with the Soft Tissue Center for 21 years.   This experience and exposure to elite sports as well as a wide range of case complexity have made them outstanding musculoskeletal clinicians. Drs. Tunnell and Velasquez are in-network providers for several insurance companies, and you can call to inquire about the status of the network participation. Dr. Velasquez is at the Soft Tissue Center Monday and Wednesday from 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM and Friday from 7:00 AM to 2:00 PM. He practices in Brea on Tuesday and Thursday.   Dr. Steven Tunnell is at the Soft Tissue Center on Tuesday and Thursday from 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM and practices in Sherman Oaks on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday mornings.

Dr. Jennifer Watters has provided acupuncture services for the Soft Tissue Center for over five years. Dr. Watters was recently hired to be the Sports Medicine Clinic Coordinator at the Southern California University of Health Sciences.   She still provides acupuncture services at the Soft Tissue Center on Saturdays from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM.
