Dr. Sebastian Kverneland is a native Norwegian chiropractor, born and raised in Stavanger, Norway. Kverneland is the founder of Scandinavian Health Institute (SHI) in Los Angeles, California. He studied Biochemistry and Genetics at the University in Stavanger, then later came to Los Angeles and got a Doctorate degree in Chiropractic from Southern California University of Health Sciences in 2014.
In addition to being a chiropractor specialized in modern, Scandinavian chiropractic, Dr. Sebastian Kverneland DC is studying the field of functional medicine at the Institute of Functional Medicine and will be certified in late 2020. This is to be able to provide even more thorough assessment of patient's health history and prognosis.
"Being Scandinavian is a big part of who I am. I was born and raised in Stavanger, Norway, where I grew up with 3 older brothers and a family filled with engineers. The engineering interest of the family all started with my great-grandfather founding an agricultural company, Kverneland, in 1879. With its high-quality and innovative ways of thinking, the company later became the biggest plowing company in the world. So growing up it was half-way expected that I would follow my family's career path. I didn't follow the traditional "engineering" path, but ironically being a chiropractor is very similar just for the mechanics of the body.
My goal is to bring Scandinavian, science-based chiropractic treatment to more people. It is important for me that my work and my practice reflects the values Scandinavians are famous for, innovation, quality, and integrity."
