Dr. Anjali Agrawal

“It all started with a cold.”


Dr. Anjali was pursuing her life-long dream of going into healthcare by entering the pre-med program at UCSD. After her Freshman Year, she returned home for the summer and started looking for a summer job. Through some coincidental events, Dr. Anjali started working for a Chiropractor as a Receptionist and started receiving chiropractic adjustments. Prior to this job, Dr. Anjali actually had no idea that Chiropractors were even involved with healthcare, but quickly developed an interest in this holistic whole-body approach. One morning when Dr. Anjali was supposed to go to work, she woke up with some very sniffles. She called her boss to inform her, and the Chiropractor asked her to come in for an adjustment, and then she could go home. Dr. Anjali went to get her adjustment, and as if by magic, by the time she walked back out to her car, her sniffles were gone and she felt great!

Even though she had seen many patients having marked improvement in their health, Dr. Anjali's own experience with the effectiveness of the adjustment with her cold was the catalyst for ultimately pursuing a career in Chiropractic.

Dr. Anjali started with a passion for working with families to help them conceive and providing holistic prenatal and postnatal care, as well as working with newborns and children of all ages.

Over the last nearly 10 years, her passion has widened and she now continues to help families locally as well as entrepreneurs and corporate businesses around the world.

“My biggest passion is to help others move well, eat well, and live well.”


Dr. Anjali Agrawal's ultimate purpose for growing and expanding her online wellness business and chiropractic practice is deeply rooted in her family, comprising her husband and two young daughters.

Motivated by a desire to provide a better life for her loved ones, Dr. Anjali has embarked on a journey driven by a passion for holistic healthcare. Her initial introduction to chiropractic care, through a serendipitous summer job, ignited a newfound fascination with its whole-body approach. This transformative experience, coupled with the profound impact it had on her own health, solidified her commitment to sharing the benefits of chiropractic care with others.

As she navigates the path of entrepreneurship and builds her online presence, Dr. Anjali remains steadfast in her dedication to not only her professional growth but also to creating a legacy of well-being for her family and community.

Through her endeavors, she seeks to inspire others to prioritize their health and nurture their bodies, echoing the values she holds dear within her own family.

Dr. Anjali extends an abundance of gratitude to her family for steadfast support of Back in Balance Health. Their dedication fuels her passion for holistic wellness.

Alleviating Upper Trap Tension: Simple Strategies for Daily Relief

The Universal Stress Point: Understanding Upper Trap Tension

Do you often find yourself battling tension in your upper traps? This problem is far from unique.

Known as the universal stress point, the upper trapezius muscles are frequent casualties of our modern lifestyle, particularly for those of us spending countless hours in front of computers.

The setup of your workstation, especially the position of your keyboard and mouse, plays a pivotal role in this tension. If these devices are placed higher than your elbows, causing you to engage your upper traps unnecessarily, it's time to reassess your workspace ergonomics.

Alleviating Upper Trap Tension: Simple Strategies for Daily Relief

A Simple Yet Effective Upper Trap Stretch

To combat this discomfort, here's a straightforward stretch you can do, whether you're sitting at your desk or standing up during a quick break:

  1. Gently tilt your head to one side, aiming to bring your ear closer to the shoulder.

  2. Enhance the stretch by gently pressing down on your head with the hand from the same side.

  3. Hold the position for about 20-30 seconds, ensuring you're not pushing into pain, then switch sides and repeat.

Incorporating this stretch into your daily routine can make a significant difference in alleviating the persistent tension in your upper traps.

Beyond the Stretch: Making Meaningful Changes

Remember, it's the small adjustments in our daily habits that culminate in substantial improvements in our overall comfort and health. Reevaluating the ergonomics of your workspace and introducing simple stretches like the one above can help ease the stress points that accumulate throughout our day.

I brought my daughter when she was just 10 days old to see Dr. Agrawal for help with latching. My husband and I were at our wits end, so our doula suggested that we see Dr. Agrawal. Within hours it was like we had a new daughter.


I came to see Dr. Anjali for some sudden, very intense back pain. My mother-in-law has been seeing Dr. Anjali for years and I finally got to experience the low force approach to chiropractic that my MIL has been raving about. I feel so much better, and I feel like there’s hope for me to live pain-free!


I feel human again! I’m able to sleep much more deeply at night and I am forgetting that I had pain even one week ago.
