Education and Expertise

Dr. Perman's Journey

Dr. Perman attended Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts where he pursued a Bachelor of Science in Behavioral Neuroscience, graduating cum laude with additional honors. While in college he worked as a research assistant in the Neurobiology Department at Harvard Medical School. He heavily considered pursuing his Ph.D in Neurobiology, but realized he preferred to work directly with people rather than spend his time in the lab. His unending interest in neuroscience led him to pursue his expertise in neurological rehabilitation. He received his Doctorate of Chiropractic (DC) from Life Chiropractic College West where he graduated Salutatorian, summa cum laude. He then completed his post-doctoral board certification in Chiropractic Neurology (DACNB) through the American Chiropractic Neurology Board. The majority of his education in Clinical Neuroscience and Chiropractic Neurology (sometimes referred to as “Functional Neurology”) was obtained through the Carrick Institute for Graduate Studies.

After school, Dr. Perman was fortunate to practice as an associate under Dr. Adam Harcourt, DC, DACNB, FACFN, FABVR, who is one of the leading experts in non-invasive migraine rehabilitation. In 2018, he helped build Dr. Harcourt’s Beverly Hills location, where he served as lead clinician. In 2019, under Dr. Perman’s leadership, his office was awarded the Beverly Hills Golden Palm Award for Most Innovative Small Business. In 2021 he founded Virtual Brain Rehab by Perman Chiropractic Neurology, PC, so that he could bring effective neuro-rehab strategies to anyone, anywhere.

In 2022 he was hired by Life Chiropractic College West as the inaugural Director of Functional Neurology. In this role he has the opportunity to teach chiropractic students and oversee Nexus Brain Center where chiropractic interns have the opportunity to practice in a state-of-the-art brain rehabilitation clinic prior to their graduation. Dr. Perman’s ongoing education, the priceless practical training he has received, and his passion for helping people has molded him into the well-rounded practitioner he is today.

Dr. Perman’s curiosities related to human neuroanatomy and neurophysiology have led to his love of treating concussions, migraines, and dizziness/vertigo disorders. Almost everyone can improve with the right treatment approach. Dr. Perman wants to help you find that approach, whether it be with him, or with another practitioner that can better suit your needs.

Dr. Perman grew up in Long Island, New York, and has now settled in the San Francisco Bay Area. He has always loved the performing arts and everything to do with food. In his free time, he enjoys seeing live performances, cooking, and trying new restaurants and cuisines. He also founded and operates an app development company, AR Health Solutions, LLC. His goal is to build affordable apps that help healthcare and fitness professionals be more objective with their assessments. He currently has two projects in development.
