Dr. Alexander's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Alexander "Joshua Alexander, DO, MPH, is a board-certified neurologist with a special interest in the application of osteopathic manipulation for neurological disease associated with pain. Dr. Alexander provides inpatient care for individuals with conditions such as tinnitus, headache, concussion, movement disorders, stroke, chronic pain, neuromuscular disease and neurodegenerative diseases. Osteopathic medicine is alternative health care founded on the principle that many diseases are related to problems within the musculoskeletal framework. Osteopathic manipulation is hands-on, non-invasive and can be highly effective in the treatment of disorders associated with the nervous system, behavior and brain. Many of the patients that Dr. Alexander sees do not have adequate relief from their traditional medical management plans. Since joining the neurological faculty at UC San Diego Health, Dr. Alexander has developed the Department of Neurosciences’ clinical and research program in integrative neurology. He is an assistant professor and the associate program director of the Neurology Residency Program at UC San Diego School of Medicine. Dr. Alexander completed his residency training at the UC San Diego School of Medicine, and his internship at UC Irvine College of Medicine. He earned his medical degree from Touro University in Vallejo, Calif. He is board-certified in neurology. Dr. Alexander is a two-time, back-to-back winner of the Arnold P. Gold Foundation award for humanism in medicine and was the house officer of the year during his residency at UC San Diego. He has also won several awards for being an outstanding resident and teacher."
