Spine specialist, Dr. William Hoffman shares a story of a 51-year-old, emergency room physician suffering with lower back and left leg pain.

A Note from Dr. Hoffman

My goal is to help as many people as I possibly can to regain and maintain their health through chiropractic care. I've dedicated my life to providing my patients with the best possible care. Each patient receives a thorough history and consultation. This is followed by a comprehensive examination and recommendation for care.

All patients are given the opportunity to not only get out of pain, but to correct any underlying structural problems that have contributed to their present health concern. Once their problem has been corrected, a maintenance or wellness program is tailored to each patient's individual needs.

I strongly believe in the maxim 'health is wealth.' Most people just don't realize, until it happens to them, how expensive it is to get sick. According to researchers at Harvard University, every 30 seconds in the U.S., someone files for bankruptcy as a result of the treatment they receive for a serious health problem.

The good news is, there are solutions that every one of us can do something to reduce our risk of bankrupting ourselves. The ultimate solution for our health care crisis is to have 'more people less sick.' The only way we can have more people less sick is to have more people choose better health through better living. I want to help you achieve that. By maintaining your neuro-musculo-skeletal system, this is an achievable goal.

In this episode, Sam Visnic explains what chronic pain is and how he helps his clients to uniquely address their pain.

Visnic has spent his life studying the fundamental aspects of human health with a focus on movement and clinical massage therapy. In a world of specialists, surgical procedures, drugs and quick fix remedies, he’s committed to finding and developing strategies that help people stuck at the “gap”.

Sam has studied dozens of methodologies for uncovering the root cause of aches and pains, some of which include pain science, hands-on soft tissue massage techniques, myofascial release, and coaching movement.

Deciphering WHEN to use different techniques with different people and situations, along with integration
of movement is the key to long term success with Sam’s incredible track record. Understanding the various elements that contribute to conditions and the power of communication and education makes his Release Muscle Therapy program unique from other hands-on therapy approaches.

Matt Parks, Founder and CEO of One Less CBD discusses CBD and how it can help reduce inflammation that causes pain.

MATT PARKS
FOUNDER & CEO

During his decade as Vice President at Williams Medical Supply, Matt’s efforts grew the company from a regional to national supplier while maintaining a steadfast promise to ensure new patients can be serviced. Understanding that his success was a direct result of building long-term relationships, he was imbued with a great appreciation for small business. Also during his time in medical supplying, he observed the rise of the opiate epidemic, a problem he knew stemmed in part from a lack of quality options in chronic pain and inflammation treatment. These experiences united seamlessly guiding his decision to create One Less CBD.

Dr. Derek Tenckhoff shares a story of an active young man who is sidelined with leg pain for a year.

Dr. Tenckhoff is a second generation chiropractor who has been involved in Chiropractic since he was born. He received his first adjustment from his father hours after being born. Growing up he competed in sports including: wrestling, judo, MMA, swimming, and baseball. Chiropractic adjustments helped to keep him healthy and at the top of his game. His passion for chiropractic began when he took more interest in his father's career as a chiropractor. He observed how patients would come to his father after seeing multiple doctors and being told that surgery was their only option. However, these patients would give his father a chance, and would be healed, no longer needing surgery. He knew then that chiropractic was what he wanted to do. He received his Bachelors in Psychology from Chico State University and his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Southern California University of Health Sciences. He is a Cox Certified doctor.

My Chiropractic Story

I initially sought Chiropractic are as a young college athlete. I was experiencing back and hip pain.I was born into a family of medical doctors so naturally this was the area that I first turned to. I quickly realized that a regimen of drugs and surgery were my only options available through that route. When I was finally introduced to Chiropractic, you can only imagine my relief and excitement. Not only did I get relief from my pain, but I had an increased overall feeling of well being.

Chiropractic Education

After completing my undergraduate degree and fulfilling the Chiropractic College prerequisites, I was off to Logan College of Chiropractic.

The main reason I chose Logan College of Chiropractic was the quality of their instructors. Logan’s instructors were shared with Washington University Medical School in St. Louis, Missouri. The education was second to none. We had the unique opportunity of being instructed and taught by the most knowledgeable doctors in the field. Logan College not only had the most knowledgeable instructors in the field but had the most skilled and experienced Chiropractors to teach the art of Chiropractic manipulation.
