Meet Dr. Kauffman
Hi, I'm Dr. Dave Kauffman, owner and chiropractor at Kauffman Chiropractic.
I grew up with chiropractic care as part of my life. Going to the chiropractor was as normal to me as seeing the pediatrician. It was a great thing to have another avenue for wellness besides traditional medical care. Things changed for me at around age 16. I was playing tennis and I reached for a shot, and my whole lower back completely locked up. It was severe pain and it was hard to walk. I went from sprinting around the court to barely able to put one foot in front of the other, just from a twist in my back.
I wasn’t rushed to the ER or given a bottle of ibuprofen, my parents took me immediately to the chiropractor. After just a few visits I was not only pain-free but I was back on the tennis court doing the thing I loved.
That’s really when I knew that I wanted to be a chiropractor so I could help people the same way I was helped. I wanted to learn about the human body and how it all worked (and why sometimes it doesn’t work). I went to Penn State to get my bachelors degree in Nutritional Science, and then I went to Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis to get my Doctorate in Chiropractic.
I opened Kauffman Chiropractic in 2012. And quickly after I started practicing, I realized that different people need different types of chiropractic care. We now offer multiple types of chiropractic care, massage therapy, spinal decompression, and other therapies in our office. I find it very beneficial to mix and match different treatment options and therapies for different patients. I've enjoyed treating patients for over a decade now for conditions like back pain, neck pain, headaches, shoulder conditions, hip problems, and more
