San Diego Chiropractor
Welcome to Hoffman Chiropractic Center. If you’re looking to improve your health, decrease your stress levels, have better posture and get out of pain you have come to the right place. Dr. Kevin Hoffman offers a variety of techniques and services in which to facilitate your body’s ability to heal itself. First and foremost, it’s important to understand the role of the human spine. The spine and spinal related structures are the foundation of the musculoskeletal system. The spine’s job is to house and protect the spinal cord and nerves. The nervous system controls and regulates every cell, every organ and every system of your body. When your nervous system doesn’t work right, you don’t work right. And when you don’t work right, you’re hurt and can get sick. This can manifest itself as headaches, back pain or some other illness or disease. Nervous system compromise can result when the spine gets out of its normal alignment. This is called a subluxation. This is caused from injuries, poor posture, occupations, stress and sleep positions. These changes may not be noticeable at first and usually develop over time. Typically the spinal alignment will start to change slowly over time, outside of a trauma, and then get to a point to where it starts to hurt and interfere with your health.
Those affected first hand by auto accidents are well aware that this is one of the most traumatic injuries to the spine. If not treated quickly and properly they leave a lifetime of spinal and nervous system related problems. When a person is involved in a car accident they experience a whiplash injury no matter how minor the damage is to the car. The whiplash motion where the head and body are thrown in a violent manner causes subluxations which misaligns the spine. This in turn can lead to symptoms of headaches, back pain, arm and leg pain and difficulty sleeping. Sometimes these symptoms don’t show up for months. We at Hoffman Chiropractic Center specialize in management of whiplash injuries and have been doing this in San Diego for over 20 years.
Subluxation and whiplash can be treated effectively by using gentle Chiropractic techniques to restore the motion and position of individual spinal bones. Pain medications will not heal the inflamed ligaments and tendons caused by an auto accident or whiplash. These pills merely mask the symptoms, rather than treating the root causes. This can actually make the injury worse. Chiropractic treats the root causes of these problems and restores the natural curvature and alignment of the spine.

Dr. Kevin Hoffman
Among San Diego Chiropractors, Dr. Kevin Hoffman brings expertise to Hoffman Chiropractic Center. He received his Bachelor’s Degree in Recreation Rehabilitation and a minor in Psychology from San Diego State University. He received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Palmer Chiropractic College – West. He has been serving San Diego for over 20 years.
San Diego Nutritional Chiropractor Dr. Hoffman’s passions and interests have always been rooted in health care – he firmly believes that the body can heal itself. He was driven by the idea of helping people in a natural way using what we already have in our bodies, the inborn ability to heal ourself. While pursuing his undergraduate degree, Dr. Hoffman visited medical doctors, physical therapists, podiatrists and trainers and found that there scope of care was limited to treating symptoms and conditions. At that point he visited a Chiropractor and discovered the holistic approach in the healing process that happens from within the body. He observed the changes and healing that many Chiropractic patients experienced bringing people back to true health.
What We Do
Our practice initially focuses on getting you out of pain. Then we work towards postural and spinal correction to prevent the problem from reoccurring. We use a multi-faceted approach to your care. San Diego Chiropractor: Dr. Kevin Hoffman incorporates postural analysis, examination and x-ray findings to come up with a specific plan to get you to the point of health you would like to achieve.
In addition to proper care, it’s fundamental to incorporate a balanced nutritional diet. The human body requires a number of vitamins and minerals to function properly, and most of these can be found in the fruits and vegetables that we consume. However, the problem lies in the fact that most people do not consume enough of these core nutritional foods to get the number of vitamins and minerals their bodies need in order to maintain optimal health. Even if you have a good diet as I do the quality of food is not as good as it used to be due to the environment and depleted soils.
Through our nutritional analysis process, we provide our patients with a questionnaire that will help to determine exactly what your body needs in order to function at its optimal level. Our supplements only use the finest 100% whole food concentrates.
Our office also provides massage and soft tissue therapies. We have two in-house massage therapists that have extensive training and experiences. They have been licensed nationally and by the State of California. Massage therapy is available four days a week.
At Hoffman Chiropractic center we sit down with you and design a tailored program to fit your specific needs. Our goals are to enhance health and prevent diseases by correcting and preventing misalignments. This will allow the nervous system to function without interference.
It’s a part of life to be exposed to stress. There are three sources of stress. These are physical, emotional and chemical stress. Our body acts like a sponge and absorbs these stresses. This causes our body to become tense and results in trigger points and muscle spasms. This in turn causes subluxations and results in nervous system interference. However, by correcting the spinal misalignments and utilizing nutrition, exercise, orthotics, and correcting postures your body can more effectively deal with stress. Regular Chiropractic and massage therapy are effective methods to manage and alleviate our stress levels.
