Chiropractor in Red Deer :: Dr. Norman Hoffman
“I am continually inspired by the remarkable changes that occur when subluxations are corrected and the body is given a chance to heal itself.”
Twenty-two years ago, my dad visited his medical doctor because of severe lower back pain that was preventing him from being able to do the manual labor associated with is job. His doctor told him that there was nothing he could do for him and that he would probably end up in a wheelchair within a few years. My dad didn’t accept this answer and upon the advice of a friend visited their chiropractor. Right away he experienced great relief and his back pain went away in a short time.
The decision to become a chiropractor
I attended the spinal care class given by my dad’s chiropractor and was truly impressed with everything I saw. I liked the idea of being able to help peoples health without drugs and surgery. I was planning on becoming either a medical doctor or a dentist and at the age of 14 I decided that chiropractic was the perfect career for me. I am so glad I did.

Chiropractic & life changing results
“I love seeing life changing results every day. I get to see patients who have lost all hope completely regain their health. I love helping children. My job means I get to see a non-verbal autistic child speak for the first time and a desperate moms face light up when her colicky baby sleeps through the night for the first time in two years, ” says Dr. Hoffman.
Every day is a new story and someone gets a part of their life back that they didn’t know was possible. It is truly wonderful to witness these changes and the smiles on the faces of my patients. I get excited every day to go to work and say, “What wonderful thing do I get to see today?”

“I want to be a good role model to my patients. I exercise daily, eat right, and get adjusted once a week. All of this has allowed me to lose over 40 pounds and keep it off for the last ten years. It’s my goal for myself and my family to stay off prescription and non-prescription drugs and find as many natural ways to keep healthy as possible.”
