Meet Red Deer Chiropractor Dr. Norman Hoffman

Red Deer, Alberta Chiropractor : Dr. Norman Hoffman

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,”

Dr. Hoffman.

Choosing Chiropractic

Thirty-four years ago, Dr. Hoffman’s 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. The 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. His 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.

Dr. Hoffman attended a spinal care class given by his dad’s chiropractor and was truly impressed with everything he saw, particularly enjoying the idea of being able to help improve someone’s health without drugs and surgery. Though he was planning on becoming either a medical doctor or a dentist, at the age of 14, he decided that chiropractic was the perfect career for him, and he’s thankful every day for that decision!

Red Deer chiropractor Dr. Hoffman began his two-year pre-chiropractic education at Red Deer College.

    Dr. Hoffman is very good at what he does, I’ve never been to a chiropractor that has all the little tricks to figure out what is out. I no longer get my very painful headaches so I’m happy.

    The word chiropractor I feel does not best describe Dr. Hoffman. He does so much more than this.  He is probably one of the best health practitioners I’ve been to.  He has helped get my health totally back on track.  Without his help I wonder where I would be.
