Dr. Kuhlman came to Chiropractic in a different fashion than most. Because of his love of sports, health and fitness, his original plan was to become a Strength and Conditioning coach. Following this path, he spent a summer internship with the athletics program at Ohio State University. Over the course of the internship, he had the opportunity to work with the team Chiropractor, and became captivated by the profession. After this introduction to Chiropractic, he was fully determined to make it his future.
Chiropractic is a fascinating profession, and is a frontrunner in the shifting paradigm of how we view pain, dysfunction, health and fitness. Too often we are focused on the site of the pain rather than the function of the overall system. More times than not, the area of pain is simply a compensation for a dysfunction elsewhere!
The fun part, and true challenge, is finding the underlying dysfunction and correcting it to fix the cause of the pain, not just cover it up.
