Spine specialist, Dr. Derek Tenckhoff (pictured with Dr. Cox above) shares a story of an active young man who is sidelined with leg pain for a year.
Dr. Tenckhoff is a second generation chiropractor who has been involved in Chiropractic since he was born. He received his first adjustment from his father hours after being born. Growing up he competed in sports including: wrestling, judo, MMA, swimming, and baseball. Chiropractic adjustments helped to keep him healthy and at the top of his game. His passion for chiropractic began when he took more interest in his father’s career as a chiropractor. He observed how patients would come to his father after seeing multiple doctors and being told that surgery was their only option. However, these patients would give his father a chance, and would be healed, no longer needing surgery. He knew then that chiropractic was what he wanted to do. He received his Bachelors in Psychology from Chico State University and his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Southern California University of Health Sciences. He is a Cox Certified doctor.
