Optimize Chiropractic

Optimize Chiropractic offers data-driven structural realignment for patients.

Aches and pains got you down? Optimize Chiropractic may be able to help. 

“Optimize Chiropractic is a structural chiropractic center that uses data-driven analysis to help individuals achieve normal structural alignment,” states Optimize Chiropractic Owner Dr. Jacob Coffman. 

Two years into chiropractic college, Coffman was first inspired with the idea behind what would become his practice. 

“I was frustrated in school because I wanted to be able to help my mom with her health issues,” explains Coffman. “Due to her health issues, she couldn’t handle a conventional chiropractic adjustment. In my second year I learned about structural chiropractic. Since this type of chiropractic care utilizes a data-driven approach to make a very gentle and specific adjustment I was able to help my mom and see changes before and after an adjustment.”

From then on, Coffman knew that he wanted to help individuals who had chronic pain, migraines, fibromyalgia, etc. “I wanted to help individuals who typically do not respond well to rough manipulation, but respond very well to specific and gentle structural corrections,” he adds.

Coffman runs the practice alongside his fiancé, Samantha Daniel. The two have been behind the planning and development of Optimize Chiropractic. 

“After graduation I was recruited to work at one of the top structural chiropractic offices in the U.S.,” says Coffman. “My fiancé and I moved to Florida and I quickly started working. However, after 7 months I realized that the practice I was working for wasn’t delivering on the promises it made to patients. This was against my morals and, luckily, it was at this time we got an offer to open up an office in Columbus, close to my fiancé’s family. With the support of my fiancé and her family we moved to Columbus to open Optimize Chiropractic.”

At the practice you will find structural chiropractic services rather than conventional services. 

“Conventional chiropractic primarily focuses on temporarily decreasing pain, muscle spasms, and increasing range fo motion by utilizing gross manipulation and modalities such as cupping, soft tissue work, etc.,” he explains, whereas structural chiropractic focuses on getting the alignment of the human body balanced. 

“When it comes to the body, whether it is your blood pressure, cholesterols levels, or blood glucose levels there are normals,” says Coffman. “The same goes with the structure of the human body. When in normal alignment (head tilt under 1 degree, shoulder tilt under one degree, spinal tilt under one degree and hip tilt under one degree) there isn’t stress on the muscles holding us up, there isn’t pressure on the nerves going to our neck, our back and our low back and there isn’t strain on the spinal cord.”

Even just a slight head tilt can put stress on the body’s muscles. “These muscles have nerves and blood vessels that run through them,” he says. “Pressure on these nerves and blood vessels caused by abnormal alignment can lead to migraines, neck pain, headaches, and chronic pain disorders.”

Optimize Chiropractic aims to relieve those aches and pains by utilizes a multi-axial digital analysis system that shows patients and the doctor how the body has broken down then uses a specific, gentle correction to restore the body to its normal alignment, taking the stress off of the compromised tissues and allows them to heal.

Coffman says that what makes his practice stand out is its data-driven structural approach.

“Optimize Chiropractic is the only chiropractic office in Columbus that utilizes a multi-axial digital analysis system before and after every adjustment,” he says. “Why does that matter? If we say we are correcting the structure we need to be able to show you the specific changes. That’s why we measure before and after every correction. This allows us to make sure that you always leave with better alignment.”

In addition to the services it already offers, Optimize Chiropractic will soon branch out to offer multiple health classes ranging from how to utilize heart rate variability to have a more effective workouts to how to make lasting lifestyle changes. 

“I am currently working on a research article that explores the neurology of the neck and the connection between whiplash injuries and concussions,” he says. “I am also digging into multiple case studies that we have done at the offers and I am hoping to get these published in 2019.”
