Foundation Chiropractic Chiropractor, Dustin Kniffin

Dr. Dustin Kniffin

Dr. Dustin Kniffin was just 16 years old when he knew he wanted to be a chiropractor. He suffered from a weight lifting injury, which left him handicapped for two years and unable to lift more than 20 pounds. Multiple medical doctors prescribed him muscle relaxers and physical therapy, but all attempts failed to relieve his lower back pain. It wasn’t until he was seen by a chiropractor that he finally felt relief. After personally receiving the health benefits chiropractic care has to offer, it became an obvious path he wanted to pursue.

Becoming a Chiropractor

In his first year of school at Life University, he studied the Pierce Results System alongside Dr. Marie Hoying. After being exposed to the technology and advancements chiropractic has made, he decided to continue studying this technique through the rest of his schooling. After finishing his Doctorate in Chiropractic, he decided to further his education and pursue a Master’s in Sports Health Sciences with a focus in sports Chiropractic to better work with and treat athletes. While obtaining his Master’s, he also had a fellowship with Dr. Keith Rau taking care of the athletes at Life University. He treated athletes from basketball, rugby, wrestling, bowling, golf, soccer, swim, and track and field, many of which went on to national championships. He gained valuable experience working on the sidelines with athletic trainers to help athletes meet their performance goals, as well as aiding injured players, including post-surgical cases.

Dr. Kniffin’s mission at Foundation Chiropractic is to change as many lives as possible through specific chiropractic care so their bodies may express health as they were intended. Dr. Marie Hoying’s invitation to work at Foundation Chiropractic was a highly desired position, as she is very focused on quality of patient care. Together, they plan to help people in the Dublin and surrounding communities achieve the highest level of health possible through technologically advanced spinal corrective chiropractic care. They are also passionate to help athletes attain optimal performance and prevent injuries.

In his spare time, Dr. Kniffin enjoys hiking, working out, reading, spending time with friends and family, and finding ways to improve chiropractic care in order to help more people.
