Dr. Joel Pirmann's passion for helping others heal first grew from a career managing health clubs and teaching fitness to children for a national gymnastics corporation. In his everyday work, Pirmann had sustained minor injuries, each of which were treated by his chiropractor. Through various treatments, a mentorship developed between Pirmann and his doctor, which led Pirmann to a better understanding of health, nutrition, and fitness. After a stint at a physical-therapy center, Pirmann found his calling in chiropractic and graduated from his five-year program in 2000 in just under four years.
Now, as owner of Pirmann Family Chiropractic, the doctor tends to injuries and long-term problems with the belief that, “[the practice] can help the body heal itself by restoring the normal structure of the spine, without the use of dangerous prescription and non-prescription drugs.” To help the body heal, Pirmann combines chiropractic care with massage therapy, nutrition, and rehabilitation exercises. He also educates his patients through “Half Hour to Health” classes provided every Tuesday evening.:m]]
