My Journey to Becoming a Chiropractor

Sappington Chiropractor, Dr. Jason Blumenfeld

“How amazing!!” The very first time that I ever went to a chiropractor was when I was in high school. In fact, it wasn’t even for me! I was accompanying my high school girlfriend and her mother to see their chiropractor. We were out running errands one day and it happened to be time for their appointments. I accompanied them in to the treatment room, watched them get adjusted and thought to myself, “how amazing!!” I must confess, though, that I cringed as I heard their necks “pop” as they got adjusted, and visually, I thought, “how freaky!!” He then offered to adjust me…..hmm…I don’t know…as I thought to myself. After hesitating for a few moments, I said, “why not?” After that, I was TRULY amazed as to how good I felt and as to how wonderful my back was! That was my first experience going to a chiropractor!

“I was a little skeptical, then AMAZED!”

While attending undergraduate school at Florida State University as a biology major, I was working part-time at a local bank in Tallahassee as a bank teller. One day, the Brinks delivery truck dropped off a huge shipment of coins that was carried into the vault. I accompanied the head teller into the vault, and being the only male teller there, I was given the task of opening up the rolled coin and counting it down. Well, I lifted up a heavy bag of rolled quarter, sprained my lower back in the process, and fell to the ground in severe pain.

After this incident, I went home, took aspirin and took a hot bath to try to loosen up my muscles. The next morning, I could barely get up out of bed, called a coworker at the bank who was seeing a chiropractor for her whiplash injury, and asked her for the name and number of her chiropractor. I literally crawled into the shower, got into my car and made it to my appointment.

After just the first treatment, I was AMAZED as to how much better I felt, and suddenly, the light bulb came on!! After three treatments, I felt 110% better. This chiropractor that I went to in Tallahassee, FL just happened to be a graduate of Logan College of Chiropractic here in St. Louis, and was actually a native of St. Louis!! The rest is history!!

A Chiropractic Education

I received my Bachelor of Science in Human Biology from Logan College of Chiropractic in 1989, and received my Doctorate of Chiropractic, Cum Laude, in 1992. I immediately went into private practice and started Blumenfeld Family Chiropractic in October of 1992 and have been doing so ever since! I then continued with a postdoctoral program in Acupuncture and received my Missouri State Acupuncture Certification in 1994. Acupuncture is amazing!!
