After 3 years in the Army, he attended Columbia Junior College in Columbia California for 2 years, made Honor Roll and graduated with an Associates Degree in Liberal Arts. Continuing his education, he was accepted to The University of Colorado @ Boulder and graduated in 1997 with a B.A. in Kinesiology. After a short break and a decision to continue his education in Chiropractic, Dr. Hartman attended Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, MN. He graduated in 2002 with a degree of Doctor of Chiropractic and decided to return to Colorado to open up his own clinic where he now lives with his wife Kelly (who is a nurse) and two children. He has been freeing people from pain at Hartman Chiropractic for over 15 years and is committed to promoting optimal health and well being to his patients. He uses a "whole person approach". This approach to wellness means looking for underlying causes of any disturbance or disruption (which may or may not be causing symptoms at the time) and make whatever interventions and lifestyle adjustments that would optimize the conditions for normal function. Using this unique approach, Dr. Hartman is able to help you to accelerate and/or maintain your journey to good health.
