Dr. Hamm has an Advanced Certification in Chiropractic Biophysics (CBP) Technique, a well-researched, evidence-based method of structural correction (realignment) of the spine and posture.
Dr. Hamm also has a strong interest analyzing movement as a way to identify movement “errors” that contribute to painful, degenerative conditions of the body. In 2009, he learned about a new approach to assessing and correcting movement dysfunction called Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS). Since that time, he has incorporated DNS methods into his treatment, rehabilitation, and exercise protocols. Dr. Hamm is a Certified DNS Exercise Trainer and a Certified DNS Practitioner.
