Dr. Derek Woodman became part of The Joint Chiropractic’s team of local healthcare providers in 2019; he began serving residents in the Fort Lauderdale area, where he continues doing the work he finds so gratifying, in 2021.
“The things I like best about being in the chiropractic field are the emotional benefits of enhanced mind and body connection,” he says. “It’s rewarding to help patients share the best versions of themselves with friends and family, and be able to confidently approach the duties of life with less pain.
“It’s an honor and privilege to be a trusted resource for health improvement.”
Dr. Woodman is a product of California’s San Francisco Bay Area and worked previously in San Diego, where he received his introduction to chiropractic. “In youth mixed martial arts, my teachers were from China and Japan and would perform adjustments,” he says. “I had a football coach, along with family friends, who were chiropractors.”
He shares his home with two pit bulls, Bane and Belle, and in his spare time is a professional strongman competitor.
He attended San Diego State, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology fitness specialist. He received his doctorate in chiropractic from Life Chiropractic College West in Hayward, Calif.
“Being raised around chiropractic in different styles from all over the world taught me the power of an adjustment,” he says. “Once, working as a strength coach and massage therapist, I was exposed to limitations in my ability to help my athletes or clients to recover. During chiropractic school I was able to learn adjustment techniques almost instantly. When helping my classmates, they discovered I have a photographic memory that gave me an advantage learning anatomy and adjusting. When you see me with a patient, you will see I was born to be a chiropractor. Adjustments don’t lie.
“It feels especially good to help people achieve what they never thought would be possible.”
In Case You Didn’t Know
Dr. Woodman says he always keeps red meat stocked in his refrigerator so that he can fire up the barbecue while watching football and Ultimate Fighting Championship.
If he could bring together any four people from history for his ideal dinner party, Dr. Woodman would sit down with comedians Dave Chappelle, Joe Rogan, Robin Williams, and Eddie Griffin “because that would be the funniest thing ever seen.”
The most amazing experience of his life took place when he “competed in a global competition to determine the strongest man alive and placed 92nd overall.”
The best advice he ever received, he says, was from a high school football coach, who said, “You will never regret giving your best effort. When your life is over, you will remember this because you did.”
