Andrew Schafer began his journey into the health care field by becoming a personal trainer in 1991. He quickly found that while he was taught to train healthy people, (without medical complications) his actual clients were anything but. . They were in pain because they did not exercise. However, exercising without any guidance hurt them even more. Driven to find a better solution, Dr. Schafer graduated from National University of Health Sciences in 1998.. An avid runner, weight trainer and yoga enthusiast, he now encourages patients to find an exercise that works best for them. His expertise lie in looking at both form (posture and alignment) and function (muscular component) to find the source of pain, This naturally improves their mind-body connection. Completing his first marathon in 2011 was his way of leading by example. He is now training for his first triathlon. He sees patients with everyday muscle aches and joint pains, auto injuries, arthritis, disc herniations, nerve pain, as well as sports injuries.
