Dr. Hartmann was born and raised in the Homewood-Flossmoor area. He was a graduate of Homewood-Flossmoor High School where he became a 6-time state champion gymnast.  He went on to attend The University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana on a Chick Evans Caddy Scholarship where his major was Sports Medicine and Kinesiology. He then attended The National University of Health Sciences in Lombard, Illinois. He was awarded a second Bachelors degree in Human Biology and eventually went on to receive his Doctorate in Chiropractic Medicine. He has been practicing the skill, art and science of chiropractic locally for nearly a decade.

Dr. Hartmann specializes in the treatment of disc injuries of the neck and lower back, extremity problems and uses innovative ways to bring healing to difficult cases.  He is credentialed by the International McKenzie Institute and practices the McKenzie Method of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy.  Currently, Dr. Hartmann is 1 of 77 chiropractors in the United States that holds this certification.  He is trained in Functional Dry Needling / Intramuscular Dry Needling through Kinetacore. He also uses Fascial Distortion Model to bring quick response to soft tissue distortions.

Dr Hartmann’s philosophy of practice is simple…patient education, self-treatment strategies and being proficient in manual therapy techniques.  What results should I expect when I see Dr. Hartmann?  If he can “classify” your condition during your first six visits, the you will be “FIXED” within two weeks.
