About Dr. Heffner

Bringing more than 35 years of chiropractic excellence to his position as Clinical Director of Physical Medicine at Aligned Modern Health, Dr. Heffner’s passion for education – of both patients and fellow chiropractors – complements his work in the rise of non-invasive, integrative healthcare.

Known for his expertise in The McKenzie Method, Dr. Heffner has been influential in educating the chiropractic community about advancements in this mechanical diagnosis and therapy that emphasizes patient empowerment, practicality, and focuses on “what patients need” for effective case management, rather than what “therapists want to do.”

Dr. Heffner serves as teaching faculty at The McKenzie Institute International, where he is senior faculty. He also serves as extended faculty for several chiropractic colleges, including Palmer, Logan, National, Los Angeles Chiropractic College, Parker, Canadian memorial, Northwestern University of Health Science, and University of Western States.

In 2018 Dr. Heffner achieved Certification to perform Electrodiagnostic Testing (EMG, Nerve Conduction) and performed those at the Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Department at the University of Pittsburgh Medical System’s Williamsport Campus. Dr Heffner is adjunct Faculty at NUHS, University of Western States, Palmer Davenport, Palmer South, Logan Chiropractic College, Canadian Memorial Chiropractic, NHSU (Northwestern Health Sciences University), and LACC (Los Angeles Chiropractic College). Dr. Heffner has written or co-written chapters on the McKenzie Method in 6 clinical textbooks.
