Max Lippman, DC
Dr. Max Lippman of Plaza Chiropractic and Massage Therapy in Danville, California, incorporates muscle work into many of his treatment plans, something he’s been doing since starting as a massage therapist in 2006. As a 2009 graduate of Life Chiropractic College West, Dr. Lippman is specifically trained in sports rehab, myofascial release, auto accidents, and work-related injury prevention.
Providing chiropractic care to children and teens is something Dr. Lippman truly enjoys. He has a long history of working with young people. He started working as a camp counselor at age 13 and mentored children and teens in various capacities throughout the years.
A native of northern California, he grew up in Arcata, California, about five hours north of Danville, and currently lives with his family in nearby Livermore, California. Dr. Lippman serves as president of the California Chiropractic Association for his local district.
Today, Dr. Lippman continues to use his extra muscle work to ensure his patients recover faster and more completely and feel better for longer. Since exercise, nutrition, and attitude are key to recovery, he makes sure to discuss those lifestyle components.
Whether he’s treating a runner needing to evaluate her gait, a baseball player with scar tissue limiting his throwing motion, a three-year-old needing a sacrum realignment, or an office worker who needs core strengthening in order to sit up straight, Dr. Lippman makes sure he and his staff evaluate and correct the issue. He tailors his care to his patients and their specific needs, taking a multi-faceted approach to chiropractic care.
