Heather R. Kauffman received her Doctorate of Chiropractic degree in 1994 from the National College of Chiropractic in Lombard, IL. She returned to Wyoming shortly thereafter to reopen the practice of the late Dr. Delmer S. Woods. She is also a fellow of the International Academy of Medical Acupuncture and consults on a part time basis for the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners.
Dr. Kauffman was born in Washington but grew up in Cheyenne. She graduated from East High School and attended undergraduate classes at both LCCC and the University of Wyoming. She became interested in chiropractic when she saw the benefits it provided to a family member with a herniated disc without the need for narcotics or surgery. She worked for Dr. Woods as an assistant which solidified her interest to become a chiropractor herself. She has one daughter, Rayann.
Dr. Kauffman started Kauffman Chiropractic in 1994 and has been in active practice at the same location since that time. It is very important to her that each patient be treated with respect and honesty and she has built her practice on that mantra. She feels that only by spending time with a patient can a doctor truly understand the needs of that patient. She treats all conditions from simple spinal stiffness to disc problems, shoulder and knee pain, hip pain and nerve compression injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome.
Aspin Rhoades graduated from Northwestern Health Sciences in Bloomington, MN with her Doctorate of Chiropractic degree in 2020. She moved to Cheyenne, WY in August of 2020 to complete her internship at Kauffman Chiropractic and continued working there after graduation. While at Northwestern she earned her Sports Emphasis Honors, that gave her the knowledge to assess and treat athletes of all skill levels.
Dr. Rhoades was born in southern Utah but raised in Casper, WY from the age of 6. After graduating from Natrona County High School and obtaining her associates degree from Casper College in 2015 she moved to Laramie, Wy. In 2017, she graduated from the University of Wyoming with her Bachelor of Science in Biology then moved to Minnesota for Graduate school. She loves to stay active, if she’s not on the tennis court, shooting her bow or at the gym you can find her on the lake fishing or in the mountains enjoying nature with her dog Waylon, a German wirehaired pointer.
Dr. Rhoades feels it’s very important to connect and get to know her patients. She strives to find the root cause of the discomfort and treat with an integrative method. She is currently working on her acupuncture license so she can offer her patients a more holistic approach to care. Dr. Rhoades provides the opportunity to increase range-of-motion, decrease pain and maximize the patient overall quality of life.
