Dr. Maria Coffman, D.O.

Osteopathic Physician
Hands On Health · Columbia, MO

My pain all started with a knee injury from running. After limping around with it for a month, I found myself having extreme back and hip pain. I had consulted with other doctors who wanted to inject my back with steroids, which was not appealing to me at all. I was able to get the inflammation down to a more manageable level by using some physical therapy modalities, but it never went away.

Each day, I woke up with pain shooting into my hip and down my legs.At times, I couldn’t tolerate standing or sitting. I was unsure how difficult each day would be until my feet hit the floor in the morning. I found Dr. Coffman through a friend and prayed that she would be the one to help me get relief. I made that first appointment hoping for help, but feeling like
pain was going to be a part of life forever. At least, that was what other doctors had led me to believe.

Dr. Coffman was able to utilize very gentle muscle techniques that gave me unbelievable results in that very first visit. I walked out feeling comfortable for the first time in five months. I was astounded and a little skeptical that
it would last. I was pleasantly surprised to find that not only did it last, I was able to function again. I received a few more treatments and have to honestly say, that in those treatments, Dr. Coffman gave me my life back. I am now able to exercise, keep up with my young family and do my job without pain.

Dr. Coffman has treated me in the most holistic manner that I have ever experienced. She understands my lifestyle and looks beyond just my immediate medical needs. I am forever grateful for the help that she has given me in getting back into life!
