Our History

While he became a Doctor of Chiropractic in 2003, Dr. Kauffman became proud owner of this practice in 2018. After spending the first 8 years of his Chiropractic career as an integral part of a group practice in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Dr. Kauffman and his family moved back to the Bay Area. A graduate of Palmer West Chiropractic College in San Jose, Dr. Kauffman was ready to open up his own practice. In 2011, the now well established and ever growing Thrive Milpitas was born. With the success of this practice, the unique services offered, and the unmatched customer care and service provided, Dr. Kauffman and his family were ready to offer the Bay Area more, and create Thrive 20/20 in San Jose.

Originally 20/20 Chiropractic, Dr. Kauffman and his family saw this already awarding-winning chiropractic center as the perfect spot to spread its wings. Though it is still growing, Thrive 20/20 now offers a combination of services like no other wellness center in the Bay Area. These services include physiotherapy, cold laser, and massage therapy to compliment this chiropractic and wellness center. While Dr. Kauffman is overseeing operations at Thrive 20/20, he is fortunate enough to have one of the best Chiropractors in the Bay Area in Dr. Nic Berglund as the main treating chiropractor, as well as some of the greatest massage therapists in the bay area.

Dr. Nic studied and trained directly under Dr. Kauffman at the original Thrive Milpitas location, and is a firm believer that exercise and physical rehabilitation is an important part of treatment and is needed to fix the underlying cause of dysfunction. A specialist in motor vehicle accidents and treatment plans to help patients recover quickly, Dr. Nic uses his advanced training and certification in functional range conditioning mobilization (FRCm) to provide long-term results.

Dr. Kauffman’s main treating location, Thrive Milpitas, has had great success combining chiropractic care, physical fitness, nutrition, and A.R.T.© as part of patient care. Not only has Thrive had success with treating professional and amateur athletes, but Dr. Kauffman was even chosen to treat world-class athletes at the 2003 IronMan World Championships in Kona, Hawaii. Thrive, A Kauffman Chiropractic, Inc. offers a multiple therapy approach to address all your health needs. With award-winning chiropractic and massage, the Thrive family also provides treatment for sports, work and automobile injuries.

As proud owners of Thrive 20/20 and Thrive Milpitas, Dr. Kauffman and his family strive to provide the wonderful San Jose, Milpitas and surrounding areas with the best healthcare in the region. Thrive 20/20 and Thrive Milpitas works with many health care providers (orthopedic, pain management, medical doctors, nutritionists, and other chiropractors) to be sure the patient gets optimal care. The patient is the most important aspect of this business, and is what allows it to THRIVE.
