JOHN KOC, DC

DESERT RIDGE BACKFIT | CHIROPRACTOR

Dr. John is a native of Arizona. Growing up, Chiropractic care was his primary source of healthcare. This ultimately led him down the path to becoming a Doctor of Chiropractic.

Dr. John completed his undergraduate studies at Arizona State University with a B.S. degree in Exercise Science. Immediately after graduating ASU, Dr. John attended Parker College of Chiropractic in Dallas, Texas. There he learned numerous adjusting techniques including Diversified, Thompson, Activator, Upper Cervical, SOT, Gonstead, Myofascial Release, Flexion/Distraction, and Extremities. While attending Parker College he also completed a postgraduate certification in Applied Kinesiology.

Dr. John enjoys an active lifestyle through sports and nearly any activity that can be found outdoors. As one of the original founding members of the Sports Council for the Arizona Association of Chiropractic, he has always placed an emphasis upon working with athletes. This passion later transformed when Dr. John became a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician with the American Board of Chiropractic Sports Physicians in 2017. Since completion of the program, Dr. John has been involved in helping triathletes and mountain bike racers in numerous events around Arizona.

Dr. John is primarily focused on helping his patients achieve optimal health by adjusting the spine and extremities. He is confident he can help improve the health and well-being of his patients through chiropractic care whether the patient is a newborn, currently pregnant, 100+ years old, an athlete, or injured in a motor vehicle accident.

When Dr. John is not at the office helping his patients on their journey to better health, he enjoys traveling, being outdoors, nearly all forms of exercise and especially spending time with his wife, two daughters, and puppy.

Absolutely love this place! My husband and I have been going here for a while, and every time they remember us. We never have to re-explain anything. From the front desk to the medical team and chiropractors, they genuinely care. I’ve been having issues with my back and knee for as long as I can remember, and they helped make me feel better then I ever have. It's hard to find businesses that are run like BackFit. They have what is best for you at heart. Thanks for making my husband and I feel better then we’ve felt in years!

I would highly recommend BackFit. The staff and doctors are wonderful and my treatment has been very successful. My migraine headaches and sciatic nerve pain are completely gone. I have significantly less lower back pain and much more range of motion despite the fact that the disc in my back was very damaged. I can now go about my daily living without health issues getting in the way.

Great adjustments. Friendly staff too. Good therapists for exercising and stretching before I get adjusted. Been going for 4 years, totally love coming to get adjusted. Not scary at all. I had severe lower back pain and spasms. When I go for a routine adjustment it keeps from back pain occurring and my back spasming.

Going to BackFit was one of the best decisions I've made. I couldn't get out of bed because of severe back pain. I called BackFit and they were able to see me that day. They took x-rays in office. Loved that I didn't have to go anywhere else. Went back a couple days later to go over x-ray results with the chiropractor and started working on a solution, also with their in-house physician assistant and physical therapist. Not only have they been able to relieve the pain in my back but they have worked on other kinks in my body. Oh, and they also helped me lose weight. What more can I say, the people are amazing and the results are amazing! If anything in your body hurts, go to BackFit!

I look forward and enjoy every visit in my road to back recovery. The staff is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and welcoming. I will no longer be looking for another chiropractor office to meet my back needs. I also like the fact they provide other health needs.

I was a little weary at first, but man even in the first two weeks they are really making a difference in my health! I felt the difference just after my first visit! I am committed to coming back and staying consistently. I actually recommend!
