Meet Dr. Jeff Vendsel

First a Patient, Then a Provider

Tucson Chiropractor, Dr. Jeff Vendsel

Dr. Jeff Vendsel remembers being introduced to chiropractic by his mother, who sought chiropractic care for serious neck and back injuries sustained in an auto accident. He became a chiropractic patient when he suffered a  low back injury on the football field in high school. “My sciatic nerve was pinched, causing both of my legs to go numb and making it impossible to walk.”

At the time, X-rays were the predominant technology and didn’t reveal the severity of Dr. Jeff’s injury. When exploratory surgery became a possibility, his mother took him to see her chiropractor. “It enabled my body to heal naturally, and I gained the opportunity to go back to playing football.”

A Lasting Impression

Dr. Jeff was impressed by the power of chiropractic and its ability to help people regain and maintain their good health. As he approached his high school graduation, he visited his chiropractor for his supportive care adjustment. The doctor asked Dr. Jeff if he had considered becoming a chiropractor.

“Although I had experienced first-hand chiropractic’s incredible health benefits, I had not considered attending chiropractic college.” At the encouragement of his chiropractor while he was attending and working towards his undergraduate degree at the University of North Dakota, Dr. Jeff  completed his requirements for acceptance, was accepted and attended Northwestern Health Sciences University.  He graduated with  his Doctorate of Chiropractic in 1981.


Never Stop Learning

While in chiropractic school, Dr. Jeff was fascinated by the art and science of chiropractic and how form relates to function. Dr. Jeff’s education didn’t end when he graduated from Northwestern. To this day, he continues to pursue postgraduate education and specialized certifications on a variety of health topics.

Dr. Jeff holds the following qualifications:

  • National Board of Chiropractic Examiners Diplomate  
  •  Masters Certification in Whiplash and Brain Traumatology from The Spine Research  Institute of San Diego (www.srisd.com)
  •  Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician (acbsp.com)
  •  Level One Certificate from the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI.com)

The pursuit of new and better ways to treat patients has pushed Dr. Jeff over his 35 years in practice. “I need to be challenged. I never want to get complacent or feel I have a handle on everything. If you don’t grow, you should stop what you’re doing.”

Three Decades and Counting

Dr. Jeff is proud to say that he has been practicing chiropractic for more than 35 years. What keeps him going? “Having people tell me that I have made a difference in their health and well-being as well as their lives is a great feeling. I enjoy continuing to work with people to educate them about their health and help them feel better.”

Staying Active and Healthy

When Dr. Jeff isn’t helping patients, you can probably find him on the golf course, at a basketball game playing racquetball,hiking or biking. His active lifestyle and high school and college athletic careers gives him a keen perspective in helping athletes. Dr. Jeff enjoys music of all types, cooking, reading, and movies.

Great Doctor, awesome caring person! I've been going to Dr. Jeff for years. I started off with a nearly dislocated shoulder that he put back together for me. He has helped with my back, neck, knees, elbows, wrists and even a bad toe! Whatever is out of whack he can fix it! Can't say enough good things about him. If you're hurting Dr. Jeff can and will help you!
