About Balance Chiropractic

I’m Dr. Max J. Pohl.

dr-max-pohl-mountain-biking dr-max-pohl-weight-liftingGrowing up in a life full of extreme sports, wrestling competitions and strength training, I found myself becoming a patient of chiropractic due to chronic low back pain. Grateful that traditional chiropractic got me into the profession, it wasn’t until a previous girlfriend of mine regained her health from a seemingly “hopeless” and debilitating head/neck injury, that I realized focusing on Foundational Correction was my passion in practice.

However, with Foundational Correction (no popping and cracking), I have found great joy in helping people who believe they have tried everything to regain their health. After thousands of hours training and practicing this technique, I have found great confidence in helping people manage chronic conditions such as:

  • Canal Stenosis
  • Dizziness /Balance /Vertigo issues
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Jaw pain / TMJ disorders
  • Migraine Headaches
  • Multiple Sclerosis

I’m Dr. Ernesto Fernandez,

I was born in Havana, Cuba and was raised in Sarasota Florida. I received a B.S. degree in Sports and Exercise Physiology from the University of Central Florida in 2014 and a Doctor of Chiropractic degree in 2017 from Palmer College of Chiropractic Florida. Growing up with a passion for strength and human performance, I have accumulated over seven years of experience in functional exercise and strives to help people reach unbound potential.

Throughout my graduate studies at Palmer I developed a fascination with the chiropractic philosophy. I spent the rest of my graduate career studying neurology, anatomy, and biomechanics of the upper cervical spine and how those sciences relate to the human body’s ability to function and heal optimally. I have currently finished over 300 post- graduate hours in Foundational Correction and am dedicated to educating and empowering the Colorado Springs community through a lifetime of health and wellness. through this unique work, I’ve develped a special interest in complex cases and conditions such as traumatic brain injury, whiplash, and neurodegenerative diseases. In my free time I enjoys the beach, hiking the Rocky mountains, and traveling the world.
