Martin Blankenship

Chiropractor

Dr. Martin Blankenship is a Chiropractor practicing in St Petersburg, FL. Dr. Blankenship specializes in preventing, diagnosing, and treating conditions associated with the neuromusculoskeletal system, while improving each patients functionality and quality of life. Conditions treated include sciatica, neck pain, and arthritis pain, among many others. Dr. Blankenship seeks to reduce pain and discomfort through manipulation and adjustment of the spine.

Dr. Martin was first inspired to become a chiropractor when a snowboarding injury during college rendered him unable to run without pain.  This was devastating as Dr. Martin was, and is a very active, healthy individual.  After having an MRI and being told that there was nothing wrong with the tissues, the given prognosis was to give it time and it would get better.  Nine months of not being able to run without pain was taking its toll on him.  It was at this time that his sister dragged him down to the chiropractor where he learned that the problem was not an anatomical problem but a functional problem.  It was very clear to the chiropractor what was wrong and after one chiropractic adjustment, he was able to run across the parking lot without pain.  That was the inspiration for him to become a chiropractor over 20 years ago.  He has been adjusting and educating patients on the benefits of chiropractic care ever since.

Dr. Martin attended both Life Chiropractic College and Life Chiropractic College West, graduating from the latter in 1995.  It was then that he commenced practice in Florida and several countries across the world.  From Florida to England to Northern Ireland to Australia and finally back home to stay in beautiful Saint Petersburg.  In the over 20 years that Dr. Martin has been a Chiropractic Physician, he has dedicated his life and work to adjusting as many families as possible toward optimal health and improving their lives through the process.  Dr. Martin also speaks some Spanish in an attempt to better communicate with his patients.
