I was in college, exercising on a trampoline, when I did a flip and landed wrong. I heard a 'snap' in my back and from that moment on, I experienced excruciating pain in my back and legs. The school physician prescribed pain pills and muscle relaxers.
Four weeks later, I was still in a lot of pain and unable to sit for any period of time. That’s when I caught an on-campus lecture by chiropractor, Dr. David Coonrad.
I was skeptical about chiropractic, but everything I heard made sense. When I spoke to Dr. Dave after the lecture, I told him about the accident and the pain I was still experiencing. He asked me to come to his office to see if he could help me. Since nothing else was working, I figured I’d give it a try.
It took some time for my body to heal completely, but I was back to my old self in a few weeks. In fact, I was feeling better than I did before the accident. It was then that I decided to be a chiropractor. I wanted to help people like Dr. Dave helped me.
I attended Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis, Mo and was surprised to find that the education I received there was almost the same as that of a medical doctor. I was drawn to the anatomy lab for dissection and was amazed at the complexity of the human body and its intricate detail.
Since I’m always looking for better ways to help facilitate healing, I attend post-graduate courses several times a year to keep updated on the latest changes in natural healing.
The body is programmed to be healthy, vital and filled with energy. I believe that we are spiritual beings living in human bodies and I know that when we are faced with a health challenge, we are disconnected from our natural internal healing. I like to figure out the cause of a particular health challenge, rather than just removing symptoms. This may include recommending nutritional support, proper foot balance, a change in a limiting belief, proper movement of the body, and proper rest and hydration.
In addition to helping others create wellness, I want my own body to function at its optimum level of health and well being. I still get my nervous system checked weekly, and I have since getting into chiropractic over 25 years ago. I also love to eat great food and luckily, my wife, Rachelle, is an awesome cook. We eat organic fruits and vegetables whenever possible, as well as free-range chicken, and meats that are not fed antibiotics or hormones, and we drink lots of pure water.
I love to work with people who want to actively participate in improving their health and the health of their families. I look forward to meeting with you in person to find out how we may be of service to you. Give us a call to arrange a time to explore your options. I have appointments available at both my Highland Park and Princeton office. I would love to help you meet your health goals.

Dr. Kim Wayne Oman was born in New Brunswick, NJ, attended local schools, and has been a lifelong resident in the area. He has been in practice since 1975 after graduating from Columbia Institute of Chiropractic (New York Chiropractic College) that year. He also has a B.S. from Rider University and has numerous certifications in health related fields such as nutrition, personal training, neuro-linguistic programming, and back school certification.
In practice for more than 39 years, Dr. Oman believes that a patient's symptom improvement is a direct result of covering bases. By supporting the Chiropractic adjustment with the patient's compliance relative to body mechanics (learning to perform tasks ergonomically and safely), proper exercise, and nutrition, the results from treatment are enhanced dramatically.
Dr. Oman has also been certified in Personal training (exercise); Back school (body mechanics/lifting etc.); and has had numerous postgraduate hours in the study of Nutrition and offers nutritional and weight-loss counseling. He also performs spinal decompression using a Cox table. This is very helpful for low back pain, sciatic pain, pain related to bulging and herniated discs and neuropathy.
He truly believes that the body/mind connection plays a huge part in overall results and to this aim; he has also become certified in Neuro-Linguistic-Programming (NLP) in order to address these vital issues.
