Very helpful and friendly!
The first time I went to a chiropractor. I went for painful muscles in my mid back ... not very common. and the treatment was highly successful. no more pain.
I strongly recommend Dr. Blum!

I had a really terrible kink in my neck and shoulders alleviated by Dr. Tiltmann after my first visit. I continued a few weeks worth of visits to strengthen my muscles and make sure I was totally healed.
Dr. Tiltmann explains everything really clearly and offers his opinion but doesn't force it upon you. He makes you feel like he is more concerned with your care than doing over the top treatments to make some extra money.
I definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a chiropractor!

Love love them. Omg I tweeked my neck this morning and couldn't move my neck. I was in so much pain. They were able to get me a same day appointment. The woman I saw was so knowledge and helpful. I already feel 100% better.
I will def go again.

I think this is my first review of a chiropractic office, but I felt like I had to write a review as this practice is extraordinary. This is hands down the best chiropractic practice you will ever encounter, and probably one of the best health care service providers around period. The core of this group is Dr. Kai Tiltmann, who will bend over backward (literally, if necessary) to ensure that your concerns are being addressed. He knows a ton about your spine, musculature, etc and how everything works together, and will spend the time to explain how to reduce pain, increase flexibility, and generally improve your well being. He is super patient and he CARES.
You will get results here. I went in to address a lower back injury I got picking up my one-year old. I was in a fair amount of pain and needed help stat. Dr. Tiltmann identified the problem, took steps to help alleviate the discomfort (Graston, adjustment), and then recommended steps to prevent it from occurring in the future (strength exercises, etc.). He doesn't just bring you in, adjust you, and send you on your way (unless that's what you want). He will ask you how you're feeling and actually assess your condition to come up with steps to improve your overall health. Trust me, you will be well taken care of here. After a few visits, I noticed that my pain was diminishing significantly, and it almost went away completely after our scheduled visits were up.
If you're gonna see a chiro, you really owe it to yourself to go to Kai Tiltmann. I'm glad I did.

Triathlon training has done a number on my shins (and hips!). I limped over to Financial District Chiropractic to see Dr. Blum. I was slightly skeptical at first, having had chiropractic treatment on past injuries with little result (stim therapy, adjustments, and massage weren't doing much for my sore back or running injuries). Dr. Blum, however, reassured me that I'd be feeling better with treatment, icing, and additional strength building exercises. And she was right! Combining the Graston Method along with Active Release, Kris has truly alleviated muscle tightness, pain, and dysfunction. And I have to say, I felt a HUGE difference after just a few treatments. And although the treatment is far from "pleasant" (it can be pretty painful sometimes), I actually look forward to my weekly appointments with Dr. Blum because I notice significant progress with every treatment. Beyond that, she graciously welcomes the bazillion questions I bombard upon her at each session - always providing thorough and thoughtful feedback.
She really goes above and beyond to make sure that I'm feeling good, comfortably training, and preventing future injuries. This treatment has truly changed the way I feel about training for big events, and reassures me that my injury-prone legs won't stop me from crossing the finish line in any race that I decide to pursue! highly recommend Dr. Blum for a pleasant, thorough, and effective chiropractic experience!

I strongly recommend Dr Kai Tiltmann. Months ago I had pulled my adductor playing tennis and it was especially unfortunate because I was training for a marathon at the same time. Upon disussing the injury with my co-worker she suggest Dr Tiltmann.
Kara, the receptionist, was very helpful from the beginning. I actually only have an HMO and have to go through a third party vendor to get chiropractic coverage. To save time, Kara offered to call my plan and the outside vendor to figure out what kind of discounted coverage I could get. This saved me a ton of time (and frustration). I was able to schedule an appointment for the next day after this was taken care of.
The pain of my injury was about 9/10 when I ran and I was worried that I would not be able to run the marathon I had been training for. During my first visit, we were able to find out which muscle was affected and started treatment immediately. I had a total of eight visits over the span of a month and was back to pre-injury status by the last visit.
Just this last weekend I was able to run my longest run (20 miles) prior to the marathon and have all the thanks to give to Dr Tiltman because I don't think it would have been possible if I had not made those appointments. Again, strongly recommended.
I ran the marathon today and beat my PR.

Dr. Kris Blum is great.
I have been here to see Dr. Tiltmann for previous issues, he was out one day so I tried Kris because I needed immediate attention.
-Very pleasant to speak with
-Strong (but not too tough on me)
-Experienced and accurate
-And generally a very like-able and trustworthy chiro.
I have had 2 back surgeries and continue to do a lot of tough activities. I am a critic.
I also love that she uses 3 techniques on me.
3. active release
Many other places only do #1.
Basically I get a physical therapy visit to compliment my adjustment.
The results are great and I have never felt like I got more for my money from a chiro.
I strongly recommend her.

What a great find. They truly care that you get better. Trying to eliminate the need for multiple visits with intensive soft tissue work really works. I have gone from once a week chiro. visits to once a month. And, that's just for maintenance.
Integrity is alive and well here. You will be happy if you follow the well mapped plan Dr Tiltmann puts together for you.

When it comes to chiropractic care, I was quite skeptical. I had some neck pain earlier last year, likely due to a bad desk setup at work, but also aggravated by surfing. Rest, ice, Ibuprofen wasn't helping the pain. Dr. Tiltmann worked on it for a few weeks - haven't had a problem since.
I was impressed by the amount of time I received during each appointment. Dr. Tiltmann was willing to discuss my concerns rather than just rush me through.

Dr. Tiltmann is a real 'game-changer'. In addition to doing amazing work on my neck and back he changed my perceptions about chiropractic work and aspects of my health in general.
The staff is amazing and the process is clear and well-articulated. Add to all this that Dr. Tiltmann got rid of a back situation that I've had for over a decade that other chiropractors had no affect on. I will never go anywhere else again. Highest recommendation.

I'm a big fan of Chiropractic medicine both as a prevention and as healing solution. Before moving to SF I was seeing the same Chiropractor for over five years and needed to find someone good in the city. Dr. Tiltmann has been REALLY amazing for my lower back and neck issues and I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Contrary to other Chiropractors I've seen, he's very articulate in defining the issues and never makes you feel like he's in a rush for his next patient. He takes the time to asses the problem right in order to get it right the first time. And he's definitely not the type of Chiropractor who's only goal is to get you to come back as often as possible.
