Report: Chiropractor With Rockin' KISS Collection

Jennifer Maciejewski of Today's Chiropractic Lifestyle reports:

When Peter Joffe, D.C., pulled a muscle in his back while bowling with some friends during college, he tried everything from painkillers to hot packs, but nothing touched the pain. After a few days, he visited the chiropractor that his sister used after a car accident, and within a couple of visits, his pain was gone. By his senior year, the biology major had decided to become a chiropractor, and today Joffe, who specializes in the Chiropractic Bio-Physics (CBP) technique, operates Joffe Family Chiropractic in Manalapan, N.J.

While his passion for chiropractic has its roots in his college years, Joffe began collecting KISS memorabilia when he was just a toddler, after his teenage brother introduced him to the band. "At that age, usually little kids are either deathly afraid of KISS or think they're like superheroes," Joffe recalls. "I was definitely the latter. At that age, I got things like the original KISS dolls and the original KISS lunchbox for Christmas and birthdays. I used to take the lunchbox to nursery school and kindergarten. As I got older, I started to get into not only collecting the albums, but different pictures, posters and KISS videos. I used to go to KISS conventions and collect stuff like that. My room at my parents' house used to look like a KISS shrine; once I ran out of wall space, I started putting stuff up on the ceiling."

Over the years, Joffe has had several items autographed by members of the band, including books, albums and his childhood lunchbox. And not only has he been to over 20 concerts at which he's caught several guitar pics, he attended the funeral when KISS's second drummer died.
