Let me tell you a little about myself and the reason why I became a Chiropractor. The story began when I was about 14 years old. While running track I suffered a serious back injury. I was given muscle relaxers by my medical doctor and told to rest. That next week was one I will never forget because the pain was unbearable. This was a crushing blow because I loved playing sports! As a long time chiropractic patient, my father took me to see a Chiropractor. Soon I was not only running track again but went on to play football in high school as well. That experience left a lasting impression on me. I knew then, I wanted to be a Chiropractic Physician.
I have been very fortunate during my career as a Chiropractor to have the opportunity to help so many people. Daily in my practice, we see patients with conditions like low back pain, sciatic pain, headaches, fibromyalgia, arthritis, sports injuries, shoulder and arm pain, children with colic and ear aches and even pregnant women, just to name a few. We also see many patients whom have been unable to find relief from their symptoms through traditional treatment methods.
Being a Doctor of Chiropractic has been quite a life changing experience because I get the chance to witness the miracles of the human body on a daily basis. I have had patients cry when they tell me about suffering years with chronic pain, only now to feel relief after their adjustments. I have helped sick children overcome bouts with colic and miserable ear infections. After my experience, I’ve assisted other athletes to improve their physical performance through Chiropractic care. These are great stories, aren’t they? The world is filled with endless accounts of how Chiropractic care has changed people’s lives. Do I have a great job or what!
So, why have you not been to a Chiropractor? There is usually one response to that question…”I didn’t know they could help me.” My thought is this…Chiropractic care is the largest alternative health care profession in the world today. Research has proven its effectiveness as one of the safest forms of health care available. And it all takes place without drugs or invasive surgery. Chiropractic care looks for the cause of your problems rather than just treating symptoms. Chiropractic has changed my life and has helped my family in so many ways.
