My Chiropractic Story
I have to admit, there was a time in my life many years ago when I believed that someday a "pill" would be invented that would solve all of our health problems.
My tremendous faith in medicine lead me to the point one day that I found myself taking 6-10 Motrin a day like candy for a shoulder injury that constantly hurt. I had days that I wish I could just detach it from my body because the crippling pain was so intense.
The pain brought me to the point to where all the Motrin, Tylenol and Advil I was taking started taking its toll on my stomach and I found myself several times on my knees sick to my stomach. When I got to that point, I decided there had to be a better way of dealing with this problem. My mother suggested I give Chiropractic a try. But why? My neck or back didn't hurt. I hadn't been in any recent car accident. And I was in great shape. At the time, I was training for Olympic Trials at a local university in Track and Field. So I took my mother's advice to the team physician for his expert opinion on Chiropractic. Much to my surprise, he was so against me seeing a chiropractor that he threatened to have me thrown off the team if I went. I became very discouraged and depressed by his negative opposition. But I felt in my heart that I needed to listen to my mother.
So I went to my mother's chiropractor who was over 60 years old at the time working out of an office attached to his home. He was a kind and quite old man, and didn't speak much. So when I told him what the problem was all he said was, "okay come lay down". He felt the back of my neck and upper back. He massaged my neck for a minute then with a gentle force made an adjustment to the lower bones of my neck. I didn't really know what to think at the time. I had mixed emotions. I felt a tremendous release of pressure in my neck, head and upper back. Surprisingly, I also felt relief from the intense pain in my shoulder. I was shocked, amazed, puzzled, happy and excited all at the same time. All I could say was, "How, how do you do that!?!". He just smiled, shook my hand then left the room to see his next patient. From that day on, I relentlessly researched the connection between Chiropractic and healing which led me to my own career as a chiropractor. To this day, I and my family continue to live the Chiropractic wellness lifestyle which has cleared up my chronic strep throat, my sisters debilitating asthma, my wife's chronic migraines and has kept my children antibiotic free since they've been born. And I will never forget that kind old man who changed my life forever.
Today I enjoy changing lives for the better in my own Chiropractic practice. Over the last 12 years, I have helped many people of all ages from around the world, including China, England, Germany, South America, and across the U.S. get out of pain, breathe better, sleep better, get off unneeded medication and just plain feel better through Chiropractic care.
