Why did you choose chiropractic?
I chose chiropractic as a career for many reasons, too many to list here. I was raised in a family of Chiropractors and other health care professionals, and I am consistently amazed at the power of the human body, soul, and spirit, and how they respond to stress, injury, and insult.
In a short example: having experienced back pain myself due to an injury, I was amazed at how much better I felt after being treated by a chiropractor and how the solution seemed so “simple” because the pain I felt was not simple at all.

Have you ever experienced back pain?
When I was 17 years old at work, I had climbed up about 30 feet high to the top of a large shelving unit in a home improvement store to look for items. As I bent over to pick up a bag of fake snow (which is EXTREMELY light), I felt what I can only describe as a lightning bolt of pain in my low back. I stayed hunched over, and slowly made it to the fetal position while I lay there for about 20 minutes in a cold sweat. After the pain had subsided, I slowly crawled down and told the boss I hurt my back and had to go to the chiropractor. I drove for about 30 minutes, still in a cold sweat and discomfort in my low back. I got adjusted, and I was able to sit and stand and walk with much less pain. I was still sore, but I returned to work and finished my shift. I didn’t do any more heavy lifting and I was very careful on how I bent at the waist for the next few days, and I got adjusted a couple more times and did some icing at home.
