I first went to a chiropractor when I was fifteen years old. I was injured playing football. I would go see the chiropractor on and off through my high school years whenever I had an injury. By my junior year I knew I wanted to become a chiropractor. I went on to college taking classes that I needed to get into Chiropractic College. I played football through my college years, so I would end up seeing the chiropractor every time I ended up with various injuries.
It wasn’t until I got to chiropractic school that I learned what becoming a chiropractor truly was. I thought in becoming a chiropractor I would help people overcome various injuries to their neck and back. This seemed like a great way to help people. But as I sat in on my first chiropractic philosophy class my life changed forever.
I started to learn about things like our bodies ability to self heal, innate intelligence, nerve interference and vitalism. It totally changed the way what it meant to be a chiropractor and my future in chiropractic. I started to realize that I wasn’t going to be a back doctor by helping people with injuries. But rather becoming the most important doctor that anyone can see in their lifetime. To help assist the body in removing vertebral subluxations and nerve interference was a far greater life work. To allow that person to become the best that they can be was pretty heady stuff.
It is with that excitement and passion that I have for being a chiropractor 28 years later. It is our mission to assist the body in removing the nerve interference and allow the body to be self healing and self regulating and to help teach others this life principal.
In my free time I enjoy doing outside activities with my family. My wife Lin and our five daughters Michele, Nicole, Danielle, Reilly and Grace.
