"Chiropractic has been a personal experience for me throughout my life. At the age of sixteen, I had a traumatizing injury while throwing the discus at the Military Academy at West Point. I was taking my turn at the discus when my back gave out. I fell to the ground and I was unable to get up. I was in enormous pain. The pain was so bad I had to be carried from the event. Within a week my leg began to atrophy and I was in constant severe pain. After lying in bed for over a week and surgery as my only perceivable option I saw a Chiropractor in my home town. He examined and x-rayed me and then he began Chiropractic care immediately. I walked out that day with no pain and an image of what I was destined to do for the rest of my life. I am a Chiropractor now but I was a Chiropractic patient first. I understand what it's like to be in pain and unable to care for myself.
I look forward to helping you”

My life in chiropractic started the day my daughter started having seizures as a young child. We looked for help in the usual places with little success. We were directed to see a chiropractor for help. The doctor of chiropractic analyzed my daughter and found a misalignment in my daughter's spine just beneath her skull. After a series of treatments, the seizures stopped. It has been more than 25 years since her first episode and she has never had one since. At that moment I knew chiropractic was very special and I needed to be part of chiropractic. I sold my house, up-rooted my family, and changed my life forever. I consider it a privilege to help you and your family change your lives.
