My life commitment to chiropractic
I realized that there was so much more to chiropractic than just back pain.
My lifetime commitment to chiropractic began when I was 15 years old. I was in my second season of rowing when I started to develop daily back pain. It was then that my parents realized that I had scoliosis and began taking me for chiropractic treatments.
Chiropractic prevented me from having back surgery, and allows me to continue living the active lifestyle that I enjoy.
Not only did it help relieve my back pain, but I never had another ear infection after my first adjustment, which I had battled my entire childhood. That was when I realized that there was so much more to chiropractic than just back pain. It didn’t take long for me to conclude that I would someday become a chiropractor.
It has been a long journey, but I am forever grateful to the many chiropractors who helped me see what true health really is. Most importantly, I am grateful to D.D. Palmer, the founder of chiropractic, for inventing such an amazing form of manual health care.
