“I am a first-hand witness of how effective chiropractic care can be. I suffered severe back pain many years ago when I bent over to pick up my laptop from the coffee table. I had done this move countless times before. But this time, I heard a pop. Instantly, the pain took me to my knees. I was unable to walk or sit comfortably. I was told to take a pain medication and rest for a week.
I was never one to take pharmaceutical drugs, and moreover, I could not afford a week of downtime! I was encouraged by a friend to see a chiropractor. I took that advice and was amazed by how quickly I got relief. During this time, I was a representative for a pharmaceutical company. I was becoming disillusioned at seeing patients deal with side-effects while using drugs to resolve chronic issues. The drugs seemed to just suppress symptoms and cause more problems that they were resolving. I was drawn to learn more about the science of Chiropractic, which helps the body heal itself naturally. That day that I hurt my back was the day that put me on a path to a new career – as a doctor of chiropractic.
I strongly believe that there is a place for all the miraculous medical breakthroughs we are experiencing in the medical community today. There are many life-saving drugs and surgical procedures available to us. However, in our haste for a quick fix, we often turn to these measures much too early. Many times, our health issues can be resolved completely without the need for drugs and surgery and the risks these bring. Sometimes, simple and natural is the best way.”
