I became interested in chiropractic because of my Mom. When I was a sophomore in high school she was rear-ended by a drunk driver. My Mom developed excruciating low back pain and sciatica. She was consulting doctors; however, her only treatment consisted of pain medication, muscle relaxers, anti-inflammatory medication, and rest. She lost feeling in her right leg and was in chronic pain. She started gaining weight because she was not able to exercise due to the severity of her pain. Her health continued to decline. Finally, after four years of suffering, she heard a chiropractor speak at a health fair about sciatica. She made an appointment and the chiropractor did a thorough consultation, examination, x-rays, and a report of findings. After a series of adjustments, it was the first time she felt sensation in her leg! I was 19 and curious about what was different with her treatment. The chiropractor showed me her x-rays and where the nerve was being pinched. He explained how the adjustment helped to remove the pressure and allow the body to heal itself naturally. It was an “Ah-ha” moment and I knew in my heart that this is what I was destined to do. It was my mission to see that other families did not have to suffer needlessly like my Mom and my family.
It is my privilege to treat families of all ages including infants and our seniors. With the opioid epidemic completely out of control, we know that the majority of people became addicted to opioids because it was legally prescribed to them. If someone is only prescribed pain meds without any treatment for the cause of the pain, we know this is a recipe for disaster. Chiropractic is proven to be the number one choice in treating back pain and it is 100% natural and drug-free.
