After I had just graduated out of college, I was working as a server in a restaurant. During one of my work shifts, I was carrying a load of heavy trays and completely threw out my lower back. My friend, who was a massage therapist, had recommended a chiropractor, but at the time, I had never had any experience with chiropractors and was one of the biggest skeptics in the world. However, I took my friend’s advice, got treated, educated, and got really quick results which was incredible to me.
There was one other incident that completely astounded me after being treated by this chiropractor. You see, as a young kid, I had suffered from horrible allergies my whole life, constantly sniffling and rubbing my nose. I had been through all the allergy medications and injections and by the time I was 16, I had said, “I’d rather suffer with allergies than be on all these medications.”
One month after being treated by the chiropractor who had been working on my lower back, I had seen someone suffering with allergies while we were golfing. All of a sudden, I had noticed the allergies that I have always suffered with were just gone! I’ll be honest and say my allergies were about 90-95% completely solved after seeing this chiropractor. I learned that it is not uncommon that when someone comes in for chiropractic’s on specific issue, other issues may be solved as well.
I’ve been a chiropractor for over 18 years and I’m honestly more passionate today than I’ve ever been. At the end of the day, my core passion is helping people which gives me the greatest joy. With chiropractic, I see all the ways I can help people with so many different issues. Most people don’t realize chiropractic is dealing with the nervous system, which deals with the function of your body meaning it can affect your mood, sleep, even the way you express emotions. It affects your life at a very fundamental level.
