My passion for chiropractic began back in high school. I had a football injury to my knee that my orthopedic doctor claimed could only be fixed with surgery. Wanting to avoid surgery, I turned to my brother who was in chiropractic college at the time to see if chiropractic could help me. As a result of those adjustments, my pain went away and I avoided surgery. It was this experience with chiropractic led me to become a chiropractor.
I graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in February 1995 and began my life-long quest to educate people about chiropractic. My first practice was in Tempe AZ and I have been involved in clinics all across the U.S.
I have helped a lot of patients with back and neck related problems over the years but one that stands out in my mind is a young 2-year old girl who did not have normal bowel movements for the first 2 years of her life. Her mom, who was a patient of mine, asked if I could help her daughter. Because of repeated visits to various doctors for her problem, the girl was petrified of doctors and screamed through the whole exam. I did the exam and first adjustment through her tears but afterwards she went home and had her first normal bowel movement that night. Over the course of many visits she would come in, give me a hug, grab my finger and lead me back to the adjustment room. She continues to do well today.
I have four healthy kids of my own who were all first adjusted when they were just hours old. Helping kids through chiropractic is a passion of mine. Kids respond well to chiropractic and seeing them bounce back from falls and the stresses their young bodies go through is so rewarding. The saying goes, “As the twig is bent so grows the tree.” That saying vividly describes the connection between the spine and the growing body.
My mission is to help as many people as possible obtain a healthy lifestyle through chiropractic care. Whether you are in pain from a new injury, chronic illness or simply want a wellness check on the condition of your spine, call me at Palatine Wellness Group today and learn how chiropractic can help you.
