"I became a chiropractor because when I myself was going through unbelievable neck, back, and muscle pain. A chiropractor was the only doctor who was able to give lasting relief from my suffering. And he did it without prescribing pharmaceuticals or cutting into me. I also liked the fact that he took the time to communicate with me about the different causes of neck and back pain. My first chiropractor was the first to really talk with me about the pain that comes with back problems. He also talked to me about chiropractic, pain and my overall health and wellness. Now that I too am a chiropractor, I emulate his compassionate approach. I take every opportunity to talk about what it is to be a chiropractor, providing solutions for neck, back, and general muscle and joint pain with my patients. I want them to know that we can offer many of them the relief they are in search of."
