Over 30 years ago something happened that changed my life forever. Back then, I was a sophomore in college, and doing well as a second basemen on the baseball team. Then, without warning, I started to develop low back pain that was so intense that playing baseball was out of the question.
The medical doctor's just gave me pills, and said it would eventually go away, but it didn't. In my prime, and missing out on what I had worked so hard for was frustrating. Scared, and upset, and not getting any better, my coach had no choice but to bench me. I was devastated.
Then, something happened that changed my life forever. My roommate took me to see a chiropractor.
Under his care, I was on the playing field again within a week, and doing better than before. Looking back, it's clear to me that meeting this chiropractor was the turning point in my life. In fact, it worked so well that I decided to go to chiropractic school myself.
I am a graduate from Life University School of Chiropractic in 1996 and have been in practice for 24 years. I am proud to have eleven chiropractors in my family, one of which is my wife, Dr. Christine.
