Doctor of Chiropractic, CBP®
"What is your most important asset?" This question literally changed my life. I was made aware very early on, that my most important asset is my Health.
Unfortunately, I really didn't know what it meant to be healthy. I was under the assumption that just because I 'looked good' and 'felt good', I must therefore be healthy. In one moment I realized that my assumption could not have been further from the truth.
I was a decorated athlete in many sports. One day during a routine practice and a routine play, the unthinkable occurred; I suffered an injury. I couldn't function due to the searing pain that suddenly took control of my body and my life. I was assisted off of the field, and left to think about all of the uncertainties that soon flooded my mind.
Simple everyday activities were now uphill challenges that I had to mentally prepare for and physically guard against. After seeing numerous trainers, physical therapists, medical doctors, and sports doctors, I soon realized that none of them could pinpoint the exact cause of my pain; instead they offered me "pills" as a way to mask my symptoms.
Every image of what I wanted to be - and what I thought I could be - was slipping through my fingers. I was at a point that I felt I could no longer reach my life's potential.
The day I met my chiropractor changed everything.
My chiropractor informed me that despite what I thought, I was unhealthy due to misalignments in my spine. The x-rays demonstrated that my spine had been damaged - much like a pile of kindling waiting for a match - moments away from incurring more injuries. The misalignments in my spine were putting extensive and dangerous tension on the delicate nerves flowing out of my spinal cord. Nerve interference was not only responsible for pain and discomfort, but a host of other health problems.
My body wasn't functioning at its potential; my injury had nothing to do with the way I looked, how old I was, or how strong I felt. It had everything to do with loss of function brought on by spinal misalignments.
My chiropractor and I worked on correcting my spine, which gave my body the opportunity to heal and function at its full potential by fixing the source of the problem. From that point forward, I was empowered to take care of my health, because I finally knew what it meant to be healthy. I also found my calling and purpose in life. I had learned the truth about what it takes to regain one's health and live a truly healthy life, and knew it was my responsibility to share it with millions of people out there.
Every day I am blessed to live my passion as a chiropractor, and extend help to those who need it the most. I am privileged to be able to encourage others to achieve their absolute best, by never settling for a lifetime of underperformance in any aspect of their lives.
This is just my story. I look forward to helping you to live yours.
