From the Doctor

Why did I become a chiropractor? It was more of a case of going into health care. While at the university in Canada, I was was working as an athletic trainer. I enjoyed this and so set my sights on either a career in physical therapy or sports medicine. There was one drawback in this career choice. I didn’t like drugs. My mother said, “How can you go into medicine if you are telling people not to take drugs?” I myself had not taken any drug for an illness since I was 12.

Then, I was in an accident just before the tryouts to compete in the Canada Games. I was in so much pain that I missed the entire day of competition and it took hours for me to get out of bed. I didn’t seem to be getting much better after the accident. So, out of desperation I went to my mom’s chiropractor. He adjusted me and you know what? I felt the best I had felt in years. Then I noticed my athletic performance began to improve. Also, while I was in school I came to the realization that taking care of athletes and taking care of everyone…was the same type of care. I had to do my best to help everyone get better, and I knew chiropractic was important, especially for the young. I was soon convinced of the efficacy of this type of treatment and switched my studies to chiropractic.

Now, here I am today, helping people with a form of health care that is non-invasive and drug-free. I am where I should be.
