Q: What got you into this specific medical field?
A: Years ago, I injured my shoulder and neck playing hockey. I was working with a group of doctors and was being prescribed lots of anti-inflammatory medication. Nothing seemed to work. Finally I went to see a chiropractor. I was skeptical. I had never been to see a chiropractor before and I was desperate. After being evaluated and having some X-rays, my chiropractor gave me my first chiropractic adjustment. I felt immediate relief. I was completely amazed. I had so many questions and needed answers. That was how I was started my journey. Ever since then I have continued to learn as much as I can about chiropractic care, health and wellness.
