Why am I a Chiropractor?
I was diagnosed with spinal scoliosis when I was 13 years old. After consulting with an orthopedist, the common medical treatment for this condition consisted of either a back brace worn 23 hours a day or Harrington rods surgically implanted in the spine if my curvatures progressed.
My mother saw a chiropractor in her early 20s and took me in for an examination and regular adjustments. After 6 months of care, my x-rays showed improvement in my curvatures that the orthopedist could not explain. Having full mobility of my spine is essential to me since I have been an avid horseback rider since I was young. My goal as a chiropractor is to give back to others the health, mobility, and opportunities to live life to the fullest, just as my childhood doctor did for me!
