For me, Chiropractic is almost a spiritual thing. I know God is our creator, and he created an amazing, self healing body. I believe the power that made the body, heals the body. With Chiropractic we remove the interference, and reconnect the brain (neuroplasticity). The body heals when connected to the brain, it’s really that simple. I pray everyday for God to guide me to find and correct that interference on every single person I touch.
My Chiropractic story:
I come from a family that went to the Chiropractor. Starting with my Grandfather, Gmother and Dad and Mom, Aunts and Uncles, I’ve been adjusted since I was 5 years old. I never had major problems or sickness as a kid, and it’s funny how God works. You see, around 15 years old I had a problem of not knowing what I wanted to be. I loved working on cars, but found out real quick I didn’t love other people’s cars, LOL. I took some architect classes, but didn’t like that either. I would try to avoid career days because of thefrustration. Well, one day I hurt my lower back lifting weights in football offseason. It was the first time I had a sustained pain. We went to our family Chiropractor, and after a few adjustments, he fixed me! I was amazed, and it was because of that pain that sparked an interest, and after more literature and explanation given by my Chiro., I decided to be a Chiropractor. One side note, I was severely injured at 19 years old in a car accident. My upper spine was twisted. I missed 2 weeks of college and 1 month of work because of neck pain and headaches. Once again, my Chiropractor, this time after several months fixed me! These 2 incidents, while painful, were Godsends for my direction in life.
I graduated from Port Neches- Groves in 1988 and completed pre med courses to fulfill chiropractic school prerequisites from Lamar University. I attended Texas Chiropractic college, and graduated with academic recognition in 1994. I completed 120 hour course on prenatal and pediatric chiropractic care from Life college in 1996 and earned a fellowship from the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. I also completed 120 hour course on sports chiropractic from TCC in 1998 and earned the Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician distinction. I’ve taken over 300 hours of Applied Kinesiology, and multiple courses in nutrition and natural healing.
