Confessions are tough. Real tough.

But, sometimes they help clear the air so there’s no misunderstanding. I want to tell you about a confession I have, but let me say a few other things first. Let me tell you my story…

A long time ago ago something happened that changed my life forever.

Back then, I was working construction as a pipe fitter, and I developed a painful condition know as “lumbalgia.” In my case, it came on bit by bit with work. The pain in my low back was so intense, that had trouble standing up straight and I couldn’t even walk around in the morning after getting out of bed. I could barely put my pants on to work for the day. I was taking aspirin like it was going out of style and was at my wits end because I thought that was my only option. A friend of mine convinced me to give his chiropractor a try.

Trying Chiropractic

The chiropractor did an exam and then “adjusted” my spine. The adjustment didn’t hurt, it actually felt good. I got relief, and I could walk normally again. It worked so well that I went to chiropractic school myself.

Boy… what a wake up call.

School was tough- really tough. I always remembered why I wanted to be a chiropractor, though, so I could make others feel like I did after I started getting care. I graduated after 4 tough years and have been serving patients since then.

I was also fortunate enough to meet my wife, Dr. Jill, in chiropractic school and have since had two great kids- Megan and Troy. My wife is also a chiropractor, so now we get to bounce ideas off of each other. I usually have to pay for the advice, though, by doing some extra dishwashing, cleaning, or mowing the lawn more frequently than I want. I guess that’s the price I have to pay for good advice from my wife!
