What influenced your decision to become a Chiropractor?
While I was in my junior year at ECU I injured my knee. I couldn’t climb stairs or go any faster than a walk much less do any type of physical activity. I went to the doctor and he did an exam and x-rays. He came back into the room and said everything looked fine on the x-ray just take some pain medication and hopefully it would go away. He went on to say if my knee continued to hurt I could get an MRI and possible surgery to determine what was going on. I did take the pain medication which did not relieve any of the pain in my knee and at that point, I knew I had to do something different.
Many of my family members had been to a chiropractor and had great results. So, I decided to go see a chiropractor. When he first adjusted my knee it almost immediately took the pressure away and by later that day I could walk without feeling pain with every step. I continued to receive chiropractic adjustments and it wasn’t long before I could go up and down stairs, run, and play sports without any problem. Not only did the chiropractor adjust my knee but he also showed me the importance of checking and adjusting the entire spine.
That is when I knew I wanted to become a Chiropractor. I was getting a degree in Exercise Physiology with the intention of helping people become more physically active and healthy but realized there were people that couldn’t do normal physical activities due to pain and musculoskeletal problems. These were the people that I wanted to help. I wanted to help people go from limited activities to unlimited possibilities whether they were athletes, weekend warriors, on-the-job workers, or the elderly. Along the way, however, I learned that there was so much more to chiropractic care than just pain relief. I saw the improvements in human biomechanics and performance along with better overall health in adults and children. That’s when I knew being a Chiropractor was the best job in the world!
