"I was first introduced to chiropractics after being in a severe car accident the summer before my senior year in high school. After seeing multiple doctors and undergoing several surgeries with no relief, I thought I would have to live with constant headaches, neck pain, and low back pain for the rest of my life. A chiropractor helped me regain my freedom from pain and improve my quality of life. I wanted to help others in the same way but found a common practice of standardized care that often neglected the whole health of the patient. I started my own practice so that I could have the freedom to treat the whole patient and tailor treatments to meet individual needs. I believe a holistic approach is absolutely necessary in order to truly heal. It is an honor to be a trusted resource for my patients and I look forward to helping them regain pain-free functionality and improve their overall health for years to come."

"When you are a man,
sometimes you wear stretchy pants."
"We're better than drugs." speaks to the euphoric feeling and pain relief patients experience after an adjustment. Pain clinics have opened up all over the US with the sole purpose of prescribing medications to treat chronic pain. We offer drug-free alternatives, usually by treating the cause of the problem rather than the symptom, which eases naturally as result. Pressure on the nerve roots because of misalignments in our back and neck bones will often cause irritation and/or malfunctions to their many destinations throughout our whole body. A single nerve root contains a combination of outgoing and incoming fibers for communication between the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) and the peripheral nervous system (muscles, organs, tissues, basically everything). Some of those fibers are for sensation (including pain), but the majority are for function. That's why so many people who get a chiropractic adjustment not only feel better but also move and function better. I am thrilled to have treated many patients that have been able to successfully discontinue the use of prescription medications and lead healthier happier lives.
