I was given the opportunity to shadow a local Chiropractor in my home town and was thrilled after I watched her adjust an older lady on my first day. The patient came in with chronic pain and just a dim sadness in her eyes. After the adjustment not only did she stand up straighter, she was moving without pain and restriction and she even had a twinkle back in her eyes. I was sold, if I could make that big of a change in someone’s life with just a few maneuvers and the patient could see those kind of results, I knew this was my path.
This also ingrained the knowledge that one technique won’t always work to adjust every patient. I decided to learn as many chiropractic techniques as possible, so that I would be able to help as many people as possible in whatever way their body would respond. I have never stopped learning, I think this is one of the reasons I see such great results in my patients health. I’ve learned that patients bodies are like puzzles, no two are alike and I love figuring out the puzzle.
