After playing from 1968 to 1970 as an offensive lineman for the Cincinnati Bengals and New York Jets I was forced to retire do to knee surgery, “If you can’t run you can’t play?”. I just figured that I would get on with the rest of my life, but soon I began to have low back pain, which at times was almost unbearable.

By 1974 the pain in my back and legs was so intense at times that I had to hold on to the driver’s side door to raise my butt off the seat which eased my pain while I drove. It was at that time that I finally saw a chiropractor, Dr. Bill King in Covington, KY. After the first adjustment I drove home with no pain in my legs or low back. It was at this time I knew what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. Read more…

Having been a teacher, my family couldn’t understand why I would give up a “good career” to start another. Especially one that was not considered (30 years ago) mainstream or scientific. With each patient who suffered years of pain only to find help I am thankful for my choice.

My cousin experienced a chiropractic miracle. His son was born with a club foot. The doctors told him it was hereditary and would require numerous surgeries. With no family history he decided to seek chiropractic for his newborn son. The baby was large and too crowded inside mom’s belly causing nerve impingement to that leg and foot. Within 3 weeks the foot was turning and moving and needed no surgeries. This was a message that anything is possible when interference is removed with chiropractic adjustments. Never give up on the healing power within us. Read more…

Growing up in a chiropractic family, I took for granted how healthy I was because of regular chiropractic care. After leaving home, low back pain gradually became part of my daily routine. “Maybe it will just go away” became a regular saying for me in regards to my back pain. I finally got off the couch and scheduled an appointment with a new chiropractor, within 1 week I felt better than I had in months.

“I can’t believe that I waited this long” is all I kept thinking about after experiencing low back pain relief from chiropractic care. I had grown up with regular chiropractic care, but this was the first time in my life that I really appreciated how much it helped me. That is when I decided I wanted to become a chiropractor. …read more»
