My health journey started after I had a history of health problems and injuries. At 5 years of age, I had a severe concussion that left me hospitalized with loss of memory for 3 days. I was diagnosed with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis when I was 8. At 11 I had an appendectomy. I had another brain trauma at 14 that left me with another concussion. I had a neck injury in gymnastics when I was 14 that never really went away and ended my career as a gymnast. When I was 20 years old, I was diagnosed with Epstein-Bahr Virus and Fibromyalgia and sent out of the doctor's office with a bottle of pills. After a few auto accidents and a back injury, my whole body was in agony. I was a 23 year old living in a 73 year old body. I had back and neck pain, headaches, TMJ syndrome, chronic strep throat, endometriosis and all of my muscles ached. My doctors were giving me no hope and no relief so I turned to chiropractic and alternative medicine.
Now I am a Chiropractor and Doctor of Pastoral Science and Medicine and I use all of the techniques in my practice that helped restore my health: Gentle and specific manipulations for the spine, Neuromuscular Therapy for the muscles, and whole food nutrition and herbs to nourish and help heal the body. These techniques combined decrease the healing time for most physical problems and restores the body back to normal function.
