Skilled in Hands-on Adjusting, Activator and Network Spinal Analysis
I found chiropractic like so many other people…after trying everything else. From birth, I was faced with one health challenge after the next. I was born six weeks premature and had a long stay in an oxygen tent. After that my childhood was a long list of ailments i.e. allergies to just about everything, asthma, nasal polyps, hernias, appendicitis and some others I’m sure I’ve forgotten.
I grew up in Stratford where hockey is part of childhood. I loved playing but soon it became clear that I couldn’t breathe well on the ice. The asthma symptoms were triggered by the cold. I was wheezing, had to take frequent breaks and eventually was left behind. I can still picture how frustrated I felt watching my friends play as I sat on the bench and tried to breathe.
It was when I was introduced to a chiropractor at the age of ten that things began to turn around. I could breathe better, play sports and stop using my inhalers except for very occasionally. I’ll never forget how I felt when my chiropractor finally explained why my body was acting the way it was. It made sense.
What he taught me and the hope it gave me is the driving force for my practice to this day. My practice is now centered on finding ways to ensure every patient heals and gets back to doing what they love… and finding ways to take them to new levels!
