It was during one of my softball games. I will ever forget that day because of the intense pain I left with from the field. Radiating pain down both my legs. I could barely walk. I thought I would never play again the pain was so bad. I didn't want to go to the hospital. I didn't want to have to take drugs or medications for the rest of my life. I wanted someone to help me. I wanted the help fast.Then something happened that would change everything...My mom brought me to see the chiropractor she had been going to. This was my very first experience with a chiropractor. I mean I had watched my mom get treated several times but never once was I the patient until now. He explained to me that he incorporated Kinesiology into his diagnostic skills to help him figure out what muscles and nerves were being the most affected. It was the way he explained the body. The muscles. The nerves. How it was all connected. I was amazed.Now I'm a sports chiropractor helping people feel better and returning them to activity without hesitation or fear that their injury will come back. Having that experience at such an early age had a profound effect on me. It made me take my passion for art, sport and science and bring them together. I wanted to do what he did for me, for others.I'm doing this because I am passionate about helping people. I am a firm believer that our bodies can heal themselves. Now don't get me wrong there is a time and place for traditional medicine, science and intervention. But a majority of our pain symptoms can be fixed naturally. If we can understand how our bodies work, the physiology and then we can begin to understand how to heal our bodies.
