Many people who suffer from neck pain or low back pain have probably considered, or been recommended to consider, chiropractic care to help ease their symptoms and correct their problem. In an effort to provide the most up to date and effective care for patients over the past 17 years, I have been introduced to numerous therapies and solutions to offer patients pain relief and correction of the cause of their pain. In fact, I have numerous continuing education credits in non-Surgical Spinal Decompression for disc related injuries, Whiplash trauma from auto and sports accidents, Graston and Myofascial release therapy for tight muscles, ligament and cartilage damage as well as being Board Certified in Chronic Intractable Pain Syndrome and Peripheral Neuropathy and certified in Neurological Relief therapy. Despite all of this extensive training specifically for pain, I am most proud about all of the other health benefits that chiropractic care has to offer patients.

Many years ago I decided to include nutrition training and cellular detoxification training to my knowledge base. Adding in these additional therapies and becoming a Wellness Consultant in addition to being a Chiropractor has helped me to provide a wider scope of opportunities for patients to heal more completely and effectively. For example, not only can I continue to work with babies, children, teenagers, adults, seniors and the physically challenged with neuro-musculoskeletal problems, but I can also address their nutritional deficiencies and cellular deficiencies. I can order blood work and MRI / CT scans for patients as well as saliva, urine and fecal tests for patients. I can then recommend specific nutritional and lifestyle changes that will allow your body to heal more efficiently so you can get back to living life instead of living in misery.



Listed below are just a handful of issues that have been helped naturally with Nutrition Testing, Cellular Detoxification,Chiropractic care and dietary/lifestyle changes.  Many of the patients that come to me with these complaints have been to numerous other physicians and are co-managed with other providers. It is NOT my intent to say that I can fix anything/everything…what I AM saying is that we do not need to limit what natural health care can do. This list is still not all inclusive.  If you are wondering about an issue that is not listed, please feel free to ask.
