I have a passion for treating and rehabilitating patients with back pain, neck pain and headaches. I also have advanced training in treating and rehabilitating those with sport related injuries of the spine and extremities. I have had the opportunity to treat and/or train athletes of many levels, from elementary school to professional.
I enjoy spending time with family, exercise, and outdoor sports. I enjoy writing books and articles. I have currently written 4 books and multiple articles on various topics.
When choosing to see a Doctor of Chiropractic from NLCC expect a thorough history, a thorough examination, and an explanation of your condition. If we feel you have a chiropractic condition, expect a treatment plan with reevaluations to determine your progress. If we feel you are not a good candidate for chiropractic care, expect a referral to the appropriate provider.
