I came to High Point to practice after graduating from National College of Chiropractic in 1979. Looking back, I can honestly say, I was ” Wet behind the Ears.” As I gained experience and proficiency treating musculo-skeletal conditions like neck pain, back pain, disc problems, pinched nerves, and headaches; I realized that some patients were taking a lot of medication. I remember counting 15 medicines for a particular patient and decided I needed to learn to do more. After 3 years of postgraduate study in Internal Medicine on weekends, I became board certified as a Chiropractic Internist and now feel competent to recommend natural alternatives to patients for many chronic illnesses that are so prevalent in our busy society today. With rising costs of health care and insurance, prevention will always be the best of medicine. The purpose of Chiropractic and our office is to relieve nerve pressure caused by spinal misalignment for better health; as well as, the prevention of illness and disease. We are dedicated to alleviating pain while helping our patients return to active healthy lifestyles and add life to the years of the patients we are so privileged to serve.
My father was a Chiropractor in rural Kentucky and took care of all kinds of problems from back pain to sore throats. There weren’t as many doctors to choose from back then like there are these days. That’s how I learned that we have the natural abilities to get well if we are given the right circumstances. With all the known side effects of medications today, doesn’t it make more sense to look for natural alternatives before giving medicine to your family. That’s what more doctors are suggesting now and that’s just what my father did. It’s why Chiropractors say ” Chiropractic 1st, medicine 2nd, and surgery last ! “
