California/Oregon - Paris, France - U.A.E.
I am in my 28th year of active practice and a graduate from Life Chiropractic College West in the San Francisco Bay Area. For most of my career, I practiced in the states of California and Oregon. After working with my father, grandfather and brother (all chiropractors) I settled in the state of Oregon and started my own clinic.
I have had many opportunities to treat a wide range of individuals in my career from 6 month old children to celebrities, professional and Olympic athletes. One thing remains the same, people want effective treatment, to feel better quickly and find long term stability.
It actually took time to realize the effectiveness of chiropractic care. Growing up in a chiropractic family, being treated by my father and grandfather, I assumed we were "normal"…rarely getting sick, performing well in sports and recovering from injuries quickly. Now, with two active, athletic and intelligent college kids, raised the same way, I clearly see the benefits.
I have realized over time, that implementing healthy strategies first, including chiropractic care, will help people steer clear of some of the unintended traps medicine can have. Going to the chiropractor should almost always be the first place a patient goes whether they have pain, a cold, fatigue, not sleeping well or headaches. Instead, many people try a chiropractor as a "last resort" and then are surprised to find almost immediate improvement. Since many problems start with some mechanical dysfunction from posture, stress, inactivity, chiropractic treatment, designed to repair those problems is far more "logical" than taking drugs to mask the symptoms and ignoring the source of the problems.
An ongoing highlight of my career has been to serve as a chiropractor for NBC Sports Television and the annual "American Century Celebrity Golf Championship tournament". Our on-site clinic provides full chiropractic and physiotherapy care to most of the participants of the event. Participants include celebrities, as well as high level current and former athletes from all major professional sports. There have even been a few Olympic gold medalists that make getting adjusted a big part of their routine to stay healthy, perform better and heal quickly.
