I want to share with you why I became a chiropractor.
As a student at Penn State, I was studying Premed. I always wanted to be a doctor to help people be more healthy. My Sophomore year, I was preparing for the MCAT’s and something didn’t feel right. I was thinking to myself that I didn’t want to be another doctor just pushing medications and surgery on people. There had to be a better way.
I made an appointment to speak with Dr. Mitchell, the Dean of Premed. He interviewed me for a half hour, asking me questions about what I like, what my goals are and my doubts. At the very end, I remember him saying, “Russell, you should be a chiropractor.” Really? A chiropractor? I said, “But Dr. Mitchell, I want to be a real doctor.”
Like most people, I had no idea what a chiropractor was or did. He then gave me a list of over 20 health related professions: dentistry, podiatry, pharmaceutical research, veterinary medicine, etc. Over the following 2 years, I went through that list. At the beginning of my last semester, the only thing left on the list was CHIROPRACTIC!
I kept looking at that sheet of paper. Then said what do I have to lose and went to the library at Penn State. I started my research into chiropractic. I couldn’t believe what I was reading. Wow, chiropractic isn’t about back pain? Chiropractic is about how the body works? Chiropractic is about how the nervous system controls all functions of the body? NOW THIS MAKES SENSE!
I then graduated from Penn State and began meeting with several local chiropractors in New Jersey. What an eye opener and right away I knew I wanted to be a chiropractor. Each doctor I met with went to different schools but they all said if they had to do it over again, each said they would go to the biggest and best school, “Life Chiropractic College.”
Well, if I am going to become a chiropractor, I am going to the best school for it. I then started my venture to become a chiropractor at Life College in Marietta, Georgia. It was at this point I started to get adjusted myself for the health benefits. I didn’t expect to feel a difference but within a couple of visits, I noticed immediate relief of a bronchial condition I suffered with for over 10 years. Medical doctors pushed inhalers to my parents to give to me. Not one ever gave me relief. Now, finally after all these years, an amazing thing called chiropractic allowed me to breath normally again for the last 24 years. I was able to play soccer again during the colder months without gasping for air. On top of that, I wasn’t inhaling those chemical laden inhalers that have several dangerous side effects.
So, I became a chiropractor almost 20 years ago. I wanted to share the amazing benefits of chiropractic. I want you to know what chiropractic really is, like I found out 25 years ago. Almost 13 years ago, I came back to my hometown to give back to the community I grew up and love so much.
Chiropractic is about removing interference from the nervous system, allowing the body to function optimally. Chiropractic has so many health benefits improving functions of every organ, muscle, tissue and cell in the body. Over 20 years, not only have I seen people come in for pain and get relief of their back pain and neck pain, but we’ve also helped many children and adults get relief of their ear infections, acid reflux, hiatal hernias, asthma and allergies, migraines, fibromyalgia, lower blood pressure, reduced stress, improved sleep, improved sports performance and much more.
