Unlike conventional medicine, which focuses on attempting to treat disease once it occurs, traditional chiropractic emphasize improving your health in an effort to reduce the risk of pain and illness in the first place.
Most people would rather be healthy and avoid illness, if they could. The problem is that we have been brought up on quick fixes and a lack of faith of the bodies ability to heal itself. We run to the doctor for a runny nose and demand a medication to fix the runny nose, not having faith in the fact that the body is actually producing the mucus as a protective barrier from other germs trying to enter. So now you take the decongestant which removes the mucus and you take away the bodies defense system. This sequence of events is true for almost every drug for every symptom that there is out there.
You must learn to think for yourselves, and to never stop learning.

I have been a chiropractor for since 1996 but an athlete since I played baseball with the boys in the early pee wee leagues. I continued with sports throughout my high school career: softball, basketball, skiing and competitive horseback riding. In chiropractic school I was introduced to functional exercise and structural rehabilitation and continue to do this type of exercise to this day with great success.
