Call For 1st Available Consultation:
Thank you for your interest in my practice and in upper cervical chiropractic care. For many Americans choosing a chiropractor is an important part of getting, and staying well.
I know, because like many of you, I am a chiropractic patient. I became a chiropractor because of the way chiropractic care positively changed my life.
I am a graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa, and a member of the Society of Chiropractic Orthospinology.
I first went to a chiropractor for mid and low back pain. Soon after being adjusted my pain decreased significantly. But! The most amazing change that happened was that my severe allergies began to go away. I didn’t expect that!
You see, I often suffered with sore throats and allergies, even as a child. In the morning I would would get up and use a warm wet cloth to clean my eyes. This lasted into my early college years–until I first received chiropractic care. I now no longer suffer from severe allergies and a chronic sore throat.
But, I’m not just the only one in my family who’s found help. My whole family is under upper cervical chiropractic care.
My Wife’s Chiropractic Story
My wife has found relief of her migraines, her repeated ear infections, and her low back pain with upper cervical care. Even during pregnancy she would get spinal check-ups, and receive an adjustment as needed. This would immediately relieve her low back discomfort. It has also made her pregnancies more pleasant. She has had both of our children without the use of drugs or surgery. We thank God that we have upper cervical care. She loves that the adjustment is so gentle.
My Daughter’s Eczema and Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care
My daughter story, though, is the real miracle in my opinion. She has had severe eczema and allergic dermatitis. At times her whole body has been covered in a rash. This all started at about 4 months old.
(Even before her first rash, my wife and I noticed that she was always restless; never once sleeping through the night in those four months, and requiring us to walk with her for an hour each night before she would sleep.)
We tried every cream we could find–as many as 50 different creams, oils, and lotions just to give her relief. Many would make her rashes worse, and even burn. We noticed that the creams with mineral oil, lanolin and other additives made her react worse. The disturbing thing is the fact that most were labeled “for eczema”. The rash was so bad that she would scratch until she bleed on her hands, the creases of her arms, and the back of her legs. Our pediatrician recommended we see a dermatologist.
The dermatologist was a very kind and said that is was one of the worse cases he had ever seen. He recommended steroid cream due to the risk of infection. He gave us one of the strongest steroids he could, one made for adults. He thought it would be the only thing that might help. We tried it, and it did help…for a little while.But her skin would always flare back up right after use.
We were then sent to a specialist in allergic conditions. My daughter’s skin was so bad that they could not do any testing. So they recommend 12 days of Prednisone to clear up the skin…enough to do the test. Once again it worked a little while, but as soon as we slowed the Prednisone down, it flared back up.
We tried everything but nothing helped. We started giving her a bath ever single night in slightly cool water because luke-warm water would hurt her. She would cry many times when first getting in, due to her rash. Immediately after the bath we would put on Vaseline to help seal in some moisture. At times, I would wrap her wounds with cotton cloth coated with Vaseline so she could get a few hours rest. We tried every elimination diet possible, except the water only diet.
It came down to the last straw when my daughter had a deadly allergic reaction to nuts. She ate a natural protein bar, which had nuts in, and began swelling up. Her airway was swelling. We took her to the E.R. and they gave her a oral prednisone and gave us an eip-junior. We still carry an epi-junior with with us to this day. Not long after she started having wheezing, a sign associated with asthma. And this was it… I knew something different had to happen.
The same day she started wheezing we drove 16 hours to Florida, only stopping for gas and food. We took her to see a pediatric upper cervical doctor, who did the gentle, precise technique of Orthospinology.
And after her first adjustment we went to the hotel and she slept through the night. This was the first time that I could remember her sleeping so long without scratching. Amazingly, she has not needed any more steroids since that day. Or Vaseline, or any other other creams, or lotions. She has only had fits of wheezing three times. We still do not eat wheat, but avoiding wheat only helped after her atlas (first bone in the neck) was adjusted.
Upper cervical care has given us our daughter back . And given us a happy, healthy daughter.
My Son’s Story
My son has been healthy all his life and has only needed his atlas adjusted three times in almost 2 years. Being a boy he seems to fall down and hit his head more often. I check him each time to make sure he keeps his atlas in place so he can have the best chance for a happy health life.
This is why I am an Upper Cervical Chiropractor. It has helped us live happy, healthy lives. And we love it.
