Why I Chose Chiropractic

I grew up with traditional Western medicine for my medical care. I was plagued with frequent ear infections in my first year of life, which led to recurrent bouts of antibiotic use and failed tubes. It wasn’t until a neck injury sustained in high school that I found and experienced chiropractic. During the treatment of my neck injury, I learned about all the conditions chiropractic can help with, including ear infections!

Prior to “discovering” chiropractic, I had always felt there had to be another approach to medicine other than what I had experienced. I had a hard time wrapping my head around the idea that some people just had these conditions and medicine was the only way to treat it. Many times when going to the doctor, I would leave frustrated because I felt that I never understood the root cause of my condition and that my treatment was only to mask the symptoms, never truly rid me of the cause. Having a hard time swallowing pills, I usually wouldn’t take anything and began to realize that eventually my body would work its way through the problem, provided I provided my body with the necessary tools to do so- being well-adjusted, properly hydrLSP-71ated, and eating a well-balanced diet. I began to realize first-hand the intelligence and self-healing ability of the body. So, when I really learned and understood the essence of what chiropractic is, I felt like I had found the missing link to healthcare.

It was after this that I became impassioned the share my knowledge of chiropractic with those around me and discuss why it is important that everyone get checked for subluxation. Chiropractic is for people of all ages because every person has a nervous system and it is through our nervous system that we live. It is the job of the nervous system to perceive and coordinate its environment and adapt as necessary. If at any point there is interruption via misalignment/subluxation in the communication between the brain and the body, our body is not functioning at 100%, therefore not expressing life at 100%. Put more simply, when the spine is unsubluxated the body functions as it was designed to, but when the spine is subluxated it creates an environment of stress within our bodies. When our intelligently designed bodies can no longer overcome that stress, we begin to express symptoms/feelings of poor health.

After the birth of my son, my passion for chiropractic grew, as did my desire to work with kids, pregnant moms, and families. Keeping moms adjusted and subluxation free can help with relieving some discomforts of pregnancy, ease the labor and delivery process, and help decrease the risk of intrauterine constraint. When discussing babies, birth, although completely natural, can be a very stressful process, which often leads to a subluxated state. Infants and children experience bumps and falls as they begin to experience their environments. These seemingly insignificant events can lead to subluxation. As discussed earlier, subluxation leads to decreased communication in the body and this communication is vital to growth and development. It is my mission to begin incorporating, what I feel is the missing link, chiropractic, in healthcare, so the people of Stevens Point and surrounding communities, can experience life fully.

I look forward to serving you!
