In 1981 I injured my Low Back performing a heavy squat while weight training for my High School football season. I spent the next 2 ½ years visiting numerous Doctors and orthopedists who prescribed me medication and even 6 months of Physical Therapy.
Unfortunately they could not help my condition and I could not sit for more than 30 minutes without experiencing severe pain in my back…
My Mother then referred me to a Chiropractor that had helped her get rid of her Sciatica. After beginning treatment in 2 weeks I honestly felt about 90% better. In 2 months I was power lifting again. I was able to pursue my dream of playing college football and received a Scholarship to play for the University of Nevada.
At that time I made the decision to pursue a career in Chiropractic instead of Medicine. 3 years of College football, power lifting and 3 major auto accidents later I can safely say I have experienced an injury to almost every joint known to man!
Although these injuries have been frustrating at times, it has helped me to understand what my patients are experiencing and what treatments will work for their conditions.
This has prompted me to start Life Wellness Center in Lexington. After 21 years in practice I’ve found that some patients need a little more than just an adjustment. I am a manual adjuster specializing in Gonstead and Diversified techniques, but I have added Leander Flexion Distraction, Thompson Drop and Triton DTS Spinal Decompression to my repertoire.
We have top of the line physiotherapy modalities including Hill multi wave form muscle stimulation and dual frequency ultrasound. Our Wellness Center includes Carbon based Infra-Red Sauna, fitness vibration, Hydro massage bed, therapeutic massage and reflexology.
My goal is to help others get back in their “game” through quality care and by educating them on how to get well and stay well (3 John 1-2).
