After receiving a Doctorate in Chiropractic, I began practice in High Point in 1979 concentrating on treating back pain, neck pain, and headaches. As patients improved, I wanted to help with maladies that I noticed some patients were taking a lot of medication for like high blood pressure, esophageal reflux, and an increase in cholesterol. I decided to become certified in internal medicine because despite advances in medicine, rates of heart disease, cancer, and diabetes, for example, continue to increase in our society. I realized that treating the symptoms with medication was not the solution. Prevention; however, will always be the best medicine. The purpose of Chiropractic is to remove nerve interference caused by spinal misalignment and allow normal nerve function to restore the patient’s health and prevent disease.
It is our God given potential to be healthy but similar plants, we too require circumstances to thrive. Nerves that control our regulation and function can be affected by pressure, tension, and stress. Nutrients from foods can be poorly absorbed by inadequate digestion. Irregular bowel habits wiill produce a deficient immune system that can eventually result in a chronic illness. Sedentary lifestyles create premature deaths. Medication and surgery can no longer address underlying problems. Prevention is the new medical frontier today!
The mission of this office is to add life to the years and years to the lives of the patients we have the priviledge to serve. If after a thorough consultation, history, and examination we can help you, we will recommend a plan to put you back on track to a healthy active lifestyle. If we can not help, we will tell you so and find someone who can.
