I never intended on becoming a Chiropractor. In fact, as I approached graduation from college, I had a job already lined up at the Philadelphia Stock Exchange. Drexel’s 5 year undergraduate degree was designed for students to go to school for 6 months and work for 6 months each year, so I was graduating with a full resume and was ready for life in the business world. When in high school, I suffered from frequent and severe migraine headaches which were debilitating and would put me down for the entire day. I was getting these headaches three times a week! I had seen every doctor under the sun, had CAT Scans and every test know to man. No one was able to help me or tell me why I was getting the headaches. Finally, friends of the family who were husband and wife chiropractors convinced me to come in for an examination. With treatment, I obtained full resolution from the debilitating headaches and was able to live my life again. Though I was thankful, I never considered becoming a chiropractor. Then, two months before graduating college, I was playing tennis and suffered an awful ankle injury. It was diagnosed as a severe sprain and left me on crutches for 4-6 weeks. After 4 or 5 weeks, it wasn’t much better and I still wasn’t able to put pressure on the on the foot. While at visiting home for the weekend, I went to the chiropractor for a tune up and was asked about my ankle. After examining and working on the injury, I was able to stand on my own two feet and left my crutches in their office. Later that night, while having dinner with my parents, I confessed to them my desire to become a Chiropractor. They offered their support and the rest is history. I am thankful that I found my calling. I believe that I was born to be a Chiropractor and those patients suffering with headaches and migraines have a friend in Dr. R
My mission is to make people realize that there is no such thing as “normal” pain. The person who thinks that his left knee
pain is there just because he is getting older, has no response when I ask him how old his right knee (that has no pain) is. If life were a light on a dimmer switch, I believe that most people are living their lives only half lit! The worst part is that they don’t realize that their room, and their entire world, can be FULLY illuminated. They are living in the dark and think that is all that life has to offer. You should wake up without the need of an alarm clock, feeling refreshed, have no pain and be ready for the day ahead of you. It is not until you DO feel this way that you remember that it is the way that you are SUPPOSED to feel.
