Why Am I A Chiropractor?

When I write a blog or newsletter article, I often search the internet to find out what others have to say on the subject.  I usually get some good ideas and sometimes find articles that are written in a way that expresses my thoughts better than I can myself. Personally, I initially became interested in chiropractic because my mom suffered from migraine headaches for as long as I could remember and she found relief through chiropractic.  At the time I was in college studying medical technology and had become disheartened with the allopathic approach to medicine and the lack of patient centered holistic care.  Frankly, when I went off to chiropractic college I really didn’t truly understand the impact chiropractic care could have on an individual’s health.  As a student, I fully embraced the philosophy science and art of chiropractic and have continued to do so in the past 32 years of practice.  I love what Bill Esteb’s Chiropractic Why Statement.  I don’t think I could say it better myself.

 

  

Because I honor the inborn potential of everyone to be truly healthy.

Because I desire to help the newborn, the aged, and those without hope.

Because I choose to care for the patient with the disease, not the disease.

Because I wish to assist rather than intrude; to free rather than control.

Because I seek to correct the cause, and not its effect.

Because I know that doctors do not heal, only the body can heal itself.

Because I have been called to serve others.

Because I want to make a difference.

Because every day I get to witness miracles.

Because I know it is right.
