When the emergency room nurse told me to see a chiropractor, I thought she was nuts! I told her I had 'real' pain and needed a 'real' doctor. Well, I guess we know the rest of that story.
Chiropractic exceeded my expectations and turned my life around. In the process of getting healthy, I learned so much more about my body than any of the 'real doctors' had ever explained. I decided I wanted a career of showing people how the human body is a self-healing, self-regulating organism. Knowing that I had some control over my health and future was a new beginning.
I finished my undergraduate work at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and was accepted into Logan College of Chiropractic of suburban St. Louis in the spring of 1981. The word, 'doctor,' literally means 'teacher,' and I feel a large part of my responsibility is to open patients up to what is possible. When they accept that the actions and decisions they make either build or sabotage health, they can increase the likelihood of enjoying pain-free, healthy living. To see a patient really 'get it' is a thrill. Patients who ask questions and take responsibility also get consistently better results. Seeing a person who has been told to 'live with it' start taking control and living with less pain and more function is deeply satisfying. To ensure patients throughout Nebraska have a successful experience with chiropractic, I serve on the board of directors for SecureCare, a division of the Nebraska Chiropractic Physicians' Associa
I married my wife, Kelly, a month before beginning chiropractic college. Now, we have four boys, Josh, Jared, Jamie and Jackson. Jackson, our youngest, has juvenile diabetes and, when Kelly found out there was no support group for these kids in Lincoln, she enrolled us all in a vision for our community's children with diabetes, and I am currently on the board of directors for the Lincoln chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). For our family to come together and provide a much-needed service for our community is an enriching experience.
In my spare time, I play golf, and I love to cook. If I wasn't a chiropractor, I might be a chef and have a restaurant of my own. I find that home is certainly where the heart is, and home is where we find the best within ourselves. I love watching movies or just hanging out with all my family around.
I was told at age 19 that I had a degenerative disc. I still have it, but I feel that a healthy lifestyle, regular chiropractic care and exercise have allowed me to lead a very active life without many limitations at all. Along with our medical and dental visits, my family gets regular chiropractic care and leads active and healthy lives as well.
