"Seventeen years ago something happened to me that changed my life forever. Back then I was working for the government and very actively involved with all forms of sports. While lifting weights one day, I felt a "pop" in my neck. The pain in my upper back and neck was so intense that I couldn't turn my head, concentrate on my work, and sometimes couldn't even button my shirt. I was afraid that I would lose my job if the disability continued. After considering pain killers and muscle relaxers (which I thought would cover the pain and not solve the problem) I decided against it. But there's more.
"My boss at the time, Verne, convinced me to give a chiropractor a try (and rather strongly, I might add). The chiropractor did an exam, took some films, and then "adjusted" my spine. The adjustment didn't hurt, it actually felt good. I got relief, and I could move again. It worked so well that I went to chiropractic school myself.
"Looking back, it was a life changing experience for me. I graduated in 2000 from Palmer College of Chiropractic and have been in active practice ever since. I am adjunct faculty at Palmer for their Clinic Abroad Program, where we set up clinics in poor countries around the world. My favorite place is Bolivia. I am also faculty at a local college and teach anatomy & physiology and pathology. I hold an Advanced BA in Economics from the University of Saskatchewan.
"I utilize Palmer Package adjusting, Activator, Thompson Drop technique and Cox Flexion/ Distraction for lumbar decompression therapy. I attempt to find the right technique for each patient. We always try to treat people the way we want to be treated."
