Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?
My story begins roughly 20 years ago when for an unknown reason I developed debilitating, radiating pain down my left leg into my foot. I worked diligently to rid myself of the pain, trying chiropractic, physical therapy, acupuncture, cupping therapy, epidurals and medications. Ultimately none of these things worked and at the ripe old age of 26 I had low back surgery. No regrets here. I tried everything I could without having having to go under the knife. The surgey was a huge success, for the 1st time in 6 years I woke up with no pain and I could put my pants on and tie my shoes without having to be a contortion artist to get it done. This very personal experience changed me to the core. I knew there were other people out there suffering like I had, I decided I wanted to help them. I wanted to hopefully help them (you) avoid some of the same pitfalls that I experienced, to hopefully avoid all the problems in the first place. I decided to change careers and to go to back Chiropractic school at the age of 29. I graduated from Life University in 2005 cum laude. I now have two practices, one in duluth (Duluth MultiCare) and one in Roswell (Vitality Sports Chiropractic). I specialize in sports/athletes, family, and extremity adjusting. I am a Certified Kinesio Taping practitioner, and a Certified Graston Technique practitioner, providing me with the expertise to care for athletes across all sports. I have also developed a diverse array of techniques to care for the whole body. As a weekend athlete I have enjoyed working with both amateur and professional athletes. I served as the team Chiropractor for the GA Force during the 2012 season and currently work with several of the local high school providing care to their student athletes. In my spare time I enjoy skiing, swimming, running the trails, and spending time with my wife and two children. My motto on patient care: “My goal is education, so my patients can make informed and insightful decisions about their health care” I make this promise to you: I will do everything within my knowledge base and expertise to put the puzzle pieces together in a way that will help to foster lasting change.
What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?
Soft Tissue/Sports injuries. Graston soft tissue Technique, Kinesio Taping, Extremity adjusting
What are you proud of in your practice?
The quality of the care we give. We are not a mill, you will not be rushed out of the office. We will spend the time with you until we feel we have gotten the treatment correct.
Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?
That's like asking which of my children I love the most. Can't answer that. Each case is different and brings with it a new set of challenges and puzzle pieces to be sifted through.
