Freeing you from neck and back pain is my mission.
My father suffered for many years from back pain caused by disc herniations. Medications, hospitalization, and an endless number of visits to doctors provided no real answers to his problem. His plight inspired me to investigate the causes and treatment of back pain.
After earning my Bachelor and Master Science Degrees, I entered the Ph.D. program in the Department of Physiology at the University of Pittsburgh, School of Medicine. For the next two years, I reviewed hundreds of research studies on the origins and treatment of back pain. My conclusion:
This led me to Palmer College of Chiropractic. While serving as an Associate Professor of Diagnosis and Pathology, I earned my Doctor of Chiropractic Degree with Highest Honors. I received more than a degree from Palmer College; I received a truly remarkable education in natural health care. I learned that true health and healing come from within, not from taking painkillers and muscle relaxants. I learned that natural therapies can be remarkably effective in the treatment of pain, especially neck and back pain.
In 1986, I began my practice for the natural treatment of neck and back pain in Burke, Virginia. I was determined to break out of the typical clinical “mold”. You know, the superficial consultations and exams, the cold impersonal treatments, or the attitude that you are your disease instead of a person with goals and dreams.
If I had to describe our therapy in three words, they would be Safe, Soothing and Rejuvenating. Many of our patients refer to our office as "The Back Spa". At our clinic, the journey is as important as the destination. Your therapy will be designed to be pain relieving, relaxing and comfortable. Your privacy will always be respected.
Thank you for visiting our site. May it be a source of hope and healing.
