My First Post!

Hello to all.  This is my first post on my blog.  This blog is to teach you and your family the truth about chiropractic and the principles it was founded on.  I will also make posts about your health including nutrition, exercise, stress reduction, etc. Those type of posts will serve as a compliment to chiropractic and from a chiropractic perspective.

Let me give you a little about myself for those of you that do not know me.  I am currently a 11th quarter student in chiropractic school at Life University.  There are 14 quarters... meaning I graduate in  March 2013!  I look forward to serving as many families as possible through out my life.

I was first introduced to chiropractic when I was 9. I started gymnastics when I was 2 1/2 and by age 9 I was at practice 20-25 hours a week.  For years this demand was on my body and I started having all kinds of pains; knee pain, heel pain, wrist pain, low back pain, etc.  One of my teammates was seeing a chiropractor and her mother suggested I go.  After my first adjustment I remember saying to my mom "WOW, this is so crazy, I just feel so relaxed and all aligned this is the best feeling ever!  Can I keep coming!?"  I kept going back and because of chiropractic I was able to continue with gymnastics for many years.  I was taking first place at many different gymnastics competitions because I was operating at my optimal potential!

I got my bachelors degree from Central Michigan University in Exercise Physiology.  I knew deep in my heart I wanted to be a chiropractor since I was 9, so I continued to pursue this.  After being in chiropractic school for a year I found out that chiropractic was bigger than neck pain, back pain, headaches.  Chiropractic is about optimal potential in ones own body!  I am so blessed that becoming a chiropractor is part of the path of life I am on.

I look forward to sharing my passion and mission with each and everyone of you.  Thank you!

  1. Thanks for sharing your experience, Amy! I'm sure that many will be inspired to try chiropractic care after reading it. Compared to other therapy and medicines that take effect quickly, chiropractic care may take time before you feel its effect. But when the effects start to kick in, you'll know that your patience will be paid in full.
