Why I Became a Chiropractor

I first became interested in chiropractic because it had dramatically helped my own headaches and lower back pain. I also suffered with sciatic leg pain which would radiate to my right knee off and on for years. Although I considered myself a healthy person, I physically felt much older than I actually was. I saw my first chiropractor in 1981 after a good friend convinced me to go. Ignorant of what chiropractic was, I was looking to get relief of my symptoms. I wondered what a chiropractor could do for me that my regular medical doctor couldn't do. Being a student on a tight budget, I was reluctant to spend money on something that I did not understand or may not work. By then my back and leg pain had worsened to the point that I was taking pain medication regularly. Therefore, it was as a last resort that I tried a chiropractor.

My first experience was a very positive one. Not only did it help me with my main problem, but it also helped me with my posture, flexibility and tension. Up until that time I had lived with back pain and headaches. After that time I found the spinal adjustment to be therapeutic and effective without having to take medications. After that time I found the chiropractic spinal adjustment to be both cost-effective and therapeutic. That was nearly 20 years ago. Soon after, I went back to the State University of New York at Stonybrook and completed the last of my entrance requirements for chiropractic college. I was accepted to Life Chiropractic College in 1983. I recieved my Doctorate of Chiropractic in 1987. That same year I opened my first practice in Berkeley, California. In 1990 I moved to New York City and opened 78th Street Chiropractic in the uppereast side. Finally, in 1994 I opened my present practice, Spring Street Chiropractic. I am licensed to practice chiropractic in New York, California and Washington, D.C.
