Wow!! I cannot believe it’s been 26 years that I have been practicing chiropractic all of which have been on Maple Street in East Longmeadow, Massachusetts. When I first became a chiropractor my children were not yet born. Now my daughter, Lauren, is a recent college graduate and my son, RJ is a senior engineering student at University of Massachusetts Amherst.
I graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa when I was 38 years old. Before becoming a chiropractor I taught elementary physical education in the Chicopee Public Schools for 12 years. I coached soccer and baseball at Chicopee High School and I also volunteered with the Special Olympics.
I discovered chiropractic care like most people because of spinal pain; specifically low back pain.
I suffered with back pain occasionally while growing up playing baseball and soccer in high school and in college. In 1981 I bent over to pick up something and the low back pain just didn’t go away!
The traditional medical route I initially pursued had zero success. In fact I was told, “you have something wrong with your back but there is nothing we can do.” Because of this and as a last resort, I went to a neighborhood chiropractor.
That is when I discovered the tremendous benefit of chiropractic care! My spinal pain improved immediately after my first treatment and continued to improve after several more treatments. I now have regular chiropractic treatment.
Because of my personal situation, I resigned my job as an elementary physical education coach and enrolled in Palmer College of Chiropractic. I have never once regretted the decision. I have enjoyed the last 20 plus years providing chiropractic care to needy patients to help alleviate their pain.
So please do not hesitate to call our office if you are experiencing pain. I would love to sit down with you to discuss your problem and provide you with suggestions on how to treat your symptoms. Our consultations are always free. If after we discuss your problem area of pain you decide chiropractic is not for you, you will not be charged or obligated to receive any treatment.
Thank you and we hope to hear from you soon.
