My Chiropractic Journey

Growing up in Davenport, I guess I’ve always been surrounded by chiropractic. It really came into the forefront of my life when my dad began school at Palmer. I remember walking through the halls with him and being fascinated by all of the different specimens in glass cases. It would be a few years before I decided that I wanted to be a chiropractor. My high school anatomy and physiology class furthered my interest in how the human body worked and cemented my decision: I was going to become a chiropractor. I loaded up the rest of my schedule with all the science classes I could and set my sights on the future. After graduation I attended Scott Community College and obtained the prerequisites necessary to enroll at Palmer College of Chiropractic.

While I was at Palmer I found my passion in helping others. During the clinical portion of my education I saw people that came to chiropractic as a last resort and found the relief that had been looking for for years. That’s when it all came together for me and I knew that all the hard work was definitely going to pay off. I graduated from Palmer in October of 2017 with my Bachelors of Science and Doctor of Chiropractic degrees and joined the practice shortly after.

Hobbies and Free Time

When I’m not in the office I enjoy spending time with my girlfriend Maggie, playing with our lovable mutt Sylvia, hiking, making music, and hanging out with family. I am lucky to have all of my immediate family in the area making it easy to see them whenever I like and allowing us to have get-togethers often.

Our Chiropractic Practice Philosophy

Our practice philosophy is simple. We want to help people get well, not just pain free. This is done by simply caring. True wellness is not just about pain (a symptom). It’s about having tools to get well and stay well. Many times symptoms come along because there is an underlying problem that causes them. The chiropractic adjustment helps to remove the symptoms, by removing interference in nerve flow, usually the root of the problem. We then offer patient ways to be proactive to try to keep symptoms from returning. This is done through things like stretching, exercises, and diet. Chiropractic combined with these three things help people get back to true health and wellness, not just pain free (symptomless).
