I was introduced to chiropractic in 1974 after suffering with low back pain due to an injury received from farm work.

My parents tried traditional approaches to resolve my ongoing pain but it wasn’t until I visited a chiropractor that I got relief.

That inspired me to become a chiropractor. If you are suffering with pain, I UNDERSTAND what you’re going through.

Before attending Chiropractic College, I met a wonderful lady and we were married in 1983. Soon after we were blessed with three children, a boy and two girls.

Upon receiving my Doctorate of Chiropractic Degree from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 1989, I opened the Knoxville Chiropractic Clinic which I work in today.

All these years later, my family and I get spinal adjustments on a regular schedule. It keeps our nervous system interference-free, our immune systems strong and we don’t seem to get the bugs that go around. ( In fact, I have missed only 2 day of work in 23 years)
