"I was introduced to the world of Chiropractic care when I was just ten years old. At the time, I was diagnosed with scoliosis (curvature of the spine) by the school nurse, and my mother decided to take the advice of a co-worker and have me evaluated by a Chiropractor. Three years after my initial diagnosis, and with regular chiropractic care, my spine completely straightened. That left quite an impression on me."
