I am an avid outdoors man and golfer. I grew up in coastal South Carolina and love it here. I was raised in Latta, SC. After High school, I attended Clemson University and graduated with a degree in Health Sciences. I earned my Doctor of Chiropractic from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. Throughout my career I have wanted to return to South Carolina and I am happy to be back where I belong and doing what I love, helping people naturally.
My Chiropractic Story:
When I was 18 years old, I injured my back while water skiing. After a week of agonizing low back and leg pain, I went to a doctor who referred me to an orthopedist and later to a neurologist. After an MRI, I was diagnosed with two herniated discs in my low back. The pain in my back began to migrate to my right lower leg. The pain immediately impacted every aspect of my life.
I could no longer play sports or be active with my friends. The pain was excruciating. My leg not only hurt when I was active, but even more so when I was sitting. Sitting through my college classes was almost unbearable and the pain killers and muscle relaxers made concentrating on my studies nearly impossible.
After months of prescription drugs, that did more to further disrupt my life than ease the pain, and two epidural steroid injections, I was willing to try anything. I was quickly scheduled for back surgery. While the surgery was beneficial in relieving the pain, I lost a semester of college to the procedure and rehabilitation.
