A Low Back Injury Sidelined Me

I played basketball in high school, and like so many active kids today, a sports injury turned into a daily problem for me. My mom was seeing a chiropractor at the time and she took me in to see if they could help with my chronic low back problems.

Better Health without Drugs or Surgery

Experiencing chiropractic’s success with his problems was all Dr. Pat needed to decide he wanted to help people in the same natural way. “Restoring health, vitality and motion without drugs or surgery was both simple and profound.”

Training in Chiropractic and Nutrition

Dr. Pat attended the University of Wisconsin-River Falls to complete his undergraduate degree in biology and chemistry. He then went on to Northwestern Health Sciences University and earned his Doctor of Chiropractic. The additional qualifications Dr. Pat holds include:

  • Certified Chiropractic Sports Practitioner
  • Certification of Qualification in Chiropractic Radiology
  • Certified in Nutrition by the state of Wisconsin

It was in 2007 that Dr. Pat decided he wanted to help patients further improve their body’s function with nutritional knowledge that would complement his chiropractic care.

Nutrient-poor foods stress the body and nerve system. Nutrition helps with the natural healing process of chiropractic.
