A NUCCA Success Story
Although I’ve spent several years of my adult life on the West Coast, I was born in Illinois, spent my early childhood in Algonquin and graduated from Harry D. Jacobs High School. While in high school, I played basketball, baseball and soccer for Jacobs. I went on to play soccer for the University of New Mexico while earning my Bachelor of Science degree in Finance in 1999.
After graduation from the University of New Mexico, I worked in Chicago for Goldman Sachs, a financial services firm. While working a desk job, I was unable to keep the same level of physical fitness that I had while playing collegiate soccer. Symptoms from an old lower back injury began to surface as well. A childhood friend who is a chiropractor treated me for the back injury and taught me how much of a difference I could make in my community with a chiropractic degree. Wanting to help others the way he had helped me, I decided to change careers and enrolled in Life Chiropractic College West in the San Francisco Bay Area of California, graduating Magna cum Laude in 2008.
After graduating from Life Chiropractic College West, I reinjured my lower back, sustaining a significant herniation of a spinal disc. Severe pain limited my activities which ultimately began to cause loss of muscle mass and strength in my right leg. After researching for nine months almost every form of traditional and alternative treatments to avoid surgery, I scheduled a surgical consultation. Before going to that consultation, a chiropractic colleague encouraged me to seek out treatment using the NUCCA chiropractic technique. The night after my first NUCCA adjustment my wife immediately noticed I was “different”. I explained in detail the NUCCA procedure and how I already felt more improvement than I had with any of the other approaches I had tried since the injury. I felt hopeful.
During the next couple of months, I began to notice that other symptoms I had developed after the injury ALSO started to improve. Interestingly, my lower back pain and the rest of the symptoms improved at the same rate. My whole body was healing from within. Over the next year my body went through a whirlwind of changes; improvement followed by plateau followed by improvement, all scattered with some flare-ups. Thankfully, I was surrounded by encouraging chiropractic practitioners that used the NUCCA technique and had seen thousands of patients go through similar healing cycles. Ultimately, I experienced improvement in my overall physical, mental and emotional well-being.
My recovery led me to dedicate all of my professional time and energy to learning the NUCCA technique in an attempt to share this great experience with others! I worked as an associate with a chiropractor in Seattle, Washington who was experienced in the NUCCA technique for a number of years before starting my own private practice utilizing the NUCCA technique in Santa Rosa, California. I have successfully treated thousands of patients with the NUCCA technique.
Recently, my wife Cheryl and I moved with our two children, Maeve and Cormac, to Crystal Lake, Illinois to be close to my roots. I have opened a NUCCA Chiropractic office in Crystal Lake. I am dedicated to delivering the highest quality of NUCCA chiropractic care to to anyone that decides it is a fit for their health needs.
I look forward to seeing you!
