Luckily his mother took him straight to the local Chiropractor and in his words; “my life changed dramatically.”
The Chiropractic care got him back on his feet and loving life again. He regularly visited the Chiropractor as he grew up, keeping him in good health and developing nicely. This gave him the motivation and determination to go to University for four years to become a Chiropractor.

He loves to work with people of all ages and abilities, but most of all loves working with children and mothers to be.
