I have always been interested in healthcare and knew it would be the best road for me to take early in life. Working construction in my high school years led me to value the basic structure of any house, while chiropractic led me to value the basic structure of the spine and the human body. My undergraduate course work started out at Mankato State University where I had the opportunity to work at the largest chiropractic office in the area for 4 years. This experience very much solidified why I wanted to become a doctor of chiropractic. I choose to attend Northwestern Health Science University for chiropractic school because of their solid foundation in the clinical sciences and diagnostic skills. It was also the closest to my family and friends in southern Minnesota and the family farm. My goals for practice are very simple and straightforward. Most people are drawn to chiropractors because we specialize in pain management and relief. My primary goal is get you out of pain as quickly as possible so that you can resume your normal daily activities without discomfort. Corrective and rehabilitative care is always an option for you, which can decrease your chance for future aggravations of the same condition. My care is always patient centered and patient choice. I give honest and sincere advice and allow the patient to make the ultimate choice of care.
In my own life, an active lifestyle and regular chiropractic adjustments, along with a good diet and exercise, help balance daily work and stress levels. I encourage you to consider Brookings Chiropractic Center (605-693-7222) as a resource of information and education to help achieve your health goals and maintain the most precious asset you will ever own – YOUR HEALTH.
