My Life Was Changed Forever

I never knew that a whiplash injury would affect me 10 years after the accident. But when I woke up with severe neck pain, unable to move my neck, my life was changed forever!

A friend of mine suggested I see a chiropractor, a novel idea to me. So I went for an initial examination and x-rays, which showed a reversal of the normal curve in my neck, a sure sign of whiplash. After a few weeks of treatment, I was feeling 100% better. I was really impressed by this new (to me) kind of doctor. And his staff…they were so caring and helpful and positive about life! Soon thereafter, I began wondering about this treatment that had done so much for me. Why wasn’t it used more often? Why were people so resistant to chiropractic? How did it work?  These questions eventually led me to go back to school to become a Doctor of Chiropractic.

Chiropractic Education

After considering a number of schools, I chose to attend Parker College of Chiropractic in Dallas, TX. I decided on Parker for a number of reasons.  Parker offered a wide variety of chiropractic technique classes. I did not know enough about chiropractic to know about techniques, but I did know that I wanted to learn as much about this approach to health as I possibly could. The handful of chiropractors I knew all highly recommended Parker, as the founder of the college, Dr. Jim Parker, had an excellent reputation in the field as a chiropractor and as a teacher. My family and I were shocked to learn the intensity of the class load, and how comprehensive the curriculum was. 8 months of dissection in anatomy class and another 8 months of dissection class focusing on just the nervous system was challenging and exciting!

The Philosophy of California Chiropractic

Here at California Chiropractic, our goal is to determine the cause of a patient’s problem, and, if nervous system interference due to misalignment of vertebra or other bones is the cause, we gently “adjust” the joints to remove the interference. If the problem is not a chiropractic condition, we refer patients to the appropriate medical provider. We find that restoring and maintaining motion in the joints helps to keep symptoms at bay, but more importantly it helps patients live an active lifestyle. Isn’t that why we love living on the Central Coast? Our patients come in all shapes and sizes, from all walks of life, and are at all stages of life, from newborns to Seniors.

On a Personal Note…

I am the mother of 3 terrific children.  My daughter, Jessica, is a Registered Nurse, specializing in Labor & Delivery.  My son, Kyle, is a 2020 graduate of the Exotic Animal Training and Management program at Moorpark College.  My youngest son, Rick, is a Midshipman at the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD.

I’ve adjusted my children throughout their lives, since they were born.   They seemed to be healthier than other kids.  They never had ear infections, and were only prescribed an antibiotic one time throughout their childhoods. They did not fuss as babies, and did not stay up all night.  I am certain that the adjustments they received on a regular basis kept their bodies functioning well.

I love to garden and walk on the beach.  Recently, I took up knitting.  I try to live a healthy lifestyle, in body, mind and soul.  Some days I do better than others, but always I am thankful to live such a blessed life in a beautiful town!
