I Chose Chiropractic Because…
I’ve always admired people who chosen a profession that brings a positive impact to society–a profession that requires a selfless service to the public. When I was exposed to chiropractic in my early teens, I knew it was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.

“I feel that chiropractic is a great profession, but it is important for a student that is contemplating choosing chiropractic to be sure that they are making the right choice for themselves. Take everything that you possibly can from the experience so that you have a good understanding of what chiropractic truly is.”
