Horse and Dog Adjusting Seminar

Horse & Dog Chiropractic Seminar A Success

"Pretty hard to describe the feeling of teaching with my son this coming Saturday in Spartanburg,South Carolina," says Dr. Jay Komarek. "Animals, family and the principle of Chiropractic all coming together. The quickest way to learn about subluxation is to just watch an animal get adjusted. It's a game changer."

A total of 51 people attended the seminar, and about $3,000 was raised to benefit the college. The combination of father and son was both enjoyable and intructive, according to faculty member Mitzi Schwartbauer, D.C.

"You guys really opened my eyes to the options that you have when it comes to chiropractic," Kristin Elizabeth Erickson posted on Facebook, "and I just want to let you know you inspired me. "
