Years ago I had an injury to my neck and shoulder while working out at the gym. I went to the medical doctor. He gave me the usual painkillers and muscle relaxants. I was also told to stop working out and to rest. After a couple of weeks I wasn’t getting any relief, it was actually getting worse. It was very frustrating. My brother told me several times that I should go see a chiropractor. Like everyone else I was skeptical. Finally, I was tired of taking pills, I couldn’t sleep and it was affecting my attitude. I went to the chiropractor. He did an exam, took some films and then "adjusted" my spine. The adjustment didn’t hurt it actually felt good. Within a few adjustments I was feeling much better and was back in the gym. It was great. I was enjoying life again. That’s when I decided to become a chiropractor.
My brother and I practice together. I feel very fortunate everyday to have my brother for my partner. Our main focus is your well being.

We make it a point to explain everything in advance, answer questions and attempt to over communicate.

Most people ask how I got interested in Chiropractic. My story is that while attending Springfield College earning by Bachelors in Health and Fitness, I suffered a neck injury while playing football. I had pain in the neck and down the right arm. I went through the usual, Medical Doctor and physical therapy with not much success. This was going on for approximately three weeks and very discouraging. I was loaded up with muscle relaxers, anti-inflammatories, and pain killers. A good friend of mine finally said "you need to see my chiropractor". I was like a what? He said come with me and I will show you. I went with him the Chiropractor did a history, examination, and x-rays he showed me I had a pinched nerve (more complicated than that) and he adjusted me that day. I immediately felt a release of pressure on my arm and I said to myself there is something to this. I told the Medical Doctor and the therapist that I went to the chiropractor they both advised against it. I said but I feel better! They said not a good idea. I don’t remember what reason they gave me but it wasn’t good enough for me. They didn’t even care that I felt better. I knew they didn’t have my interest at heart they had an issue with the chiropractic profession. I continued to see the Chiropractor with fantastic results. That’s why I became a Chiropractor.
After graduating from Springfield College in 1989, with a Bachelors in Health and Fitness. I pursued a Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Palmer College of Chiropractic and graduated in 1994. From 1994 until 2000 I practiced with another chiropractor in Seattle, Washington. I met my wife, Yvonne, 1998 we married in 2000 and moved to Massachusetts where I grew up.
