I get asked all the time why I chose to go into the chiropractic field. The answer is really simple. I was not happy with the options for pain relief that were out there.
I grew up as a multi-sport athlete and with that came injuries. Every injury I sustained seemed to receive the same recommendations; take medication and rest. Every athlete can agree that the last thing you want to do is rest and not participate. As most of us do when we are younger I never listened, continued to participate and most likely sustained further damage.
