Dr. Christensen began receiving chiropractic care at the age of 11. At the time he was suffering from weekly headaches that had been a problem for several years. After his first chiropractic adjustment the headaches went away, never to return. After that time chiropractic care helped him and his family to all be much healthier and led them to a health conscious lifestyle. According to Dr. Christensen: “Chiropractic not only helped me with my headaches, but everything in my body seemed to work better. At the time I thought headaches and frequent sickness (every other month it was the flu, or a cold, or indigestion) was normal. With Chiropractic care all of those problems went away. I never missed school again for being sick. I didn’t have to rely on all the over-the-counter medications any more. This same story was true for my entire family. The younger children, who received chiropractic care, missed all the “normal” sickness (like constant chronic ear infections) that the older children (me included) had to endure growing up.” This change is what motivated Dr. Christensen to become a chiropractor. “I wanted to help people in the same way I had been helped. I wanted to help people in a natural way, not just covering up problems with drugs” says Dr. Christensen.
