I know what it’s like to have debilitating back pain.
Many years ago, I played football at Bishop Montgomery High School in Torrance, CA and during my Junior year I severely injured my back while training before football season.
I could barely walk.
I was so worried and afraid that I was going to have to miss out on playing that season.
The reason why I was so scared was because, back then, football was my life.
I started seeing a chiropractor, but he actually made it worse.
Fortunately, I did not give up and began seeing a different Chiropractor (a guy by the name of Dr. Tim Ursich in San Pedro), who is still practicing. I’m extremely thankful for how he helped me.
Incredibly inspired by my results, I decided to become a Chiropractor and help others get out of pain as well.
Basically, I wanted to do for others what this Chiropractor did for me.
In fact, I was so eager to learn how to solve other people’s pain problems so I began taking post-graduate courses a few years BEFORE I was even accepted into Chiropractic school!
In 1988, I became trained and certified in a technique called the Nimmo Receptor Tonus Technique based off of Travels Myofascial Release Work taught by Dr. Sheila Laws.
I was so excited to start using what I learned at this seminar! I started working on anyone who had pain and would often be seen at work, releasing tight muscles of West End Tennis Club members on the gym floor, where I used to be a personal trainer. I had a lot of practice working on bodies before I even started Chiropractic school in 1990 (I hope I didn’t make too many of these people sore!)
When I got to Chiropractic school, I was fired up to become the best doctor I could possibly be.
I thought studying hard would make me a good doctor, so I was often the last guy in the library getting kicked out at 10pm every night. I guess it paid off because I made the Dean’s List every trimester, as well as the Delta Sigma Honorary Scholastic Society.
I knew it was important to be well-balanced so I was also the President of the Christian Chiropractic Club on campus, and President of the Gonstead Technique Club where I learned how to adjust.
Ten trimesters later and a little wear and tear on my body (remember we learned how to adjust by practicing on one another!) I ended up graduating Magna Cum Laude and was voted by my graduating class as “Most Likely to Succeed,” and I have the class yearbook somewhere in storage to prove it for those who think I made that up!
I tell you all this information because after all this effort to become a doctor, I thought that school would prepare me to fix anyone who crossed my path.
I was so excited to cure the world that I also tested and earned my license in Ohio and Hawaii.
So here I am, licensed in three states and ready to heal the world…only to discover that I was in for a rude awakening.
You see, I started practicing and soon found myself frustrated with the results I was seeing with my patients as many of them were not getting better.
I was performing treatments I learned in school on my patients, thinking it would solve their problem, but it didn’t help most of them. In fact, some people were made worse after they received a treatment from me…ouch, this really hurt…literally and figuratively.
I was confused. Here I spent the past 8 years learning how to make people feel well, but many weren’t being helped and some were worse off after they received my treatments. Then it dawned on me, “Maybe there was more to what caused my patients pain problems than what they taught me in school.”
This led me on a life-long journey to discover the REAL CAUSE behind PAIN.
I started attending every post-graduate course and continuing education seminar I could possibly get my hands on to learn other possible causes for people’s pain.
Over the past 23 years I have invested thousands of hours and well over $100,000 on post graduate learning so I could get to the root of your pain and assist to end needless suffering.
I also researched the most modern advances in pain management devices and invested in the latest cutting edge technology to get the results my patients were starving to receive.
As a result of all this, I have developed my own technique, completely unique to the Chiropractic profession, called The Taylor Method. The Taylor Method helps to pinpoint exactly where the source of the problem is coming from, and the results are nothing short of amazing!
I wrote a book that explains a little more about what I do in a book called, “Insider Secrets to Get Rid of Your Pain! – Discover the Taylor Method ~ Enjoy Life Without Pain”
You can find it on Amazon and I think you will find it helpful and informative.
