Chiropractor in Englewood & Port Charlotte :
Meet the Doctors

After the initial evaluation, if your case is best treated by a traditional chiropractic technique called the Thompson Technique, which was developed in the 1950s, we will not need to take x-rays and we can get started on your treatment immediately.

Thompson technique works best for people who don’t have long standing problems. If you do have long standing problems that require a more in-depth analysis, we will. However, 95% of our patients are treated on their first visit and we don’t have to see them more than 3 or 4 times total. I have been given one of the highest ratings by Blue Cross Blue Shield for patient satisfaction and positive outcomes.

My treating Philosophy

I treat all my patients the way I would want my mother treated. This means a warm, caring atmosphere where we determine the best treatment options. I believe a Multi-disciplinary approach to health care is best because it provides better treatment outcomes than either medical or chiropractic when used alone…

I have earned a chiropractic degree from Palmer College of Chiropractic, I am certified in physical therapy by the State of Florida, I have also earned a Bachelor of Science degree in General Science and have taught Anatomy and Physiology to pre-medical college students and the Scientific Method in the Sarasota School System. My clinical approach is to utilize the best scientific methods and draw from 27 years of chiropractic experience.

Low Back Pain and Obesity

I must admit that treating car accident victims has left me guilt free. No matter what their current health or weight, their pain is caused by trauma, compared to treating patients that have back pain because they’re obese. I used to bluntly tell low back pain patients that a lot of their pain would go away if they lost weight and became healthier. In the last 5 years, I have gained 40 lbs of weight. The weight has made my low back occasionally hurt. I know if I lost 40 lbs my low back pain would go away, but up until now I have been totally unsuccessful with weight loss. If I were to be totally honest with myself, I would have to eat smaller, healthier portions and exercise to lose the weight. Old habits die hard! It is much easier to watch athletes than being the athlete.
