Interests

I enjoyed working as a chiropractor for 18 years, which is essentially clinical applications of anatomy and physiology. I am especially interested in functional anatomy, muscle imbalances, and their effects on the essential core stabilizers of the spine. My career interests have also included studying and teaching patients about incorporating healthy lifestyle choices to optimize health. I have taken over 600 post graduate hours in biomechanics and nutrition with a special emphasis on a ketogenic diet as a solution to metabolic syndrome and many chronic diseases that plague the US.
