While attending SDSU, Dr. Dan suffered multiple injuries. He was in a lot of pain and seeing many different doctors and specialists. Nothing seemed to work. One day a friend referred him to a chiropractor. The chiropractor not only fixed Dr. Dan's aches and pains, he also helped him sleep better. By the end of Dr. Dan's freshman year at SDSU he was completely dedicated to becoming a chiropractor.
Today, what does Dr. Dan think is the best thing about being a chiropractor?
"It's being able to help people just like myself recover from the many issues that used to plague me. I decided to received my education at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. Palmer is the 'Fountain Head of Chiropractic', the original place where chiropractic care was started.
I made it my mission to work as hard as possible to excel at school and I did just that. While at Palmer, I focused on my future patients, as such, attended a multitude of seminars to master as many techniques as possible. I did my clinicals in Davenport Iowa and in Rock Island, Illinois.
I also traveled to South America for clinic abroad. That was the best decision I have ever made. Most of the people I saw had never seen a health care physician in their life. That experience really helped me fine tune my chiropractic techniques and physical diagnosis."
