Dr Klein's 'My Story"
History & Philosophy.
When I was in college earning a degree in business, I was rear ended and my car was a total loss. I did not know what to do, I could not sleep from the headaches, back & neck pain and other symptoms I was having. (numbness & tingling, difficulty concentrating etc). I did not know what to do, so I went to an emergency room at one of the local Hospitals. I thought ok they will help me. Well when I left with a handful of Vicodin they told me I would be fine "nothing was wrong with me". I thought ok I will take these pills and see what happens.
Well I took the pills as directed and guess what? I got worse, initially they took some of the pain away but I could not sleep, work or go to school and sit in those school chairs for 1.5 hrs per class. Eventually I stayed home from school slept on the floor and tried to struggle through work. I kept taking the pills until they were gone then I made another appt with the Hospital/ Medical Doctor. I thought for sure they would figure out what was wrong and help me out. Well Guess what, the help was "here are some more pills you will be fine".
At that point I was certain I was in big trouble. I see how people in pain get addicted to pain pills. I was getting to the point that if I wanted any relief I would need to take more pills which turned me into a Zombie and still could not sleep in my own bed or sit in class. Something had to change.
One day I was sitting with my college roommates and I told them what was going on, how I was having to chug pills and not getting any better. Then one of my roommates said "you need to go see a Chiropractor". I said a Quiro- what who? He said a Chiropractor. I had no clue what a Chiropractor was or did, I grew up in the Medical model and whenever something was wrong you went to the emergency room or hospital.
Needless to say I was at a crossroads at this point. Go out of my comfort zone and try this Chiropractor thing or continue to guzzle pills which at this point where doing nothing. I was desparate so I opened the phone book (the thing we use to use before this whole internet thing started) and looked for a chiropractor. I called a few of them close to my house and then I found one that specialized in car accident injuries. I scheduled an appointment and within 24 hrs and they had me in for an exam and xrays.
They took the time to tell me what was wrong and why I was feeling the way I did. They explained that the pills at best were just covering up symptoms that I needed to address because they would continue to get worse. My treatment plan consisted of Therapy & Adjustments. The first couple of treatments started to relieve the pain, within the first couple of weeks I was able to return to my normal life. With the continued treatments to help my body heal correctly over a few months I felt great.
Needless to say it made such an impact on my life, that I finished my Business Degree, complete the other undergrad work needed and enrolled myself in Chiropractic School. I was so committed at that point I finished the 4 yr program in 3 yrs. I wanted to bring my passion for this whole "Chiropractic Thing" to others.
Initally my medical family and friends where like where are you going to school? Chiropractic School.. no it is not in Guadalajara, it was in Hayward California the Best Chiropractic School in the Country, Life Chiropractic College West.
