While in college, Dr. Taylor used to be in the athletic trainers room daily doing ice and stem with very little relief. He began his pursuit of Chiropractic Medicine after suffering a low back injury in 2007. After only getting temporary relief from medication and physical therapy, he saw a chiropractor for the first time. Instead of just trying to fix the symptoms, she showed him how his previous sports injuries had caused his body to compensate leading to his current condition. After restoring function and range of motion to these other areas, Dr. Taylor noticed lasting relief and increased performance in all his athletic endeavors.As a higher level athlete with more than a few serious traumatic injuries, he was amazed at how much better he felt even after dealing with these injuries for years.
He vowed that he would get the word out and after a successful career as an IT Consultant, he decided to go back to school to become a chiropractor.
