Why I Became a Chattanooga TN Chiropractor

Chiropractor Chattanooga TN Ted Showalter

My story in Chattanooga TN

Being an emergency room nurse for a number of years, I saw patients with back pain come into the ER multiple visits without relief in Chattanooga TN. Prescriptions for pain medicine and muscle relaxants where most commonly given. The patient, in most cases, would return the following day without relief of symptoms and would be put on something different for pain. After seeing this for years I thought there had to be a better approach to helping people with back pain. That's when I became better acquainted with a friend's brother who was a Chiropractor. He explained that Chiropractors correct the underlying cause of pain rather than prescribing medications which just address the symptoms. This philosophy made sense to me and I looked into going to Chiropractic school having decided that this was the route I wanted to go to help people.
