I’m Robert Townsend and this is my chiropractic story…
Eighteen years ago lifting a log I injured my back, and experienced pain like I never had before. I felt a million years old. I tried stretching, massage and acupuncture; sometimes on the same day, in order to recuperate from my injury. Increasingly frustrated after nearly a year of stiffness and periods of intense pain; I followed a friend’s recommendation to see his chiropractor. Just like that, my progress immediately increased.
Wow! I still find bottles of icy hot and back pain pills from that era. I no longer need them. I cannot picture what my life would look like fifteen plus years later without having seen a chiropractor. I also noticed that some chronic health issues I had been experiencing resolved while under chiropractic care for the back issues.
I later became a massage therapist; and then decided to become a chiropractor while studying anatomy and physiology for my massage practice. The human body is amazing. Having watched my daughter grow up to be half my size in six years leaves me humbled.
The mission of my practice is to increase the quality of life in our community, by offering Chiropractic care as an alternative to needless suffering.
“My wife Leslie, my daughter Ana, and I are grateful to the community for the support and love we have received as our practice continues to grow and prosper.”
