My Chiropractic Journey
For 3 years I suffered from severe sinus infections. After I passed out from my prescription medicine, my parents took me to a chiropractor. That’s when my road to health began.
I was 14 when that happened. I remember my first chiropractic adjustment and how I immediately felt my sinuses draining. Relief was sweet! From that point on I never took any more medication for sinus problems. I went to the chiropractor for anything from a sprained ankle to a headache. My mentor for chiropractic was my brother-in-law. I watched his journey and knew that chiropractic was not just a career, but more of a calling. I knew that I could help people.
I completed my pre-chiropractic studies at the University of Minnesota prior to beginning my education at Northwestern College of Chiropractic. I chose this college for it’s outstanding excellence in education. The educational process was grueling, yet unbelievably rewarding. I had the ability to do my internship at Northwestern Health Science’s pediatric and obstetric clinic. This led me on the path to having a general family practice, with an emphasis on women and children.
My philosophy is based on the balance between mind, body and spirit. I obviously focus on the body. Specifically helping your body be free from nerve interference by identifying and correcting subluxations (misalignments) in your spine. I truly believe God designed our body to function optimally, yet most Americans accept a life of ill health, never knowing what true health is. I love to see the changes in people’s lives when their body is functioning well. The most exciting changes are in infants and children. With our care being tailor made to their size, their bodies respond very fast. Parents are always amazed, and thankful.
A Little About Me
My wife and I have 7 children. Yes, seven! Obviously with all their activities someone always benefits from chiropractic care. My children have always received chiropractic care within minutes after birth. That way I’m sure they did not suffer any spinal stresses during the birth process. During each pregnancy, my wife has received chiropractic care to ensure a healthy pregnancy. As you can imagine, our lives are very busy yet incredibly rewarding. Between school, church, sports activities of all kinds, etc., our family is always on the go. I am so proud of my family. It’s through them, that I am the doctor that you know.
I personally receive chiropractic care at a minimum of 1 time per week. Each week I meet with a personal trainer in order to help me stay strong and balanced. My diet is always in need of monitoring. I have an advanced certification in nutrition, which helps me stay one step ahead of the trends. Yet I also meet with our nutritional doctor who further coaches me on my diet. The effort is worth it. 40 and fit! That’s what I’m shooting for. I’m happy to say the my family believes wellness comes from within; therefore drugs and surgery are always our last resort. We believe, and have proven, that our bodies will function optimally without the interference of drugs or vaccines. Don’t get me wrong, health is an ever-evolving process for our family, but it’s worth it!

My Chiropractic Journey
The first exposure I ever had to chiropractic was not my experience rather my mom’s. She was experiencing daily headaches and decided to give it a try. To her surprise it worked better than any medication she had tried in the past and our family was sold. I personally started going on a regular basis when I subluxated a rib while stunting in cheer. Every breath caused a sharp pain straight into my chest. After a week of care, I was able to breathe with ease.
Through the care for my pain, I began to learn more about chiropractic and what it truly did to promote health and wellness rather than just treating illness. This was what truly drew me into the profession. I attended Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa where I spent years grinding and studying to achieve my dream of being able to promote health and wellness.
The belief that I have is that the greater powers out there have created our bodies to heal themselves and thrive. It is our job to provide the best environment for our bodies to be able to do what they were made to do. Through treating the misalignments in the spine, we are able to optimize the communication from the brain to the body and vice versa. There are many aspects to health and wellness and as a Chiropractor, I’m here to help you take control of your health.
A Little About Me
I am the middle child of 5, not as large as Dr. Krantz’s family but I am no stranger to a little chaos. Growing up all of my family was into sports, my sport of choice was soccer which I played year-round for both club and school. I stopped playing soccer when I graduated high school, but staying active is still a major part of my life. I enjoy working out in the gym, going for hikes and bike rides. I do all of this to keep my body along with my mind and spirit healthy.
Keeping my overall health with mind, spirit, and body in tip-top shape is of the utmost importance to me for a few personal reasons. The first of which is that I have type 1 diabetes. Keeping my blood sugars in check through diet, nutrition and exercise has helped me optimize my own health and learn a lot through my journey. The second was my father was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s my senior year of high school. This was a major wake-up call for me in my life and one of the biggest motivators to become a chiropractor and promote health and wellness to everyone.
