When I was a teenager I started seriously thinking about my future career and what God’s purpose was for me. There were 3 main things I knew I wanted it to include. I wanted to be fit, to help people, and I wanted to be a doctor. I had no idea how to pursue this path at 15 years old, until it hit me – literally.
I was a multi-sport athlete throughout high school and loved baseball and played football on the side for fun. During football my sophomore year in high school I was just recently moved up to the varsity squad when I was blindsided during a routine play at practice.
The pulling tackle that hit me was easily twice my size and strength, and everyone knew how serious the collision was the second you heard the resounding “CRACK” on the field. A shock of lightning was sent through my spine and my hands instantly locked to my helmet as I helplessly fell to the floor. I couldn’t move. Everything hurt.
I was forced to stay at home in a neck brace because the pain in my neck was unbearable and lifting my arms was near impossible.
The doctor gave me medicine to help with the pain, but if I wasn’t taking it, everything hurt. Sleeping was impossible, and moving my neck and limbs were excruciating tasks. I was worried I would never play sports, or even live a normal life again. I was scared and nothing was getting me better.
After roughly 3 weeks, my parents took me to another doctor. This one was different. He used his hands to find the areas that hurt, and even showed me other areas that needed help restoring movement and function. He educated me approached me like no other doctor had before, and it changed my life. He was a Doctor of Chiropractic. His approach showed me that with just a little push, the human body can heal and do amazing things on its own.
He gave me my body and LIFE back.
In just 4 weeks of treatment and at-home exercises, I went from barely being able to pick up my head and arms, to being able to suit-up for our football teams state championship game.
He showed me what it took to get my body to heal itself.
From then on, I knew exactly what I was going to do with my life. I was going to become a Doctor of Chiropractic. I was going to use my knowledge to implement the best strategies to keep myself fit; and I was going to use that knowledge to get me into school to become a Doctor of Chiropractic so I could help others the same way I was helped. It all became so clear to me how I was going to fulfill God’s purpose for me.
While I was finishing my Chiropractic degree, I was looking for the right place to go out into the world and share my purpose. I wanted to find the right place to build myself around like-minded doctors and staff. My school mentor introduced me to Dr. Amonette and Awesome Family Chiropractic. He said to reach out and talk to him, because it sounded like we both had a similar background and vision for the future to help people. I had visited many offices before this one, but none left the impression and feeling I had when than leaving THIS office. There was something special about this place, and I HAD to be a part of it.
Fast forward to today – and I am part of an AWESOME team that is dedicated to the lives of the people that walk through the doors to our office every day. Our mission is to help as many people as we can, and to educate them on the body’s incredible ability to heal and regulate itself. We want to be the AWESOME doctors we had when we were younger for as many people as we can going forward. Our goal is to show YOU how you too can LIVE AN AWESOME LIFE.
This brings me to a special invitation:
Conditions like headaches, neck pain, low back pain, and sciatica are the body’s way of saying something is wrong. If left untreated they can lead to chronic and severe pain.
Because we're committed to helping as many families as possible we're offering a consultation, exam, posture assessment, and adjustment for only $49. This is normally valued at $125. We have helped many people with these conditions using safe and NON-SURGICAL methods. Call or text (619) 465-4880 or contact us to sign up for an appointment.
Our schedule fills up quickly and we only have room on the appointment books for a limited number of new patients each month. Call us today before the symptoms worsen and spots are all taken.
Yours in health,
Jonathan Marshall, DC
