Spinal Decompression/Expert Profile

Ask A Question


I was originally trained as a chiropractor and was in practice for 24 years. I've been asked every question related to back and neck pain and what to do about it that can be imagined. With additional training I now specialize in the new treatment of non-surgical spinal decompression for the treatment of acute and chronic neck pain and back pain due to herniated, degenerated discs.

Experience in the area

A practicing chiropractor for 24 years plus 5 additional years practicing at Triangle Disc Care in Raleigh, North Carolina specializing in Spinal Decompression for the treatment of acute and chronic neck pain and back pain due to herniated, degenerated discs.


Nearly 30 years experience Southern Illinois University Logan College of Chiropractic
