(22)

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you and your family. Fotheringham and chiropractic is both a very important and integral part of my life. Many people often wonder what chiropractic is and how can it help them. Unfortunately, there are many misconceptions about the effects and benefits of chiropractic care. Hopefully, I can shed a little light on what chiropractic is an

d why I chose to practice this particular branch of the six main healthcare professions recognized by the World Health Organization. Injuries from racing motorcycles are what originally got me involved with chiropractic. In fact, I was in the process of attending my second year in the pre-dental program at the University of Detroit Mercy when my low back pain had progressed to the point where I was in constant pain and could no longer exercise and race motorcycles. To be in this type of pain at the age of 20 and no longer have the ability to enjoy and perform in the sport that I loved so much, was almost unbearable. Luckily, my dad convinced me to visit the local chiropractor in town. Soon after the doctor performed his initial consultation and exam to verify that I was a candidate for care, my life would change forever. The doctor had found multiple subluxations, which are better known as pinched nerves. He believed that if he was able to remove the pressure on the nerve by utilizing chiropractic care, I would no longer be in pain. After several adjustments spanning a few weeks, I was no longer in pain and had also experienced a noticeable increase in overall range of motion and no longer felt near as lethargic as I once did. The science, art and philosophy of chiropractic believes that if a chiropractor can remove nerve interference from the nervous system through adjustments, that the body will be able to comprehend its environment and express this through radiant health. This experience was a revelation for me and quickly forced me to change healthcare professions. In 1996, I transferred from the University of Detroit Mercy to Oakland University where I would finish the pre-requisite requirements needed for chiropractic school. In January of 1999, I transferred to Life University located in Marietta, Georgia. Here I would finish the four-year doctoral program needed to become a doctor of chiropractic. While finishing graduate school I also managed to finish my bachelor’s degree in Psychology at Oakland University. As a fresh graduate in September of 2002, I moved back to Michigan and worked as an associate doctor for two years at a well respected clinic in Shelby Township. In spring of 2005, eager to build a clinic in the area that I grew up in, I decided to open my own practice in Clarkston, Michigan. As a young person, I always knew that I wanted to become a doctor and help people. It is a shear joy to be able to provide chiropractic services to people that need the care. Chiropractic can help in the reduction of many symptoms from headaches, neck pain, low back pain, auto accidents, workers comp, sports injuries, and even preventative care in children.

Hello Everyone,

I wanted to remind you the clinic will be closed Saturday, October 7th for Nola's 5th birthday. Most of you know I vowed to always take the day off for her birthday no matter what day of the week it falls on. This year it falls on a Saturday. We plan on taking her and a couple of her friends to Build-A-Bear Workshop, lunch at the California Pizza Kitchen so they can make their own pizzas and then back home for cake and gifts. All you parents told me they grow up too fast.....You were not kidding. What a blast this parenting thing is!! See you soon...

Nola starts developmental kindergarten at DA/Daniel Axford this Thursday..... 45 years after I was there. Now, that makes me feel old...lol.

Hello Everyone,

First, I wanted to thank those of you that voted us "Best of the Best" Chiropractor in Clarkston for 2022!! Much appreciated. I'm coming up on 18 years of practicing in Clarkston. Not sure where all that time went...and so quickly. It has been a blast serving this community and the surrounding towns over the years. I have been very blessed to have the opportunity to do so. Secondly, we will be closed on Christmas Eve. Normal clinic hours outside of that. I hope you have a Merry Christmas and a healthy and prosperous 2023!!
