As a young athlete who participated in many different sports, I became acquainted with the field of sports medicine and the role health care professionals play in keeping the body healthy. The help I received inspired me to choose a career in chiropractic so that I could offer similar help to others.

My dad’s concern and compassion for his patients also influenced my decision to pursue a career in health care. Watching the satisfaction and enjoyment he received from helping others improve their quality of life was a key factor in my decision. I look forward to introducing a new generation of Nebraskans to the benefit of chiropractic care.

I was born and raised in Grand Island, Nebraska. I attended the University of Nebraska-Kearney, graduating in 2004 with a degree in biology and minor in chemistry. In November of 2007, I earned a Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Northwestern College of Chiropractic in Bloomington, Minnesota. As part of my training, I completed a three month preceptorship at a multi-doctor clinic in Lincoln, NE. After passing my National Boards and becoming licensed in the state of Nebraska, I joined the staff at Grand Island Chiropractic Center.

I take the time to truly listen to my patients in order to customize a treatment plan designed to meet their specific needs and lifestyle. Through patient education, I encourage patients to take an active role in their recovery to speed the healing process and lessen the chance of re-injury.”

In addition to treating back and neck problems, I treat a wide variety of musculoskeletal conditions, such as injuries to the ankle, knee, hip, shoulder, elbow, wrist, and hand. Our office utilizes Cold Beam Laser Therapy, which has proven to be very effective in dealing with many of these injuries, as well as, electrical muscle stimulation and ultrasound. I also enjoy educating patients on the benefits of proper nutrition.

I met my wife, Erin, who is a photographer, at the University Nebraska-Kearney. We were married in September of 2007. We both enjoy traveling, spending time outdoors and getting together with friends and family. We are excited to be in Grand Island and look forward to getting involved in the community.

While my wife is a long distance runner, I enjoy playing basketball, softball, golf, tennis, and soccer. I am passionate about sports, whether participating first hand or watching from the sidelines, and enjoy helping patients recover form sports injuries.

Regular exercise and participation is sports has become a way of life for me. Whether lifting weights or running on the hike and bike trail with my wife, I enjoy staying active. Regular chiropractic care helps me minimize injuries that can have a negative effect on range of motion, strength, reflexes, endurance, and ultimately, performance.

I look forward to meeting you and seeing how chiropractic can help you. Contact us today for an appointment!
