I’d given up and thought that I’d have to live with the pain.

Let me tell you what happened. After I got out of the Navy in 1992, I used the G.I. Bill to go to college. I was attending the University of Wisconsin-EauClaire. At the time, I was studying to be a geologist. To burn off some nervous energy the night before a particularly difficult final exam, I went for a run with my roommate. As we were running at the school track we came upon a sand-pit where the school track team practices their running long jumps. Being competitive young men we decided to challenge each other to see who could jump the farthest. I landed awkwardly while jumping and immediately had incredible low back pain.

The pain was so bad that I could barely even get up! I did eventually manage to get back to my dorm room but was unable to sleep that night due to the pain. I ended up taking all of my final exams that week hunched over the desk in agony! Being young, I was still under the illusion that I was invincible. However, after over the counter medicine no longer helped with the pain, I decided to swallow my pride and get help. Unfortunately, I didn’t know where to turn. That’s when my uncle convinced me to give chiropractic a try. The chiropractor did an exam and told me that my spine was out of alignment and was irritating the nerves to my low back and legs. Then he “adjusted” my spine. The adjustment didn’t hurt, it actually felt good. I got relief and I could walk upright again. It worked so well that instead of becoming a geologist after I graduated from the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire in 1997, I went to chiropractic school instead.

I attended Northwestern Health Sciences University from 1998 through 2001. While at chiropractic school I learned that the body has a health potential. That potential is controlled by the nervous system in all of our bodies. I learned that by adjusting the spine we can improve the way the nervous system works and therefore improving the patients overall health. This approach to health fascinated me.

After graduating in 2001, I moved back to Texas in 2003 and opened Advanced Chiropractic in Temple. When we first opened we decided that our purpose would be to help as many people as possible regain and maintain their health using the highest of quality chiropractic care in a clean, friendly, professional environment. Since opening we’ve had the opportunity to help all types of patients. We’ve treated little babies to elderly folks in assisted living facilities. I often tell patients, “I was born for this”. What I mean when I tell them this is that my mission is to “Correct and Maintain Health Through Chiropractic” and I can’t imagine doing anything else.


I married Stephanie Wolfe in 2005. Stephanie’s roommate was a patient of mine and thought we’d make a nice couple. Even though her roommate was a shy person she invited Stephanie to attend a dinner health talk that I was giving so she could get a sneak peek at me and see if I was the type of person she’d like to be with. Apparently I passed the test and we were married within a year! Stephanie and I love to walk our dogs in Temple and visit family and friends.

I’ve seen for myself the miraculous benefits of chiropractic care. Therefore, I receive regular chiropractic care to help me stay out of pain and stay in tip top shape. This allows me to stay healthy and be the best doctor I can be in Temple.

Enough about me! How can we help you with today’s safe and natural chiropractic care? I consider myself an excellent listener and hope I get the opportunity to meet you in person and discuss your specific health challenge. Give our office a call or email me with the link below.
